Rescheduling Question...HELP long post

Big sighhhhh...... I decided in October to become a punctured princess. A date was made for December, one week before Christmas. We found out my step mom was terminal and that that would be her last holiday, so I rescheduled for March. I'm working around college kid's breaks as they will be helping run their siblings around. Asked my GYN"s nurse in December about leakage, and she had me come in late January. The GYN referred me to a urogyn. Urogyn needs to do more tests to see if he needs to do anything, but said to go ahead with the hysterectomy. Posted here and general consensus was to wait and have testing done. I have the first of the tests done Tuesday, which is two weeks from my surgery. Talked with DH and we agreed if urogyn thinks he needs to do something, I only want one surgery date, not two. So after this very long post (sorry, but felt I needed to give the info), is two weeks not enough time to reschedule? And, since this is the second reschedule, will they think that's bad? My GYN is great, his nurse, not so great. I've had issues with her before, and have to say, I'm afraid of ticking her off royally. Which I know is stupid. But also, the new date would have to be June as I know the urogyn won't get everything done till April or May, and May is a busy month for me. And again, I apologize, but any help sisters is more than greatly appreciated.

Hey honey,

I do not think two weeks is too short notice to make a reschedule. This is YOUR health and you need to do what feels right to you. There is always another patient willing to slip into your spot. My hysterectomy happened early due to a cancelation, which I was extremely greatful for. You certainly are not the first to reschedule more than once. Remember...sometimes the DR will reschedule more times than that and we (the patient) have to understand.

Take care and do what feels necessary for you,

I don't think 2 weeks is a problem. They will fill the spot with someone on their cancellation list/urgent list.
Also, they will sometimes have to cancel a surgery with really short notice because of illness etc so I would think 2 weeks is plenty of time.
I'm not sure that it really matters that this will be the 2nd time you cancel. It IS your health so do what's best

Ditto what the others said....This is one time when you have to care for YOU first, and if that ticks someone off then boo hoo for them!!! Please don't let someone elses bad attitude jeopardize your health....If the receptionist gets nasty, just come here and we'll love on you empathize with you, and plot how we can gang up on the meanie and make her be nice to you!

Yep, I agree. Two weeks is plenty of time. At the office I work for we have people cancel the day before and sometimes even ON the day itself. I think they would appreciate the two week notice. Plus, it makes PERFECT sense to want everything done in one surgery. I am sure they''ll understand. And like Shalom said, if they don't understand, don't you worry about it. You do what's best for you.

Thanks so much everyone. I know I need to do what is best for me, and you've given me the courage, should I need to reschedule. With all of you behind me, she can't knock me down too far!

Absolutely two weeks is plenty of time to reschedule. If the dr's nurse gives you a hard time I would speak to the dr. I understand how you feel about honkerblonking her off but she should have a much better bedside manner if she wants to work in a doctor's office. You should also explain to the dr and nurse if you want to that you would only like to do one surgery, if they can't understand that too bad. Who would ever do two separate surgeries on purpose. You will have a lot of support from us so make the best decision for you. Lots of luck and best wishes.
