Update on surgery

OK, I got a call from the pre-anesthesia nurse she wanted to go over over a few things and get a brief history on me. Basically, I arrive Tuesday at the hospital at 8:30 check in, surgery is 11:30 and I should be able to go home by 3ish. She stated to be prepared that they pump you full of gas and that is usually why people have some discomfort. Usually not from the surgery just the gas.(Great) She said walking will help relieve the gas pains, (I also assume farting right?) so she suggested when I get home to take some small walks and drink carbonated drinks (diet of course).

It was like do this, don't do that, do this, don't do that.  Finally I asked her "can I take a Xanax". She laughed and said yes I could. (Thank you God!).
I think this might be a Xanax weekend.  Seriously, I am ridiculously nervous. Sheesh...

I know you must be nervous, but it sounds like you are going to a great hospital that is professional and caring.You will get through this and wonder why you were so nervous to begin with! I hope someone can take care of you at home!! Best of Luck on the surgery!
