Surgery sched March 15

Well My surgery is scheduled and I just got off the phone with the hospital. They set up a meeting with the anes for pre surg talk and sign paperwork on the 11th. The 11th is also my pre surg consult with my Dr so that will be a busy day. Then I have the night before preperations bowel prep, not eating, and douche. I'm nervous about the douching as I have never done this before. Anyone have any words of wisdom or is that TMI. This is all so overwhelming to me and all these various scenes keep playing in my head. Its amazing to me how most people seem to have a no big deal attitude. They are concerned wish me well and all that, but for the surgery itself people seem to think its routine with no cause for concerns. Sorry so long but this surgery can drastically change your way of life for the better or worse if there is a complication. I'm going to stop working myself up. Thank you all for being here.

Hi, my surgery is also March 15. Pre-op on the 8th. there is always cause for concern when you are having a live changing operation, but a pos. out look might be the best way thu this. If you like we can go thu this together.

Re: Surgery sched March 15

It is a major surgery, however, the percentage of complications is not very high. This surgery is the most surgeries that are performed in a year in the U.S. considering that's where you are. Over 600,000. I'm not making light of it at all but it is to most dr's the least worried surgery that they perform. However, for the woman that is having this procedure done it can affect you emotionally. My words of wisdom to you is to remember that you are doing this to improve your life quality. Worrying or being anxious before surgery is normal. There are always the what if's. What I did was put my trust in God and left it there. God has given men and women wisdom and knowledge to be able to perform these procedures. You are going to be just fine. I too had to have do the bowel prep it wasn't as bad as I thought. Didn't have to douche though.

Thank you kishey for your words it does help to know that they do this alot and I know its the unknown of it all and fear of surgery making me nervous. I just have to keep saying all that.
Donna, its nice to know of someone else having surgery the same day and that we are going through this on the same timeline. Its like having a surgery buddy. Just sharing here and looking up information helps me to feel empowered and stronger. Thank you everyone.

You are so welcome. I am not on here all the time but I do come back from time to time. When I do I spend a couple of weeks at a time. I will get it. I'm here to help those that are having this surgery after me as there was some before me that helped me.

Take care and be encouraged.

Hi Donna, Iam also having surgery on the 15th. Maybe afterward we can compare notes. I am having a total abdominal one so I will have plenty of spare time afterward.
