Hi Crystal. Just popped back for a quick nosey before getting an early night in. Thank you for your message. Had a wobble with the nerves yesterday, but feeling surprisingly calm today. Sat in bed in the hotel, but it will still be a 5.45 start, so that's why I'm having the early night. Just hoping that the liver reduction diet has worked, it's the only thing we can't know until someone is in there rooting around lol.
Thanks again, hope to be back very soon.
Night x

Crystal, did you go alone or what? Hubby wants to know if he can wait until I get gowned up. Is it just patients in the waiting room?

Hubby drove me so was with me for the day :) There is a ladies and a mans waiting room but they allow hubby's to sit with you in the waiting room :) You will be taken to get gowned up and then back to the waiting room, so he can wait there no worries. Mine stayed until i was taken to theater then shot of and came back after, the hospital took his mobile number so they could call him when i was done, but i called him once i was on the ward.

Thank you everyone. Feeling a bit like I've been kicked by a horse but otherwise surprisingly well.
Didn't get the surgeon I had previously met, had a lovely young one who was quite cute actually and I immediately felt a need to marry him off to my youngest daughter lol.
Stayed on Recovery section straight after the op for quite a few hours due to a big drop in my Blood pressure, but was moved onto the high dependency unit by midnight. Had to have some deep stitches due to bleeding when the surgeon removed his instruments and it's those that are blooming painful if I twist or move a certain way. The actual main op area is just a little tender.
I am surprised at the amount of medication, it just took me 25 mins to take everything and do the injection - which my 11 year old is fascinated by and currently begging to do tomorrows lol.
I am allowed shallow baths and had a shower before leaving hospital yesterday afternoon - bliss!!
Got home around two in the afternoon, slept until 7, managed a couple of quiet hours with my family, than back in bed by 9 and slept until 7.30 this morning.
Going to have a pj day for the first time I about 40 years lol.

Hi, wilbe. Yes it was Mr Clarke at Treliske. It was the first time I've met him but then again, I've met 5 different people who were supposed to be doing my surgery since my journey started. But he is a lovely, lovely man. Really puts you at ease, is straight, thorough and to the point - which is a trait that I prefer in people. You'll be more than fine in his hands. He even came onto the ward a couple of times to see how I was and if I had any questions in the few hours afterwards. I had the bypass, what are you having?
