    You will be fine.....whatever the outcome of the surgery is..take it as a positive and deal with it. Life is to short to sweat the small stuff...Keep the positive attitude, helps a lot in the healing process....Good Luck Bud, Clift

    Surgery
    Like most of us here we have been where you are at. Your surgery will go fine and that will be one more step to healing. Good luck tomorrow and let us know when you can how you are doing. Remember to walk, walk, walk afterwards as it will speed up the healing process. You might hurt doing it, but it really does make you feel better. And rest when your body tells you too. I'll be thinking of you.

    With a good surgeon, operation is a breeze. I had some problems with mine so it lasted 6 1/2 hours but I was out of it so i never knew till told after I woke up but I trusted my doctor, as scared as I was. Think positively ,don 't ever give in or give up.....You'll do fine...Steve

    Good luck
    Good luck to you! I focused on my favorite thing that I liked to do and was determined that I was going to get back to doing it as soon as possible after my surgery. I asked my surgeon one or two days after my resection, when could I get on the riding lawn mower. Keep in mind I had woke up with an ostomy, a drain, and a mid line incision. I had no idea ahead of time I would have to have my ostomy.
