Waiting for surgery date

Hi all,

I saw the female OB/GYN today and she is surprised I haven't already had a hyst. She was very nice and took a lot of time with me for questions. As it turns out, her and my OB/GYN know each other. She said I certainly have enough reasons to justify having a hyst. I have been telling myself that I'm not in enough pain, often enough to justify it. Is this normal to justify away the reason to have a hyst done?

When I told my dr I wanted to go ahead with the hyst, he started asking about other 'tests'. When I asked him what other tests, he mentioned ablation (is that a test?) that he had told me probably wouldn't help much since he believes I have adenomyosis and my fibroids are mostly inside my uterine wall.

I reminded him that he said it probably wouldn't help much, but told him if he thinks there are other things we should do before doing a hyst, then let's do them. He started to suggest that I take medicine to stop my periods for a couple months to see if I am pain and pressure free during that time and that would justify a hyst resolving my problems. I must have not been making a happy face about it, because in mid sentence, he said, I think we are just biding our time so let's just do it.

I agreed. I told him I thought I would end up there anyhow and now there is a chance we can do a LAVH and if the adeno and/or fibroids get much bigger, we'll definitely have to do a TAH.

Second Dr. told me to be sure that my asthma is under control and have my regular Dr. involved to be sure my lungs are up to the surgery at that time because that is my biggest risk. She also said there is something they can do to lessen the risk of prolapse later, closing up something in the space where the uterus was and to mention my concern to my Dr. I forgot and will on my pre-op appt. April 26.

I will post when I get my date.

Guess that makes me a LIW?

Yes, this makes it official. You are a real now.
It sounds like you are working with some good doctors too. That is great and so comforting.
Keep reading and posting while you wait for your big date. I found the more I knew the better I felt.
Take care.
