4 week first post op appt w/surgeon what do i ask?

Hi Princesses, My first appt with the surgeon is tomorrow and i am not sure what to bring up. I know to tell him about pain or bleeding, but does the surgeon (not an
OB) care what menopause symtoms i am having? I want to go natural HRT or BHRT. I think all he would care about is that i am healing correctly with no infection.

Hi sruendo,
If you click on the checkpoints label it might give you some ideas on what to ask the dr. at the point that you are at. I would ask him about the hrt or not question now. My dr. was the same way the only thing he cared about was my incision healing(like he was proud of his work or something) granted, I am glad that he did a good job but...there is more to my recovery than that! Anyway, if he doesn't seem to respond to your questions just ask them again until he does. You will do fine!

Yep -- I'd ask everything you can think of. Your surgeon may or may not know the answers, but he/she should be able to point you to someone who can help you.

I can relate to the "looking and the handiwork" thing, too -- but that came from the plastic surgeon. My gyn surgeon was very helpful (and the nurses were even better ).
