Pre-op for Re-op

Post by ShootingStar on 10th November 2009, 6:16 pm

Had my pre-op today and i feel totally happy with the hospital and the two nurses that will be caring for me post op, they were the ones that saw me today.

I felt fine on the way there, but when i arrived i dreaded going inside, i went in and was told to go and wait in the waiting room, there were a few others in there and i was wondering what they were there for and thinking to myself 'i bet they know i'm having a BA'

I was called in by two nurses and they introduced themselves as the two that would be caring for me on the day, one then said, 'ahh Laura,, we need to take extra care of you' and i felt quite special

The weight, blood pressure, blood test & health questionaire followed, (my blood pressure was high but i was anxious) and i was asked if i'd ever had any other ops, i explained, then i began to feel tightness in my chest and went very hot, her voice trailed off and a blackness closed in on me, i remember Mariajw telling me about my breathing when i feel anxious and i was thinking to myself 'concentrate on your breathing, concentrate on your breathing' and i felt better after a minute or two and then i signed something and the nurse noticed my hands shaking and i told her why i was scared and they were very kind and helpful, she then asked me if i would like to go and see the ward with them and they showed me where the theatre & recovery room was and even let me pick my bed on the ward for the day!! I feel alot better about knowing who i am going to see on the day and where i will be, they also gave me their names and told me to call them anytime if there is anything i want to ask, they were absolutely lovely.

I underestimated how scared i am, i did think i was going to pass out at one point and that was just the pre-op!!

I also paid today so am all ready to go, just need to see the Surgeon Monday for him to show me the implants and got though the op with me one last time and then that's me done until the day....so not long away!! x x x

hi babe dont really know all the inns and outs of whats happened but obviously youve had major complications and having a reop to correct. It must be so frightening to have to go through this procedure when its gone wrong previously. It sounds like the staff there were really reasurring for you, once this bit is over you can enjoy your new body.
You sound like a real strong women and i think your going to be soooo please with you new boobies

I'm really glad they were so nice to you (you deserve it) and that they put you mind at ease a little. I can understand why you are scared hun, but this time you will be properly cared for and you will be monitered carefully because of what happened before. Try and stay calm, propbably telling them about what you went through before and a mixture of nerves and anxiety caused your panic attack. But you wont have to go through that again. It won't be long now and you can put all this worry behind you and have a fab pair of boobs for Christmas. Just remember it's going to be ok this time and they sound lovely. You can do this SS. Your so brave.

Ah they sound lovely, I'm sure you are going to be in the very best of hands this time thats for sure. Sorry that you are so scared though. I know its completely different, but when I've had a skinful and I'm hugging the toilet hoping that my head will stop spinning and I will stop being sick, I think to myself, 'tomorrow this will be over and I wont feel like this'. Maybe thinking something similar will help when you feel like bolting for the door. You'll be ok, you've come this far, a few more steps and you'll have a new ba story to tell :huggy:

Sounds like you're in good hands this time SS. glad to hear you're being well looked after and cared for.. not just on the physical side, but emotionally too. xx

I'm a little lost like Tutti hun, sorry if I missed it whilst reading your blog, but are you having your re-op with a totally different company here in UK and now having to pay for this all over again?

Hey SS

Well done, hunni for doing the breathing thing. It can be really difficult to do this without a lot of practice, so you did really well.

Can't wait to see you again, we are going to have a great time before the op and I'm gonna make sure you're OK after the op. The nurses all sound lovely, so you're going to be fine. Less than two weeks left now, hunni.

Glad it went well hun, sounds like you will be very looked after and have nothing to worry about I learnt breathing techniques for my panic attacks and it does wonders, breathe in for 3 seconds hold for 3 seconds and exhale (through mouth) for 3 seconds
I'm so happy its finally all happening for you, its been a long time coming and you deserve the best hun, you really do. Onwards and upwards sister

Aw SS I'm so glad to hear your getting extra special treatment. Mariajw and Nads are right about the breathing. Your breath is yours and always with you and observing your breathing is a great way to centre yourself when anxious. Just think this time in 2 weeks..... :flower:

Hiya Hunni, i had surgery in Belgium in Dec 08 by a very bad surgeon, I had a large internal bleed post op (haematoma) and implant infection & how he dealt with them has left me permanently disfigured on one boob, I only have one implant now and that's a PIP, the NHS were going to cover the cost for my re-op but i decided to go private in the end and have both boobs re-done and this is where I am today, 11 days to go!! x x

Totally happy hun, the nurses said to me i was in very good hands with my surgeon and called him world class, they said they had 4 surgeons operate there but rated him the best so it helped ease my mind a bit more, i will be posting my story & pics very soon after i promise x x

This is what keeps me going hun, thinking that by christmas they will be ok and i will finally have two boobs again!! x x

Love the advice Sarah hunni, now that is something I am never going to forget!!! x x

Yes hun i had my initial surgery in Belgium with a butcher!! I sold my car to fund my re-op here in the UK x x

I am looking forward to seeing you too hun, the nurses know you are coming and said there are no canteen facilities in the hospital so you can fetch lunch and keep it in their fridge and also help yourself to hot drinks, i told them about you and they agreed you were definately the better option on the day due to your calming capabilities for me x x

This is fantastic, i don't remember how i done it so will bear this 3 second rule if it happens again, thanks hunni x x

Tonic28 wrote:......its a lovely hospital, quite small, new, personal and friendly.....bet u will have a very compfortable stay and some good old fashioned nursing care
Oh definately, the ward only had a few beds in it, it is very personal and i didn't feel intimidated by a hectic, busy hospital, it suits me perfectly x x

I don't feel very strong hunni i know that much, thanks for your lovely messages of support, you're always so positive x x

Although it's saddened me to know you've had to give up your car to pay for this, I'm also relieved to know that you aren't going back... Who did you decide to go with this time? Did they make any comment on your previous surgery?

I am going with a very lovely and experienced surgeon this time and he was appalled by my previous treatment and so was another 4 surgeons I have seen since the nightmare began. I will be posting the Surgeons details post op including naming the surgeon who did this to me in the first place because if any other girls come on here and search his name they will know to avoid the.........
