Do they still do TAH and bladder sling if you are on your period? Mine started today, and checking the calendar, and yep, Jan. 19th I'll have started again... which is my surgery date. I want it done, out, over with, so it certainly doesn't bother me! Is that bad or gross?

Not usually a problem

Kelco-
Check out the pre-op articles. There is one on menstruating prior to surgery. It states that this is rarely an issue that cancels the surgery. I had my pre-op yesterday, I told my gyno that I was bleeding, and she didn't bat an eyelash (my surgery is this Thursday). I would say "Don't worry about it!" but check with your doc to make sure. The way I look at it, a lot of us have problems with continuous bleeding. If the surgeons had to try to schedule around our bleeding we would NEVER get our hysterectomies!!!

Hang in there!

My period started the day before my surgery. It was not a problem.

I was hardly ever without same bleeding and so it was no surprise to go into hospital with my period. I was aksed to keep a pad in place right to the last minute. Everyone was very matter of fact about it.
Good luck!

No problem.

My dr and I have decided to try to suppress my periods with BCP's until my surgery (one because I hate them and two to build up my blood). I was thinking about going off of them the week before surgery but then that would probably be a terrible period so why do that? As long as she is okay with it, so am I

Think of it this way it will be your LAST period **woohoo**.

My period came a week early which was two days before my surgery. The doc and the rest of the staff at the castle didn't think a thing of it. They joked that it wasn't fair but at least it was my last one.

I started my final period about four hours before my scheduled surgery. When I was taken into the operating room, I told my doctor that I had started, and he just said, "No problem!"
