Two weeks pre surgery I had my pre op visit. My ps discussed the surgery again and told me about possible complications which could occur. Nerve damage, scarring, asymmetry, hematoma .......and more.
I really did not want to hear any of the above although from my own research I have read about all of these problems.
The days leading up to my surgery were the worst. I just wanted to get it over and done with.
Had to be at the facility by 7.30. I got undressed, relaxed in bed and waited for my ps to arrive. He asked whether I was nervous....NO....not at all, just wanted to get started. He did the markings and then I was given a tablet to take. I think it must have been something to make me drowsy as I recall later getting up to go to the mirror as I wanted to take pics of my face with the markings only to here the nurse scream....be careful ....as I had a drip in and it could have fallen over. I don't remember having it put it....she took a pic or two for me.
Later she told me to come to the theatre next door and lay on the table. I was a little out of it then as I do not remember much after that. During the procedure I remember my doctor telling me twice to look to the right as I must have been turning my head.
