I'll be at the castle in 18 more hours.......sigh !!!!!!

I have lost 10 pounds in the last 2 weeks !!!! I'm wondering if I'll need an enema I have nothing in me to prep...everytime I eat it goes straight through me.... I wanted befroe this to lose some weight but this is ridiculous !!! I have IBS and I guess all the stress has made the IBS worse !
I'd like to have one really good healthy meal before 7 tonight then do the enema thing......ugh!!!
My dear BF met me and another friend out last night to listen to some music.... on the way home I cried like a baby to him...he was so sweet. I think I cried about an hour !! he held me and told me it didn't matter that I could no longer have children..... I don't know it's just really hard saying goodbye to my female parts...My DS is at his dads I'm about ready to call him and see if he can come help me finish cleaning......I'm going to try and eat some soup then lie back down.
I thought a D&C was supposed to help with the flow but, this last period has been sooooooo heavy ! I'm on day 5 and it's not slowing down ! I feel completely drained !!!!!!
I can't wait for tomorrow to be over !!!!!
Thank you ALL for the support !!!! I see there's going to be 21 of us going tomorrow !!! I'll be thinking of you all sending warm thoughts and prayers to alllllllll of you !!! And to all of the already post-op sisters !!!!
I have to be there at 8:30 surgery is around 10:15-10:30 and I'll be staying for 23 hours.
As soon as I'm able to post I will and thanks sisters for all the prayers for me and my DS w/ the testicular lump.....he goes to the Dr. wed.... This all shall pass here's a quote a sister sent me....
"If God brings you to it - He will bring you through it."

I thought I would share it with all of you !!!
s to all

IBS here too


I also have IBS, and I've been waiting for my colon to wake up from my hyst. Knowing my IBS, I ate very light the last 2 days before surgery. My prep at home was nothing; but I did get an enema at the hospital. I'd rather do 10 enemas to 1 colonoscopy prep anyday!

Your BF sounds very supportive, and that makes a difference, no matter how many sisters we have behind us!

Do something nice for YOU today. Are you into bubble baths? My DH offered a massage my night before and it was so relaxing.

If you're on meds for IBS, be sure that the hospital knows...I agreed to not take one of my 3 meds while at the castle, and I'm a little sorry I wasn't more assertive about it.

Best of luck and we'll see you on the other side!

Deborah...My prayers are with you tomorrow. Your wait is almost over. It is so tough to sit around and think about the surgery. My surgery isn't until April 26th so I still have that waiting time. My prayers are also with your DS and hope all goes well with him at the doctors.
