nesting is making me exhausted

listen, sisters, this is strange I know - but i am no where near menopause, have had no symptoms, and am praying for none as they perform surgery on the 6th of March - I like my house cold - will let company borrow sweatshirts if they can't take the (lack of) heat - but here's my question - I really do keep my house at 64 degrees most of the time, and sleep with one quilt, will this be enough, or are you cold after surgery? I remember reading about warm blankets as comforting in the hospital. at least - here is the question - but you know me - fast typer - and long winded - should I be getting out my electric blanket - i will not be able to reach it myself once I am "punctured" and could be too dazed and confused to tell my sister where to find a) the blanket and b) the controls for it ---and I am only talking about mine - I kept my old one for company...and no one, not even me will have an easy time finding that -

Hi Lynda!

It's anyone's guess as to how your body's thermostat will adjust after surgery - some gals do experience a colder nature at first. It would not be a bad idea to have the heating blanket out just in case -- good thinking! But you might not need it, and you won't know until you are home from surgery.

Hi Lynda

I agree with toonces you never know until you get home after surgery. I was still having all those hot rushes, but some Princesses have cooled off for a while. So yes it would be a good idea to get that blanket out and ready if you need it. I also had night sweats until we got my hrt straightened out. God Bless.

Hi Lynda, you might also want to have a heating pad or hot water bottle handy that you can just drape over your belly. I found in the castle that I was pretty warm overall but some extra heat just in that area helped ease the pain, and they were bringing heated blankets every half hour which was nice. At home I used a heating pad the first couple of days and haven't needed it since.
