Back On Track

Just a quick, end of week, update…

I met with the new surgeon yesterday and I am on his schedule for Tuesday. So this process is back on track!

Tuesday will be my laparoscopy. I am nervous about it. Probably more nervous than I was the first time I did it. I don’t know why but I just am. I think I have so many more expectations surrounding this time. Also more complications…

First of all, just getting this scheduled was a pain. Getting canceled with the first doc and having to be referred to someone completely new and establishing care. Super annoying.

But the bigger issue is what to do with my 2 year old. I don’t know how early I will need to check in. I wont know until the day before. This makes it tricky to figure out child care. If it’s an early morning time I may not be able to drop her off to daycare before I need to be checked in. Eric has to drive me, obviously, so I don’t know what to do with her. Worst case scenario I suppose she will come along and wait in the waiting room with Eric. I hope it doesn’t come to that.

I am only taking two days off of work (I need to save as many sick days as possible for the maternity leave because we suck at healthcare in the US). I hope this is enough time to feel well enough to come back. I have heard some people feeling fine the next day, others feeling like it took a month to get back to normal. Last time it wasn’t too bad, so fingers crossed….

Anyway… just wanted to give an update on where I was in the process. Wish me luck and I will post an update sometime next week (provided I am feeling up to it)

  1. Good luck! I had mine on a Monday and worked in the Wednesday and it was fine so try not to stress about that aspect of it. If your job isn’t too physical then it will be cool. I did find the internal pain to longer to go away this time which was interesting. Apparently they removed a lot of adhesions while in there so my Dr believed it was probably just that. Good luck!
