Surgery coming in March - Feeling unprepared

on 1/7/15 10:00 am

I'm through HRRH.  I have an appt. with Dr. Glazer on Feb. 4.  My PATTS is Feb. 19 and my surgery is Mar. 10.  I'm suddenly feeling overwhelmed, and unprepared.

HELP!!! What do I do?  I have to go to my family Dr. to get her to fill out one form the surgeon's office gave me, as well as my work forms, I have to see my HR dept. to settle my time off... I need to make sure I have what I need in the house for after surgery.

I don't even know where to start.  Feeling very unsettled.  Could use some suggestions.

Don't overbuy foods for after surgery. I was warned, didn't think I had, and did anyway. Most of it got thrown out, lol. Good luck!

Don't over buy on anything.  Foods, protein powders (what you like now, you may not like later), clothes.

First thing you should do, is breath, then make a list of what needs to be done.  Then you can track it all and remember everything.  You have 2 months, you'll get it done, if you need appointments, call now to get them.

I am feeling the same and just received a call from HRRH with news that my surgery has been moved up to January 29th and I start opti on the 15th. 


I still have to see Dr. Glazer on the 14th..
