Yeah, and I was reading about Vioxx on here...I was prescribed it to aid in preventing the inflammation...But, I'm scared to take it...I don't want it to affect my stomach, like I am hearing about on this board...I have to take it tonight, eek!! I'll update you as to my surgery progress....I hope it's not as bad as the stories on here I've read about....
Hi, thanks for your replies! I am getting nervous as the time is getting closer. I have to be at the hospital at 6 am, surgery is at 730am. Hopefully I will be home by the mid-afternoon. My parents are fablous so they are taking off of work tomorrow and tuesday to take care of me. I will definitely update you once I regain my ability to type!!! My dad went to the grocery store today and got me pudding, gatorade, applesauce, banana baby food and icees. I will also stay away from the ice cream because of the mucous and the fact that sometimes it irritates my stomach. I am going to hydrate myself well tonight at dinner. I told my parents I want a big juicy steak for my last supper!!!! Let's just hope I react well to the pain killers...I got Lortab, which is liquid Vicodin I believe...I am also taking 50mg's of Vioxx...That is supposed to help with the inflammation. I will let you know how it goes!!!
