Clock is ticking-

Hello, I am new to hystersisters and very glad I found this website. I was searching the web for some information on hysterectomies and it totally amazed me, I didn't find one with anything positive to say about the whole experience. As if I weren't scared enough already, I was crying, calling my husband telling him I didn't think I could go through with it. Then I found hystersisters and I want to say "Thanks" to everyone for their positive attitudes and making me realize that this is not the end of my life but only the begining. Don't get me wrong, I am still scared to death because everyone is different and you simply don't know how you will react physically or mentally until afterwards. I think that is one of the scariest thing because this decision is permanent! I just turned 32 and have a 2 yr old daughter. I am scheduled for a total hysterectomy on Feb 4th. My mother had a hysterectormy approx 21 yrs ago and I still have those fears in the back of my head. We almost lost her due to excess bleeding during surgery. She had endometriosis and it had gotten so severe part of her intestine had to be taken out and "cleaned". I too suffer from endometriosis as well as fibroid that have grown considerably over the last year. My doctor also said I had a very "odd shaped uterus" whatever that meant. I reseached some of my options and basically all other medication would just be a bandaid for the problems and I would eventually have to have the hysterectomy anyway. It bothers me that I am slightly overweight and I worry that will effect and hender my healing time. Every thought both negitive and positive has entered by head over the past 2 weeks. I only hope and pray I have made the right decision to go through with this.

Welcome to the group! This is a great site for advice and support. I'm 31 and have two boys 7 & 9. I'm scheduled for a LSH with removal of at least one ovary 2/2. I probably have adenomyosis, cysts on the ovaries, and my uterus is tilted, flipped, and such too. They have told me it's like an "S" shape. My 2 c-sections and my tubual probably helped push me towards having to have this hyst. I considered the other options, even tried birth control to control my periods, and it didn't work. I agree with what you said, the other stuff would have just been a band aid.

From what I have learned here, it is normal to go through a whole range of crazy emotions. Yesterday, I was bawling for no reason, today I'm kind of wierdly calm. But that is all subject to change at any second! I have pre-op in a couple of hours, so I'm sure that will set me off. You just have to look at the positive which is how much better you will feel after it's all said and done.
