1 Week Before My Hysterectomy

Hi everyone. I am on the count down to my surgery. I have read so much about this, my Doctor has talked with me about this, and still I guess it is the not knowing, yet the knowing with what is about to take place. I am a 39 year old woman who is newly divorced after a 18 year marriage. I already have my children, who are 13 and 8. So for me, my hysterectomy is a very hearltfelt medical decision that we hope will help me in the future. I have mixed emotions and I pray that everything will turn out for the best.

1 Week Before My Hysterectomy

Hi Sonya!!!!! I am also from Ohio and I have an 8 yr. old dd!!!!! I don't know your exact situation, and I too am nervous (mine is on Jan. 12th) But I am sure after it is all said and done, we will feel much better after!!!! I have endometriosis, and am actually on my LAST period right now, and it is soooooo exciting to me. (probably kind of weird of me) I look forward to feeling better for myself, and for my family.......I tend to be grumpy and lazy from all the pain, and feel I should be doing alot more with my dd, but I just don't always feel up to it!!!!!!!!! So, my hope is that once this is all over, I will be a new woman!!!!
Best wishes to you!!!!!

Hi Barb.

For over the past year I have had cysts that are rupturing on my right ovary and have been in the hospital a number of times thinking it could of been anything from my appendix to my gallbladder. After many Ultra Sounds and trying different things, it is time to do the surgery. My periods are 10 to 12 days long with heavy bleeding and the pain is overwhelming. I will have mine done through the abdominal area. We know for sure the right ovary will be coming out. Please contact me so we can talk.

1 week also until my hysterectomy

Sonya and Barb:
I too am from Ohio and my hysterectomy is scheduled for next wednesday, the 4th. One part of me can't wait to have the surgery because I can not wait to feel better (endometreosis and adenomyosis) and to not be so grumpy to my family because I don't feel good. I have an 8 year old son who can now tell when "mommy don't feel good". The other part of me is scare because of the "unknown". The thing that worries me the most is how much pain am I going to be in. But, from talking to a lot of women who have had this surgery, everyone says that I will feel like a new women.
I'm sure our surgeries will all go fine!
