Pre-op Surprise!

I had my pre-op this afternoon for my Monday surgery. I wasn't at all nervous or anxious, but now it's Real, and I am getting a bit anxious.
At my appt. my DR went through everything with me step by step, and that was nice. I knew I would be having a VH, but to my surprise I'm having a LAVH!!! I also was informed that I would be losinging my cervix!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I wasn't expecting that, and I sat there kind of in shock.... I just nodded my head and said uh hu! Why would I need my cervix out too?? I have been diagnosed with adenomyosis. I also walked away with no blood work, which I was also surprised about, I've never left the office without labs done first. Anyhow today was full of surprises that I didn't expect, but I am very much looking forward to seeing the end!

Pre-op Surprise!

If your not comfortable w/ your Cervix being removed then pls discuss ths w/ your Surgeon. They can remove your Uterus via a Lap leaving the Cervix intact This is *your* body & only *you* will have to live w/the outcome You also have a say in what's being removed, w/o your consent nothing can. I urge you to discuss, more in-depth, to his reasoning behind removing it If it is only your Uterus that is diseased then like you stated, why have it removed??

Good Luck w/everything ((Al))..pls keep us posted....((((hugs))))
