new here having op on march 1st

Hi . I am 28 and having a total hyster on march 1st (6 days). I am very nervous as I had a c-section 7 years ago that was full of complications and that is still fresh in my head. Is a hysterectomy simalar to a c-section. I have chose not to do HRT. Does anyone have any suggestions on what is best for hot flashes and night sweats? I would appreciate any advise I can get. Thanks so much!!!

Hi Seana,

This is a great site to get information from! Welcome!

I will be right with you on the 1st with a TAH as well (I'm 34)

There are days I feel I'm very ready and others I think NOOO!!

Regarding hormones-- Are you having your ovaries taken out

with the surgery? Mine are "supposed" to be left in. If that

ends up being the case I will not need HRT.

Talk to ya soon

I'm 31 and having everything but the kitchen sink removed. Ovaries, too, so my doctor told me that because of my age and such, HRT will make me feel a whole lot better, minimize symptoms and stabilize emotions. She feels very strongly about my taking them, so I'm going to follow her advise.

Talk to your doctor about it and see what he/she thinks to aid in your decision. I'm pretty sure there are natural suppliments you can take to help but I would ask the doc for recommendations.

I'm nervous too - but excited. Anticipating pain free days ahead (eventually!)

It is good to know I am not alone!!! I thought I was ready but as soon as they gave me the date of surgery my stomach fell to the ground!! And it is still there. It is going to be a very long 6 days!!! They are taking the overies and cervix. I have endometriosis very badly. I am hoping this will help as nothing else has. Thanks for the support.

I live in Illinois.
