I had to have a deep conization surgery and prepared in this way:
Pre-op: On my brainstem I put Vetiver, Frankincense, Release. On my pelvic area (area of surgery) I put Clary Sage, Vetiver, Frankincense and Thieves. I also put Thieves on my feet.
Post-op: I focused only on my area of surgery (over the pelvic area) and applied Geranium (to slow bleeding) Clary Sage (cramping) Frankincense and Thieves and RutaVaLa. I repeated this every 3 hours on the first day of surgery until bedtime. I ALSO drank loads of water post-op with Ninxia Red in it (didn't measure amount but it probably totaled 6oz that day)
I had NO PAIN, NO CRAMPS! NO NAUSEA which I guess is common post anesthesia. The day after surgery, I woke rested and as if I had never had a surgery.I continued to apply the oils to the pelvis every few hours for the next 3-4 days and still NEVER HAD A CRAMP OR PAIN !For the whole deal I never needed to take so much as an aspirin !
I had asked the anesthesiologist to give me the bare necessity of drugs, that I didn't want any "for my comfort" drugs. I had surgery on a Thursday and was in my exercise class the following Monday with my normal level of energy.
To me this is a miracle as I've had plenty of colposcopies and have been uncomfortable with cramping (which I've discovered Clary Sage and Geranium are great for by the way). This was a much bigger procedure and because I used oils prior to and regularly post op it really made the experience no big deal. I was amazed and delighted. My husband and relatives were shocked that I was up and moving so soon after the surgery.
