Can I get some of those handy dandy vibes please?

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone!

Today is my last day at work before my gall bladder surgery tomorrow. I would appreciate getting some good luck and heal quickly vibes.

I'm not really worried about the surgery - but I am concerned about the recovery. My boys won't understand why they can't climb all over momma like they are used to. Kevin may be good, but my little D-man just loves to climb all over momma every chance he gets.

The good news is that at least the boys will be going to daycare every day - except for this Friday and I'll get to spend some quality time with the kitties without the boys interfering.

Thanks!

Good luck!

Two of my friends have had gall bladder surgery. One has kitties, the other has a rambunctious 15-month-old human. Neither the kitties nor the toddler understood the whole "don't stand on Meowmy/Mommy" concept, but it all worked out for them in the end with a minimum of discomfort. If you need any post-surgery help/advice, just let me know and I'll ransack their brains for you.

Just to cheer you up, though -- both my friends are much happier and healthier since they've had the surgery. It's made such a big, positive difference in their lives!

i had absolutely no problems with mine. i was 42 when i had mine out - laproscopically. more problems with the rash the bandages caused [i'm allergic to adhesive!] i think you'll have as much trouble with the kits as the kids - don't yours like to knead your tummy? anyway, the only lasting effect was fatigue. i was tired for about a week afterwards.
upside - i did so well with that surgery [my first since my tonsillectomy at 3 years of age] that i decided to have gastric bypass surgery, which also went extremely well!

It is finally here! Sending fast recovery vibes

I was ok until Lucy jumped onto one of my incisions. I wasn't too happy but survived it without any problems.

Speedy recovery vibes coming your way. Don't try to do too much - take advantage of this downtime.

Thanks everyone!

I'm not to worried about the cats - as they are getting older, they are less rambunctious and willing to sit on my lap for snuggles. They are no longer allowed in the bedroom when I am in there so all is good while I sleep.

Derek is beginning to settle with his crib instead of co-sleeping and has just been weaned (boy my boobs hurt) so I won't be hurt while breastfeeding. I am hoping for smooth sailing!

Peepers did that to me (2 times) when I had my perodid (sp) gland removed. That was painful!!

I have had more surgery in 36 years then most people have in their lives!

Many good vibes coming to you! If it goes as smoothly as it did for my mom, you'll feel fine in just a few days. But don't admit it! Pretend you're in pain and relax for a month!
post #22 of 27
that all goes smoothly, Adrienne, and that you recuperate quickly!

Tons of smooth surgery & quick recovery ! You will feel so much better once you are healed!!!

I will be praying for you! My old boss went through Gall bladder surgery a few months ago. Her son is 7 but what she did might be helpful to you. She showed her son the bandages and things on her belly (they called them her 'battle scars' ) so it woul help him to remember. Maybe you can call them 'big boo boos' instead! Might not work with your littlest one so much as your older though. Worth a try though!

Thanks - DH is doing pretty ok right now, a few issues with anxiety occasionally. He has the week off for me and should post here with my user name to update everyone about the surgery. My mom will come tomorrow afternoon to help with the boys, so all is looking good!

I'm actually looking forward to the time off.
