Re: what can I do to prepare for surgery

I am 8 days post op from LAVH and extensive repairs. Put the word out for friends/family to prepare meals for you. Get your bills, housework etc in order. Make sure all your Christmas stuff is done. You will NOT feel like doing anything and I was extremely foggy the first 3 days post op.

Don't take much to the hospital. All I did was sleep, could not hold food down (ick) and waited for the opportunity to get the catheter out so I could pee and go home! I waited two days post op to shower just to be safe.

You will be fine but follow all the pre op instructions to the T and be prepared to be kind to yourself post op.
