Thank you for all the words of encouragement and smiles! I am like you in that I am completely confident in my choice of surgery, hospital, surgeon and staff. Last week when my husband and I went to the pre op class sealed the deal for me. The staff was amazing! So attentive and helpful! The unknown of pain level, learning to eat again, and basic hospital things is the nervous part.
Dr Brown told me at my last appointment with him that I have a wicked sense of humor. So glad he recognized that because that's how I will get through the next few days! I have a pretty high pain tolerance and had a total hysterectomy about 8 years ago (the big 8 inch scar is still there). I survived that so I am hoping this will be a little easier-a girl can wish anyway.
My in laws are coming up later this week from Florida to "take care of me". Mom is a retired nurse so there was no keeping her away! They are wonderful and at least my husband can go to work without worrying I will get into something or do something while he's gone
I will be in touch in a couple days. Off to the losers bench I go!!!
