Re: Starting To Worry About 'Little' Things


First is - my surgery isn't scheduled until 2:30. No breakfast or lunch?!? Really?!? What about my coffee fix? Dumb stuff to worry about, I know.

Also, I feel like there is so much I should get done before and wondering how I'm going to accomplish it all. Silly since it's all stuff I've been procrastinating on anyway. <heavy sigh>

It all works out in the end. How? I don't know, it's a mystery. But it does - at least that's what I keep telling myself.

Re: Starting To Worry About 'Little' Things

Thank you for all of the wonderful responses! It's nice to know that others are feeling the same or did feel the same before their surgeries.

Great ideas about having people bring dishes for Thanksgiving.....and putting stuff on Lay-A-Way for Christmas! Thank you so much

I'm trying to find out as much information as I can about Adeno.....My Dr. only said he 'suspected' it because of the size of my uterus (and I'm thinking because I have endometriosis). I have read some posts on here about Fibroid Tumors and I'm starting to worry about's always something I haven't had periods in a while since my ablation.....but the pain; the full feeling; the braxton hicks feeling pain I can all relate to.

Today my lower back hurts so very bad. I took Naproxen. I'm still bleeding from the LEEP so I'm trying to stay away from Advil and Motrin. Anyone have any other ideas on how to deal with the pain?

Try using a heating pad. I haven't gone a day without mine for the past four months. I feel for you with the LEEP. I had that done too. Hang in there :-)

You guys Rock!

Went out and got me a brand new heating pad...and I must say that I'm in love

Even my dog loves he won't get off my lap when I'm using it!

Thanks again to all the princesses here who are helping me on my journey. You are more appreciated then I can ever tell you.

Re: Starting To Worry About 'Little' Things

My chihuahua loves my heating pad too! I just got a grabber today and I think it will come in handy. Allready have the Velcro abdominal binder, mini pillow pet, fiber gummies, gasx, blanket throw for the hospital, and slip on slippers. I also bought one of those sit up in bed pillows. I'm ready! Now just waiting!!

One more suggestion..I read on here a body pillow was helpful prior to my surgery and it was/is!

CVS drug store Memory Foam $25.00 it!!

Blessings to you :-)
