I just got word that my surgery is scheduled for 9:20 tomorrow morning (EST). I have to check in at 8, so have to leave at 5. Boy, I wonder how I'll sleep tonight ... or how I'll wake up if I do take a sleeping pill? Anyrate, no food or water past midnight except sips of water to take what medication I need in the morning.
I have to pack my bag, otherwise, I'm ready to go. I'm so sick of pain medication and what it does to my mind. It barely cuts all the pain anyway. I can't believe how quickly from diagnosis to full blown horrendous symptoms and growth in the herniated disk, happened to me. I seriously believe that the chiropractors BOTH had something to do with "moving" my pain from my head, (constant & severe with no relief for 6 months) to my limbs & manipulated the hernia in a way to make it grow in 5 months time from the last MRI. They both should have turned me away until given the go ahead by a surgeon who knows what he's talking about. Oh well, I'll put it in my book ;-)
I will not feel any of the needling pain this time tomorrow. I don't know what, if anything I'll feel by then but do intend to make my stay in the hospital a quick one. I will do a quick recover to get home but wonder how I'm going to prevent myself from doing too much before it's time once I'm home. My husband suggested locking me in the other side of the house, (where I've moved myself to, to prevent germs) so I CAN'T see it to clean it!
We're going out to dinner tonight since we won't be doing that for awhile.
Thanks for keeping me in your thoughts,
