I was just told I have to have a hystorectomy and I can't beleive the gambit of emotions involved. I have a million questions and no answers. I don't have the bleeding just the pain and a fibriod that is growing like crazy. This is really scary. Natalieb

Hi sister,
News like that is never fun to hear--just remember that most women who are told that they "have to have a hysterectomy" are not in life threatening situations. So if you fall into that catigory--take a deep and explore all of your options. I hope this sight will be a good source of information for you!

If you're like me, you'll alternate between feeling ok with this idea and being scared to death. The ladies on this site have been wonderful and it makes me feel more confident, even the scary stories make feel better because I know that even if people had problems, they made it thru and are doing ok. That way I know that if I run into problems, they will work out. Do lots of reading, ask lots of questions and then trust in your doctor's skill and God's protection.

Good Luck!

I can understand your hesitancy. Spend time reading the post op board and you can see the issues on the other side. I am surprised at how fast I recovered. The first 3 days post op were hard but everyday since then has been better. I tried to get back to alittle exercise everyday. Walking. Then rest. Listen to your body, it'll tell you when you're doing too much. Good luck, knowledge is power.

Well it seems that one minute I am fine with having surgery and the next I am making these insane lists in my head. I just know the world as I know it, is going to fall apart without me to run it. This could very well be gods way of showing this control freak, she isn't in control. I have learned so much just in the last couple of days from you gals. Thanks,

Natalie -- I had pretty much the same situation. Went to the doctor, came out and told my husband, "I have to have a hysterctomy!" It wasn't expected, but I too had fibroids that were growing quickly (from 2, then suddenly 6, one the size of a grapefruit!) I think I scheduled surgery for the next month. The surgery wasn't as bad as I had expected, and I'm 5 months on the other side of it now!

One week and counting

Well, I am one week out and I have heard and read every story out there. I guess my biggest fear is that my family won't take care of me. I am the one in the house full of men, five boys and their dad, that takes care of everything and everyone, or at least I beleive I am.
Deep down, I know it will be okay, it is just the waiting that is making me nuts. Swandiver, did you keep your ovaries? I have my preop on Wednesday and will have a better idea of what I am going to keep and what is going. Too many questions, not enough answers.
