Don't worry, the surgery is not that bad. I had a TAH/BSO on 12-15, and thought it would be a lot worse than it's been. Just remember not to overdo things, take your meds, and walk.

Hey, me too belacani. Mine was LAVH unfortunately.

It will be over before you know it chpwyf. It is most stressful before, and reading everyone's stories, was for me anyway. I was calm before the surgery. The worst, is the first few days after. You are prepared otherwise from this site. Good luck to you!

thanks, Im glad your doing well.. I have had surgery before (gall bladder) and I can remember how difficult it was to get in and out of bed etc. from that. I did ask my Dr if he was going to start putting the HRT into my IV in the recover room. lol

I had a gall bladder surgery 16 years ago and figured this would be similar. It's been much easier, and I'm 16 years older. Had my appendix removed last week as well - one less thing to go wrong.

I know it seems easy to say but just try to forget and enjoy Christmas. i was so busy just before my op- sorting out work and so on I hardly had time to think about it. It's better in a way.

Hi chpwyf!
I had LAVH 12-6-05 and I feel better now than before I went in for surgery.
I love Christmas as well, I wanted to have everything decorated inside and out before I went into the hosp.
When I came home it really made me feel good to see my house all decked out in the Holiday spirit!
Wishing you All the Best,
Laurie

Thank you everyone for the positive thoughts. I know I will get through this, I am just being a big baby... I will continue to be reading all of your advice and my prayers are with all of you.

Best of luck on your surgery & happy holidays too! Hardest thing here (TAH/BSO) was/is not over-doing and not tripping over my own feet. I could walk fine before surgery... why such a clutz afterward I have no idea. I love to chop firewood, so that's been a hard one... but it'll wait--same goes for the tractor. (8 days to freedom... )

Just a thought Patcat, but my opinion is that ANY time somebody is cutting holes in your body...of any size...it's unfortunate... even if you get to sleep through it.

Hey Patcat,
Just read your post and I want to say "DON'T WORRY." Really, don't. Before you know it, it will be done and you will be feeling SO much better. Be patient with yourself and take it one day at a time. Go stock your frige with some interesting gourmet ice cream and consider getting HBO, at least temporarily (a splurge in my house). Stock up on Frosted Mini Wheats, lol. See you on the post op board!
