Hi Lizzabee,

We are glad to hear that your appointment went well with your Dr.

Sounds like you are going to have a SAH (Subtotal Abdominal Hysterectomy). The surgery retains the cervix and ovaries, if you are a candidate. You will find several SAH ladies on Hyster Sisters at any given time. I am sure they will be able to help you with your specific questions.

Best wishes again,

Melanie, Thanks For Your Well Wishes. I Appreciate It. I Hope You Find Out About Your Date Today As Opposed To Tomorrow. The Waiting Is The Worst. I Just Got A Call From The Dr And Was Told I Was Rescheduled For The 16th As Opposed To The 9th. Another Week To Wait. Ugh!!! It Gives Me An Extra Week To Prepare. Always Try To Look On The Bright Side Of Things. Good Luck To You.

Thanks For The Info Yesterday On Which Types Of Hysts To Discuss With The Dr. I Did Just That. At First, Because It Was My Choice Of Which I Wanted, I Was Going For The Lsh. Because It Kept Both Ovaries And Cervix, And Because It Is Reported With The Least Amount Of Recovery Time. But When Discussing With The Dr There Are 5 Incisions To Heal As Opposed To One. And Also No Matter How Skilled The Surgeon There Is Always The Chance Of Nicking The Bowel Or Bladder With The Lap Instruments. I'd Prefer The Extra Weeks Of Recovery Time To The Possibility Of Months Of Repair Work For Nicked Organs. Again Thanks For The Info.

Hi Kris, Thanks for the note. I am STILL waiting. Ugh! This waiting is the absolute worst. I hope I have a little time to prepare as well. Maybe our surgeries will be around the same time... if so would you like to keep in touch? Best of luck to you. Melanie P.s. Happy New Year.

Hi Lizzabee,

I am glad you have decided on a surgery of our choice. With my LSH, I had 3 small incisions. I had a belly button incision ( for the laparoscope camera) and two small hip incisions. Some ladies I have read have 4 incisions with one near the pubic bone. I wonder what the 5th incision is.

From being on Hyster Sisters over a year, I have seen replies that show that ~all~ hyst types have a chance of nicking organs, not just laparoscopic surgery. In my research of laparoscopic surgery, it seems that the surgeon can get a better view since the surgery is projected on to a large t.v. monitor in the surgery room.

I think with a laparoscopic surgery ( LAVH, LSH, TLH), it is just important to be a ~good~ candidate for that type of hyst. For me, I had a text book recovery and since I was a candidate, a less invasive surgery was more desirable then having many weeks of recovery in post-op.

Best wishes again,
