As my surgery day approaches I feel a sense of unease seeping into stomach. My brain throws around wild scenarios that do nothing to comfort me. What if they have to take out both my ovaries and my uterus? What if they poke a hole in my uterus, or my intestines? What if I get a gas embolism from the gas they use to create space in my abdomen?
All of these concerns are very unlikely, but that doesn’t stop them from creeping in to my thoughts when I have a quiet moment.
I do know that I need to come to terms with the fact that they may need to remove my right ovary. Maybe they won’t have to but I would rather be prepared just in case. I just keep telling myself:
“If they have to remove it it’s because it isn’t doing anything in there other than causing trouble! There is no point in leaving it there to do nothing.”
I have made a list of things I need to get done at home before my surgery so that should keep my mind occupied for a while at least. I may make another post of things I plan on bringing to the surgery for those of you who may have the same procedure in the future.
My list is a pretty hefty one but I think I can do it all. My surgery is on the 3rd, so at this point I have 3 days left. YIKES! I worked 4 out of the past 5 nights from 7pm to 7:30am so I didn’t have time to do as much as I wanted to before now.
