pre op appt

I received the pre op appt phone call yesterday. It is dec 23 and my surgery isnt till dec 27..they are doing blood work and questions. They are going to give my my hospital band then and i have to wear it till my surgery 4 days later...(if thats the worst of it im doing ok).

I am totally full of anxiety since my phone call now....this IS REAL...this is really going to happen, did I make the right decision? is it to late to cancel? ugh....these are just a few questions running thru my head now....2.5 weeks then this will all be over with.....

Re: pre op appt

My preop they asked a million questions. Did the financial stuff. Answered any of my questions. Sucked blood and did an EKG (which is painless).

I felt that way too. No it's not too late to cancel but do you really want to? I assume you have thought this through and now it's just nerves getting you. I'm scared of surgery but can't face life like it has been. I honestly think if I don't get the hyst hubby will divorce me because I seem to do nothing but whine about feeling horrible or I'm crabby. He's also rather creeped out by there being growths in there and it makes him less than amorous, coupled with the fact I often hurt after sex our once fabulous sex life has been going down hill all year.

Re: pre op appt

I can relate mine is also Dec 27th had my preop with primary on 12/2 and with the Gyn surgeon on the 5th I have to go to a hospital run lab on the 23rd and give them my blood offering, so close and yet so far. I am full of anxiety. The pep is going to be a pain, since I cannot have any real food the day before only clear liquids and broth and soup without noodles or cream, jello, and nothing with red, like cranberry, cherry, rasberry ect juice or red gatoraide, I can have tea but they didn't say no honey. I must start prep in morning. According to Dr the better the prep the less gas afterwards.
