had part of Pre-op today

Well, had my Pre-Op appointment this afternoon - at least part of it. I guess military hospitals do it a little differently. Went to the GYN today and she had me sign all the paper work, took a family medical history, go over again exactly what is going to be done and the possibilities of the what-ifs, did a physical and another internal exam. Then I had to make another appointment with the Surgical Pre-op office. I go in again on Friday for the blood work, etc. and to talk with the aneths. people. I just hope they will let me take my daily meds the morning of surgery. I'm afraid I won't remember after surgery and I really can't skip a day (antidepressants). Now I guess it's really hit me, I can feel the anxiety step up a notch. One week from tomorrow - just want it over with. Hey, did anyone out there get handed an Advanced Directive (Living Will) at their Pre-Op appt? I think that's what has gotten to me. I really don't want to think about that stuff. Anyway, thanks for letting me vent, my DH just jokes about it but I don't find it funny. I guess that's just his way of dealing with it - he's always been that way - but it doesn't help me any.

Yes I think it's standard procedure. S Try not to worry, ok?

Hi Sue,

I had my TVH in a military hospital, too. I had to go back, after my pre-op, a couple of days before the surgery to do bloodwork. I also take anit-depressants and I was able to continue taking them without missing a day. Just be sure to talk to the anesthesiologist...they will give you guidance on it.

I wish you the very best for a successful surgery and an uneventful recovery!
