gclemons,

There are some on youtube.com. I found one for my Da Vinci assisted surgery. I will warn you, however, that some people don't really need to see exactly what is done. For me, it was interesting and informative, but I think it was also "icky" (for lack of a better word) and gave me some heightened fear and worries - I don't know - just made it a bit too real. Anyway, search youtube and you'll find them there.

Be careful when you watch it. That's what made me choose to have it done abdominally!!

I just watched a TAH using something called Harmonic Wave Cauterizing(sp?) ?. Can't remember the complete name. MY dh watched a bit of it and said it was interesting by gross..I agree. But with this they made the incision what looked like above the bellybutton. I think because the mass was so big and they wanted to look at the other organs like liver, ect while there. ugh

I AGREE, THINK TWICE BEFORE SEEING A VIDEO. I think it opens up a lot of the "what if's" that I am sure will not happen....

After my double hip replacements, someone I met at a doctor's office gave me a video of the procedure for one hip, made me want to faint...had I seen it first, I might have opted not to do it, glad I did, or I would have been in a wheelchair now..

Take care...

I don't plan to watch those videos until AFTER surgery, when I can't freak out about it!

I watched a couple of them. For me it answered some questions that I had about the procedure (mostly curiosity things, nothing big) and it also helped me know fully what was going to happen. It is important to me that I know exactly what is going on. It is a bit graphic, but looking at it from a medical standpoint, it was ok. My BF also insisted on watching it so that he was more aware of what was going to be happening to me as well. We were both glad to have seen it before hand. I'm going in tomorrow and feel much better since I was able to watch them.
