Getting a Tooth Pulled?!@#!!!!

Oh I thought I heard everything until last night. I was on the phone with my "Best" friend who was whining about something, or other (as usual), and I was feeling kind of nervous since my surgery is approaching (4/22), so when she took a breath I broke in to remind her that my sugery was coming soon, just thinking that I had heard enough about her, and needed a little support here. Her response was "Don't worry, you'll be fine. It's just like getting a tooth pulled". I thought I would collapse. She is a really good friend but ignorant. I tied up the conversation quickly and headed down the hall to tell my DH (MD, PCP-not ob/gyn). He could not believe her insensitivity, and said, she will probably need a hyst eventually, and well then maybe she will understand. Bottom line, if anyone out there has experienced insensitivity from those around you, it is not uncommon. If they have not worn your shoes, they just may not understand. I want to thank all of you for the information and compassion you have given me. I come here for information and advice, but mostly comfort, which ALL of you have given Unconditionally.
s and All Good Wishes,
Surg Date 4/22/02 TAH/BSO-due to Fibroids, enlarged uterus, cysts on ovaries. Scheduled for a "Bikini Cut"

Hi, Sharon,

I think it is hard for other people to understand. They haven't lived through the bleeding, pain, and other symptoms. Try to explain "flooding" to someone who hasn't experienced it. They just won't get it, and they won't understand how it affects a woman's life.

Good luck with your surgery, and thank goodness for Hystersisters.

Best wishes,
