But having it done under general anaesthetic was a very, very good idea. I'm so glad I didn't chicken out of that because I was worried about not waking up, since having them pulled out while awake would have really sucked. All I did was go to sleep like normal and then wake up like normal, albeit wondering where the fuck I was. And with aforementioned tampons in mouth.
I just noticed a lot of my posts have a subject line that is 'urghhhhh' or something similar.
