I'm trying so hard to gather as much information as I can and be as prepared as I can be. I have started a number of different "lists" and am starting to write down questions I want to ask at the consultation this upcoming Monday. I don't know why it feels so important, although it really is important, but it feels like aggravatingly important to make sure I think of EVERYTHING I want to ask, and write it down so I do not forget. I'm just worried I will forget to ask something important.


I know I'll be just fine though. I'm just trying to "sort" everything through in my head and feel a bit more clear headed and focused on one thing at a time. I need to go to the consultation before I start worrying about things like the protein shakes and liquid diets and all of that stuff and I think that those things will be more clearer after the consult because he will be telling me what I need to do for those things like pre-op diet and what to do for that and the stuff for after the surgery, etc. So I think all of that stuff will be clearer after the consult so I can just focus on the consult 'right now'.

I'm a list person too, in making mine it helps me feel organized and that helps me feel more in control. Having this surgery is a very out of control feeling all the way through. I am 17 days post-op and still it is a roller-coaster ride. Keep your lists because it is a great outlet for us, but after written try to let the worry about them go. I'm excited for you and hope everything goes quickly and well!

I felt the same way. I totally crashed when I got to the doctors office though. I know I need to write stuff down and ask questions but when he came in i swear to God whatever was going on upstairs, just leaked out of my ear and I think I just stared stupidly at him for 10 minutes.... sigh.
