Back So Soon (At The Hospital)



I know I said I'd tell you about the third appointment I'd be getting but that's going to have to wait until tomorrow. Consider it some kind of "My health sucks" week as we look at all the things making me ill! In quite the contrast to how long I had to wait for the Barium test and the results (about two months overall) I'm actually heading back to the hospital tomorrow for a bit of pre-op.
The word "Pre-op" has really changed meanings lately
To be honest I'm not really sure what the pre-op process entails I've only been told it's to make sure that there won't be any problems with the surgery. There shouldn't be as it's such a simple little operation. I believe I may be put under an anaesthetic to see how I react to it in a controlled environment. It's a little daunting because of the fact that, yeah, I have no idea what's going on. I'll be fine though. This time I've managed to coax my dad into being able to come with me so he'll see me home fine if they do dope me up. 

It might end up taking up to three hours so it's pretty much a lost day for me. Especially if they do put me under for a bit. I've been told that even though I'll only be out for less than an hour during the actual operation they may need to keep me overnight. If I do get high on anaesthetic I need to write a blog post while under the influence. 

For the curious the actual operation itself will be in two weeks on Wednesday October the 14th.

  1. Yeah you damn well not go home on your own after being under anesthesia. Don't think they'd even let you go if you aren't fully functional though. Make sure to ask plenty of questions, it helps get rid of the "shit what the fuck are they doing" and might teach you a thing or two!

  4. Did you have to study for the Barium Test?
    Just make sure they take the right parts.
    Don't wanna have to call you Marie.
