Insurance approval

I have been informed that my health insurance has approved my surgery for July 30th. Wow, great news! It is always a struggle w/ insurance so I'm really surprised it is done this early. One less thing to have to worry about. I am seeing my dr. on the 25th to ask more ?'s. She is thinking of a TVH but I'm worried about the adhesions she's already noticed on my bladder from my 2 c-sections. So, is it ok if I ask for a TAH? I don't want any holes or anything like I've read some women have had. I know you heal faster w/ a TVH, but I'm not keen to the idea of all those stitches in there! Any posts to this would be greatly appreciated! Thanks ladies for all your help.

insurance approval

hi!! i am surprised that my surgery was approved so readily,but i am kind of waiting for the other shoe to drop. every day that goes by,getting closer to the "coronation" makes me nervous that the stupid insurance company will deliver the declaration that my surgery is "unnecessary". mine is for uterine fibroids,and cervical dysplasia(CIN3,2 LEEP's). i'm keeping my ovaries;at least that's the way it looked at my consult appointment in may. she said my ovaries are healthy and i'm still young enough to get about 10 or more years use out of them. i have,overall,a healthy outlook toward the surgery,itself,and my recovery. i have a high threshold for pain,so i don't think i'll be needing too much in the way of post-op painkillers. i will have plenty of reading material available to me,and when i read,i shut out EVERYTHING else!!!!! i refilled my scrip for Anaprox 550mg,recently,for relief of annoying cramps from my fibroids. it works within 15 minutes,so i think positively,that i can get by on that,should i need it. i wish all my 'sisters' a speedy recovery. i came here in march,just after my 2nd LEEP,and my sister told me i was nuts for being preoccupied with thoughts of hysterectomy,but that's because she and mom had already been filling me with thoughts of hyster anyway. hello!!!! and I'm the "crazy" one????

Hi Patti!!

Congrats on the iinsurance approval. I am Canadian and we don't have that hassle here with dealing with insurance companies and I had no idea what the American sisters go through with trying to get approval and all the red tape etc that goes along with dealing with insurance companies until I joined this wonderful site.
So its great news that you got the approval you needed!

As for your question about whether you can ask for a TAH instead of a TVH, I guess you could ask, but your gyn may be looking at the best procedure for you, and she must be confident that she will do well with the TVH, but never hurts to ask right?

All the best with your surgery Patti!

Congratulations on the insurance approval. That is a huge relief. My suggestion on your procedure question would be to ask your doctor. The doctor, I'm sure, has a reason for wanting to do a TVH rather than TAH. Either way, you will have lots and lots of stitches on the inside. Many many stitches that eventually dissolve.
