  I'm reading postings and it's comforts me somewhat to hear people mention the difficulty of waiting. My surgery date is Oct 12 and although im' going to work and trying to stay active, there's a part of me that's impatienly sitting back tapping it's foot and wanting to get this over with. It feels like I'm whining but it's a little difficult to get into things. I get excited about anything that has to do with moving ahead, even going to give blood to store or getting my cancer reource card in the mail. I have to sit back and laugh at how absurd this feels.
I know the only answer is to be patient, but I just wanted to get these feelings out.

Good Man,


That’s what the forum is all about.  Sharing good (positive), bad (negative). & ugly (scary).  Getting it out of your system by writing it down really is a positive! Keep talking….. if this helps you!!! 


And then the wonderful positive responses…back to you will be sooo helpful!  And if by chance a negative one comes in…. it just lets us know that ~ that that person needs a little extra attention from us to get them through it!


So ~ Just imagine this.  Back on 8-31 you joined in with us and now it is 9-16… and then it will be 10-12 and you’ll be on the road to recovery J  and then you’ll be someone the new kid on the block can lean on for information.


Have you started an exercise program??  If not… head to the YMCA or local gym and get busy.  This will help the time pass… and will benefit you in the long run when healing/recovery begins.


Take care,

Lee & Buddy

Hi Birdland,

You are absolutely Normal, and most of us had the same feeling of impatience. It will help if you stay active, and keep your mind focused on the posititive things. For example work on those Kegel exercises, and get outside and do some walking. Get yourself in good shape, and your recovery will be much easier. Soon this procedure will be behind you, and you'll be the one giving the advice.
