RL medical adventures, Pt. 2

Well the meeting with my surgeon went really well.  I like him.  He told me that 85 percent of women with my condition need no further treatment after the surgery, so I'm hoping everybody sends me all the vibes, crossed fingers, prayers and other things that this will be so in my case.

Today, I'm getting to do one of those delightful lower gi preps, although, they assure me, it's easier than the colonoscopy prep...it's something like the equivalent of 18 doses of laxative over the course of the afternoon/evening.  Clear liquid diet.  I will certainly be ready for the happy juice come tomorrow.

Surgery is at 9:30 tomorrow.  If they can do it laproscopically, I'll be in the hospital overnight, but on my feet on Thursday.  If for some reason they have to do it with an incision, I'll be in the hospital 3-5 days.

Amazingly, all the tension I felt yesterday is gone, although I'm probably tenser than I realize.  Nonetheless, I'm ready to get this thing done!

I have not been on LJ much recently, and just got caught up on your journal while here on vacation. Belated happy birthday! RL has eaten up all my time and energy this summer, and my online life has been limited.

So let me say *HUGS* I am wishing you the best and sending you lots of positive energy about your surgery and recovery! You are such a strong, wise, and wonderful person, and I believe with my whole heart you will get through this medical hurdle with flying colors!

I know I have not talked to you recently, our schedules just have not seemed to match up. The few times I have tried to call you, you were either not home or sleeping. But you are in my mind and my heart, and I love you....

))))))good vibes(((((( and all that other stuff.

i hope they can do it without an incision, but if they have to do it tell the doctor to throw in a tummy tuck so it's more worthwhile (what's a couple minutes to remove the fat they cut through and trim the excess skin?).

take care of yourself after *hugs*

You'll be in my thoughts all day - and for the days in the future. Here's hoping everything goes off very smoothly and you're quickly back on your feet.
And that the hospital allows laptops, if you're there for several days!

I'll be thinking about you! =) I hope everything goes well, and you're back on your feet by the end of the week. *HUG*

I hope you have a quick and full recovery.

Just remember, surgeons are arrogant, or they would have a tough time being surgeons. Read and understand the caveats to the surgery, they are all yours to deal with.
