Any May sisters out there?

I am now scheduled for May 23rd for LAVH, bladder repair and cystoscopy. Am anxious to get this whole thing behind me as I decided to do this back in October, but I feel like Clark Griswold setting of on a vacation!

Anyone else out there for May and how are you going to make the time seemingly go faster?

Hi there!! I am scheduled for LAVH on May 9. I'm going crazy waiting! I know there's a lot that I need to do but it seems too early to start doing those things. I wish it was sooner!!

I'm scheduled for May 4th and am counting the days while hoping I get bumped up. May seems soooo far away.

We;ll have to help each other get through these weeks. If you have any suggestions for getting through, let me know and I'll do likewise!

Hello May Ladies,
I am scheduled for May 9. At times it seems like an eternity and then way too soon (how can I get anything done and be prepared?).
So for the time being I am just spending lots of evenings with friends. If I am anxious or stir crazy, I call someone until someone is home and free for a few hours. Weather is getting nicer. I'll be able to ride on my motorcycle - best medicine I have.

I am going in May 17th and it does seem like too long to bear the pain but then again I am terrified so maybe by the time my day gets here I'll have calmed down. I'm gonna try to get my house in order (I have 3 kids 7, 13 & 17) HA HA HA I had to just say the house in order part because that is just so funny with my family - we don't know what order is. Anyway hope everyone's surgery goes well.

My gynecologist recommended a total hysterectomy and I am looking at May if I decide to do it. I am absolutely terrified! I had planned on scheduling it today while in the office for a follow-up appointment after having a D&C and exploratory lap, but ended up walking out without doing so. I have fibroids inside my uterus, several outside of the uterus, cysts on both ovaries and endo. I am feeling very confused right now and don't know what to do.

May 22nd for me, right after the long weekend.

I still work full time, and am generally busy...the day will get here soon enough.

My mom is coming over on the 28th so we can do the "donkey work" cleaning (vacuuming out window ledges, etc), and again on the 5th to help prepare for my Bye Bye Period party on the 6th!

I hope I feel well enough soon enough after surgery to sort and scan and burn my big yellow plastic bin of photos!

I can't wait til this 'football' is gone. I look at my favourite skirt and am so looking forward to wearing it again!

May 29th for me.

I have lots to do at work, so that will keep me busy. Also, I plan to get lots of running in, since I won't be able to do it for awhile after the surgery. But I think my biggest goal for the month is weaning myself off of caffeine, since I won't be able to take the gas immediately after surgery and I get wicked withdrawl headaches!

I'm also planning and shopping for clothes, books, and other items to stave off the boredom of my recovery (I'm restless and HATE to sit still). I think I'm going to bring work home with me to do once all of my helpers leave and I'm still stuck on the couch.
