Surgery on the 12th

Hi WJ,
Welcome to the site. Alot of helpful ladies here, and information.
It is normal to be nervous. I was nervous with the Doctor appointment to set the date. Actually I was doing a bit better after the appointment, but, still nervous. Just try to keep busy. Don't wear your self out with house cleaning. You do need some rest before you have surgery. It does make a big difference in the recovery.

My surgery was 3-4-02, Severe Endometriosis, heavy bleeding, anemia, and no life.

I find it so nice, we can ask any question in here. I find it more helpful than some doctors.

Good luck with the surgery.

Me Too

My surgery is 4/10 and I am scared to death. I know that alot of women have gone through this before but I never have so I guess that is why I'm nervous. I have read many of the princess stories and I was wondering if anyone could give me a few pointers on what to take to te hospital and what I will need when I get home.


for me

I understand what you are going through. I am scheduled for TAH on 5/14. I have a while to wait. I had d&c last wed. I will be praying for you on 4/12. Am anxious to know how things go and any ideas that you may have to pass on to all of us still in waiting.

Surgery on the 12th


I found this thread through the calendar. It feels better knowing others will be going through this at the same time as me!

Gina, your date is the same as mine! (the 10th). I recently found some info that you had been looking for (about what to bring, etc.) in the helpful hints and tips section of this site. It can be found by using the forum jump pull down menu.

Well, I just thought I would share that. I am getting very nervous, but trying to keep busy and not think too much about it.

WJ, I will be thinking of you on the 12th! God bless!
