Surgery on April 23

I worked my last day today. I had my pre op visit with my doctor on Monday. She didn't mention to me about having to do anything in particular other than nothing to eat after 10 pm the night before because my surgery is @ 7. She mentioned not to eat anything real heavy (ie., steak and potatoes) because that food would just sit in your colon.

Today when I got home, there was a message from a nurse in surgery who has been trying to reach me (first time I have gotten this message). It was almost 6 when I got home, but I called and left her a message to call me back. I don't know if I will hear from her before Monday, so I can't imagine what this would be about. I would hope that if there was something specific I needed to do before the surgery, that my doctor would have told me on Monday when I saw her. I already know I have to be at the hospital to check in at 5:00. Other than that, no idea.

I'm not nervous like I thought I would be. Of course, that could ALL change before or ON Monday.

Hopefully it was just to verify your appointment...
Good luck...

Not sure what that would be about. Anything major I would think that they would have gone over with you.

I remember I got a call a few days before that changed my surgery time from 7 AM to 11 AM because there was a conflict with an x-ray machine. Two patients, one x-ray machine. So, they moved me back. The nurse was very apologetic, and I told her it was fine - it is not her fault.

Take care, sweetie. Good luck with your surgery. We will be waiting for you on the other side.
