Pre-op today

Hi ladies,

I had my long awaited pre-op today. I was so prepared with my list of questions (courtesy of my wonderful hyster sisters) and nerves of steel.

I fell apart. The first thing the nurse asked me was about my nerves. I didn't realize that by this time I was white as a ghost and sweating. I normally have regular blood pressure but it was way up this morning. So much for nerves of steel. I did get all of my questions answered and they were great offering all kinds of information. I guess the reality of it only being a week away hit me this morning. I am not stressed about the actual surgery, it is surgery period. I don't like being touched by strangers so this is quite an ordeal. I have been ultra emotional for the rest of the day. I hope I can settle down, I still have 7 days left.

Pre-op today


It will be okay! I had my pre-op a week before, then another one the day before. I only had one week to prepare for surgery, my blood pressure was up as well. Stress will do that to you.

I'm glad you took your questions to your doctor and received answers!
