LAVH/TVT Scheduled Thurs 2/28

Hi Everyone,

I'm scheduled for a LAVH with TVT Thursday the 28th. Both doctors (one for each procedure - they're partners, too) are confident that they can do everything vaginally. I should be back to work in about three weeks.

I am just writing to say a couple of things. 1. When the nurse calls to schedule your pre-op tests and asks you if you have questions, if you are afraid your questions might seem silly, don't. I asked my nurse my about my innermost fear - the dreaded automatic blood pressure machine after surgery. After telling her of my bad experience previously, She assured me they must have used the wrong cuff on me and she would mark my chart with the appropriate information. she also told me what to expect every step of the way, and suddenly my fears all vanished. I felt like a huge weight had been lifted from my shoulders. TALK TO YOUR NURSE! That's what she's there for.
2. These boards are the best. Just reading them has helped me immensely.

When I was a little girl, nurses were "mean," telling me shots wouldn't hurt and to look away. WE'VE COME A LONG WAY, BABY ... they never treat us like that anymore (and understand that I have to watch).

Nurses ... and even receptionists at the doctor's offices ... have been soooo wonderful in answering all my insurance-company complaints and all my "silly" questions about the procedure I'd forgotten to ask the doctor.

Thank you for helping us all visualize an experience like yours, it relieves alot of the tension (but, of course, you knew that)
: Enjoy your crown, you deserve it.
