Re: Nervous wreck!

The only needle you should have is when they start the IV. You should try to drink all the clear liquids you can up until your cut off point, it will keep you hydrated which makes it easier for them to find your veins.

(If you are having daVinci - you will need an IV in each hand. Not trying to scare you, just wish I had known ahead of time so I knew what was coming).

You will do great!!

Re: Nervous wreck!

Hi I am 4 months post op, and doing great. I hate needles to. I had the IV needle which only stayed in until the next day. I was getting morhine shots in the leg after that, for only one day. I then asked for the pain killer suppository.Sory can't remember the name. But it worked. I had a a TAH. Total Abdominal Hysterectomy. Not overly pleasant to have but bareable.

Best of luck. Keep hydrated, try and drink lots of water,it will as one of the sister's said keep your veins visable

Re: Nervous wreck!

I had to have 2 IV's and they started the 2nd after i was under per my MD's request. The first IV the nurse did infiltrated my vein because I was dehydrated so yes drink up. You actually wont remember a thing lol! If Versed isnt part of the plan, ask for it! They will give it to you after you see anesthestia, your doc and answer your questions for the nurses. I was a nervous wreck too and really it wasnt that bad. I took a long 4 hour nap and when i woke up in recovery started asking for my dh immediately so they moved me to my room, my doc had them bring me out of anesthesia slow too, over an hour span, that also helps You'll be fine! Trust me!!

Re: Nervous wreck!

I hope you are starting to be more calm. Don't worry about the IV. Once it is in the hardest part is over! And it should only take a few seconds to get it in. I pray for you to have peace and also for your bf to be more kind and loving.

1 Cor 13:13 And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.
