Calming a Scared Husband before Hysterectomy

From the Pre-Op Hysterectomy Articles List

Calm husband before hysterectomyHow do I stop my husband from freaking out about my surgery? I tell him I'll be okay, but he is still worrying. What can I tell him that might help?

It is very normal for those we love to worry about us, especially when it relates to our health. Plus, it's scary being in a situation where we have very little actual control. It is hard to watch someone you know be sick and then have the additional pain of a surgery and a possibly lengthy healing and recovery process.

In fact, how often have you watched someone you love struggle and wish you could take their place for them? It's all about love, and, in this case, your husband's devotion to you.

First, we recommend sending him to the Mister HysterSisters website. Further, we have the "Mister HysterSisters Guide to Hysterectomy" (for the Kindle, iTunes, and PDF) which provides great insight and help for your husband and other family members. You can also help him understand what you are going through by taking him with you to your doctor appointments and allowing him to be a part of the process. Allow him to ask the doctor questions about your surgery and recovery.

Encourage him to read through your Hysterectomy Checkpoints. Print the checkpoints out for him or order the HysterSisters free booklet. Having information in print that explains what you can do and what you can't do during recovery will help him. It will also help him understand how he can help you with chores around the house and encourage you to rest and heal when you need an additional nap.

Be sure to include him along the way and allow him to help you. Soon he will see you through the healing process and feeling better. He's a keeper!
