Re: Upcoming hysterectomy 8/11: crying

My husband is incredibly steadfast and consistent and amazing. But this is the first time I know he isn't quite getting it. I don't know how to explain what I am feeling. I'm just surprised by how scared and sad and overwhelmed I feel.

Re: Upcoming hysterectomy 8/11: crying

My DH did not get the emotional strain either. It is just such an intimate, emotional surgery unlike any other I had (I have had a few before this one).

Here is a article with an embedded website that may help:
Frustrated with Non-Supportive Family and Friends before Hysterectomy,

You are going to need help with cooking, cleaning, laundry, dishes, driving, etc. He will have to step up and take over household items. You will not be bedridden, but you will need to rest much. You will be able to do minor items around the house, but much will be left undone - like house cleaning.

He already does everything because I have fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue. He truly is one in a million. I adore him. This is the first time that I can't quite explain how I'm feeling. I don't know how to communicate it.
I am very thankful that I'm at menopause's door. I can't even imagine what young women go through! =(

Re: Upcoming hysterectomy 8/11: crying

I wasn't crying ahead of my surgery and woke up pretty calm and all through the preop stuff. But when they started walking me to the OR, I just started to cry. I remember thinking, hold it in hold it in, and I just couldn't.

The anesthesiologist called out for the nurse when we got into the OR. She took over and helped me on the table and started rubbing my shoulders and having me think of something pleasant, I can't even remember what. I fell asleep pretty quickly.

When I look back, I realize how normal it was to cry and I felt like the nurses had seen it a ton of times. I also think crying is such a gut reaction and usually helps me feel better, like a release.

Aside from all that, my surgery went much better than expected and all of my worries ahead of it were much worse than the actual recovery. I was really kind of in disbelief that I'd had major surgery and the body does an amazing job of healing itself. I was probably more emotional afterwards since I struggled a little with what to do all day. Find some shows, find a hobby, and rest up! I wish you well!

Re: Upcoming hysterectomy 8/11: crying

This is probably my last viewing of this site. I have learned a lot here, but feel that better descriptions of us to understand our expectations should be stated. I think that each of us should describe our overall health prior to surgery, our conditioning, and age.
I am 78 yrs old, had a severe prolapse for years. I am in good physical health and conditioning, have played tennis for decades. I also practice pilates.
My surgery was 6/30/20 and I am feeling great. I had NO pain right out of surgery, in fact, I wondered if it had even been done. Mine was a complete hysterectomy with both bladder and rectal repair. Only issue was gas and GasX has been my best friend. I think it is important for you all to hear from women who have had good results as well as the problems. I wish I had this done a long time ago but was dreading it like many of you. The only "drug" I took was ibupropen and didn't need that much either. Wishing you all well with your surgeries and hope your results can be as pleasing as mine.

Re: Upcoming hysterectomy 8/11: crying

I had a couple of anxiety attacks the week before my surgery, but I didn't cry until three days later. I was a little emotionally overwhelmed, I guess.

I hope you came through your surgery smoothly.
