Scared out of my mind

Ok, thank you!
So according to the abbreviations there, I will be having a SAH-BSO. I think I got it right...everything except the cervix is going.

(OM Gosh! I just did a smilie on my own and I noticed when I previewed this that even the 'standard' smilie has a CROWN here! That's so cute! This is a GREAT place!)

Scared out of my mind

I am scheduled for a vaginal hysterectomy, bladder tuck and bladder sling on Jan. 23rd and I am also starting to become extremely nervous but I know it has to be done , I think I am more worried about the after effects than anything. I also am in the midst of personal problems at home, my husband of 28 years and I are more than likely filing for divorce after my recovery so I have that added stress. If anyone else has experienced a similar situation I would certainly like some advice, I am only 44, we were married at 16 and 17 so this has been my life. I will say that it is more me than him that wants out but still it will be a big change , that and my hysterectomy. I feel like I'm going crazy sometimes!!!!! Any advice anyone???

Scared out of my mind

Hi, Jilly. Sounds like we are in the same boat! My surgery is on the 25th, and I am in the freaking out stage, too. Like you, I am going into the surgery with the intention of it being done vaginally. But, according to my OB, since I have had a c-section recently, he may have to go in abdominally instead. So, I won't know until I wake up, either. I am one of those people who likes to have everything planned, so it is really bothering me to not know for sure what is going on. I am incredibly lucky in that I have a great support system, but at the same time, it wears on me that I am going to have to ask for so much help. I am sure everyone struggles with this stuff, and as my surgery date gets closer, I am just getting more emotional and more stressed out.

You know what? Just like all of the amazing women here, we will get through this, and while it may not always be fun, we will be just fine. We can do it, we will do it, and everything is going to be OK.

Hang in there!!!! You will do just great, I know it!

Dear Jilly,
I am also very new, no surgery date even, but I am also very scared. I know you will do fine and even if they aren't able to do it vaginally that you will have a good outcome. Just remember that you are always going to get great support here, I can already see that and I just joined!! I will add you to my prayers.

Best of luck,
