Had them removed years ago. I was told to drink as much fluid as I could before their set time that you cant drink or eat anything.... that was midnight being the operation was something like 5-6 in the morning. He told me its a lot easier if you drink a lot so I did, pop water milkshake everything. Ok so I remember everything till they got to the count of 3, Well I was out like a light. when I came around I felt like I had a sore throat but was real groggy. so after a while they asked if I wanted ice cream or something to drink. I told them I wanted an order of french fries. They asked if I was kidding and I told them no ....thats what I want, so they brought me some and they were great. So in my opinion it was a piece of cake.....well maybe more an order of french fries. Do what they told me ......drink all the liquid you can before the operation.
I think you just need a little freon that should take care of it. I go in tomorrow for my first operation and im 48 i have a hernia in my stomach and get tired of pushing my guts back in. and yes i am a little nervous. maybe i will tell doc i just need some of that freon stuff.
