Getting Anxious

Hi everybody. I am new here and I am pretty nervous. I am scheduled to have a LAH on Feb. 2nd. I have chronic pelvic pain, lower back pain, anemia and heavy bleeding due to adenomyosis. I have been on every type of birth control pill and they didn't help. I chose not to take Lupron. I am 40 yrs. old and I have 4 children. I am hoping that I will feel good again after the surgery. I am tired of being tired and being in pain. As the date of the surgery approaches I am getting anxious. If anybody has any words of wisdom, I would love love to read them!!!

Hi Lynn,

It is very normal to be scared for any kind of Major surgery. I know I was and many other women are and were.
I also had Adenomyosis. I didn't know I did until the pathology report after my surgery.
Originally My surgery was to rid my cervix from dysplasia (pre cancer) I am 8 weeks post op and have had no real complications during ny hysterectomy or recovery. I do have hot flashes and I tire easy. I was tired before the surgery because of the heavy bleeding, but Im slowly getting better and better !
Keep coming here, it's been wonderful for me. The supprt and love you get here is hard to find anywhere else ! Best Wishes,

Hi String Bean. I really can't wait until it is all behind me. I feel better having a site like this to turn to. Even though I have a great support system, there is nothing like talking to people that really know what you are going through. Take care of yourself and I pray that you have a speedy recovery.

ME Too!!!!!

Me too!!!!!! I go to the castle Jan. 17 and I am getting more and more nervous everyday. I have said this before but... this site is truly a god send. I enjoy reading all the things from other women; it is very comforting. Also just knowing that I'm not alone. .

The surgery is easy, the recovery is what is a bit difficult! Take your pain meds every 4 to 6 hours, that helped me after surgery. Also be sure you eat a lot of fibrous foods to get your bowels moving regularly. I am 4 weeks tomorrow, and am feeling really great. Have the occasional pains, and swelly belly, but am doing really well. It will all go well for you ladies as well.

Sending lots of luck to you all!
