Things that make us go hmmmm....

Isn't it interesting the way our brains work? I've been thinking...this many days to my pre-op, this many more days of work, this many days until my surgery. Then today I get the email from Hystersisters saying, we noticed your surgery date is coming up and they sent me a pre-op checklist. Now I just don't know how to feel! Any words of wisdom?

My TAH is scheduled for Monday, and, weird as this sounds, I'm excited!

I have an enormous fibroid. It comes up to my belly button! After a long time of misery with it, I am overjoyed to be having it removed.

Sure, I have some jitters, but come Monday afternoon, all the waiting will be over. The same for you, a week later. Won't it be great not to have this on your mind anymore?

Good luck to you!

My TVH is also scheduled for May 1st and I got the check list email too. I have been very excited and anxious about my hyst. knowing that the pain and bleeding will stop. Last night I got very emotional with my DH. I made the decision 10 years ago after my youngest son was born not to have anymore kids. I had a tubal and was fine with that. I have 2 sons and have always wanted a little girl for me (my sons want to be with Dad all the time). Last night I got so upset. I told DH that this is final, I will never have a daughter. Neither one of us want anymore children and I have been fine with this for 10 years. I guess it is just my emotions going crazy. You will be fine and the emotions are normal. Hope you have a uneventful surgery and recovery (me too).

Thanks sisters! I know you are right. I've been looking forward to this for awhile now. Well, not looking forward to it like a tropical vacation But looking forward to it as in no more pain, no more bleeding, etc. My kids are grown, I have no intention of having more children, but there is also a finality to all this and I really didn't expect some of the emotions that are now getting me. But I know that soon this will all be a memory and all will be well. Thanks for the support, I really appreciate it!!
