  1. I forgot…a pillow too for on the way home. It really helps.
  2. I had some lists from this site, but believe me you're not gonna use hardly any of that stuff. I would take this: your own toothbrush biotene spray (my mouth got dry several times and this was a lifesaver. Just a little spray lasts a long time) phone and charger gown that buttons or zips in the front so they can get to your surgery sites No additional clothes. The clothes I wore there, I also wore home underwear sports bra or no bra your medications vaseline or lotion (my skin was dry and my sister did parts of my body that i couldn't reach and also my skin started itching from the medication; the vaseline really helped with that) I also took a tiny "To Go" lysol spray for the gas. but I didn't use because I had no gas. most people do Comb and/or brush reading glasses if you use them Good luck
  3. I had my surgery on Wednesday and it went well. I had some pain so dilauidid (sp) pain meds was my best friend. I have not passed gas at all; just been doing some burping. I had a slight fever but nothing they were too worried about. I didn't have a drain either. I did walk a lot. Thank God my sister was here with me to push me when I didn't want to do anything but sleep. I'm heading home sometime today; can't wait.
  4. Well I'm heading in for surgery at 8 am this morning. Good to all who are having surgery today.

    It took me 1 week.
  6. I chose to keep mine very private. If they ask how did I lose weight, I'll just say I had an appendectomy. My twin sister and my niece are the only ones that will know. I'm not even telling my son. My twin sister had hers done in Mexico in December. The same circle are the only ones that know, me and her daughter.

    Surgery Today :)))

    Good luck...keep us posted!
  8. Wow. you're better than me. if I couldn't reach them by phone, I would've been at that office the very second I found out so they can look you straight in the eye. I hope you're calling and letting them know that you have a buddy that is getting surgery that day and that they lied to you.
  9. Hi All: I am soooo upset. I wasn't feeling good this morning, feeling kind of week and chills. I went down to my job's infirmary (praying all the way) to check to see if I had a fever and I do. I can't believe this. I have a fever of 100.9. I took some Tylenol. I'm too afraid to call the doctor for fear that he'll want to reschedule. I think I'll wait until tomorrow to see how things are going. Anyone else had a fever before surgery? Did the doctor allow you to go through with it?
  10. I'm scheduled for surgery on Wednesday and am starting to feel ill. I'm going down to the nurse in our building to check my temp. I hope that it's ok.
  11. You need to contact your dr regarding the steroids. Did the dr you went to know that you were having surgery this week?

    So disappointed :'(

    Hang in there. There's the appeal process. It may take you a little longer, but I'm claiming that it'll go through for you. What was the reason for your denial?
  14. Wow!!! You look amazing. You will be my inspiration girl! I do have a question. How did you get your arms to look like that without having hanging skin? I'm afraid of having hanging skin and won't be able to wear sleeveless clothes. How often do you work out and what do you do? Again, you rock!!!
  15. I'm scheduled for March 4 as well. Good luck!
