My PCP called me today to tell me about it. It was discovered during pre-surgical testing. I am waiting all friggin day for the dr to call me back. No antibiotics yet as I haven't heard from him. Surgery is scheduled for Monday 8/10. Freaking out here.

Well this was the PCP's office that was freaking out. They already sent my clearance before that. The urine was taken during pre surgical testing at the hospital. The hospital called and gave me my arrival time and procedure time, so it seems that they are not worried. I also have no symptoms. So my fingers are crossed. I have to arrive at 10:30 for a 12:30 procedure.

Uh oh. It's ultimately up to your surgeon, but I would prepare myself for a delay.

Ok update: my PCP consulted with my surgeon. I have to go tomorrow morning to give another urine sample, then start antibiotics immediately. All is good for surgery. They are all ok proceeding as is. If it comes down to it they will give an antibiotic shot before the procedure. Hooray I'm good to go.

BTW thanks for all of the responses. My anxiety has now settled.

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!

      How do you stay focused? I'm struggling a bit the past three days.  All I want is sweets and carbs.  I have no clue what changed but for some reason I'm craving hard.  I'm literally dreaming about food and when I wake up, I'm thinking about my next meal.  I'm not "hungry" but so munchy.  I'm trying to stay focused, busy, exercise and the likes but this looking struggle is getting to be so hard.  I meet with my nutritionist tomorrow and I'm so hopeful she has some advice.  My protein intake is great, liquids on point, even throwing in some raw veggies and berries to curb the sweet/carb craving.  Thoughts?
