http://www.klsmc.com/medical-services/surgical-ward/room-rates-a-facilities.html . It's either the single executive / deluxe.. the pics looks the same. Anyway..i'm not sure whether all Dr Prashant patient did get this same room when they did the egg retrieval..
(Worth paying the RM17000, right).
After a while an anesthetics doctor came to our room explaining the anesthetics process.
He asked me some questions on my general health, any allergy to any medications and many others. Then we were asked to sign a consent letter that basically says that we understood the anesthetics procedure and its consequences.. Later, Dr Prashant came to see us. Explained briefly on the egg retrieval procedure. Then he left.
At around 9am.. the nurse asked me to remove all my clothes including undergarments and change to the OT clothes. Before i was taken to the OT (Operation Theater), the nurse asked me to pass urine.. need to ensure that my bladder is empty. A lady doctor came to my room, asked me to lie on the bed, put on my OT cap.. and then she push the wheeled bed to the OT, which was at the same floor.
There were like 10 people in the OT room.. wow..
I guess.. 1 was Dr Prashant, 1 was Dr Prashant nurse, 1 or 2 embryologist.
Then the were anesthetics doctor with his assistant.. the rest might be the OT room staff.
My heart started to pounding fast at that time.. dup dap..dup dap..
The anesthetics doctor inserted a needle and put a plastic wire on my left hand.. it was pretty
painful.. there was this guy, he put a clip on my thumb.. then a few wire on my body and plastic cover on my mouth ( i think it was the oxygen mask)..
Then the anesthetics doctor said to me, "OK.. i'm going to insert the anesthetics now. You will feel a bit pain at your head.". When he started to insert the anesthetics, my head felt something like a numb pain, hard to explain. Then.. ZZzzzzzzzzzzzzz... :)
I guess the procedure took about 1/2 hours.. meanwhile waiting for the procedure, my husband has his own mission.... to produce semen and give it to the clinic. Easy task eh ;P.
I was so deeply in a dream.. (seriously no pain at all.. ). Suddenly, somebody called my name. I slowly opened my eyes.. still sleepy.. my vision was a bit blurry.. but i can recognized the anesthetics doctor. He asked me few questions," Can you hear me.. Do you feel like vomitting.. are you ok?"... I answered," OK. No feel like vomitting. A bit pain". Then i blacked out again.. continue my sweet dream..hehe
30 minutes later.. i started to feel hungry. Remember that i've not eaten anything since last night.. then i said to myself, ooh..i need to get up and eat something.. else i will get my gastric. I forced my eyes to open.. and called my husband who was seating at the sofas next to my bed.. told him that i'm hungry.. he informed the nurse, but the nurse only allow me to drink plain water first to avoid vomiting.. oo ok...
15 minutes later.. the nurse brought me my pre-ordered breakfast which i've chosen from menu given to me before i went to the OT room for the egg retrieval.... my breakfast for today: scramble egg, baked beans, 2 slices of bread, chicken sosej and hot milo....yum yum... while i was enjoying my food.. i suddenly feel strong pain on my tummy.... i stopped eating.. suddenly lost my appetite.. asked my husband to finish all food... then i get back to sleep again..
At almost 12pm, the nurse came to my bed, remove the tagging around my wrist (the tag which have my name on it) and told me that i can discharged and go to see Dr Prashant at upper floor.Then I went to the bathroom... have light vaginal bleeding from the procedure.. After discharged from the ward, we went to the upper floor.
At the clinic, we went to see Dr Prashant & his nurse. He told me.. you got 15 eggs ! Even the medium follicles also have eggs. Oooo ok.. i was thinking i can get only 8 eggs based on my last scan.. Alhamdullillah.. He said that since there were quite a lot of eggs retrieved.. i might be having strong pain at lower abdomen later.. i can take paracetamol to ease the pain.
He then explained that the Embryo Transfer procedure is scheduled on 7 Oct 2010 (In 3 days time) at 11am. The nurse continue to explain in details on few matters :
1. What are the things to be done next
- continue the antibiotics Zinnat
- start Duphaston tomorrow, one morning and one at night
- Start Utrogestan tonight. 2 tablets to be inserted into vagina in the morning,
afternoon and night
- Take Dostinex starting tonight. One tablet for 3 nights
2. What should i do before i come for Embryo Transfer procedure
- must come to clinic with FULL BLADDER
- no make-up, powder, perfume etc.. same rule as the egg retrieval procedure
3. Other things
- to avoid spicy and oily food that would upset the stomach
- no heavy exercise for 2 weeks while waiting the pregnancy test
We did our final payment for the IVF package - RM5000 by cash. Before this, we've paid
RM3000 cash every time we came to the clinics for appointments. KA CHINGGG!!!! Payment completed.. what a relief..
Our journey back home was such a nightmare for me. Every time the car hit a bump.. or uneven road.. it caused my lower abdomen to be very painful.. Arrgghh.
When reached home, i can't hardly walk so my husband got this brilliant idea.. he took his IKEA office chair which has wheels.. then asked me to sit on it.. then he push the chair .. so that i dont have to walk.. ;).
<---- My "wheelchair".. hehe
Pheww, what a long day... jams
