Re: Crying

My Op is in April and this morning I burst into tears just sitting on the bed really didn't know what had hit me, I have been going through a mixture of emotions since I found out my date feels like a rollercoaster that I would happily get off.
One second I cant wait to have it next im terrified also not sleeping very well.
So I guess peeking around this site its quite normal although I feel far from that right now

Chin Up ....

Re: Crying

It is the waiting that kills you, can't sleep, focus, concentrate. Try and schedule earliest morning appt. I had to push myself to get organized as to what was ahead. Get your groceries, house cleaned, I made and froze extra meals, buy elastic pants, Miralax and Dulculax I broke down in tears prior from worry. Now, almost 5 weeks post op still have period when I am overwhelmed. All of the things you are feeling are NORMAL. All the best to you.

Re: Crying

It is absolutely normal to have bouts of crying in the lead up to surgery. I got my date 6 weeks prior to surgery and I was extremely upset at times. I also cried all my way to theatre on the morning of the op. It is a very scary and emotional time in the lead up to surgery as we are almost living through it in our heads each day, generally imagining the worst.

Wait till you open your eyes after surgery and hear those magic words "it is all over" think of the relief you will feel

Best wishes to all who are waiting for surgery. Planning the practical things and organising stuff in advance to make life easier after surgery will keep you occupied. Try not to spend too much time alone at this stage, spend time with friends and family who will support you and who you can have a laugh with.

Re: Crying

I agree. Focus on stuff you need AFTER the surgery to get your mind off surgery. Stock up on books if you like to read. I watched comedies to make me laugh in my alone time. I have "won" so much money laying on the sofa watching Who Wants to Be A Millionaire, I could travel around the world!!!!!!!!!!

Re: Crying

This is my 4th surgery in the past I am numb to it. If someone promises me that at least part of the nightmare will be over then I am in 100%. I have been back and forth with this nonsense for a solid year. My date was moved 5 times since January. I was actually in the hospital and they postponed me...wanted me to leave on a Monday night and come back on Thursday. I ran!! I was all set physically and mentally, got the house cleaned all five kids organized...every duck in a very neat row and on MY BIRTHDAY...I got bumped! I am starting to think that I don't actually believe it's going to that's why I am so nonchalant about it. I am full of good advice for everyone else though.. It is too soon to clean again...not preparing meals cuz my DH is a great cook and since I have been more out than in, he already does 50% of the cooking. I have already cried enough and am sure to do a whole lot of it once I am on the "ugly pills"...what I affectionately refer to pain meds as. At least it's better than PMS!! Keep trying to look at that glass half-full...and looking forward to filling it with champagne as I burn the last of my maxi-pad supply!! Up in flames...a bonfire...can't wait!

Re: Crying

I am from New Jersey, but live in FL. Love Boston and the Red Sox. Currently have Red Sox sweatshirt hanging on a chair. Wear it in the stores down here. Husband does audits in Boston, and I go with him. A flash mob. That would be awesome. Gather other hystersisters, sport the swelly belly, and have at it!
