This morning, Ladyfingers asked me if I was getting nervous about my upcoming surgery. jeesh, what is she, my mother...the way she reads my mind like that, and over a telephone line t'boot!
"Yup, I am. That's my next blog post"
Honestly, I intended for this to be the next bit.
I have had two laparoscopic surgeries in the past nine months, and have felt no worse for the wear afterward. What I mean by that is: I don't think that the emotional and physical stress of the surgeries had any affect on my MS symptoms.
Prior to the first surgery, the anesthesiologist wanted me to be aware that I may experience a worsened level of my MS symptoms, following surgery. But when researching the subject, I have read that most people with MS can tolerate standard anesthetic without risk. I wonder if this is the difference between the risk of the drug versus the risk of the physical ordeal?
Either way, I'm a bit nervous. When I had the two other surgeries, I was on Rebif. Now, I'm not. Without the powerful Rebif in my system, I am at greater risk for a relapse.
