First, . This site is great for focusing you on what you need now. Packing and prepping lists for starters.

Second, do what you can, and let go of the rest. Depending on your situation, you can only do what you can (for instance, my family got sick the weekend/week before my surgery, that changed my plans to say get my nails done and have my dh at the hospital with me).

Third, you will have a pre op appointment with your doctor. He may send you to the hospital after that for blood work and testing. Then you just prep how you need for the surgery (bowel prep if ordered, etc). The day of can be nerve wracking, but if it's bad they can give you something to help you relax. It's no big deal if you're bleeding, many of us are/were.

Hope your surgery goes well!!

to HysterSisters.

It is okay to be scared and anxious - that is normal. Know that there are many women on this site who were where you are now. Get on the site and blog your feelings and emotions, your questions, and whatever else you want. We are here to support you.

For things to do: You can start preparing the house hold for your downtime. You can probably expect to be recovering for about 3 weeks or more. You might want to get some dinners/lunches in the freezer, get the house cleaned and in order, etc. You will need help with household tasks and shopping.

Good luck to you.

(((Hugs)))
