September 9th surgeries...raise your hand.

Just realized in another thread that there were a few replies from women that are having their surgery the same day as me. For some reason I find it comforting that there will be other women out there in the world that will be going through it at the same time. I'll be prepping my bowels while eating only see through liquid-ish thingies all day Thursday and then a 12 noon check in on Friday and going under at 1:30. A nice fun sleep over with all the nurses until Sat then home to sleep and catch up on shows from before I had children.

Who's with me.......

I'm the ninth, too. I don't know yet what time the surgery is or when I'll go home, but that's the date. I agree, it's nice to know there are others out there going through it with me. Good luck to us all!

You can find those ladies having surgery on the same day as yourself by using the Calendar link towards the top right of every page. We hope you'll enjoy using Friends Without Faces for fun and social chatter, and we'll look for you in the Pre-Op Support Forum if you've any support needs or questions prior to surgery.

Best wishes!

Re: September 9th surgeries...raise your hand.

I'm the 9th as well! I totally agree, knowing there are others going through this at the exact same time is comforting. I have to be there at 6:30am surgery at 8:30am. I'm having the big abdominal incision so I'll be in the castle 3-5 days.

This last week is going to either go by very fast for us.. or take forever! Or both?!

I want it to be over with, but don't want the day to come either. AHHHH!

Well ladies, we have each other on the ninth. I wish us all an easy surgery and fast recovery.

Re: September 9th surgeries...raise your hand.

The 9th as well. I am glad I found this sight and know I'm not alone. I'm not sure what time I go in my pre op is the 6th but will let y'all know. I would love to keep in touch with y'all throughout the time. I am very nervous. I am having a TLH and so far doc is going to keep my ovaries unless they are better off coming out. He has said I would go home the same day. I am ready to get it over with too but stll scared ****less. Lol. Good luck everyone. It's count down time

I think we got moved to the friends without faces section. I would like to keep up with you all if you want. It would be nice to have a little group of people going though what you're going through at the same time.

I want to absolutely keep in touch. We'll help each other with all the tips and tricks of menopause. Even a place to vent will be nice.

Yes, this thread has been moved. The site guidelines state that threads created for the purpose of finding members who share the same date will be moved to the Friends Without Faces forum, a forum created specifically for ladies to connect and become friends!

Chatter:
You agree you will keep chatter posts within the chatter forum of the message boards. Threads that begin with the purpose of finding members whose surgery is on a certain date or month will be moved to "Friends Without Faces" forum. Discussions on the public boards that begin to reflect personal conversations between a few members will be removed.
This forum is a perfect place to chat and visit about anything and everything except actual pre and post op questions.

Once you have surgery, a Recovery Progress Thread will be created for you in the Post Op forum. There you will be able to share a daily post about how you are doing to so you can all stay connected with each other's recovery progress.

After your initial recovery period, that thread will be moved to the Date Club sub-forum in the HysterSister's Club House where you can continue to reply.

Always remember to post any surgery specific questions in the Pre or Post Op forums, but feel free to chat about general information here!
