Re: Ericollin Sphincteroplasty surgery next week--scared!!
Thanks for the prayers and support. I know you have been through a lot also. I have listened to the doctor, and I know what to expect, but I think I would feel more comfort from someone who has actually been through it. The nurse actually said it was good that we scheduled so soon, so I would not have too long to sit around and think about it. My surgery entails general anesthesia, 3-5 day hospital day, drains placed, foley catheter, epidural for pain control, clear liquid diet for a week, and I am just nervous about everything. I also have my 3rd full bowel prep in 1 1/2 weeks and that sucks! I hope you are doing better. I am a nurse, and it is so hard to be a patient! Thanks again. I will keep you posted. You are also in my prayers as I know how hard this must be on you and your family. My 17 month old son weighs 25 pounds, and I will be unable to pick him up for 6 weeks--this is also bothering me!
