Question for those of you who had their surgery during "covid". How did you deal with not having a visitor? All I have is my hubby and from what I know he can't come see me. I can see me being very angry and depressed. Suggestions and how did you deal with it?
Pacing wires, does everyone get them?
How hard is it to recover form OHS?
Anyone here an online gamer, how long till you got back to gaming?
Been sleeping on wedge since my neck fusion surgery...anyone use one post valve replcement?
Leggings, are they possible to pull up after surgery?
Ok, so I weighed the pros and cons of tissue vs mechanical and had decided on tissue. Now after reading more I am like...there is not a 100% perfect choice. There is always a con. Second guessing myself now.
Had my last appointment at dentist yesterday, 2 teeth pulled and a filling replacing one that fell out. Doing ok, grateful for Tylenol 3. They called the surgeon to ask about future appointments and I have to take an antibiotic 2 hours before an appointment for the rest of my life. And I have to wait 6 months to go back after surgery.
Last two days haven't been the worst ever, the bad part is the numbing. Does not help that I have TMJ and it is in full pain mode. Today a filling for one that fell out and 2 extractions. Then I can heal. Just figuring out foods to eat for a few days. I am sure it will be eggs mostly. I am keto...no grain.
Evening, tomorrow is day 1 of the dentist. Trying to not get stressed, it is what it is. No choice I have to do it.
Questions...Ladies...bras. What is the best kind to get, Is a regular soft cup ok or should it be more structered like a sports bra with a zipper front? Is a shower seat a good idea for when you get home? Hospital, pants to wear so your butt doesn't hang out? Dry shampoo? Thanks :)
OK...scared more of the dentist than the surgery. I have 3 appointments after going the 1st time in 30+ years. A couple things to be done but not many, they said some people after a couple years are much worse than you. I also found a connection with the dentist, he was very kind.
Also on my list this next month is hair trim and color. I also need to find some sports bras from what I read and I think I might wear my old worn out leggings in the hospital.
Pretty much have a choice, but he suggested bio valve. All tests show only my valve is "bad" since it is bicuspid. Don't know which way to go, more reading I guess. Surgery date, as long as I get all the dental work done, March 9th.
UG, don't want any of this. It doesn't help that he was mom's surgeon for her lung cancer. Yea he did a good job, but feels strange to have the same surgeon. Glad that Scott can be there with me for this, ver y upset he can't see me at all after surgery, until he comes to get me when released.
