Almost SURGERY day :) YAAY



Recommended Posts


Tuesday I had my Pre-admitting appointment where I will be having my surgery and when they handed me my folder of information for surgery day with the soap and the breathing device, made everything more real. Can’t believe I only have 2 weeks and 2 days till Surgery Day!! I will be having my Pre-op Office visit with my surgeon on the 12th (anyone know what happens at the pre-op office visits?). 

I know the next two weeks will be going by fast .

They pretty much they ask you if you have any questions.. they tell you who will be attending the surgery with your doctor..
Blood test and they tell you what you can and can't do a week before your date...
I just had my pre-op 7-30-2019
I go under 8-2-19

They had me sign consent forms and go get blood work. He asked if I had any questions. Congrats on your upcoming surgery! It's an exciting time!

I had my preop class 4hrs and preop visit with surgeon immediately afterwards today.
Exactly what Big_ange said. Questions answered. Once again review preop and post OP expectations and medicines. Discuss surgery day and what to expect. Discuss pain management both meds and alternatives. I'd done labs, xrays and ekg a month ago, just reviewed it again.
No preop diet for my surgical team. Exactly 14 more days to go. [emoji114][emoji114][emoji114][emoji114][emoji169][emoji169][emoji169][emoji169]

The soap is to disinfect and the breathing device is for after surgery to help taking in deep breaths and
“ An incentive spirometer is a device used to help you keep your lungs healthy after surgery or when you have a lung illness, such as pneumonia. Using the incentive spirometer teaches you how to take slow deep breaths.”

Three days after mine. Other than all of the medicine they gave me to take to keep the stomach coated and stop reflux the only thing I've eaten is pop cycles. I bought the Outshine no sugar added. They are fruit bars as I can't tolerate sugar-free stuff. They are wonderful and my best friend to take away the taste of the medicine.

The soap is to disinfect the night before surgery & if there is any soap left, shower with it the day of surgery to make sure you are clean b4 leaving to go to hospital.

      TOMORROW IS MY DAY!
      I am so very excited! My sister is here with me and my son. I am so excited. My anesthesiologist called me tonight to discuss our plans for tomorrow. I am not feeling nervous at all. Just excited for the future!
      I did buy a few bottles of CFpreop which is really suppose to help you stay hydrated. It's pricey but I feel it's worth it. I tried the Watermelon tonight. I have to stop all liquids after midnight and I go into the hospital at 5:30am for check in. My surgery is at 8am.
      SO HAPPY for this journey!
      You can get the CFpreop on Amazon if anyone is interested. It comes in Watermelon and White Grape.

      2 Days Till Surgery!   It's time! Time to start my clear liquids! I am prepared! Tomorrow I will only take in clear protein, bone broth and jello for the next two days.   My surgery will be done on Monday, December 9th at 8:00 AM. I have to be at the hospital at 5:30 AM (EWWW) but who cares? LOL. Funny how you don't get all upset about doing things that are not so fun when you are doing it for a purpose! . I don't plan on doing much this weekend. I have one errand to do and after that is over I will return to my hotel room and go into prayer and meditation. Believer or not, you got to do what you need to do in order to get your heart and mind in a healthy place. . I have a Pre-Op drink I ordered that is supposed to really help your body hydrate before surgery. It's not in the photo just because I don't have it in my hands yet. I will put photos of it up when I get it. . All I can think about it how blessed I am to be able to get this done. I know how it feels to be healthy and happy then have it snatched away. It makes this all the more joyful for me. . So, it's time to lay it down and start letting my mind process what we are getting ready to do. . By the way...funny story. My doc said he had to cancel a surgery because his patient said she thought "Mashed Potatoes" was a clear food! Um, there will be no mashed potatoes for me! LOL This is HAPPENING! . Last thought for today: I knew when they drew my blood yesterday it was going to leave a nasty bruise and I was right. I am so sensitive to that kind of stuff.

      Cold no.2 since surgery. The funny part is now Ive lost my voice. I feel better in my sinuses now, but my voice is 90% gone. Losing your voice as a person who talks as a teacher for a living is so funny. You feel normal and when you speak, nothing comes out. I hope it goes over by Monday, but if it doesn't oh well. Ill be at school and cant talk to the students. Oh gee darn.

        I hope it gets better. I sing and I know how it is to lose your voice. I always get scared that it won't come back. LOL but it always does. Try Fisherman's Friend. It's nasty but it works. You can find it on amazon.

      2. Krestel

        Ohh..I love fisherman's friend..especially the sugar-free ones. Here, we can get it in all the shops. They are strong though.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it
