Re: Got cancelled 30 minutes before surgery

Bless your heart. I feel so bad for you. I must admit, a last minute cancellation is something I never consisdered. As someone else suggested, I believe everything happens for a reason. Sending good thoughts and a big hug your way. Hope next Friday everything goes as planned.

Re: Got cancelled 30 minutes before surgery

Your recovery may not be as bad as you think (hopefully) My post-op has been good- I was so worried about taking time off to recover that I postponed my surgery from summer to thanksgiving. Looking back- I would have done it then and gotten it over with. My surgery was Laproscopic and I was feeling good enough to go back to light duty at work one week later.

As my surgeon said "we have a bed for you but no one to look after you" I just hope next Friday is a go.... otherwise it's switch doctors or wait till March - I work for agricultural related companies so spring gets tough for me. We waited until this time of year for recovery purposes.......

I hope you are right! The a/p repair is what has me worried though - primarily the posterior which often brings the need for home catheter. Either way I will survive, what choice do I have? Thank you for the kind words...

Well on the good side at least your not in a hospital room waiting a long time for a nurse to give you your pain meds. There is a reason for everything!! It was just meant for you to wait until next week. Have a blast at the party this weekend.
Yes, they say everything happens for a reason and I do have to trust in that. Thank you for your kind words.

Re: Got cancelled 30 minutes before surgery

Hi I got cancelled too. My surgery which was scheduled for Oct 13 2011 and we waited and waited it was past the time of my surgery I had a feeling something was up. My Dr came and told us she had to cancel due to unforeseen emergency. I was so angry and upset but in Canada these things happen more than you know. My Dr rescheduled me for Oct. 21 2011 thank god I didn't get cancelled again... Its now been over 6 weeks and am glad its all over with. hang in there and i will keep my fingers and toes crossed that you get your surgery.

Hugs and prays to you

My surgeon comes in to tell me that not enough people were discharged this morning in addition to two deliveries and an incoming emergency surgery.

They gave me a slot for next Friday reserved for C-sections, potential to get bumped again, apparently.

On an upnote there is a birthday celebration for a friend this weekend that I can re-RSVP.
Here I was complaining because the diabetics "bumped" me from 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM.

Stuff happens. It is good that you are understanding.
I would have been a little upset about it.

Re: Got cancelled 30 minutes before surgery

This is my biggest fear at this time, I am scheduled for next Friday too. I have everything scheduled and arrange with work, kids, my hubby- who works out of town has arranged to be home with me- if it gets cancelled I might end up without any help at home. Good luck to both of us on the 16th!

I did not fear cancellation at all. I never even CONSIDERED that it could even happen. Now - it is at the forefront of my anxiety.... because now I know the potential exists. It seems worse now too considering they have given my surgeon a spot reserved for c-sections. Then again if someone was having a scheduled c-section those dates are booked a few weeks out... I would assume? Only thing I have possibly going for me is a 7:30 am start time might have an advantage over my previous 12:30 pm start time...

Re: Got cancelled 30 minutes before surgery

I was cancelled last year for my BSO surgery. I was hooked up and ready to roll and my doctor came in to see me looking wigged out. She said her father and sister in law were in an auto accident and were downstairs in the emergency room.

Needless to say she did not want to continue with the surgery that day and neither did I! We re-scheduled for two weeks later. I was disappointed because I was mentally ready to go but did not let it upset me too much. Good luck.
