vonnie, I will be thinking about you on Monday and praying or a good outcome with your biopsy.

I am glad if I have encouraged anyone. It is one of my hearts desires to be able to do that. I just hate it when I am self absorbed! It is an aweful feeling.

As I have said many times ... mornings are rough but as the day goes on it generally gets better. This morning I was so naucious but I made myself eat a little. It might have been from the meds for the ear and neck pain. Alieve on Saturday and Excedrine Migraine Sunday evening before bed. Yuck.

I can't wait to hear from Vonnie. Everything in me says it is ok and not serious.

Have a bright and loving day Nonna and all the rest of you.

I am off to work.

Love you all.

Vonnie, I pray your biopsy comes back normal. Try to keep your chin up. We are all here for you.NotBrave, you are not at all self-absorbed. When you are going through the things we are going through, its hard to not think about it alot. I personally have had my share of pity- parties. LOL and I do not feel guilty about it. Just know that you have a whole group of new "sisters" who love you lots and are doing life right along with you. You are not alone. Love you dearly, keep pressing on !!!!

Re: I am a mess

Hi Notbrave well all I can say is to be brave. I have had a TAH everything out and I too was petrified my imagination ran wild, scared of all the things you mention. But I couldn't believe it it was nothing like I expected I thought I would be in agony after I was scared to look at my incision I was scared it might open up anything and everything dreadful I thought of. But sweetie it is nothing like that. I am nearly 4 weeks post op and feel good bit of tightness around tummy but not pain. The worst part of all this was the waiting so keep calm it will soon be over and you will be telling the same to others. Big Hugs

Oh klarika I am going to read your post many times! I almost cried reading it. Not a bad cry, a relieved cry! I know I will get petrified again but for now you have given me something to hold onto. Thank you so much and God bless you. I hope and pray for your continued healing and excellent recovery. I do long for the day when I can "be telling the same to others" Thank you!

Re: I am a mess

The waiting was so terrible for me as well! In thought of every possible catastrophic scenario that could occur. It was driving me nuts! Then, I tried to picture the doctor coming out to my family telling them that everything went perfectly and looked great. I ran this through my head while I exercised. It really helped. And you know what, that's exactly what happened with my surgery, thankfully! All that worry for nothing! By the way, if you're able to exercise before surgery, do it! It feels so bad having to lay around now knowing that my muscles are weakening from the inactivity. But this too will pass!
Your relief will be amazing when this is over! Then take care of yourself!

Re: I am a mess

Well I do walk everyday after work and in the mornings on week-ends.

I sure hope it is not as horrid as what my imagination comes up with. It is a constant battle to keep from feeling the terrible debilitaing anxiety. I KNOW it is useless to worry and not good for me physically or emotionally. I do struggle with it greatly though.

I do not know what I would do without the ladies on this site. God bless you all.
