OK, I've gone from a laproscopic BSO with possible TAH on next Monday with no overnight stay to a BSO, possible TAH, sling/Burch for cystocele and vag repair for rectocele on Tuesday - at least one night in the "castle"!
Great docs (gyn/onc suggested I see uro/gyn and get everything done at once - I had no idea that there were prolapses and that something could be done!) with great teams. And bless them for getting this done quickly so I just have one surgery....although it does make me wonder if I should plan on the TAH - even if it means an abdominal incision for sure (it's already a possibility).
However, with all the tests for the second doc, I have virtually no time to get things together for after surgery
I (due to uro/gyn repairs) won't be able to drive for 4 weeks or lift, push, etc. anything much for 12 weeks! Will have some help, but my DH, DD and puppy have no concept of what life will be like for a while!
Anyway, The Questions:
What do I need to have around the house for postop?
Has anyone had all of this done at once?
Do you think that adding the TAH for certain will be worse than if I wait on that? Current plan is for
to decide once he is in...
What do those of you who are on the other side of surgery think is most important to have done at home preop - so that I don't go crazy afterwards.
Hope this makes sense. Not much rest and (my last!) PMDD starting up! It is so helpful to read all of your posts - thanks very much to all...
