Well, it is 1:15 Thursday morning and I just can't sleep. It is peaceful sitting here looking out on my back deck. It has started to snow. We are expecting up to four inches by tomorrow afternoon. I am glad I don't have to drive in it. That is one good thing about being off.
I am a little discouraged tonight. I thought I would be returning to work in a month, then starting classes. I don't think so now.
I went to my urologist appt. this afternoon. They filled my bladder with water and had me cough. I leaked, just like before. I am now waiting for a outpatient surgery date to have a TVT put in. Why did I not wait for my posterior surgery until this urologist was avaliable? I am just too stubborn sometimes. I guess my surgery will be in 2-3 weeks. Then from what I've read no heavy lifting, pulling, etc for 4-6 weeks. I don't think I'll be returning to work by March 23rd. I do some pretty physical work.Now I have to figure out what I do about disability. I am off through March 23 with this surgery with my GYN. But I will need to be off longer probably with the urologist. I am not sure what I am supposed to do. I will just have to wait until I know my surgery date, then call personel.
I need to get another physical, because I will be under anesthesia. I just had one by my GYN Jan. 19. I wonder if he would be allowed to fill the paper out for me? My health insurance has got to be sick of me!!!
They took a urine sample to be tested. I hope it is ok. The urologist also said he will call my gyn and let him know what he will be doing. Just when I thought this chapter of my life was coming to a end.Surgery #4 in 10 months and some days! What a nightmare it has been.
Off to bed now. Maybe tomorrow will be a better day!
