Oh dear, 5 days out

Feb 21, 2016 8:47 PM

Well, starting to have the tiniest bit of anxiety that is starting to creep up in my brain. 5 days out from sedated cystoscopy on Friday. So freaking glad I decided to go with the wonderful sedation rather then doing it awake as they offered. I know that I will NOT go it alone with the help of my wonderful pain family. What also makes it easier for me is that they know me really too well in the surgery center(after 6 trips last year), and that one of the nurses there, I have known for a really long time. She said to me last Thursday that she will meet me in post-op when I come out of the procedure room and she usually checks on me when I'm first admitted. So that helps tremendously already. It also helps that every day this week is FULL with appointments, so less time I have to stress about it. Just needed to get that out.

From my experience with them you won't be aware anything once you're sedated. I hope that helps you.

Gibber, I'm always this way about a week before so I'm quite used to it. Just not quite sure what to expect when I wake up is all.

I get really nervous before procedures and big appointments too! I hope you find enough distractions this week to take your mind off it.

Amanda, when you wake from the sedation there should be no issues. Since they are not cutting it anything, you'll wake to peace
and quiet and then you can go home and rest. 💕🙏🏻🌻
