11 hrs to go and feeling ok.

Posted , 11 users are following.

I can't believe that I got given my date 12  weeks ago and I thought it would be  ages to go and now I am nearly there.I feel ok at the moment but in 11hrs I bet the nerves will be terrible.Everything is organised,I have even been out to buy the Movicol.I was going to save my Easter eggs until I got home but I have given in and eaten half of one before I down 2 sachets  of my preload before 9pm.It will be an early night as I have to be at the hospital by 7.15am.The lovely warm and sunny day today has brightened my spirits and I had a friend phone me from Spain today wishing me good luck.I appreciate everyone's tips and good wishes on this forum.I will sign back in as soon as I can to let you know how it went.Keep your fingers crossed for me.

Keep smiling

luv

Teresa

    Hi Teresa

    You sound very well prepared.  Glad you had an Easter Egg treat before you went, nothing like spoiling yourself.  Very glad you have had a lovely day.  Try and get a goodnight's sleep.  Good luck for tomorrow.  Let me know how you get on.  Will be thinking of you.  Take care.  

    Love

      I feel very prepared.All the housework is up to date,even things like curtains are washed and back up.I have changed my bed and normally I have a duvet and top sheet but now it is just the duvet to make it easier getting in and out.I have moved certain things around to make it easier to reach when I get home.The cupboards are full of food and the freezer.My garden chair is cleaned up ready to have in doors as I think the settee will be too low. Can I just ask you about my pre op shower in the morning.My book only states that you cannot wear make up but can I use shower gel and deodorant?

      Thanks Jacqueline.

      Hi Teresa

      Sorry got your full message too late to be helpful but no I was told not to use shower gel or deodorant.  

      By now you are in your recovery and hopefully you are not in too much pain and feeling comfortable.  Let me know how you are when you can.

      Love

      Hi Nicola

      I am very well, very surprised and very pleased.  So lovely to have the bowel and bladder where they are supposed to be.  Trying to rest in between having a potter about.  I think the trouble with having vaginal surgery is that you feel so well and you think you are fit, but the wall of tiredness catches up.  I slept for 4 hours this afternoon, it was lovely.  I think it will be very hard to give this new habit up!  

      Wishing you well for Thursday, try to stay calm (I know, not easy) it does help.  Let me know how you get on.  

      Love

      Hi Jacqui

      Well I have just finished the ironing, will do the housework tomorrow, my hospital bag is packed so hopefully will be able to have a relaxing evening tomorrow and an early night. I feel calm at the moment and think the nerves will kick in once im in hospital and waiting to go down.

      Will let you how I get on.

      Take care and look after yourself

      just half way through my preload.Not bad at all.I thought it would taste horrible.It is really quite plain tasting but 1.5 pints is a lot together down.
