I got up early the day of the surgery.. cleaned house..took my nexium, antibotic, and then proceeded to the 30 minute drive to the doctors office. Took my ativan on the way...got to doctors office. did all my measurements, weight, doctor came in did all of his drawings. took me across the hall, got scrubbed down..told me to lie on the table..gave me my twilight medication. after that I remember waking up and the nurses helping me to get dress. gave me some water mouth was dry. stayed in the office for about hour. Went home took a nap for about an hour, got up walked around quiet bit. not too much pain so far..i did take my tylenol 3 with codiende. probably would have slept better but husband's snoring. Got up this morning and went and a walked a mile on the treadmill. going back to doctor today for follow up....ps. i was constantly going to the bathroom peeeing. i have enough pain to know that i had something done at this point. but stomach is still completely numb.

Hey there, thanks so much for sharing your journey with and good luck with your procedure, I hope everything goes well.

It's completely natural to be nervous before any kind of procedure. I'm sure you'll be fine though. Do you have someone to go with you on the day and support you?
