Tomorrow is your day!! I hope today is as relaxing as it can be for you. I thought, with both of my THR's, that the closer my surgery date was, the calmer I became. I wish that for you, today also.
See you soon on the recovery side! :yes:

Hi all x I was so upset x apparently they knew the day before but nobody was told. The surgeon came to see me and apologised. Even when I was leaving the nursing staff had still not been officially told. I've now got all that build up again

@Anniec19 I'm so sorry your surgery was cancelled and rescheduled. Unfortunately I know all too well how this feels, was sitting in pre-op, had my happy pill to take the edge off and they came in and said your surgeon was in an accident and surgery is cancelled. I was totally stunned and totally numb, didn't know what to do or think. If course I wanted my surgeon to be ok but just the build up and let down. I just have to look at it as I just was not meant to have the surgery that day. Ended up having it about two weeks later, doc had been checked out and able to operate and I came out with flying colors, his words not mine. We'll be thinking of you and keeping you in our prayers. :praying:

Best Wishes for today. Hopefully with the time difference, you're already in recovery with surgery in the rear view. With any luck they'll provide you with ice and manage your pain well. Can't wait to hear all about it once you're up to communicating. Wishing you comfort as you begin the journey!
