One more day and we need positive thoughts!

Hello,
My surgery is scheduled for Thursday, Jan 5th. It will be a TAH, removing both overies. I have endometriosis and fibroids. I have struggled with this decision for about three years now and I think this is the best decision for me at this time in my life. I have finally made peace with my decision and what it means for my body.

I am 46 years old, married to a wonderful man for 27 years! and we have a 22-year-old daughter. My husband is with me all the way - he will be taking at least a week off from work to be there for me. However, he is struggling with some things (i.e., issues with the anesthia). We will talk to the anesthiaologist about our concerns.

We need all the reassurance we can get to help us know that things will be OK. My husband is the type of person that worries way more than he should and I feel like he is expecting the worse. I am trying really hard to keep a positive attitude and I hope it will make things easier for me!

Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers on Thursday morning!

Hi Southern Belle!

Tell that worried hubby of yours that I had the same surgery as you're going to have, and I came through with flying colors! It was "textbook!"

You may want to click on "For Men'" in the lavender column the left side of this page, ninth from the top, to see if you think it contains information that might help settle down his nerves.

Best Wishes for a successful surgery and uneventful recovery!

s,

Thanks for the kind words. My husband actually found this site for me and he says that it has been really helpful for him to read the comments from the ladies that have had successful surgeries. I am glad we have a site like this so I can talk with someone about what I am experiencing. My doctor actually called us back to his office today as he could feel from my pre-op office visit that my husband was uneasy and may still have questions. I also had my pre-op visit with the anesthesiologist today. My husband was there also and I think he may be feeling better about some of his concerns.
