It's Getting Closer...

Hello Ladies,

Well I just got a call from Barbara, a lady from the Castle who sets the time for you to come in and have the surgery done and I am to go in at 7:30am the day after Christmas!!! I'm just waiting for my Doctors office to call and let me know I can come pick up the order and Doctors office is in the Castle here so it's really convienient! I asked her what the usual Castle stay time is and she said a TVH is a couple days and that a TAH is at least 5 if my ovaries come out I will have a good long stay!!! Thank goodness. I only say thank goodness because I have 4 kiddos ages 5, 4, 2, and 10 months and I need some good rest time, even though nurses will be coming in and out and others too...that's fine, lol. I am praying that my Doctor takes my ovaries since they are causing so much pain...will you pray the same for me please? It would mean a lot to me! I am a little gittery, and have not eatin that much because of it. I'm not scared or afraid...I guess I'm just emotional...I get to thinking about it and I just start crying, not a sad cry though, it's so weird. I'm an emotional reck any way at any other time too though with terrible mood swings. I'm hoping all that will change down the road to recovery! Thank you for listening to me jabber on and on...just needed to get some of that out I guess...I'm going to work on getting some more stuff done around here. Thank you ladies! I have not posted a whole bunch but I've read a TON! Merry Christmas!!! 's

Hi Gina!
Welcome! Good for you!
I have had problems with cystic tumors in my ovaries, heavy bleeding,anemia,pain you name it..
When My Doc said the right ovary had to come out I asked if we could go a head and take it all out, he acted shocked but pleased and said yes! I was a good candidate for it and given all of my other problems and because my left ovary is about to be dead anyway. within the we would do the TAH_BSO, Have you told your Doctor how you feel and what you want He may be as open to what YOU want as my wonderful Doc is! You never know if you dont talk to him! Good luck and your in my thoughts and prayers!Please let us know how your doing!
Merry Christmas to you and yours!!!!

Hi Gina, I am in the same place as you with the ovaries. I had my pre op with my Doc today, have one at the castle later today, but I talked to my doc about removing my ovaries also, she said not a problem, yeah!!! Hopefully you will not have to keep yours and end up needing further surgury in the future. I am praying for you!!! My surgury is on Dec.29th, total vaginal hyst. Send a prayer my way please.

Hey Elaine,
The thing with my ovaries being removed is that medicaid wiil not let me have them removed, they say I'm to young...which I think is rediculous!!! So, we are having to wait till he is doing the TVH for hime to call it medically necissary to take my ovaries out. So it will start out as the TVH with him taking out my uterus and cervix, but he will have to do a TAH to take my ovaries and such. And who knows what else he may find while he's in there. So he knows that I want them out more than anything else in the world...he sees how much pain they cause me and is more than willing to take them out for me, it's just red tape from medicaid, but they can't say anything if when he's doing the hyst and sees that they need to come out, then it is 'Medically Necissary' and he can do whatever needs to be done obviously. Thanks so much for your post Elaine! I hope you have a Very Merry Christmas!!!
