Getting a little scared

I am less than 1 month from TAH (23June). I'm a 40 yearold mother of 4 and a nurse and I am still VERY nervous!!!! I have been cleaning the house to keep myself busy. This site has been a godsend. I wish you well (and all other pricesses waiting to enter the castle) and thank you to those already there who have been so generous with your advice and support!

tynkerbelle, hi! I am having my hysterectomy on Tues the 30th, a day before you. Also for pre-cancer. Is your diagnosis hyperplasia by any chance? ( I don't know of any other pre cancer diagnosis) I have complex atypical hyperplasia and am a nervous wreck. I have been driving myself crazy for the last 3 weeks. I am at the point that I just want it over with so I know what I am dealing with. Hopefully we caught it in time and that will be it.

I can really identify with you ladies in waiting!! I was so scared, I fretted and worried and obsessed. But honestly, and everyone is different, the worry was worse than my hyster. It happens so fast, you wake up and it's over, you can have meds if you need them (I only needed one shot! then nothing!). I got the groovy mesh panties and the pad after the nurse took out my packing and catheter (doesn't hurt coming out, don't worry!). I only wore the mesh panties the first night, and the next morning put on my own clean panties and a mini pad. Didn't have anything but a day of 'spotting', and then nothing since then.

Honestly, having my hyster was such a good thing. I feel so much better now, and last year at this time I was two weeks post-op. Take care of yourselves now, a few bites of chocolate, good books, buy a new nightie if you can afford it, clean and iron your favorite one if you can't. You will honestly be glad after it is all over. Everyone told me that, but I didn't believe it. Now I'm a believer!!!

My thoughts and prayers are with you all, and may your experience be as safe, painless and happy as mine!!

Waiting is definitely the worst part. I'm 2 weeks post op and am recovering better than I could have hoped. I was not nervous about the surgery per se, but it really does hang over you. I could not wait to get it over with and get on with my life. The first thought I had in the recovery room was "thank God it's over".

Try to keep busy with some fun diversions. That will help to make the waiting go quickly.

Best of luck to you!

I too am waiting for my surgery date (July 25th) and it feels like torture. I wish I could go in tomorrow! I keep going over everything that could possibly go wrong.

Best of luck to you, with the waiting, the surgery and the recovery!
