Pre-Op testing… Check!

January 19, 2009

Booked  a semi-provate room (2 beds only and free TV), received procedure & hospital info from the nurse, medical history was taken by doctor, blood taken by nurse, ECG by weird lady, chest x-ray by nice lady, and got the download from the anesthetist. That all took about 4 hours.

Apparently I will be in ICU for the night of the surgery, then wheeled in a snazzy wheel chair to the ward. Before I leave ICU they remove all tubes and wonderfulness… including a wire that will be in the incision and feeding into a machine reading the pressure in my head. Who knew these things even existed? My turban of bandages will also be gone by the time I get to the ward.

    ICU is the best place to be after surgery. The care is awesome and they have every piece of equipment necessary to help you along the road to recovery. You will be the sexiest lady on the ward. How long will you have to say after the surgery?
