I need advice!! I had emergency surgery 5 days ago and the doc today said i can't go into the water in mexico either pool or ocean.. We are supposed to leave on the 19th.. I'm gonna cry.

What do I do. We have 40 guests coming. Too much of a hastle to reschedule. I'm thinking of going (but I spent all this money to go diving and play in the water)

Or do I cancel?

What will happen if you go in the water? Did he say?

You will be really covered up for the dive though right? So should that not be okay?

I'd say make the best of it. There are plenty of things to do and not get in the water. If your surgery was a female problem related then did you Dr. say it was ok to get your feet wet? I agree it would suck, but I think you can still have an amazing time.

in playa del carmen there will be a lot of fun things to do out of the water. You can still lay on the beach & lay by the pool. There are awesome things to do in the jungle. Zip lines, ride horses on the beach, xcaret, tulum, etc.

I definitely wouldn't cancel. You will still find ways to have fun outside of the water. It sucks, but don't let you ruin your whole trip.

I agree with everyone. If you really can not go in the water at all, then just make the best of it. Do not cancel, you will not be happy about that. Just go and smile and do all the other things they have, there are a lot of things to do besides go in the water.

 

I hope you are better from your surgery and it was not anything too serious.

How many people are coming with you? Will you cancelling allow them to also cancel or will some people end up on a vacation that they had planned around you, without you. If that is the case then I think you go, have fun, and enjoy yourself in other ways not water related. If you cancelling will not effect anyone else, then it couldn't hurt to move your trip to a date that you can enjoy everything you want to do. Now having said all that, I truly hope you are okay, and feel well, I will be sending positive thoughts your way.

The most important part is getting married, so do not cancel. Go, smile, and enjoy yourself. Not getting in the water may be upsetting, but not getting married will definitely be worse. Plus, your guests that are coming have spent money and probably taken vacation time from work, and to cancel because of the inability to get in the water, would totally not be fair. Not even thinking about how your groom may feel.

I agree! Also I think you should tell your doctor about your plans and see what she/he says about it. Maybe by a certain date you can go in. But either way i don't think you should cancel. There are a lot of fun things you can do instead! To be honest you may not even have THAT much time to spend in the water anyway. I know when we had our wedding I only went into the water twice in 5 days!

But it sounds like th most important thing is that you are OK! Are you feeling well?

Thanks for all the advise!! I'm going to cancel our last 6 nights at our honeymoon hotel.. We were staying there just to dive.. I have been diving for years and Brian just got certified and dosen't want to dive without me.. Maybe we can take a trip just him and I in Feb or something...

 

My "female surgery" incisions won't heal for 6 weeks total and long periods in the water slow healing and re- open wounds and tons of bacteria in mexico.

 

After I calmed down a little I feel OK about going and having a great time with the kids and family- there will still be a ton to do. We will be at teh wedding hotel for 1 week...

 

Thanks!!

 

FYI: I still havent done welcome letter, OOT bag iron on's, vows, sand ceremony stuff, pretty much everything.. too many drugs cloud my head sad.gif

My 8 year old is my bridesmaid so - no help :)

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
