Did you keep surgery a secret? What did you tell people?

Luclily, I was driving after I was released from the hospital. My mom drove from the hospital to her house , then I drove myself home which is about 25 minutes away. Then picked up my kids after school from aftercare.

10 months out. I’m still keeping my surgery a secret. Sort of. Besides for my parents siblings and two good friends I can trust. I don’t think it’s anyone’s business. When someone asks me what I’m doing I shrug it off or tell them I’m eating healthier- which is the honest truth.

you've got a wonderful excuse - you're going in for hernia repair! That's all people need to know for now - that is, anyone who needs to know why you're away from work - and most people don't even need to


Ok I’m doing this on my phone and I’m not sure exactly how to do this quoting thing sorry abt that... this is mine:


Hernia repair... That’s exactly what I’ve told people. It’s an awesome excuse. My mother is a PA and was struggling to get blood from my chains so she asked her college to. He wanted to know why I needed a pre op blood test. I didn’t know what to say. My mom was like- o she’s having a hernia repaired! I didn’t even know abt the hernia until my pre op endoscopy. But yes it is an awesome excuse

No one in my family even know about the SX at all..... i live out of state. Only people that knew was co workers and a couple of people hubby worked with. And they were told exactly what i told him to say...... having a hernia repaired..... Which i did.....

Hubby is so good now if people ask and he is around........ he jumps in and says.... She changed her eating habits... Which i did.

This weekend will be a challenge.....His parents are coming to spend the weekend with us and will be eating Breakfast, lunch and dinner around me...... Ughhhh
