the belly ring??

Hello Ladies...hope everything is going good today...... I am curious, I was talking to the nurse in pre-op yesterday and the said a whole list of things not the wear such as contact lenses, make up deodorant,purfume, and so on.... she said that I am not to wear any jewlery except my wedding ring which they will put tape around my finger b4 hand or if i wear a Cross it can stay on also....ok heres my issue..I am having a TVH and they are not going in through the navel with the scopes or anything.....I have a C curve belly was done about 18 months ago....It fell out 2days b4 it was a yr pierced and closed rather quickly and HURT really bad to have the guy force it back in, She said it has to come out..I just called the drs office and left a message to ask them what the drs thoughts are on this issue...I mean if hes say it come out it comes out....but if they can tape it I would love them for it....What do you think the verdict will be???
*hugs* Hail

I had the same concern and asked my Dr., and she said that she would prefer that I remove it and then put it back in after the surgery. But when I explained to her that it was still healing and I'd hate to remove it because it hurt for so long when I had it done, she said that she would try to work around it for me. So it really is up to your Dr.

If they do make you take it out, maybe they can do something helpful like put a big, thick "stitch" through the hole to keep it open. Couldn't hurt to ask.

Hi Haileigh

I have a belly ring too and my last laporscopy surgery my doctor just taped it up out of the way, I had an incision just under it. Now I am having a LAVH and she said that she would do the same thing.

I agree with the other sisters, ask your Doctor. Who knows my doctor thought it was too nice to have it heal up. My doctor is a female and she was really nice about it.

Hope this helps.
