Talked to doc...

It had been suggested to me to get ahold of doc before surgery and ask all the questions I have, but there was no way I would get in before surgery (02/20/2001) as there is a 1-2 month wait at my docs.....so I called and left a message. Guess what, he called me back the next day! Luckily I had my list with me (I had been carrying it around everywhere and adding to it) and was ready to ask the questions. I felt kinda dumb, but he told me to take my time and he will answer all of my questions, even told me that there are no dumb questions! What a sweet heart! Anyway, I feel much better now and think I am ready for it, but still very nervouse, having weird dreams and whatnot....but I am ready. Thanks for listening!

Dear Peggi

Sounds like you have a special doctor to call and talk with you and even say "there are no dumb questions." My doctor gave me her e-mail address so I could ask her any question at any time.

Talk about weird dreams boy mine were downright crazy!!!

I had a TAH on 1/22/01 for fib, endo, removal of one ovary and bladder suspension. I have had a great recovery so far and my only wish is that I didn't do this 5 or 6 years ago. I feel better at 17 days post op than I did before surgery - I am just tired and sore but so happy I did this.

Take care and my best advice is to totally relax before the surgery. Wishing you a great surgery and recovery.

Dear Peggi;
I too have a great doctor who calls me back and answers any and all questions that i might have. Thand God! because i sure do have alot of them. My surgery is scheduled for 2/19/01 and I am having a LAVH (hopefully) too! How long did your doc say that you would be in the hospital? I am curious about this because everyone seems to be different....thanks and good luck!!!

Pre-op today

Hi LIWs!
Had my pre-op appointment (am also scheduled for Feb 19)and my doctor told me that I would be having a LAVH (instead of TAH). I'll be going in early Monday morning (6AM -YUK) and he said I'll be going home no later than Tuesday afternoon. (That's if everything goes OK, and I'm hoping it will!) So, hopefully you'll get to go home then too! I'll keep my fingers crossed for you ladies that all goes well.
See you at the castle!

PEGGI AND SUSAN;
GOOD LUCK TO BOTH OF YOU! I AM SURE THAT ALL WILL BE WELL. I THOUGHT THAT WHEN MY DOC SAID POSSIBLY I WILL GET OUT THE NEXT DAY, HE WAS JUST TRYING TO CALM ME DOWN! ITS SO REASSURING TO HEAR THAT OTHER DOCS DO THE SAME THING. I HOPE ALL GOES WELL WITH THE TWO OF YOU AND LOOK FORWARD TO HEARING FROM YOU WHEN WE ARE ON THE OTHER SIDE!
BEST WISHES AND LOVE
LINNIE :ANGEL
