new here - LAVH to be done 3/29/02

This is all new to me!! I was told two days ago that I should have a hyst. for prolonged bleeding (weeks!) that even an emergency D&C didn't take care of. I'm scheduled a week from tomorrow and dh and I will see the dr. this Tues. to ask questions and hear more about the surgery. What questions did you ask your dr. about hyst. and/or LAVH? Please reply soon. Thanks for any info.

Hi, Sue - Shelly's given you the link you'll want. I just wanted to add to ask about the type of anesthesia that will be used - there are several options, and each has pros and cons. An anesthesiologist at the hospital can give you lots of information about that.

Also, if you have more questions after your preop, don't hesitate to call the doctor's office. I called a number of times. And read things on this web site, and ask us questions, too.

Good luck - you'll do fine and feel better soon!
