surgery in two days soo scared

I'm just very scared and no one around me seems to understand why. They tell me everything will be fine and not to worry, but I can't help worrying.

Scared, I understand

Just know that you are being thought about. I know, I am scared too and do not even know what my fate is yet.

There are many of your sisters that have been through it. Lean on us. We are here for you.

Only people that have the same fate understand why you are scared.

Thinking of you and praying that you find braveness through it all.

surgery in two days soo scared

I had a TVH on 12/1/03. It is hard to believe that five months have passed since the surgery. I can remember being scared like you. I had so many questions and it really did seem like no one did understand.
I do hope everything will go well for you. Just try not to worry too much. God will take of you.
The surgery was the easiest part for me, it was the recovery that was hard. I also had a posterior repair. I had some problems from that. Just make sure you take it slow, and get plenty of rest.
I hope everything will go as planned. Take care.

surgery in two days soo scared

I too am scared, I go in on Thursday 5/13. I don't know if it is that I am scared or if I am afraid of what might be. I am making myself not think of that. We know we will be in pain, but we are built to endure more pain than our counterparts. I know it will really stink for time, but I can't wait till everything that brought me to this point is over. It is the waiting that gets you. Try to think of the positives, be a pollyanna. There is always something good in every situation. My grandmother always told me that which pains us makes us stronger and god never gives us more than we can handle.

Best of luck to you, you and so many will be in my thoughts and prayers during this tough points in our lives. Be positive, have faith and take a deep breath.

Okay to be scared

Isn't this site the best!?! When no one else seems to really understand (either under-reacts or over-reacts), we've got this place to go to. I just had my surgery 05/04/2004 --- I was scared to have the surgery but more scared to not have surgery. Just focus on you. The day before, I made sure the bedroom was comfy, the travel bag was packed, got a shampoo/haircut, and just in general tried to put it out of my mind.

Know that you're going to have a few rough days, but hey... that's what the pain-killers are for (I never really found the pain unbearable --- just uncomfortable). Take it easy, and listen to your body (not your fears). And keep in touch with this site --- it's a sanity saver!

Take care girl!!

yes scared!

I believe it's the fear of the unknown.... what if, what if, what if?

I have a hospital phobia which sure doesn't help! I spoke to the anesthetist today, asked a million questions, do I feel better? Not really!

When it's over and I'm recovering I'll feel better, but til then shhhhhhh.

What trouble did u have with your posterior repair i'm having one?

We are NOT alone, a lot of us are scared, worried, terrified - huuuuuugs and kind thoughts I understand, let's worry together?

surgery in two days soo scared

I know how you feel suzzy13. I am trying not to let the panic set in too.

Isn't it great that we have this site and each other to share our feelings and ask questions?

Only we sisters can truly know what we are going through with waiting. Of course so does the Lord. My DH is very good with understanding but others act like this is no big deal. My DF keeps talking about going camping in a week or two and just doesn't get it. No one but my sisters here seem to get that my life is on hold now. So you can rest assured we understand.

Keep busy and think positive. I am going to wear myself out with cleaning closets and bathrooms to take the edge off.

I have a wild flower garden and was just out working a little in it too. That was really uplifting!!

Take care, I will be thinking of you,

Thank you all so much for your support. I've tried to keep busy today but it's always in the back of my mind. I know that the hardest part is the waiting, I've had this schedules since January. It is so nice to come here and read all of the messages and to know that everyone cares so much. This time tomorrow it will be over and I'll be thinking why did I worry so much.

surgery in two days soo scared

I am in the same boat as you--my surgey is tuesday, and my last day at work is this Friday. I am so scared I cannot think of anything else--I am lucky to be able to remember to brush my teeth! So-don't even ask me what my middle name is, because I am likely to answer "hysterectomy". I am less scared for myself, than others that I am in charge of daily. In addition to my own children, I have the 142 that I have in class every day! I am a teacher, and did not intend to tell my kids until the last moment. However, I had to take off half a day yesterday to do some pre-op things, and my sub , who will be my sub starting Monday, for the last 9 days of school told my kids. Needless to say, I had a flurry of questions to answer today--13 year old boys do not even know what a uterus is, let alone why you might have it taken out. I had composed a parent letter, which is to go home tomorrow, but I fielded such questions today such as, " Why do you want to take out the place that makes babies?" "don't you want to have more kids?" "I thought you like kids"...etc,etc...I had no choice but to be brutally honest, and if it was too much information, then I am sorry. Of course, I did not go into detail about the bleeding, etc...just explained that I had been dealing with a lot of pain. and could not do it any longer.

Then, I emailed my youngest son's teacher, explained things to her...I am very worried about him because in the younger grades, all of the homework, etc has a strong parental component--I know my husband can do it, but it has always been something we do together. I am afraid of his world going topsy=turvy. I was gratified to find that she had spoken to him alone ( as well as emailing me back--it is only the 2nd grade) She told my son to call her at home if he needed anything, or was unprepared for anything, and she would help him. He told me this when he got home today, and all I could do was cry and thank God for Elementary School Teachers.
My oldest son is in the 10th grade, and I am less worried about him--he is so very independent, and will be doing so much to help me later, but that 8 year old--well..mamas worry...

And I am scared...scared something may happen and I may leave my 2 boys motherless--oh, the guilt! The FEAR!!!HELP!!!Anybody know anyone who has died from this? I am frightened for my boys. The pain is nothing compared to the fear of leaving them without a mother.
