My First Surgery
It was December 2012 when I had my ﬁrst surgery. It started on the night when my head felt very heavy. It was very worrying, I checked my body’s temperature and the result said that I was having a fever. It was ﬁne at ﬁrst, but the fever was getting worse and still going until I fell asleep.
The next day, me and my parents decided to go to the hospital. We went to an internist and then he suggested us to do a radiology examination. When all data were gathered, the doctor concluded that I have a chronic appendicitis and they have to take it out quickly before it gets worse. After hearing that, my parents then booked a room in the 3rd ﬂoor of the hospital.
I stayed in the room for few days, we have done all of the preparation. It all went well until the day before the surgery. An obstetrician came to my room to perform an ultrasonography because he said there were other strange things beside the appendicitis that I had. Unexpectedly, the result told us that I also have two ovarian cysts, each sized 6 and 8 centimeter. At the end, it was all set that the doctors are going to perform two surgeries at the same time, which was laparoscopic appendectomy and laparoscopic ovarian cystectomy.
Long story short, days have gone, the surgery have been performed. Me and my family were very relieved. Roughly, the surgery took 3 hours and requires 4 doctors to do it. The result was very satisfying, the scars are only 0,5cm each and also there was no pain at all.
Now, I’m still recovering. I’m still seeing the doctor for check ups and I still can’t do activities that requires more hard work than the usual. Maybe it wasn’t a very nice experience at all, but I’m glad that now it’s over before it got even worse.
