We went through the normal check-in process with standard questions, BP check and
an ID band and
was taken back to an exam room.
Once into a hospital gown and
a sheet, I laid down on the table with my head elevated and my knees bent. The doctor arrived and peeled the foamy tape off my abdomen, which covered almost my whole left side of my tummy .. from just above my belly button down to my leg, from hip to midline and it felt as though my skin was coming with it.
