Getting Surgery in Korea!

It's officially been a year since my surgery, and I wanted to share the slightly hilarious experience of staying in a hospital in Korea :)

Have any of you guys had surgery before?

I hope everyone is happy and healthy this year~

YOU FORGET TO BREATHE TOO!!!! I thought I was the only one! My coworkers make fun of me sometimes cause I'll forget to breathe and then inhale really big.

I got my gallbladder removed last year and I had never gotten anything removed before. I had to go on a specific diet weeks before the procedure and wasn't allowed to have green tea. I went to check in at 5am and was fine, the nerves started to kick in when I was in my own little module. I thought it looked cool because its a tiny room with a bed and tv and a shared bathroom with the person in the next module. I was told to change and they told me to remove my undergarments. I told my nurse that if she had special undies I could wear because I was on my lady days, she left the room and came back with the thinnest undies I have ever seen in my life and some pads. My Surgeon came in and talked to me and said we will be ready soon and that is when I got nervous. They wheeled me out of the room and I said see you later to my Mom. I only remember the bright lights and them getting me ready on the table. I woke up in the recover room with other people. The nurse kept telling me to breathe and gave me a breathing device to use. I told her I was thirsty but she said she couldn't give me water just yet. I also felt a lot of pain and needed to use the bathroom. My Mom took me to the rr and she was in there but gave me a bit of privacy, she did manage to make me laugh which hurt. It was a quick and simple procedure and I was in and out of the hospital that same day. They gave me good pain meds and told me what to do when I got home. Luckily I paid nothing for my surgery because I make less than a certain amount per year. Idk what I would have done with out my insurance covering it entirely. I once broke my pelvis and that was a much more painful experience than my surgery.
