New and Thank You

I found this site either accidentally or by divine guidance yesterday. I'm a great big baby weenie chicken, and scheduled for a TAH/LSO on 5/1. I've never never been pregnant nor had so much as a stitch in my 49 years, and have been feeling quite terrified. God must be blessing every woman who has shared her experiences with the rest of us. I will continue to be scared until it's over, but the support shown here is wonderful. I would really appreciate a sister, because I only have brothers. I have some wonderful sisters-in-law, but none of them have been thru this. Thank you, everybody.

Hi Sis


So glad you found us. Having two wonderful biological sisters, I can tell you that there's nothing like a sister. Now you have a whole computer full of them!! Welcome to hystersisters.

We all find this spot by divine intervention. I know I was trying to decipher medical lingo at other sites and becoming frustrated until I ended up here. I haven't even been back to the others!

When you have time, browse through the post-op message board as well, to see what a wide range of experiences we all have.

I find myself crying (tears of joy) often while surfing through the message boards. It is so full of wonderful sisters with an abundance of love and understanding. No one seems judgemental, which makes it much easier to post any question at all.

So we'll be looking for your questions, your input and your opinions. I think lots of us are on this site off and on all day long. I know I am!

I'm relatively new to the site myself (end of March), but there is a wealth of valuable information here. And even better than all of the great info is the wonderful support and caring from our HysterSisters.

I also checked out a couple of other sites and message boards, but once I found HysterSisters, I never went back to any others. I've recommended this site to several ladies, and also suggested that my GYN refer his patients to this site. He said he would check it out and see what he thinks.

Best wishes with your surgery. And a great big from me.

Hey Sister

Welcome, Welcome, Welcome!!! I have one warning and it is called Addiction to Hystersisters. I have been happy and excited ever since I found this site. I know that you will find plenty of comfort. Like you, I don't have a sister only a brother and my sister-in-law is a lovely person but, she is much younger and has not experienced any of these problems.

Take care and God Bless You

Hello and welcome. I have no sisters or sister-in-laws, so this site is full of sisters for us. Read all you can and ask all the questions you can of us sisters and your doctor. We are all here to help you.

Good luck.
