Any April 9 Surgeries?

Hi to the new sisters having surgery on April 9th. Hope all is proceeding as expected. I'm sure everyone is starting the count down, I know I am. I have one more pint of blood to donate for my surgery, then all I need is pre-op. It seems like we have been waiting forever. I am going on a girls trip to Idaho next week and when I return it will be less than 2 weeks for surgery. My liver MRI came back--my cyst is benign- Boy, was I relieved. Well take care to all of you and I'll be talking to you soon.

Any April 9 Surgeries?

Pink Monkey- Moody AFB as a whole is good, Valdosta is a great little-big town. The locals are very friendly and there is a great amusement park right here in town. Not a huge Six Flags or anything, but a very nice park. I've never been to Cannon myself, but I know lots of others that have been and seems anything would be an improvement.

As for my surgery, I got a call yesterday from the doctor's office. My referral downtime was not specific to a hysterectomy (how did I know that was the proceedure the doctor would recommend?), TriCare won't even look at it. So now I have to go back to my Primary Care Manager and get a new referral and then get back to him. This will take weeks and by the time I get it my husband will be deployed and I will have to wait until early winter to have my surgery. So, unfortunately, I am not an April 9 surgery anymore!

Now I am having heart problems, I have to have a TEE to see if I have a Hole in my heart, Yeah! So my date, once again depends on other issues, keep your fingers crossed Sisters!

I'm sorry you are both going through such grief. It takes so much time to make sure all is set up and then to have something fall through. I guess you just have to have faith that it is all happening for a reason.... and it is all a part of a master plan. Tonight my sister in law gave birth.... it was strange sitting next to her thinking here your body works just fine and your using your god given organs and I'm weeks away from having it all taken out. I can only think right now there is a bigger picture and I can't see it now. I have my beautiful kids and I need to plan for a better future for ME! I hope you both can find your way through this mess.

2 weeks away

well ladies its only two weeks away... i dont knowq about you all but my head is swimming with things to do. I'm busy today making sure every one is paid (for the plastic surgery part) and co pays. Scheduling last minute things like hair and a massage. Last week my plastic surgeon said he did not feel comfortable doing my breasts during the hyster and tummy tuck, he said its too much surgery and he thinks i should wait to see what my lower half looks like before deciding what to do with my breasts. So I guess I should just be happy for getting the tummy tuck. My husband and I went to Lest Dish and made 24 meals and brought them home to freeze, so dinners are now taken care of. Now I need to go shopping for hospital goodies.... and prepare my recovery room..What else is everyone else doing to plan and keep busy??? Hope your all well.

2 weeks, I am scared. I really hope I don't have the issues I had with the last surgery. Maybe it was just a fluke, but my heart rate is still very high at 110. Did you know you can have a Heart Ablation? I just found that out also. 2 weeks to get everything ready, where to start? I haven't had any time with ER visits and tests. But I guess they think surgery will be ok for me. So now I have to get everything ready. My pre-op is the 4th, when is everyone elses?

I got cleared for my Surgery! I really didn't think I would. Now I am even more scared, I wonder if I had a reaction to the general or was it all heart related, but if they say I am good for surgery I am good right? Boy do I have a ton of pre- op questions for my doc April 4th!

Hello sisters, I just got back from a trip to Idaho with my girlfriends. Lots of shopping and talking--great stress breaker before surgery. I see you all have been very busy while I was gone. I donated my final pint of blood last week before my trip and have a final consultation with my doctor tomorrow, blood work, ekg, etc...then next week I have a preop at the hospital. It all seems to be coming quicker than I can prepare for. When I originally got the surgery date it seemed so far away. I'm making list of all the things I need to do before the 9th. So back to work I go for the final few days--take care to you all!!!
