Preop appt. went well

Thanks to all who have posted with helpful info about issues to discuss with your doc preop. I had my appointment on Tues. afternoon and came away feeling like my concerns had all been addressed.

She is going to spare my tubes and ovaries unless there is some dreadful problem, so I will be able to forego "instant menopause." I haven't tolerated any type of hormone therapy up to now, and was concerned about this.

I have problems with a lot of medication and she was very open to my suggestion for postop pain medication. The one I recommended for me had worked well with a previous surgery and I knew that she one she preferred made me throw up!!!
So, I was glad to have her notate my preference on the chart.

It was a very productive time and I feel good about my approaching surgery (March 12). I had an appt. following the gyn appt. at the hospital for preop check-in. They did labwork (more blood that I can't really spare, I am super anemic), and an EKG. The anesthesiology nurse was very informative and helpful.

I'm feeling ready for this. My husband is going to transform our downstairs family room into my "recoup" room this weekend. We live in a tri-level home and this is the one place I can avoid stairs yet still have access to a bathroom. It should work out well for us. I'll have a TV and the computer down here, and he'll set me up with a cooler for drinks and snacks, and a table for magazines, medications, etc.

Let the countdown begin!!!

Hi Barb,

It sounds like you are going to have a great recovery! I too have stairs, tons, and hubby put everything I needed in the living room. Of course when the downstairs potty stopped working, due to tree roots squeezing the pipes, I learned to climb the stairs slowly but with meaning!

It has been fixed.

But, when I talked to my doctor about that, he said climbing stairs, driving, etc. *everything but sex* was fine!
