Why am I so impatient?

I have finally decided to go ahead with a hysterectomy after over a year of actively pursuing alternative relief of heavy bleeding/anemia/fibroids and many years before that of ignoring it. I've been on Lupron for 3 months now (4th shot tomorrow) which has the bleeding/pain mostly under control. I don't have horrible side effects from it - mainly hot flashes now and then, some crankiness and inability to concentrate at work. I don't see the surgeon until the end of April and don't have any idea how soon after that I will be scheduled for surgery. It seems like forever! I don't know why I can't just enjoy the time I have now which is relatively pain and blood free. I just can't stop running scenarios through my head - what will happen in the surgeon's office? what should I ask? what type of surgery will she recommend? when will the surgery be scheduled for? when can I plan my summer vacation? I feel like I'm so hyper-focused on this and can't just stop thinking about it for a minute. Any suggestions (other than wine - that doesn't work) to get my mind off it?

Re: Why am I so impatient?

The more you know the better off you will be later. Don't sweat it. keep researching and keep asking questions. There is so much I learned from hystersisters. I would have been lost without it. You only have a few more weeks before you see your doctor, so now is the time to research all alternatives. Even if you don't want an alternative the research will be valuable in letting you know you made the right decision to choose surgery.You'll also want to research different surgery options so when your doctor starts talking about things you'll be informed and know what to choose. research things like keeping or losing cervix and ovaries and stuff like that too before you see your doctor late April.It's very possible once you see surgeon you may get scheduled very quickly. It took me 8 days to get on the schedule. See, really your not being too hyper-focused. Your doing this the smart way! You'll have less anxiety later if you educate yourself now. This surgery is a big deal, so you need to learn all you can now!

Thanks ~ I am all alternatived-out at this point. I am trying to learn as much as I can about the different types of surgeries, though. It's great to be able to read about everyone's experiences. How did yours go?

I know how you feel! I'm all ready to go just waiting for the hospital to ring for the date. I'm so on edge and I jump every time the phone rings! Don't have any advice just some hugs and a hang in there baby

Re: Why am I so impatient?

I'm on Day 5 post op. My surgery went well, no complications so exactly as planned.Recovery is different every day.Don't start researching recovery issues on here too much until you have a surgery date and are satisfied with your decision or you'll freak out and want to chicken out. lol Recovery is tough, but will be so worth it to eventually be able to live a normal pain free life!!Good luck to you!!
