Doctor's appointment follow up

Went to appointment screaming and kicking. Dr. did the biopsy, will get the results in about a week. Have to go for an ultrasound on the 17th. He did say that my uterus didn't feel heavy, so it is possible there is no problem, but the biopsy will tell the tale. If there is no melignancy I will still probably have the surgery since there are other problems that need fixing (bladder, etc.) Don't want to, but am tired of dribbling. Will wait until after Christmas for that. Thanks to all of you for being so persistant. Wolf

Surgery Scheduled

I went and had the biopsy done. It came back as containing tissue consistent with being a polyp. No cancer! Had an ultrasound done yesterday. Something strange about ovaries. Dr. was not sure what it is. Does not think it serious, but wants to make sure. He recommended removing both of them and the polyp. Since I also have bladder problems and want to have this repaired I decided that since I have to have some surgery I might as well go all the way. TAH + scheduled for January 5, 2004.
I'm scared to death, but have made up my mind to have it done.

All right Wolf!!

Aren't you glad that you had the test done? It's one thing to hope that there's nothing wrong, but there's nothing like actually having it confirmed by the DR! I'll continue to pray that the ovaries are ok too.

The surgery sounds scary, I know (we all know that on this site!) but believe me, anticipation is much worse than the actual event. At least that's how it was for me. And hopefully it will be for you too!

Keep us informed! We're all with you!

Good going Wolf! Glad to learn the biopsy results indicated no cancer. I know the surgery sounds scary, it was my first and I thought I would never get through it. Regrettably when things need to be checked in this area, surgery often is the only definitive way; however, as you keep hearing on this board, the waiting really is worse than the operation itself. We're all behind you. Please try to have a good holiday and keep us posted.

Thanks Peggysue !
All of you have convinced me that it is the best thing to do.I've never had surgery before though I have sat through and helped my husband get over quad-drupal bypass surgery and a bowel resection. I could tell it was no picnic. He did very well ,and if he can take it so can I.

Right now I have a miserable head cold and that is keeping my mind occupied. I hope it will be gone by the time the 5th. rolls around.

Merry Christmas to All!

Glad you're doing it! And remember, everyone is different. So although your DH may not have had the easiest time with surgery, it doesn't mean that your hysterectomy will be so bad. Think of it as a really positive thing that you're doing for your health--which it is! After the first maybe 36 hrs of normal post-op discomfort, I have to say that I never really felt bad. Just tired at times, but if you pace yourself you can get through it!

Go for it!
