Lightbulb - I'm pre-op but wanting to fight nerves with planning! I'm pre-op but wanting to fight nerves with planning!

Due to a 3.5cm fibroid, I will be having a hysterectomy sometime in September. The current plan is to keep my ovaries...not sure about my cervix yet....I didn't even think about asking during my Dr visit...was slightly shocked to be honest. I am currently on Weight Watchers and have been doing great. I've been exercising. Mainly body weight exercises, line dancing and kickboxing.
But I'm super nervous. I think I'll feel more 'in control' if I can do some planning. A fellow WW'er referred me to this website so I am very hopeful.

Thanks for reading and any tips you can share :-)
