3 days to go

Hello! I finally got my surgery date. It's March 11 - just 3 days away! I have been a nervous wreck! I am 30 and having a BSO hopefully with a lap. My doctor gave me some Xanax to take to help me calm down. I guess it's working; I slept a little last night. I would love to have your prayers. I go today for the pre-op work up at the hospital. I even dread that. I am glad to be a member of a group with this kind of support. Thanks!!

P.S. I just thought I would tell you that my login name is not Princess Susan b/c of this website. It has been my nickname for about 10 years given to me by my father-in-law. I didn't even know that I would be called a punctured princess on Monday until I read the book last weekend. What a coincidence, huh? I even have a cute pink robe with a crown on the front and princess on the back.

P.P. S. I would love to hear from someone who had their ovaries removed with a lap. I know what to expect if my dr. has to cut me open, but not really what to expect in recovery after a lap. Any input would be great.

Hi Princess Susan!
I'm sorry I really have no answers to your questions. I'm not sure if my ovaries will be removed or not (hopefully not) but was told that if they needed to be it would be laproscopic. My obgyn said that the recovery isn't too bad.....whatever that means!

Best of luck to you! I hope all goes smoothely

I am post op 8 weeks today and it was done Lap. I had my overies and everything removed. It was not nearly as bad as I had thought not much pain. Take the pain meds they offer you they help. The recovery has been good. I feel great now. Am taking Premarin for HRT and it relieves all my symptoms. I am now able to return back to work which is quite pyhysical and it does not bother me.
