TT & Hysterectomy; Preop labs tomorrow. Wish me luck the last time we had to cxl surgery!!!!

I'm a 42 y/o mother of 3 who has been wanting a TT for quite some time. After the decision to undergo a hysterectomy last month, I discussed the desire to also have a TT since I was going under the knife. My GYN recommended a PS and I researched a few on my own. I decided on Dr. Johnston due to his credentials, experience, references, friendliness, honesty, mannerism, and office staff. Decision was made 6/18 and surgery was scheduled and balance paid 6/26. Due to a prior engagement my pre-op testing was the day prior to surgery (today). I found out this evening that my potassium level is too low and the anesthesiologist cancelled the surgery. My GYN and PS called me, along with the hospital nurse. They were both very apologetic. The PS stated he will work after hours if needed by the GYN when my labs are okay to proceed. My surgery will be a scheduling priority. Now I have to increase these levels in order to reschedule. I'm so disappointed...so ready to be rid of Saggy Sue. I guess the wait game starts all over (sigh). Guess I'll continue taking Arnica and Bromelain and hope for the best.

Well, I was told today that the earliest available date to have my surgery is 7/31/12. No matter how disappointed I am, I can't change what has happened. So, I'll return to work on Monday and work through 7/30/12. Wish me luck fellow TT's. Hopefully, nothing will go wrong and the surgery will take place on the 31st.

I'm so nervous about my lab work tomorrow. I hope my potassium levels are still up. Don't think I could stand another set back. Fingers crossed for the best!!!! :-)
