My tah is tomorrow and i'm freaked out

I've done everything all you princesses suggested - cleaned the house from top to bottom (incl. Tub), cooked, got my room all ready for when i come home, packed with my tummy pillow, shaved, mani-pedi'd, and even made little love notes to leave around the house for my husband.

Did i miss anything?

Sounds like you got it covered. Now relax a bit. Things also seem to be managed even if you forgot something.

Good Luck

Im feeling the same I have my pre op this week and Im going in for my op a TAH on January 6th Im dreading it , like you I have done meals in freezer, sorted room out and Im now trying to get the washing/drying and Ironing up to date before I go in...

I hate the waiting around counting down the days I wish I could just have it done get it out the way, Im scared its going to really hurt afterwards because I have Fibromyalgia and other health problems just glad I will be given morphine afterwards ...

Re: My tah is tomorrow and i'm freaked out

The waiting is hard mine is tomorrow also, laundry almost done, house cleaned prepared meals for freezer did that all last month. Hubby downstairs now enjoying a pepperoni pizza, me I had my prep of ducolax and miralax in white grape juice, not the same.
How long after the procedure do you have to wait befor you get some nourishment? I had foot surgery once and I thought I would pass out from lack of food. I sound like a ravenous pig but I am not just used to a little healthy meals throughout day, works well in keeping the weight off.

I thought I would be thinking about the surgery all day worrying, I was wrong I am not, my mind has moved to stupid stuff like what will I eat when I get home, what movie will I watch first, Who can I get to take me to my job on thursday to pick up my check. Also ten thousand other little stupid things that have no bearing on the situation at hand. Perhaps it is the minds way of changing the subject.

So in short don't freak out, don't worry everything has it way of working out, I will be thinking about you and sending you positive vibes. Rememeber you have a big family here and we are in your cornere every step of the way.

Re: My tah is tomorrow and i'm freaked out

Sounds like you're ready. Try to relax. Try to get some sleep. Your medical team will take great care of you. I woke up with minimal pain. Less actually than my period used to cause. Hang in there, you are doing this to get you life back. You will, in time, and after taking fantastic care of yourself post-op, in fact get your life back.

Hi britecolor

You have accomplished much, much more than I did before my surgery three years ago!

It sounds like you've done the things you've needed to do to help get your house ready for tomorrow. You will love coming home to a place that is ready to welcome you.

tomorrow, and we'll be seeing you in the Post-op forum!

You'll do just fine!

I survived mine, and my preparations were all worth it!

Have you cut your toenails?

You won't easily get down there for a while... but when they need cutting next you will be able!

Re: My tah is tomorrow and i'm freaked out

Don't forget to take your chapstick and some anti itching lotion/creme. After you come out of recovery, your lips may be really chapped and the pain medication in my IV made me itchy all over. I may have had an allergic reaction to pain medication. I got to eat solid foods the day after my surgery in the hospital. I had my surgery Dec 16. I'm doing okay giving the circumstance. Taking it easy. Pray and you will be fine. Good Luck. This forum is the best!
