Date Changed - Moved UP

So, my operation was scheduled originally for 12/6 but on Thanksgiving Day my doctor called to tell me that the date had to be changed and 12/1 was available. I must say, up until that point I was ready. Everything I needed for my stay at the castle and at home recovery was gathered into one place. The house was clean, meals were prepared and frozen. I was ready.

Today I had my pre-op meeting with my surgeon - now just need to meet with the hospital staff and have all of the lab work done and begin the bowel prep on Wednesday.

Since the call, however, I haven't slept very well, I am starting to get snippy with the household, I am anxious and exhausted. So I'm holding on for two more days and am just trying to remember to hold my tongue... Sigh =(

Re: Date Changed - Moved UP

The last few days before surgery are the worst! It's stressful, scary, you can't sleep and everything irritates. Deep breaths. Keep busy, go Christmas shopping, anything to keep busy. You may ask your doctor for something to help with anxiety and sleep before surgery. I took Ativan the last two nights before surgery. You will get through this and you will be fine. We'll be waiting for you in the other side.

Ok, deep breaths. Thanks! I was good until everyone came home =) Busy is my plan. Christmas shopping wrapped up today. Fresh groceries purchased. Aside from laundry it all seems to be done - maybe I can squeeze in a long nap somewhere. I do plan on a mani/pedi on Wednesday before taking the dreaded dulcolax.

Re: Date Changed - Moved UP

The days just before surgery can be difficult - this is a very nerve racking experience. Keeping busy is good advice.

You may want to not do a mani/pedi, as they might have to take off the polish before your surgery. I would ask about that first.

Good luck with your surgery. We will be waiting for you on the other side...

Re: Date Changed - Moved UP

Yes we can!! My surgery is also on 12/1 and the last few weeks have been very crazy and stressful for me. I am dealing with a family crisis over the past week so that hasn't help my stress levels at all!! Just trying to take each day one at a time and taking DEEP breaths and trying to get everything in order before the big day!! Good luck to you with your surgery and recovery. See you on the other side!!

CapeMay2 - I pray that your crisis resolves positively and quickly.

Tennessee70 - that's probably the best way to describe it - mini panic attacks. Did I remember everything, Does DH know where all of DS's meds are, etc. I know at some point you just have to let go but that's easier said than done.

Best wishes to you both - 2 more days...
