WELL....had the lovely manometry test this morning and as per usual for me there were problems. It would go so far and stop....4th try did it. I have an appointment with my surgeon to go over all the tests next week with a tentative date of the 13th for surgery.

I think I saw on here some questions to ask my surgeon but can't locate it now...anyone remember? I have some of my own but I'm sure I've missed something.

Getting nervous now. I'm usually nauseous after surgery and worried if you can't vomit what that means. Am I being too wimpy about this?

Pain doesn't worry me...had 4 children naturally so figure I'll be okay there.

Make sure to ask the surgeon how many procedures he has done and what his/her success rate is.

Let them know before you go into surgery that you get nauseous. They will give you meds to help with this before surgery and after surgery. They have a lot of tricks to help with nausea after this surgery.

Take care,
