still waiting....

Hi there,
I am so happy to have found this site. It has really helped me with my pre op jitters. I am having a TAH/BSO with bladder repair some time at the end of month still waiting for a date from doc.
I am so nervous about the upcoming surgery. I have read several posts on this site and most of you have answered most of my questions. My dr says my surgery will take approx. 3 hours because of all the things they have to do in there and they have also excused me from work until my surgery is complete and then 4-6 weeks after.. My question is has anyone had burning in the bladder and I have been checked and do not have a uti. or bladder infection.. but its almost like bladder spasms. I am a little worried because my bladder is actually in the vaginal opening. Dr doesn't seem to concerned but I don/t know what to think. I was just hoping someone could relate and give me some of that great advice I have been reading about.
Thank you so much for being there for all of us..

As an ER nurse who frequently caths female patients, I can tell you that having the opening of the urethra at the opening of the vagina is not all that uncommon.

Good luck with your surgery. I am also having a TAH/BSO (BSO I think, today. May be different tomorrow :confuse: ) with Birch (bladder suspension) 5/20. I know what you mean about pre op jitters, I just wish I didn't have over two months to wait!

You will find lots of support here. I know I have. There is so much to learn and this is the place to do it.

hi caren,
thanks for your reply.. I called the drs ofc today and they told me that they would be calling me in the next day or two to let me know when my date will be.. I really hate waiting.. I had another question for you all.. I have a burning sensation now in the upper part of the abdomen on left side. Its really hard to describe,but it comes and it goes.. it is a really weird feeling. I dont know what this could be.. cramps? I don't think I have experienced this kind of cramp before.. thanks for listening just a little nervous about all this I guess...

thanks again
