2 days left to go

I am new to the board and scheduled for a dVH/RALH 11/18. The nerves are getting the best of me at this point. I have to be at work today and tomorrow but I feel like I should just go to sleep so I don't stress about it coming. Any advice would help. i think the waiting is what is killing me.

TRUST ME the waiting is the hardest part. I always focused on the benefits of the surgery and didn't pay attention to the negatives and that really really helped me. In fact, I wasn't even nervous before my surgery..I was looking forward to the surgery and the good it would do. YOU WILL BE FINE!

I am excited about getting it done. I just think the waiting makes doubt creep in. Thanks for the support.

Re: 2 days left to go

Waiting is very hard. Being nervous is normal for surgery, and especially THIS surgery. The doctors and nurses will take good care of you. They know you are nervous and will help you relax.

For the days before my surgery, I tried to focus on getting the house in order for my down time - meals in the freezer, house cleaned, yard work taken care of, etc. I also got my swelly belly clothes in order, and prepared items for my resting area - books, dvds, magaziines, pillows.

We are here for you. We will be waiting for you on the other side.
