    Evening ladies,

    Sam – good to hear you’re feeling a little better and hope all goes well for you – enjoy your Chinese and try to relax a little – this time tomorrow you’ll be sitting on the comfy Done 🛋 xx

    Daphne – if things dont settle down it would maybe be better to get checked but hopefully you won’t need to – keep moving around and drink plenty water as it could just be wind 💨 also try to keep taking regular pain relief as it really does help especially during the first couple of weeks xx

    I’d also like to wish sooty good luck for tomorrow – you posted elsewhere and I know you are extremely nervous but hoping that you feel a little better now and it all goes ahead as planned – we are all thinking of you sooty and wish you well xx

    Keep resting ladies. Xx

    Hello lovely ladies,
    @sam_m187 very sorry you had the nasty sick bug! Great news you are now better & all geared up for tomorrow. Enjoy your Chinese, hopefully you manage to get some rest before your early start tomorrow. I’ll be thinking of you & to Sooty too, land softly & safely on the done couch.
    @daphne917 hoping the pain is just wind & it dissipates very soon.

    Hello everyone, I hope you are all doing well this evening.
    I went to see my haematologist today. When I booked this appointment in November, I think she though I would have had my op by now! I went today to have my blood checked as I have polycythemia (cause as yet unknown) and the consultant had said I may have needed to have a pint (or maybe more) taken out before surgery to thin my blood to avoid clots/ stroke etc. Good news is that my results have come down fractionally, but enough to mean that this doesn’t have to happen, and that I will be a bit safer for surgery.
    I’m kind of moving through my days as if it is not real, so I’m sure I’m going to come down to Earth with a bit of a bump next week. I’m heartened to hear from the ladies on the done couch that the anticipation is far worse than the event, but I still can’t imagine how I will get through it all. I know I will, and I have a lot of support, especially from you lovely ladies, but it’s still a bit daunting.

    Hugs to all xx

    Good evening ladies – just want to send love and best wishes to @sam_m187 and @sooty for tomorrow – will be thinking of you both – the other ‘done’ ladies are keeping your spaces warm on the Done couch!

    Thank you everyone for keeping us updated on your progress – you’re all doing so well – it must be so hard being a patient patient – the foggy phase sounds so frustrating, so pleased it’s starting to clear.

    Work is keeping me very distracted this week which is much needed. I just want to get on that done couch…leave room for me ladies!

    Love Nichola x

    Morning lovely February ladies,
    Thinking of @sam_m187 and @sooty today.
    I’ve had the date for my pre op assessment today, it’s on 20th, a week before my op. Any tips?
    Thanks for all the updates on how you are all doing, it’s so encouraging to see how you are all progressing. Such a warm and encouraging group. Thank you

    Evening ladies.
    Still a little fuzzy here but officially on the done couch. A little pain, more of a dull ache so increasing my morphine next time round, and so tired. I’m told everything went as well as it could, so that’s good. I’ll update more when I can keep my eyes open.

    Really happy to hear that you’ve joined us on the done couch @sam_m187 and that it went well. Get plenty of rest and look forward to catching up in the next few days.

    Welcome @katie78, anything you want to ask then please do so, this site has been a lifeline for me. What type of surgery are you having or dont you know?

    @mrs_c I would advise writing any questions down to take with you to your pre-op so that you dont forget anything, hope that helps.

    Xx

    Morning ladies,

    Welcome @katie78 and @mrs_c. Hope youre both good.

    I had a restful night. Blood pressure was a little low so returned to oxygen for the night but off again this morning. Catheter removed first thing. On the whole im doing ok, but feeling the pain more this morning than yest and very exhausted.

    Theres talk of me getting home this evening but actually given how I felt waking up I’m not sure how comfortable I am with that yet. Will see how today goes.

    Hope all you ladies are resting up well. I now understand how much you need it! And for the ladies waiting, i can also agree, the waiting is the worst part!

    Love to you all. Youre up next Nichola!

    S xx
