4/23 Hurray

Hi 4/23 sisters!

Wow! You have all done so much. I haven't started. I just found out about the cancer on Monday (the 8th), have my pre-op on Monday the 15th, LEEP on Monday 22nd and hyst on the 23rd, 3:00 pm. It's too fast!

You all have so many excellent recommendations of things to do before going in to the castle. I can't possibly do it all. Oh, and I am two months from completing my BS in computer programming! And, I have to be up and ready to walk across the stage on May 5th. I will be there come heck or high water. This is NOT going to be fun trying to get everything done and recover as well. It will be nice to have you all as a support!

Good luck to you all! I know we will all make splendid editions to the Punctured Princess club.

LIW (and not very patient!) Linda

I'm a 4/23 too

I am glad to know there are others going thru this on the same day. I have a friend that is having it done on the 24. We wish we were having it the same day but we have different Drs.My
pre-op is the 19th and I'm starting to have lots of questions. I also have bought the new gown, robe and panties. I'm trying to stock up on the food and make sure the laundry is caught up. I feel vary lucky, I will have lots of help and support when I get home. It will be interesting to see how things get done around here without "Mom" doing it. Now I know why I've taught my 2 teens to cook and do laundry.
I pray that everything goes well for everyone and you have a speedy recovery.

Rug may be pulled out from under me for the 23rd..

since we all have the same date, I was wondering if any of you were told not to take ibuprofen (advil) a certain number of days before your surgery... don't know if you've read my panic post about OTC meds... I took advil on the 13th... surgery is the 23rd... I feel like crying... and I can't even call the surgeon tomorrow cuz in massachusetts is a state holiday... so he is probably not in the office... I am angry cuz my primary did my pre op physical and never said anything about not taking herbs, meds, etc.... and mad at myself for not thinking about it.... I can't take the waiting any longer....
also I had to have a chest xray at the primary's office... if my surgery is put off I don't want to expose my breasts to more radiation...
I am sorry to go on and on.. but I just can't have the rug pulled out from under me now....

Hi...Reema....fellow Ohioan

Where in Ohio are you????

Karah sent you an email about the OTC med....try not to worry I think your doc would have been more persistant about telling you not to take them if he thought it important. Try to relax. I was told Tylenol PM was ok....and have been sticking to tylenol products. I almost took a percocet the other day for back pain and read on a post here that its a no no before surgery. So I didnt....but I wouldnt have worried anyway we still have more than a week before surgery.

God Bless
