Home from Pre-Op - it's getting close!

44 hours to go. I will be so relieved when I wake up from surgery and know that the worst is over.

I was in and out of pre-op in about 45 minutes. The surgical consultant taked to me for a little while and they took some blood and that was it. My surgery is at 9:50; they want me there by 8:30. Surgery will take about 2 hours, then they'll take me to recovery for a bit and then off to my room in the post partum ward. I'll be in a room alone or with another surgical patient - not a new mom. I'll have a morphine pump for pain. The next day I'll get to shower. If all goes as planned I'll go home on Monday. Oh yeah and they'll be giving me a swelly belly belt to wear.

Everyone I've talked to who has gone through this or who knows someone who has gone through this has said "you're going to feel SO much better when it's all over". I can't wait.

Hi,

I'm happy to hear that your pre op went well and was easy for you. The swelly belly belt does sound good.

I'll be keeping you in my thoughts and prayers that all will go well for you during surgery.

Remember to be a good princess and allow youself time to heal properly.

AthenaClam,
Good luck to you tomorrow. I will be praying for you.
My surgery is next Friday. I was checking out pre-op questions because I want to know what to expect when I go Mon. morn.
My Dr wants me to take 4 Dulcolax the day before. I tell you that doesn't sound fun. The Dr wants to know where all my organs are. He doesn't want to be surprised. I would appreciate any info on pre-op testing. I'm sure it will be a piece of cake compared to my TAH on Fri. My name is Laura, too.

Godspeed,
Laura

Laura,

I don't know if it's differenct at other castles, but for my pre-op the main goal seemed to be drawing some blood from me and giving me the details about the operation. If you have specific questions about the surgery I would make a list and bring it with you - I wish now that I'd done that. They didn't really do any testing - not even a pregnency test! Good luck with everything on Friday.
