Surgery Finally!

Posted , 4 users are following.

Afternoon All! 

FINALLY I have my surgery date for the 4th March! its been a long time coming although I appreciate some of you folks on here have had to wait a lot longer than I have, albeit as we all know the wait always seems to be forever! 

I have many hospital appointments before the operation I feel like I spend my time there, due to me complaining about stomach issues which if you have followed my story you will know about the constant cramps and pain I have endured over the months. I have a ultrasound scan of the abdomen and pelvis on Friday, I also have my pre assessment appointment on Thursday and have to take in my 24 urine sample and more blood tests! 

I also have a CT scan of the arteries on Sunday and a follow up appointment with my consultant on the 2nd March, with then surgery on the 4th which seems odd as its a Sunday! 

Im hoping all goes well and I start to become the person I used to be as I certainly aren't who I used to be now, the stretch marks are getting wider and more of them, hair loss in the shower is becoming more frequent, aches and pains and all the other common cushy symptoms! 

I shall keep you guys posted!
