So...they'll pinch the fat on your belly (that's when it comes in handy!), and stick the little needle in there. It burns a little, but it doesn't last long. You may get a little bruise where it went in. I had little bruise spots all over my belly, as I had to find a new spot to inject each time. Look...if I can give the shot to myself (think of it!) you can get one little prick from a nurse! You'll do just fine.
You won't get any sleep at the hospital...I can assure you that. They'll be checking on you, and you'll be making trips to the bathroom and treks around the hallways. Once you're over the surgery, and safely home, you'll begin to rest.
Don't be surprised if it takes you a while the morning following the surgery, to get "sprung". I couldn't wait to get home, but it seemed to take forever for the doc to come and sign the release. They obviously don't care about
us getting home as much as we do!
Well...here's your send off for a super surgery!
Just think...when you're a member of the Wrapped Club, you can join us in cheering on others!
I'll be waiting to hear how you're doing. While every experience is different (seen through different eyes), there are some similarities. I trust you will find it much better than you thought.
Remember...surrender to your recovery. Let it lead the way. If you can do that, you will let go of the struggle that makes it difficult!
Hugs and best wishes!
