I've already been through misoprostol 4 times since August 5th when we learned we lost our twins. After all of this, I still have a small amount ~1cm of retained tissue, so my OB is having me go through a D&C on 9/12.
1. The D&C will be using local anesthesia and ibuprofen / hydrocodone (vicodin), so I will be awake. Has anyone been through this awake who can comment on it?
2. I've never used any pain medication stronger than ibuprofen and I get panicky when my head doesn't feel like I can think clearly, so I am legitimately scared of taking hydrocodone (vicodin). I know I *should* take it because I don't want to get there and not be able to go through the procedure because it is too painful, but I am scared...
3. DH is taking the morning off work to be with me for the procedure. Should he plan on staying home with me all day afterwards or is it okay for him to go to work afterwards?
4. What's the recovery like? I am supposed to work the rest of the week (I have a very active job).
Thanks in advance for your help!
