Visits in the hosp?

I am thinking... I am not sure who will want to come to the hosp when i have my surgery... but I think since I have a close family, most will want to come. I am not sure how I will feel about that then. I am tossing saying not to and taking the time to relax and recover and not worry about all that ya know. What do you all think you'll do? I am unsure. Maybe being drugged up I wont care. Maybe I'll regret telling them not to come. Maybe I should tell them to wait and I will let them know how I feel after the surgery?

I dunno, I juts don't know how I will feel emotionally after, ya know.

Visits in the hosp?

Before my surgery I had decided to ask that my family (aside from my husband and daughter) please not visit, and I was very happy that I did that. I really wasn't up to having company and was pleased that I didn't have to act as if I was. The family all got a chance to see me once I got home, and I made sure to tell them that I was so thankful that they abided by my wishes.

just say no

I don't have a lot of family, but I will be asking my mom to NOT come to the castle.

My situation is a bit different. I have a diagnosis of uterine cancer. My mom has been acting like I'm going to die any minute. I've been veerryy upbeat and positive with her... but I don't want to worry about her while I'm recovering. My beloved partner will have enough to do pampering me without dealing with my mom. My sister can keep her informed

Everyone else - I've promised Rob will email them that evening to let them know I'm ok and I've asked for no flowers or visitors until I'm home. I did hint that a big soft teddy bear to hug would be an ok gift.

I think you're right to ask for them to wait if that's what you decide. You're the one who will be healing. You can always change your mind and call the troops in for a visit if you are up for it.

Take Care!! Lyn

I asked that no one come except my husband. You aren't there long and you need recovery time. It's been 5 days now and I've only allowed two people to come for a short time. I'm not ready to socialize yet.

Visits in the hosp?

I don't have a lot of visiting time to worry about. The hours at my local hospital are very restricted - an hour in the afternoon and another in the evening. My DH will only be able to make the evenings - he's not taking any holiday at all while I'm in hospital so as to have time with me when I'm discharged - so I've asked those I think I'll want to see to come in the afternoons, but to wait till they hear from Mike. My family don't live nearby; this is mostly a blessing. They aren't particularly restful company after major surgery and one of my sisters is, shall we say, very self-absorbed. I wouldn't wish her on someone with a bad head-cold, let alone anything remotely serious. I probably sound very unkind and intolerant, but she really is beyond a joke.

I really was not up to visitors for a while. My dh came up regularly. My Mom stopped in a few hours after my surgery. My aunt & uncle came up for about 20min the day after. My best friend came for awhile on day 2. Once I was home, I didn't have anyone visit except my Mom for about 2 weeks. I wanted to be able to rest, eat, etc whenever and not worry about "oh, so-and-so will be by in 1/2hr so I can't rest now" and things like that. People understand and those who don't ... oh well!!!!

I am so positive people will respect my wishes... I just don't know what those wishes are, ya know. I guess I will tell them to wait for a call that will tell them ya or nay... I am sure they will be fine with that.

Visits in the hosp?

The only visitors I really want is my husband and two boys and my mom.

Mom would need a ride out to the hospital so that means my aunt would need to come. I hate to come right out and say anything because I know my family...feelings will be hurt.

I just don't want a lot of conversations going on in my room with relatives while I'm trying to rest. Best thing I can do is fall asleep or pretend to!

Hopefully, everyone will have some busy days ahead and not think about trying to visit.
