Stories of Surgeries – Day 2
More stories of surgery:
I spent some time researching and weighing up my options, honestly laproscopic surgery scared me when it came to this surgery, i was weighing up risks of complications vs recovery. Bowel complications scared me the most,, but complications period scared me, i was a single mum, a full time student, i couldn’t afford to be off my feet for longer than necessary. I chose recovery over risk because firstly i knew i was getting the best, secondly i knew the complications were few and far between, and focusing on the worst case, is not productive, what will be will be.
I decided it was pointless making any preparations due to the long time wait, only 3 weeks later i got a call to say pre-op in a week, surgery in 3 weeks……
YIKESSS!!! lol, so i was too busy for those 3 weeks to really stress, i had to make all plans, sort out kids, arrange school works for both them and myself, arrange care for them and ensure m house was low maintenance for me..i managed it LOL!! (even handing in an assignment the day before surgery.
