Thank you, Helena!

I am sure that they will have something that they can give you to wear, they must deal with this situation all the time.

 

I remember when I was sterilised many years ago, they gave me a big sanitary pad to wear as they said I might have some bleeding, which I did, in fact it brought on a period!!

 

Good luck tomorrow sending you hugs

Started period the day before surgery!

Hello!

Tomorrow I have surgery for clear margins and a full axilliary node removal.

I am already apprehensive about the lymph nodes removal, but my more pressing concern is that I started my  period this afternoon, and and expecting tomorrow to be my heaviest day - the op is in the morning.

 

What concerns me the most is the flimsy gown and paper knickers.

I'm sure I read somewhere that neither pads nor tampons are allowed in the theatre as they are not sterile?

 

Have any other ladies had to manage a period whilst having surgery?
