Re: One week to go, and I'm in a good place...

That kind of stuff ticks me off too. I'm sorry you're having to deal with that kind of stress on top of everything else.

First off, if you have to do a bowel prep, there's almost no way you can work the day before, or so I'm told.

Second, if you are eligible for FMLA, make sure your doctor's orders indicate you need off the day before. If you're not eligible for FMLA, get a doctor's note indicating you have to be off for X amount of time, including the day before. I'm not an attourney, but I work in government and from everything I've read, the employer has to respect your medical orders - best to check with your local labor department as the laws vary from state to state. You can probably get more info at (I'll get off my soap box now).
I certainly wish you the best of luck and hope everything works out for you.

Re: One week to go, and I'm in a good place...

Still have to go in to work . I got news from my dr. office that I am scheduled for a d and c. I asked about the hysterectomy from my paperwork and she said it was read wrong.He ordered a d and c with ablation . The ablation was denied and he wrote discussed future hysterectomy . I can deal with that . lol. I am not saying a word to anyone at work . I am going to go about my work schedule and when all is said and done I will return . I am not upset at the dr office for this . I am thinking they were covering me in case I had to have one . I gave him permission to do what ever he felt I needed to have . I am waiting to go on the 1 for my preop .I am debating to mention all the issues I had given to me over this . But , I will most likely be quiet. I have 4 weeks off and if I have to go back sooner ok . Now today the coworkers were looking at my schedule and making remarks saying I could come back in a week or 3 days . I said maybe I wont come back at all . My husband is not happy over paperwork mess up . But , I feel like I am covered if I need it . No harm done . If I get a TVH it will be ok . If not . I am ok with it . Thank you for the info . I am a very quiet person . I dont deal well with confrontation . I feel like the whole thing is a mess. Including my sanity .

Re: One week to go, and I'm in a good place...

Thank you . I hear most who have the d and c are usually in for hysterectomy. I dont care . I am prepared for either one . I have accepted the fact my female parts are wore out . I am going ot focus on what will make me better. Its out of my hands. Thanks to all my new sisters. Good luck and prayers to you all.

Re: One week to go, and I'm in a good place...

I may as well put it out of my worries. That never changes things and only makes you weak . As I was told . So, if the good man above wants me to go through a hysterectomy or D and C to make my life better, more power to that . Hope everyone had a great holiday . I spent mine at work then came home to a grumpy hubby who went to bed . So, I spent the rest of my evening with A Lady Gaga Thanksgiving . A bit of change for a changing lady as I .

Re: One week to go, and I'm in a good place...

Good luck to you . I know that the clear liq. diet isnt fun . I work in a hosp. in food service and whenever we take trays to people we always hear about how hungry it makes them . I could go on a clear for a week or so to lose a few pounds or more. I hear from my obgyn how its harder for overweight women to get a good screening for cancer cells because of fat cells . I never heard of it but I guess it could be . I am going to try to sneak in my shopping on my pay day the 2. My date to go in is the 5 . So if I can get a few nice gifts and my cookie supplies I will be happy . I wonder how it will go with a D and C ? I am concerned over that . Recovery time and all. Prayers.

Re: One week to go, and I'm in a good place...

I just got the call from the surgical nurse, I have to be at the castle at 6 for surgery at 7:30 a.m.
the fat cells, well I have lots of them:{ im hoping all will go well.
believe me a liquid diet will be the least of my worries
when I had my ablation and d and c, had it on a thursday, took the friday off and the weekend and was back to work monday
