Oh my Gosh!
I've seen once on here when a surgery was rescheduled, but I just did not think about it happening to me.
I was all set for surgery tomorrow (the 9th) and this morning I got a call: the Dr. has a emergency and I needed to be rescheduled.
He can't fit me in until the 21st now. The 21st! It seems like forever. I know it's not, but this feels like a physical blow as much as a mental one right now.
It's like stopping a freight train. Honestly, all the forms, the prep at home, the flex people that were called into work to replace me, the mental prep, my parents driving in from Texas to help, the vacation plans my siblings were arranging for when I had time off (now I'll be in the hospital for their visits),the EVERYTHING. I even had all the pre-op labs done. Now it's got to done all over again.
How many of you have had this happen? Is this common? What's up with Dr.'s and us being completely at their mercy? I mean, I feel so helpless. My insurance even has to foot the bill for 2 sets of labs.
I am okay, I think. I'm grateful for the extra time, I was fast running out of hours in the day to do some of the things I needed to finish. I just wish I hadn't overdone it so thoroughly this last week (like sitting on bleachers, like vacuuming and hanging photos and all the stuff I usually don't do so that I won't hurt), I've been hurting so bad that I was almost looking forward to surgery.
