So far I seem to be the lucky one here. My DR and I decided to go ahead with the TAH day before yesterday and my surgery is scheduled for May 4th, just under 3 weeks. I'm so glad, too. This way I don't have too much time to worry.

HIya Alison

9 months, thats a bummer! I Have to admit, here in Suffolk, the waiting list is actually 18 months long!, I was lucky enough to pushed forward as my symptoms are so extreme, so now I just have to sit and wait!

I had my byopsies done on April 7th and we scheduled the Hyster then. Mine is going to be on April 29th. So my wait was only about 3 weeks.

I'm in NC also.

My Dr asked me if I wanted it immediately or if I had a time better for my schedule. I asked him what he suggested. This was mid March and he said by mid April. Well, my work asked that I not have it until after mid May. How selfish of them!! That's another story! lol

So when the appt person called and had a April date, I had to ask her if I could put it off. So, May 24th is the day.

To answer your question, it depends on your Dr's schedule & the hospitals. According the my Dr., I could have had mine in a little over a week from the decision.

Good luck! I hope you get a date soon!
