Upcoming hysterectomy 9/24

I am scheduled to have my hysterectomy for 9/24 . I am nervous mainly because I am younger than average and have 2 young kids at home. I am being forced to have the hysterectomy because of the Essure I had place 2 years ago. I am allergic to it and my body is basically freaking out and it took us this long to figure out that was the cause. Hoping all goes smoothly. Any tips for prep I will take them. Or what to pack etc..

Hi theoillady to HysterSisters!

I am so glad you found this site!

I am so sorry this has happened to you and you have to have a hysterectomy. You may want to start by looking at our pre-op page.

Here are 10 Essentials to Pack for Your Hysterectomy and 10 Tips for Preparing for Your Hysterectomy.

What I found most helpful were:
Meals in the freezer that you can just pop in the microwave
Get easy food for breakfasts and lunches
Get loose fitting clothing (I lived in sweats and old shorts for 12 weeks)
Recovery corner with blankets and pillows

Recovery from this surgery takes time - think weeks and not days. You will need help with your little ones. You will need help around the house with cooking, cleaning, dishes, laundry, shopping, driving, etc. You will need to take time off work - how long depends on how fast your recover and your work duties. But again, think weeks and not days.

Just know that you are not alone in this. We are here for you, and will be by your side.

Hello theoillady,

I'm new here also and I'm so sorry you have to go through this, this is a great site, I have learned so much in this short amount of time. Im scheduled for my LAVH on October 8th. Mine would have been scheduled the same day as yours but my class reunion is Sept 25th and 26th.
