anyone else losing it??

i am losing my mind. day in and day out i am on my computer looking up any and everything about my upcoming lavh/bso. i think i have done more harm to my self....reading all the stories and totally freakin my self out....
i know everyone is not alike but oh my....some of the stories have scared me so bad.
has any one else done this to them selfs?

also i do have a few questions...
are the cuts the same (4 little cuts) on a lavh as with a bso...
and does it make a difference when done together?

is there other pain relief they can get you beside morphin...i don't want to feel sick.

my dh wants me to come home after my surgery but my parents want me with them...i don't know what i am going to do...i want to be in both places.

i feel like i am in a tunnel with no light at the end!!!!!

Wow it's great you have such adoring DH and parents that want to take care of you after your surgery. I am jealous!

I am having a PAH. I have had 2 c-sections in the past vertically not horizontally so that would be attractive yet again! I on the other hand haven't really looked up any of the info about the surgery. I learned way too much for my taste on the c-section front. I'd rather be knocked out and told I pulled through with flying colors. Leave me in the dark! I more or less freak out about the trivial things around me. Halloween is in one week! I only have 1 out of 4 with a costume! The other is too old and only wanted a "boo" shirt. Anyway, I am more worried about having everything ready and what will happen post than during!

I guess we all have our own freaking out in our own ways!
Take care!

I did a little too much "looking and reading" initially, reading some horror stories did not help me any at all! So, I decided to stick with this Pre-op board and get encouragement rather than the other.

I wish I had a DH (ok, only sometimes do I wish that! LOL) and there is no way I would go to my parents house (in fact they do not have any extra beds in the house, they got rid of them when the last of us 4 girls left home)

I will be going home to my kids, who will do their best to help. However I also have some great friends that said they can come help, or take the kids for me. I am just playing that by ear now.

I am right at 24 hours from my surgery time... keeping busy, that is the key for me.

Good luck!

I too got "too much info" before my surgery. The only thing that made me feel better was the confidence I had in my Doctor. He told me to look up info on the internet, which I did. I steered clear of the websites that were completely negative against hyster., in any situation. They have been performing LAVH for over a decade now-they started on gall bladder operations.
Enjoy the pampering by your DH & parents! I too am lucky to have a DH & 2 kids who too up the slack at home. I am 42, and both of my parents have passed away years ago. You are very lucky to have your parents around.
I hope all goes well for you, I will keep you in my prayers! Good Luck!
