Changed my date

As if the upcoming date of having surgery wasn't enough on my mind now they have moved it to Jan. 25. My pre-op date is now on the 10th. I suppose I know what it means to be a lady in waiting. I'm taking in everyones suggestions and still getting comfort in knowing I'm not the only one . I have an ovarian tumor that is 19 centimeters, and causing a bit of discomfort. Aside from deep breathes to breathe normal , sleeping changes, and going to bathroom alot, I'm doing fine.

I know how the waiting can drive you insane. Sorry they changed your date. What happened? All I can say is they just made the HARDEST part longer!!!Waiting IS the hardest part!!! Try to stay busy and focus on other things. I gave my entire house a makeover in 2 weeks b4 my surgery!!DH thought I had lost my mind, but it sure kept my mind off things and my house looked great too!!!!

Hi Kathy,
I know exactly what you mean about the house husband says I'm nesting, except there's no baby due !!!
Apparently my doctor originally wanted the date to be Jan.9th, but the hospital is booked, so we have to wait until the 25th. The worst part is my mom and sister who are convinced this should have been done yesterday. I feel like I 'm the one consoling them, but don't get me wrong , they are very supportive !!!

What a bummer, Lori!

I know how frustrating the waiting game is. So sorry they have prolonged yours.

Just wanted to send s your way. If I can be of any help now that I'm "on the other side" don't hesitate to ask.

Hope your surgery and recovery go smoothly.

Let us know how are you doing.

I know how you feel - it is so frustrating to have your surgery delayed! I'm sorry that you have to wait longer. And to find out so close to when you thought it was going to happen. That is SO frustrating.

I was supposed to have my surgery on 12/22 and got postponed two days before because of some problems found in some pre-op tests. These have been cleared up through additional testing, so I'm now back in the waiting game as well. My doc couldn't get the hospital, assistant surgeon, and her schedule coordinated until the end of February! Oh, well, that which doesn't kill me makes me stronger, right?

Wow, you have me beat! I thought 4 children (5 if you include my husband) was tough, but seven!!! Wow, my hat's off to you. You must be super organized at your house. I'm doin some major stressing, but not about my TAH on 1/23, but about what will happen at my house when I'm down for a while. I'm trying to get food in the freezer, etc, house cleaned (it'll be dirty again next week), and all those million other little things floating around in my brain done before the big day. Take care of yourself!

i am organized,but i have to be or things would fall apart in a bad way!! of my triplets has autism,and the other 2 are extreamly special needs as well due to being born at 29 weeks,so everything has to be the same,or they fall apart...i also know,that my house will fall apart while im down,and hope to god i can resist the temptation to get up and "take care of everything" husband is a gift from god,and i ahve no doubts about the level of care and support i will recieve,but,i have obessive comulsive disorder,and i freak out horribly bad if there is any mess in my house at all.....maybe i should go back on my meds before i go
