Why am I normal now that I have a surgery date?

Ihave found this site to be very helpful and informative. I posted here a few months ago when I had finally made my decision to have the hys. Many years of abnormal periods, bleeding for a week, clear a week and then bleeding again. Usually about 11 days out of the month with no blood. I have had some abnormal pap smears over the years...no cancer though. I have had lazor surgery on one occasion and cryo surgery on another due to abnormal paps.
BUT.....now that I have my surgery scheduled for Jan 31st all the sudden I am having normal 4-5 days periods, little to no cramping and no abnormal bleeding between periods.Basically, I am normal now... I do however feel there is a change in my hormones. I am experiencing some vaginal dryness but no hot flashes or any other symtom of menopause. My Dr. gave me premarin vaginal cream which has helped.
I have made all the preperations for this surgery as far as my work goes, insurance etc. I know in my heart and by looking at my past calendars that if I cancel the surgery because I am normal at the moment, all the problems will start up again. I just know I have gone through this for YEARS, what a pain in the rear to have blood all the time!!
I guess I need someone to tell me "DO IT", you wont be sorry! I have made the decision to keep my ovaries, I am 42 yrs old. I had an ultrasound and it showed them to be normal.
I am wondering if this "normalness" has happened to anyone else before a scheduled surgery. I guess my uterus heard the word HYSTERECTOMY and thought it better shape up.
Can someone just say to me.....go ahead, you are doing the right thing?

Hi there, crhjazzi!

You aren't the first member who has posted that, once surgery is scheduled, the issues contributing to the decision to have a hyst seem to lessen. I don't think I've ever read an explanation for that.

No one here can tell you if you made the right decision. If you are at all insecure about it, a second or third medical opinion might help...assuming you have not already gotten them.

It seems to me that most women posting here on the site are ultimately happy that they had the surgery. But there are others who regret it. It's impossible to be 100% certain ahead of time which group you will fall into.

I hope that you come to feel that you have made the right decision for you!

Many s and Best Wishes,

I can understand......Maybe your body did hear you!!!!!! (he-he)
I am sure you made the right decision though!!!! I am 35 and having a TAH due to endometriosis.......Even though I still get nervous, I know it is the right decision!!!!!! Hopefully we will be in with those who end up happy with our decision!!!!!!
See you on the other side!!!!!

Hi there !!

I wish I knew the answer to your question.

Here's what my gut instinct is, though. If you're not reasonably sure that you should have this surgery at the end of January (and you sound like you're not), why not postpone it for now? In the meantime, get another medical opinion. You can always have the surgery later if there's a need. Just a thought.

All I can do is speak for myself. I'm glad I had my surgery. Not jumping up and down and ecstatic, mind you, because I have had some issues since surgery that I didn't have before. But on balance, things are better for me than before my surgery. This is not the case for everyone, however. I would be so sad if you came back in a few months and said, "I wish I had never had this done" when things don't seem very severe for you now.

We're here for you no matter what you decide. to you.
