Hello again ladies,
My trachelectomy is booked for the 30th Sept! I will be admitted 29th Sept and I am currently first on the list so it will be a morning op.
I’ve reached that next hurdle now where I’m starting to feel a lot more positive and stable with knowing what is going to happen and what the (hopefully) positive outcome will be.
I have to say, as warned by EmJess, consultants are VERY matter of fact and they do say some scary things that personally I have decided to block out as I don’t want to focus on the ‘what ifs’ right now. I need to focus on this op and getting myself better. My macmillan nurse was incredible, she sat with me for a good hour going over what will happen in the op, what things I might come up against and how to deal with all of this. The amount of info she gave me was great.
So – the countdown is on! 18 days until the recovery process starts. I am in contact with EmJess and Pegasus84 who have had/are having the same op as me and I have to say it is amazing to have people around you who know exactly what you’re going through.
I found a quote by CS Lewis the other day which has pretty much got me through this week:
“There are far better things ahead than any we leave behind.”
I’ll leave that with you :)
