Constantly.... lol.

I was scheduled for Aug 25 but had to push the date to Sept 22 because I got shingles in late June. It's taken a full two months to get mostly over it. My PCP thinks it was stress caused by preparing for surgery. I don't really know. That said, I'm getting a flu shot today as it just became available in my area and I don't want to postpone again! I'm sure I just had bad luck and that most folks don't have to postpone. I'm so paranoid now that I may live in a bubble for the next 6 weeks!

....just realized this is out of context....this was in response to a post about being afraid of getting sick and having to postpone....unfortunate I can't delete my post...only edit.

no it's not ur head. It wat we have accustomed to...eating... Now that we can't due to the pre op diet we seem to be losing it. Two days ago after just starting I felt like a cannibal, lol. I could eat any and everything. Now I just hanging in there trying to keep busy takes my mind off eating. But I know wat u mean

Question - why did he postpone due to the shingles? Im curious - because Im one of those lucky people 1 in 10,000 that get reoccuring shingles... I put that on my form that I filled out at my dr... but he never questioned it... I get shingles every 6-8 weeks - and just finished another case of them - yet I have surgery scheduled in 2 weeks. This makes me nervous that yours was rescheduled for that far away due to your shingles.

Ok, so I have to be at the hospital at 6 tomorrow morning. I am starting to get the anxiety mess. I am crying like such a baby. :( I want this, I really do, and I have come so far (been working on it since January) But I am starting to get the what-if's. My boys just went to stay with my daughter a night early so that they don't have to get up so early to go there, or sit around alone at home. Besides my youngest son is worried about me (which breaks my heart), and I just start crying when they leave. I know I will get through this, but why am I so emotional??? This has been one rough journey. Good luck to those who have surgery tomorrow! I look forward to hearing all of your wonderful progress!!

Sandi - what a drag to get shingles so often. My medical team feels that my immune system is not yet up to par from fighting shingles and since this is not a medical emergency...like an appendicitis...it's better for me to postpone. I would assume that since you get shingles so often, your immune system is working at its peak and you get unlucky with shingles. The outbreak I had made me very sick and I assume that the outbreaks you get now are usually not so severe. (I hope not because I spent weeks in bed, and even today, a full two months after its start I still have some nerve pain in my back and ribs). Yuck.

Having said that, You might want to check-in with your surgeon just to be sure. Most

Likely it won't be a problem for you since it's your normal. Also, I think I got unlucky with a weird case that lasted so long. Sorry to add to your worries. Keep us posted!

I'm new to this site. I just found it tonight. I have my final cardiac clearance tomorrow to determine whether or not I have surgery on Thursday! I am so nervous about both things.

Is anyone else crying a lot easier? I feel like it's the first time in my life that I have had enough Water in my body and my eyes don't know what to do but cry. :rolleyes:

      I'm checked into the hotel near the hospital and just had my last protein shake of the day. My mom has kindly gone down to the restaurant alone so as not to make me die from watching her eat dinner. Checking in at the hospital tomorrow at 10:50am. So ready!

      Six months pots-op as of yesterday. I celebrated with a HIIT class where I was challenged to do a wall-assisted handstand. I truly thought there's no way in hell that I can get up there. Well... I proved myself wrong. The instructor said, "Just try getting one foot up there." I tried and it was so easy, that the other foot went up, and the next thing that I knew, I was standing on my hands with my legs up in the air, leaning against the wall.
      Last weekend I challenged myself to a 10-mile hike, and I was SURE that my legs would be non-functional that night and the next day. But that didn't happen at all.  But I did learn that I need a new hiking boot or shoe. I've got a goal of walking the Portuguese coastal route of the El Camino later this year, and I good shoes will be essential.
      I've hit another weight loss stall, but that's to be expected. I am so close to my goal already that if it does take 6 more months to get that last stone off, that's okay with me. And I am building muscle, so that stone may never move. S'alright friends, s'alright.
