Going To The Castle 8-8

I am 29, and first started when I was 9. I've been having problems since I was 16. My DR is new to me, and when he said I have a very large mass on my right ovary, I really wasn't surprised. (I had aggressive pre-cancer cells on my cervix when I was 23). Since I was a new patient, he only wanted to remove the cyst/ovary. I said all or nothing. I went back to my onc/gyn and she agreed with me. She called new DR and he now agrees too. I am sooo ready, but now am getting nervous. Oh, something else. My fiancee was in a VERY bad car wreck on thursday, not seriously hurt, but he has lots of stitches and messed up his back. Any suggestions on how we can help each other recover? This site is the best for anyone wanting more info. I have gotten so many helpful ideas for my recovery. Thanks!

First of all BEST wishes to you and your fiance's recoveries! You both will need to rest, rest,..and take things slowly. You might want to ask someone to come in and help..especially with BOTH of you down for a while. BEST of luck to you on your surgery...
we'll all be praying for you. Take care..let us know how you're doing, afterward.

Dgronauer,

Hi. Hopimg everything is well with both of you.
I am having my surgery on Aug 15th TVH keeping the ovaries, bladder and recetal repairs.

I look at both the pre/post op sites and they gave me some very useful information. I am writting all this info and giving it to my doctor before surgery and a copy to my husband (so he can make sure everything I want is done). Just want all the medication I need for Pain, etc..., when I need them and not be delayed.

The post site gave me info regarding the rectal recovery - donut pillow and other good stuff.

I hope this helps. Couters

Most hospitals and doctors can direct you to some sort of post operative home care or hospice.
Between friends/family/co-workers/church friends and the at home nursing (If needed) you should be okay.
REMEMBER>>>>>NEVER be afraid to ask for help!! Both you and your honey need rest, rest, rest and a bit of pampering.
Hire a housekeeper if need and make sure to take care of you!
Wishing you both the very best!!

Janet
