Just got a call from the surgeon's office.  He's had a personal emergency and I have to reschedule my surgery!  Gonna try for Monday.
I was so ready - packed and everything.  Even mixed the "delicious" bowel prep liquid.  Well, the good part is I can eat today and don't have to spend the evening on the toilet.
I am really disappointed - wanted to get the surgery over with.  Well, that's life.  Gonna try to see the positive side (as soon as I can figure out what that is. lol) tongue
Hope everyone's doing well.

Well at least you had not drank that woderful prep. That would have been grounds for kickin a doctor in the butt. Hope all goes well monday. Keep us informed...
If we would read the secret history of our enemies,we would find in each mans life sorrow and suffering enough to disarm all hostility.

Oh, pp, how hard for you, especially when you were dreading it so much. I'm sorry... but as Sniper says, at least you didn't drink the prep needlessly!! That would have been additionally upsetting!!!!

Let us know what happens,

I'm sorry your surgery got postponed. But like everyone said, at least you hadn't started drinking yet. I had one of mine postponed once and had to wait several days while the doctors decided whether to do surgery or not, so I do understand how frustrating it is. (((hugs)))
