Hi, just wanted to introduce myself. I am 34y/o set for hyster on 11/25. I have Adenomyosis and have been having problems since 1999. My OB/GYN is doing a robotic hyster....has anyone had one done? How did it go? I have read a lot from doctors on this type of surgery but I find it is always more helpful to get information from the ones on the receiving end of things. LOL
I am in constant pain now, although it is normally just a "there" kind of pain with the horrific pain that comes through from time to time, sometimes lasting an hour or so, sometimes a day or so, and sometimes longer...I never know until it stops. I work full time and that in itself is challenging. I have a decision daily - today am I in pain and level headed or do I take a pain pill, get rid of the pain, and not be so lucid at work....needless to say normally I opt to deal with the pain as long as I can and if I am lucky, I wait until I get home, eat dinner with the family, then take the pain pill and go to bed, praying I won't be up all night. Rolling over in bed can be a real painful adventure now and some nights I am so swollen that I have to get up several times to go to the bathroom. It is a nightmare that I can't wait to be over with.
Part of me though, even with all of the pain and problems is nervous and scared. I have had my tubes tied for ten years, so this doesn't seem like a sane thought, but this is so PERMENANT. What if something goes wrong? What if they find more than Adenomyosis when they go in? How am I going to feel after this is over?
Anyway, LOL, I went on and on and on, and for that I am sorry....I just haven't had anywhere or anyone to share with about all I am feeling. I have been so worried that I was going to upset my family, I try to put a brave face on and just "deal" with it. Thanks so much for listening. My God Bless each one of you.
