March 1 Date Got Cancelled :(

Hi all,

A little update on my March 1st surgery:

I've always prided myself on being pretty tough about pain and surgery, and always calm in an emergency situation. I've had many surgeries and always was as cool as a cucumber, never complained, etc.

For some reason, this time that went completely out the door! By 10 pm the night before my surgery I was FREAKING OUT!!!! I ended up staying awake all night, working myself up into such a panic that I nearly hyperventilated. I have no idea why I decided to completely flip out this time, but it was a real struggle!

To complicate matters, I had done my Fleet prep 2 hours before bed as instructed, but I kept having to run to the bathroom every 15 minutes all night long! I suspect it was more nerves and less Fleet by midnight.

By the morning of March 1st, I was a basket case, exhausted, and I threw up once for good measure. I also was suffering from some nasty allergies with drainage and a scratchy throat. Great. My surgery was scheduled for 1:30 pm, which was awful because I had all morning to continue to worry, be thirsty, and I was starving!

I finally managed to calm myself down and headed over to the hospital at lunchtime. They got my all prepped, assured me that the LAH was easy and I'd have minimal pain. I was all gowned up, ready to go, and then they took my blood pressure and temperature.

Temp was 101.

HUH?!?!

They took it a few more times, and it stayed at 101. Apparently those allergies was really the beginnings of a cold/flu situation, so they postponed the surgery. After all that worry!! ARGL!

It was a good idea though. Not only have I come down with I'm suspecting is bronchitis, but I live very close to Henryville, IN and I spent most of yesterday crouched in a basement avoiding tornadoes. That wouldn't have been fun just post surgery.

I'm rescheduled for April 2nd, this time at 7:30 am, and hopefully I won't spaz out as badly as I did this last time! Shew!

Apparently a big chicken,
Sheri

Re: March 1 Date Got Cancelled :(

I'm sorry that you had such a tough night. However, it sounds like have the surgery postponed was a blessing in disguise. The last thing you want to be doing after abdominal surgery is coughing. Best to have that out of the way before you tackle the recovery from surgery.

I sure hope you and those whom you love are all safe in the midst the real storms, as well as the emotional one you just weathered.

Re: March 1 Date Got Cancelled :(

I am sorry your date got cancelled! But, you don't want surgery if you have a fever of 101.

You should change your hysterectomy date on your profile to reflect this. The site generates useful tips in emails based on that date. So, it is best to keep that accurate.

Good luck.

(((Hugs)))
