Without anesthesia, Lucy was the first to bear the operation on her hands and knees while 12 visiting doctors watched Sims’ experimental procedure. According to Sims, her bladder had fallen, leaving an opening between the bladder and vagina approximately 2 inches in diameter. He referred to the operation as being on the “…eve of a great discovery…,” and said it was, “… tedious and difficult…” (237).

Sims made improvements on the instruments he constructed as he worked. Eventually, he inserted a piece of sponge inside the neck of Lucy’s bladder and sewed it up. Naturally, within days she developed what Sims referred to as “blood poisoning” (238), and became deathly ill. After 5 days, he cut open her sutures to remove the sponge, but it had hardened. Suffering from inflammation and infection, Sims wrote that he thought, “Lucy’s agony was extreme,” and “She was going to die.” (238). However, Lucy lived and Sims continued his experimentation.
