Also is there anything helpful to have with me at the hospital other than books, ipod etc to keep me occupied. The surgeon said I will be in for 4 days or so, but I keep reading about peopke in for over a week. My only hospital stays before were for my c sections and although the reason was good I really hated being in there.
I could use some prayers, chickens, positive thoughts (whatever you got ) that the surgery goes according to plan and they get all the cancer out and I don't end up with a permanent bag. Thanks!
