Grandma Barb I am Grandma Bev and I too will be having the Nissen soon. Mine is on the 21st. We will have to become forum buddies so we can compare notes. I have read about the surgeon doing 300 plus surgeries, I asked my surgeon how many he had done and he said "12."
Please readers don't comment on this, I am comfortable with him and he has come highly recommended by two other doctors. My hospital is a small one, but I didn't want to go elsewhere. He will also have another older surgeon in ther with him.
AnywayBarb, I think I am ready, I have cleaned my house and done my laundry. I stocked up on flavored waters, tea, jello, pudding, cream of wheat, soft crackers, vanilla wafers, grape juice, broth, ice dream, Popsicles, eggs and liquid medicines as well as prune juice. I am suspending my gym membership for two weeks and I purchased a body blade to exercise low intensity at home. I am so ready to be coming out the other side. Good luck with your surgery and I look forward to staying in touch.
