1 week to go!!! Yipee

Only one week to go! My bag is almost packed, shopping is done. Groceries this weekend. Monday is preop then Thursday the Castle.... My nerves are off the charts, but I'm feeling good that it is almost over. I hope it goes fast. The waiting is killing me.

Hey Surgery Sister Befuddled

I'm just to that point now that I want it over, chat is a great place to get support, and I'm still scared out of my mind.... But I try not to think about that..... I will be looking for your post when I get back home. My surgery is at 11:00 Central Time. Good luck sister.... :run3:

Me too!

I'm as as can be that in a week I will be free from all this!

Here's saving a for afterwards!

Mine's at 8am, so perhaps I'll be coming out of it just as you're being put under.

May God bless and keep you safe!

We'll have to compare stories and recovery on the other side!

1 week to go!!! Yipee

oh yeah, it's me again - one less day to go than all you other gals, but I bet I want it more!!!- I am actually praying that surgery doesn't get cancelled (I still have a sinus infection x2 weeks) and just ran to the surgeons', to pick up some sample antibiotics that his PA had on hand - she was wonderful - my allergist refused to give me another antibiotic when I saw him Tues. eve, but he did give me a note to take 2 days off of work b/c of an acute sinusitis, & he said he wouldn't give me steroids- which is what I really need to get the inflamation down- (actually the right decision as it lowers your immune system) , but all he said was call the surgeon and tell him you have been on antibiotics for 5 days...and see if he wants to do the surgery.- so lets all pray together - and drink lots of water...love,luck,&laughter, Lynda

Thanks Surgery Sisters, & Ljb

Thanks to the surgery sisters that responded. It won't be long for us now. We can offically say, we have less than a week! WAAAAA HOOOOO.

Ljb, good luck to you. I hope all goes well and they don't cancel on you. That would have to be the worst.

Take care and good luck.

Hi Sisters!!
I just can't wait either. I had pre-op yesterday & that was the last step before the big day!! The countdown is ticking away now! I will be out this weekend looking for the perfect tummy pillow. The nerves are totally on edge
Yesterday I even shaved my underarms with the cover on the razor & didn't even realize it!
Hope it's a good week for everyone & this time next week we will have our status

Barb - HAHAHAHAHAHA - you're too funny !!!

Lynda, your sinusitis sounds awful. You might be allowed to add harmless home-brew help, but ask your doctor about all these ingredients in view of timelines (some are blood thinners) ...

I add 1/8 tsp. cayenne to a can of vegetable beef soup. If that's okay with him, ask also about a pinch of garlic (1/16 tsp). If he lets you do these, it will clear up your sinuses and help your body fight (really doesn't taste too bad, either). Also, I know he won't object to lots of vitamin C, but ask how much he thinks is good (again, every good thing has its sides, and he has the timeline in mind).
