    Kristin (_withak)'s Surgery Date!

    I felt very much the same way. Totally zen. On the day of, every time I felt myself starting to get nervous, I would close my eyes, take a deep breath, and go back to the zen place. I also kept reminding myself that this was a choice that I made and I might as well go into it with positivity and optimism. I’m doing great! I was only in the hospital for one night. Got home on Thursday evening, slept a ton on Friday and took a short walk, and then yesterday I went to Target and today to a casino! I’m not saying that I was 100%. I’m feeling pretty weak and not moving so fast, but it’s amazing how much better I feel each day. I’m so excited for what’s ahead for you. Stay in the zen place and do everything your doctor tells you to. Best of luck tomorrow!!!!

    I head in first thing tomorrow morning. Right now it's mostly things coming out, since I drank the magnesium citrate I was told to drink. Haha! I'm doing well so far.

    Thanks @Boho Rosy! I have to be at the hospital at 8:30, surgery is at 10:00. I'm actually feeling great. A little restless, but no nervousness yet. I'm sure I'll get a few butterflies in pre-op tomorrow morning, but I'm honestly feeling so zen about the whole thing. I keep taking my own temperature about it: am I nervous yet? No? How about now? Should I be nervous? Ha. How's your first week going?

    @CZJ Recommend taking a probiotic too - surgery does a huge number on the bacteria living in your gut. For what it is worth, and this is not a commercial endorsement just a "this is what I did" I took the Culturelle lactobacillus GG probiotic before surgery and then for something like 10 days thereafter. I did not have a single instance of painful gas... and so far as I can tell, in the group that had surgery while I have been on the Forum almost everyone else has had painful gas. I personally think it made a big difference. Hope this is helpful and that your painful gas... goes away!
