Excited and terrified....

My 6 week post op check up is 6 hours away. I have not seen or spoke with my doctor since 1 week post op. He is not very forthcoming with information, so with out this site I would have thought I was completely crazy. My recovery thus far has been uneventful, thankfully. So I am very excited to try and get back to normal, without possible injury. But, terrified that since I have had no communication with the doctor and his lack of information, I will end up with a scary surprise at my check up.

My DH has been incredible and I know he will continue to be so. ( no matter what the doctor says I'm not allowed near the vacuum or snow blower) But we have waited soooo long already to be intimate. It has been at least 9 weeks, due to menses, stress and timing pre op and then the 6 weeks post op. What if we have to wait longer? DH will understand, as always, but I don't want to wait anymore!!!!

I know, better to wait and not risk complications later. (note the tagline) I think I am just stressing out over the possibilities. I always try to prepare myself for the down side of things, so I don't lose it completely.

But I also know I need to keep it together, since my DD is going for her first ever appt. with gyn 1 hr after my appt.. I don't want to freak her out.

I needed to just get this off my chest, though I don't think I will be able sleep anyway. Just means I'll have plenty of time to "pretty up" for my pelvic exam. (you know the doctor will notice my new lipstick)

to all the sisters who have asked the questions, for which I needed answers and to those who gave the answers. As I said I would have thought myself crazy without this site.

Well now I just feel silly. I was stressing over nothing. Everything is perfectly healed and he wasn't even going to do a full pelvic exam until he remembered I also had a cyst removed. So he had to take a peek.
Confirmed "all clear".
I do have to return in October and call if I run into any problems, but other than that.....it's party time.

Tam: How did your appointment go? How bad is the infection? Hope you are better soon.

Again, Thanks for letting me freak out and vent.

Awesome! I'm so glad that your appointment was great! Much ado about nothing, eh? Whew, what a relief!

And, I'm sure you know... feel free to freak out and vent anytime! And if you don't want to do it on the board, PM me anytime!

(You already know how my appointment went, from my own thread. Thanks for asking! You're so sweet!)
