Welcome Lori! Thank you for sharing your story with us. Did you have an open surgery or was it laporoscopy? I'm having surgery on Monday; in 5 days!! I go back and forth between being very calm and very nervous. I have complete confidence in my surgeon, it's just the unknown that I'm worried about. You know, the "after" part. How bad is the pain going to be...all that stuff. You can have people tell you their experience, but you can never be prepared for the pain; everyone feels pain different. I found out today my check in time is at 11am. I wish it was earlier, but what can ya do? I am having my surgery through laparoscopy and probably hands assisted also. I've had several abdominal surgeries including a c-section, complete hysterectomy, and I had my sigmoid colon removed last year. So, my surgeon is going to do as much as she can without opening me up.
Well, thanks again Lori for sharing your story. You are definitely in the right place! Please keep posting, those of us who are waiting for surgery can't get enough personal stories.
