I really NEED a hug right now!!

Im not sure if how im feeling is normal or not, but im so moody right now. It started this am when i found out my surgery had been pushed back another week. Im trying to shake this feeling, then i get a phone call from my husband at work to tell me that he has to work the day after the surgery. He forgot that ill be in the hospital overnight! FORGOT???? So now im really heated! I feel like my body is controlling me! I just want this to be over before my family has me commited!! I just want someone to listen to me, and really hear me. Im going through alot right now and honestly dont feel as if I have a friend in this world! Please excuse this pity party im having. Oh by the way, im having TVH on the 19th of Jan. The original date was Jan. 12th.

Re: I really NEED a hug right now!!

It is VERY normal! I found on here that the more time you have to think about the surgery, the worse it is! I had 2 months of knowing! It is stressful and emotional. Do you have other family members that can help you the day after when you go home? I had a friend spend the night with me and help with my young daughter.

Re: I really NEED a hug right now!!

Lots of hugs and best wishes to you.
It will all come right in the end so just hang in there, sweetie.

Try and calm your nerves, practise deep breathing, or focus on positive thoughts about how well you will be afterwards.

Start preparing hubby for how much help you are going to need in the first few weeks, preferably months of recovery.
Aparently there is a MisterHysterSisters site, so show him that as a preparation for what you will be needing from him

Re: I really NEED a hug right now!!

Big squeezy hugs but not the kind that hurt....It's normal to be this worked up. I have my surgery on 1/31 but scheduled it back in November. I hope that you can have someone there the day after...and that the painkillers are good!

Re: I really NEED a hug right now!!

I understand!! This is a major life changing experience. It's ok to be all over the place, you don't have to be in control of yourself all of the time, heck this warrents a lil more neediness. I am 3 weeks post- op and have been emotionally hieghtened the entire time. I had to wait 6 months before getting this surgery. Air HUGS and full understanding!!!

*Lotsa hugs*
I know how you feel; I was stressed out before my surgery - and I only had to wait three weeks.

Take care,

Re: I really NEED a hug right now!!

Wifeoffireman, what you are going through is normal. I just got really busy the week before surgery and got everything done so that when I got home it would be done. It helped with my anxiety. Set up a tray next to your bed and have a cooler there for stuff to drink. You probably won't want to eat much more than soup or applesauce or other light stuff. You just aren't too hungry for some reason. I didn't take meds, so that wasn't why. I just wasn't hungry. I am also the wife of a fireman. It's scarey because they are gone 24 hours at a time. Maybe he can take a day or two of vacation. That's what my dh did. He also has the ability to trade days. Does your dh have that option? It will be alright. The waiting is the worst part. Hang in there!
