Three days til surgery

So I am having my surgery on the 15th and I have mixed feelings about it! I am ready because I am ready to be out of pain....but at the same time I am kinda scared. I have had a lap done before to remove Endometriosis so I kinda know the drill but I am still nervous! I am on the Lupron shot...I had my last shot about a month ago and lately I cannot sleep at all! I dont know if this is just a side effect of the shot or my nerves or both! Last night I finally went to bed at midnight and I woke up at 4:15 am and couldnt fall back asleep. UGH.

I feel like I am nesting because I have made two new shelves for my pantry (I love getting in the garage picking up a saw, a hammer, and nails; getting a nice piece of wood and making something.), I have went out and got new furniture(which is getting delivered today YAAAA), cleaned the carpets, re arranged my living room...including took our huge flat screen off the wall mount and put it on a stand, with my DHs help, and fixing the holes (by putting pictures up. What! I cant take the anchors out just in case I decide to put it back up lol!), AND got some painting done around the house!! Oh and I decided to do most of this the day AFTER I got a mani pedi...but the polish and my nails still look fantastic!

I guess I just feel the need to post here and have a little rant. Has anyone else been running around like a mad women before their surgery?! Or am I the only one?!

Re: Three days til surgery

Your not the only one, I'm going in the day after you and I'm feeling NUTS! Between cleaning, running around like crazy trying to get everything done & lack of sleep; I'm ready for this to be over. The last few days I've been up at 4am and this morning I woke up at 1. I stayed in bed, but couldn't sleep. Not that I really wanted to, really weird dreams that keep waking me up.

And to top it off Aunt Flo came for a visit this morning.

Re: Three days til surgery

Hi there! My surgery is this week as well, Wednesday, so I can relate to how you're feeling!! Today is the day I am going to crank up the tunes and clean the house from floor to ceiling. Yesterday the nerves really started to hit -- I've been sleeping well up until then, but not last night! (Part of that was because I was waiting for a phone call before I fell asleep, but that left me with lots of time to think which was NOT a good idea!) I slept fitfully last night and my jaw hurts from grinding my teeth and clenching my jaw. I bit my nails off last night, which I haven't done in YEARS. This anticipation is stressful and I can't wait for it to be over!!!!

Re: Three days til surgery

Hey ladies just want y'all to know I had my surgery Friday and I was the same way before. Cleaned had a few break downs etc. The waiting was the hardest part for me. The surgery was 3 hours long went in that morning at 5 was doing good so was home by 2:30 that sane day. The pain was not to bad with the pain meds I started to only take them at night yesterday so fri and sat I took them. Some people say the gasx doesn't help because it's in the cavity itself not in your organs but it helped me all the medicince makes me sick and it helped with that I took milk of magnesia and it works without cramping my stomach up. I drove my son to school today and I felt pretty good the antibiotics make me feel nauseous but all in all it has been pretty easy just remember to take things slow and really drink lots of water.

Re: Three days til surgery

Jen, I'm glad you are doing well.

I don't have my surgery until the 20th, but I've already started making lists of things that need done, rearranging my cupboards, planning meals for after my surgery. Heck, I even put out some Halloween decorations inside my house. Early, I know, but it kinda got me out of the blues from being so nervous about my surgery.

Re: Three days til surgery

My surgery is on Wed and yep, I'm nesting too. It's almost like having a baby. I very nervous that I won't get the yard mowed and somehow think it will never get mowed again. CRAZY!

I guess actually, we are all acting completely sane! I have a song I'm going to try to post but now sure it will work...good luck ladies. May we all have great outcomes and speedy recoveries!

Re: Three days til surgery

Hi mgcam -- I love your vote of confidence because I definitely do NOT feel "completely sane" right now!! I gave up on getting the lawn mowed . . . it's gonna have to wait until spring, now! But the house is going to sparkle if I have to stay up for the next 48 hours and finish it!

Oh . . . perhaps I should put the 5-Hour-Energy and diet Mt. Dew away now!
