Jan 11th as well!

Hi all,
I'm a January 11th girl too. I'm English and am having the op done in England but at the moment am sending this from our house in Spain, so tomorrow we start to drive back to UK and should be there probably Saturday/Sunday in time to get my bedroom prettied up for visitors, and......... what a good idea - a pedicure. I guess that nail polish is not allowed in surgery so nice nails are a must! By this time next week it will all be over. EEeeeeeekkkk! I'm not nervous at the momnent, too much to organise with driving home, but I should think that by Monday I will be v.v. edgy. I've never had an operation before. My neighbour, who had a hysterectomy some years ago, was telling me today that afterwards you get very bad gas, and that in the day room after her op all the Hysterectomy ladies used to cry with laughter because of the various noises they couldn't help but make. She said that normally you'd be really embarrassed but in hospital everyone is the same and they all made a huge joke of it. Deep joy! Best wishes all the Jan 11th girls. Let us all know how you get on in a week or two.

I am scheduled for 2/6, I am terrified, I've never had abdominal surgery before. I am also high risk with diabetes and sleep apnea and pre-menopausal. My belly is very big and i worry about the incision, I hear it hurts like hell and I will be in pain for many weeks. What concerns me most is whether or not I will be able to go on vacation to California on 3/14, 5 weeks post op.

Hello, all. I can't decide if I'm really scared or relieved it will be so soon. I have pre-op today at 1:30 CST and will report back later this evening. Specially for you, Jan? All I know is that if I can get rid if this flaming ball of pain in my belly, I will be a happy camper! I did not sleep at all last night (just over a pre-op???) I am lucky because I found out my sister from Houston is coming to stay a week with me beginning the day after my release date. Barring no post-op infections, of course. I think I have my head around this, but am praying like crazy their is no ovarian cancer, as that is a possibility. Hang in there you guys....I'm taking all the bubble baths I can right now, and that does relax me.
