I don't know what to think

It's always strange to see all the "official" stuff that's written about us on orders, etc.

The first thing I'd do if I were you is CALL your doctor's office and set up a meeting with the doctor to dicuss all of this. I don't know if you have already had a pre-op meeting with the dr, but if you have, you need another one!

The doctor should explain EXACTLY what the surgical plan is, what work will be done, and also what the "backup" plan is, ie, if a TVH is not possible, will they do a TAH...

Yes, they can take the ovaries with vaginal. You will not menstruate...your period is when the uterus sheds its lining. No uterus, no period. The repair work sounds like it's to correct your incontinence and other bladder and/or rectal problems.

There is no need to try to figure this stuff out...just ASK. And keeping asking until you are 100% clear on what is happening. Be a good consumer...it's your body and you are entitled to full and complete disclosure.

Let us now what you find out!!!

Here's a bunch of s for you!

I always find it weird to read things like that....it makes me feel like it's not ME...just a patient.

Don't be afraid to ask the doctor ALL your questions. The more you know, the better you will feel about things. Knowledge is power...and NOT knowing is what makes us afraid.

Hang in there...we'll all be here to help every step of the way!
