January 24th I decided to have the hysterectomy instead
of leep. How can I overcome the nightmares of waking up to the fear of having myself cut in two.

Well, there was no alternative to hyst for me, so once I made the decision, I just decided to concentrate on the positive outcome that I wanted to have. That worked for me. Make sure that you trust your surgeon, don't be afraid to ask any question that occurs to you. I will be keeping a good thought for you.

thank you for your reply. I do trust my ob, haven't met
the surgeon, I quess I will meet him at my pr-op appt on 2/28. A specialist recommended leep for severe
dyslplasia, my ob knowing my 10 yr history spoke strongly in favor of the hyst, he would hate to see me in 2 yrs in a worse situation. Just alot or apprehension did I make the right decision. I am single, self reliant,
and a demanding career. So much pressure, I feel like the world is crashing in on me. I've never been in such a situation of so much unknown, leaving my health of the care of strangers.

Yes, I know it is tough, to put yourself into other people's hands and trust that all will be well. I was lucky that my GYN was also my surgeon, I've been going to her for many years, and I know she has a great reputation in my community. But there are others on the team, the anesthesiologist, the nurses, you will be meeting these people just shortly before this big surgery. I took comfort in the fact that this is one of my most common surgeries performed, and I believe most outcomes are good. Whenever I felt nervous about it, I would just take some slow, deep breaths and think about how great it was going to be without my killer periods, and that gave me the resolve to proceed.

Trust yourself

Trust your instincts, sweetie!!!! Go with what your heart tells you is best for YOU!

You're not alone in being scared -- this is major surgery. But, take comfort in knowing all your sisters are there in spirit, and if we all made it through, so will you!!!!

I didn't have any real choice regarding the surgery since mine was due to cancer. I was totally worried about the surgery itself, but everything went fine. The docs, nurses, etc. will take very good care of you!!!! They all want you to do well, too!
