Let me tell ya'll about this dream...



Recommended Posts

Good morning everyone!

I had a super weird dream last night and I couldn't wait to get to work so I can tell you all about it. It's a long one.

I hope to get VSG during spring break. I am freaking out about every detail because I've never had to stay in a hospital before.

So here goes...

The dream started out with a call from the hospital. They called me and told me to come in immediately for my surgery. I was confused because I thought my surgery would be happening at a later date. I told the woman on the phone that and she hit me with "Do you want the surgery or not?" So I'm like, "Yeah. I'm on my way." So my boyfriend and I get to the hospital and I'm so freaked out. I noticed that we did not pack a hospital bag and I was upset because I didn't have lip balm. (A lot of you guys say lip balm is a life saver after surgery.) So I was upset. My boyfriend offers me his lip balm but I'm still upset. So then, a doctor comes and separates us. The hospital staff puts me on a table and numbs an area on my stomach. In my mind I'm like, "So this is it. Here I go." So only a small part of my stomach is numb and the surgeon is like "Okay WeGettingThere, I'm gonna do an incision." He cuts a little and he leaves me like that. I'm not bleeding or anything. There's just this small gash in my belly. The surgeon is like "My assistant will finish this." HE LEAVES ME. The assistant doesn't do anything! She shows me to my recovery room and my boyfriend is there waiting for me. I'm like "Excuse me. I don't think I'm supposed to be left like this." AGAIN, I'M NOT BLEEDING. The assistant says I'm fine and to relax while she sits at the foot of my recovery bed and watches Maury or Jerry Springer. I forget. END OF DREAM.

So that was my dream. What do you all think? Did you guys have dreams about your procedures? Share them!

I constantly drempt they had canceled my surgery and it was for varied reasons. One that stocked in my mind was my surgeon had a Migraine headache and asked if he could have an intern do my surgery? I guess I wasn't worthy of a surgical resident. Another was it was Autumn Commencement and he decided he'd rather attend it. FYI my actual surgery was smooth, uneventful and Dr Needleman did do it. I can't say enough nice things about him, tableside, operations or follow-up, he does not shirk anything! He could give department lessons to several others of my Medical Stable, including the one I go to see today, my PCP.

That's so interesting. I usually have dreams about big events in my life. I've been looking into the surgery for a while. However this was the first dream I had about it.

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.

        My surgery was 10/19. #40 down since surgeon pre op visit. Getting close to end of soft foods. I think only issue going to regular foods is portion size. So far trying a new food every day. With no issues.
