妈妈改头日记:Rhonda’s Surgery Day

I’ve thought a lot in the past week about what to say about my actual surgical experience. I could go on 和 on for days talking about menial things 那 meant a lot to me, 要么 I could sum it up in one sentence: “It went perfectly.” I’我会尝试找到一个快乐的媒介。

The weekend before was an absolute whirlwind. I anticipated spending 那 weekend in an anxiety-induced haze, but 七月初的事件 防止我过多思考与手术有关的任何事情…我只是有太多事情要做。我确实有轻微的正常焦虑,可以通过下载手术前的冥想并在晚上听它们,喝茶并缠扰我的护士安吉和 霍克博士 with questions. I have to say, 那 the fact 那 I know 和 work with the man who would be operating on me was such a tremendous boost to my confidence, I didn’和我可怜的母亲一样,花在忧虑手术上的时间几乎与之差不多。

我确实花了很多时间来整理一些愚蠢的东西,比如去医院穿的衣服。您’会得到很多建议…在顶部穿纽扣,穿宽松的裤子,等等。实际上,到达后我花了大约5分钟的时间穿好衣服 西进 at 5:45am, 和 after 那, it was a rush of nurses undressing me, redressing me, 和 prepping me for my doctor to come in 和 mark me up (a process 那 took about 20 minutes). I figured I’d有时间和我的医生拍照,甚至发布一个小小的Facebook更新信息,但没有。手术护士即使没有效率,也算什么。幸运的是,我在Progress West遇到的每位员工都很高效 真的,真的很擅长他们的工作。一世’我从来没有在医院得到过如此好的照顾。从护士让我什至没有感觉的情况下插入IV,到康复室的护士竭尽所能使我在手术后感到舒适,它们都很棒。

手术本身被安排了6.5小时–that’s a long time, 和 they do a great job of keeping family 和 friends updated by handing out little pagers 那 continually beep with messages during the procedure. “肚子塞满了,朗达很好。” I know my mom really appreciated 那, especially when it was discovered 那 I had a massive hernia 那 needed to be repaired as well. My 6.5 hour surgery ended up being 7.5 hours, but I had a great surgeon 和 everything went wonderfully, 和 even my recovery wasn’t too bad.

我在这里住了一晚,再说一遍,我无法对Progress West的护理人员说得足够多。 RN,外科技术人员,甚至是做饭的人(确实非常好)都很棒。我们聊天,笑了,他们真的鼓励我休息或走路…无论我觉得我需要什么。我从来没有遇到过糟糕的经历,也从来没有要求过两次。护理标准超出了我的期望,我’m really proud 那 we send our 肚子t patients there.

我赢了’t lie, I was in pain…我一次完成了很多程序。 丰胸, 增强, 肚子t, 下半身举升, 吸脂 和 a hernia repair. But it was always bearable 和 I truly believe 那 pushing myself to get up 和 walk as much as I could was one of the best things I could have done. You’会很痛,尤其是在肚子塞满肚子后…but you’我必须走路。即使它’s just 20 feet. You’比起你,我会感觉好多了’t.

现在,我’我刚刚恢复。尝试轻松一点’当我等待最终结果时,这对我来说并不容易。你的身体看起来确实有点瘀伤,然后被殴打,所以我’难以置信的不耐烦地等待着,看看所有肿胀都消失了,瘀青消失了,一切看起来是什么样。但是如果我’老实说,我第一次见到自己,甚至肿胀肿胀…I cried. 霍克博士 changed my life, 和 for 那 I will be eternally grateful. If you’ve worked hard, 和 lost weight, 和 really want 那 body confidence back, I can’说的不够 妈妈改头换面 要么 减肥后紧肤。一世’d心跳再做一次。

不过,最好的部分是我的儿子。他’s so happy 那 mommy is feeling better, 和 often brings me teddy bears 要么 offers to share his fruit snacks. The fact 那 I’m happy makes happy, 和 I think all of us moms can learn from 那.
