    Any post-oper's with toddlers?

    i'm worrying about the same thing with a 2 yr old. I had my gallbladder out 6 months ago and it was worse than I thought. Having my appendix out was a breeze and who-ha stitches after natural child birth were nothing. GB took me a good 1 1/2 weeks recovery to get back to normal.
  2. My surgery is 1/29 and I'm getting more and more nervous. I was so confident in my choice and now I'm just scared I'm making the wrong decision.

    My only regret

    I kinda am getting that nervous feeling now. Like what if I'm doing the wrong thing? What if some major complication happens? Then I think I've researched everything and know it will be 2 weeks recovery and about 1 1/2 months of "special" diet but after that this is the tool I need to help me feel full--allow me to eat some-- but keep me on track.

    How much did your dr. Want you to take to help clear you before surgery?

    Sleeved with a toddler?

    That's great. I'll actually need someone to watch her while I'm in the hospital Tuesday night and hubby's in class (about 4 hrs) and then probably Wed-Thurs. for 4 hrs each day. Right now luckily I'm off of work on medical leave but had my gallbladder out and was too sore to move around much for a week with her (and that was 6 months ago). She's now 26 months and does a lot for herself so honestly think I can handle it past the first few days.
  9. So I have surgery on Tuesday and just found out my MIL cannot watch our toddler while hubby is at night classes for the first few days. I'm now trying to find a babysitter. I want to know how other moms did it. Did you have help with your baby? Did you watch them on your own? How did you do it? Thanks!
  10. Any new news on your Dr office submitting to insurance?
