Hi Kim,
I'm waiting as well - my TAH is scheduled for December 13th too!
It seems so far away to me, yet I am obsessed with planning for it. How are you coping with the waiting?

Re: Anyone having surgery on 12/13? So close and yet so far away?

Hi, nice to meet you! Well, I am trying to get the house in order, my mom is here so she will help with the kids and my hubby will take a few days off. I should be doing more, I will need to think about that and make sure I am ready. I live in CT so the freakish storm we had at the end of Oct helped some of the time pass. And, the holidays will help too. It seemed so far away but all of a sudden I am realising it is a lot closer then I might realize.

I have been waiting forever, since Sept as I had to get a date that worked with both the urologist (I am getting a sling and checked for IC) and my specialist so Dec 13th it is.

What are you doing? When is your pre op? Did you get the little book with the questions to ask? I need to make sure I have mine in order. How are you having yours done? Not sure if that was in there. And, wondering what your issues are? I have endo and adenomyosis and I hope and pray for a "new life" after the surgery. =)

You can find those ladies having surgery on the same day as yourself by using the Calendar link towards the top right of every page. Following surgery, in the Post-Op Support forum there will be a dedicated Recovery Progress Report thread for those who share your surgery week.

We hope you'll enjoy using Friends Without Faces for social chatter only and we'll look for you in the Pre-Op Forum if you've any support needs or questions prior to surgery.

Best wishes!

Nice to meet you too!!

You've been waiting since September? It must have seemed so far away and now it's right around the corner!!

What little book do you have? I don't have my pre-op appointment booked yet, I'm hoping its in the next week or two (I guess it would have to be!).

I have suffered issues for years, 2 surgeries to remove cysts from my ovaries that has basically left me with 1/2 of one that isn't really functioning. I have fibroids, my periods are all over the place and I've had 3 "pre-cancer" cervix issues. The doctor finally said enough is enough and decided it was time to take it all out and give me a normal life.

I totally understand the prayer for the new life after surgery! We will both be in a much better place by the new year (fingers crossed!).

I am scheduled for the 12th and I am completely obsessing with trying to get the house straight and all of my holiday decorating and baking done over the next two weeks.
