Surgery Tomorrow

I am going into surgery tomorrow 8-3. I am a little scared and nervous. But I cant wait for the mass to be out. I am really creeped out about the biopsy, but I will know the results probably by the time I leave the hospital on friday. Hopefully everything looks all right and they dont remove my uterus or remaining ovary. I have my bag packed, and I am concerned about being at the hospital by myself. My family is going to be there and stop in afterwards but at times I will have to be by myself. I hope I have my own room I dont like the thought of someone I dont know sleeping by me. I sound like a baby but I just am a little concerned. I am working today, but I have to leave early so I can take the medicine that clears your bowels. That will be fun its lemon flavore, yuk. Oh well, I have had issues this weekend that are really embarassing. I am bleeding from my rectum. It is a light red color but it is kind of a lot. I will diffently tell the doctor. I dont feel worse than what I am so I dont think its a big deal it isnt painful. But then again after my lemon drink it might hurt. But I will update all when I get home from the hospital.

Thanks everyone,
Solstice

I would suggest that you contact your doctor before doing the bowel cleanser. Just to be sure it's OK for you to do it. I don't know what the contraindications are, but you wouldn't want to take it if there were any potential problems. It could be something as simple as a hemorrhoid, but you really should discuss it with your physician ahead of time.

I wish you a successful surgery. I hope they find nothing out of the ordinary! Let us know how things go!

I too told my doctor that I did not want to be in a room with another person. He was able to request that I be on a surgical ward (instead of the usual gyn floor). He said it was a little more of a walk for him, but that he didn't mind. Tell your doctor the morning of surgery. It can't hurt to try. It worked for me! I was very greatfull not to have to deal with a roomate and their visitors. Good luck with your surgery tomorrow.
