I think I have read every posting and reply on the Pre-op Hysterectomy Support Message Board! Thank you for all your knowledge and support!
I've already had my Pre-op visit to the Hospital. On the good advice of many of you, I have purchased my "granny panties," nightgowns, large sweatpants, and all the things that will hopefully get me through this.
As worried and scared as I am, your advice and experiences are so helpful. Good luck to those ladies whose surgeries are before mine.

Best Wishes For ALL Ladies in Waiting,
I did just what Missbehavior did, I read many post's pre-op & post-op, as the date came closer this site really kept me calmer. Don't forget to get a back rest pillow for the bed...it really helps. Also for when you come home purchase small bottles of water & quarts of milk..you won't be able to lift the gallon jugs . See you on the other side!

God Bless & 's

Princesses to be , good luck to you all and may each of you have a speedy recovery.
Wow Lori I would never have thought about the gallon of milk being too heavy, thanks for that tip.

Missbehavior...I too have been reading and learning a lot from these posts. I am very thankful for this site so we can help each other. My surgery is scheduled for Jan. 16th. Tomorrow, I will go for the 'granny panties' HA! I hope you will continue to let us know how you are doing. We've gotta stick together! Hugs
