Don't know how much longer I can wait

Hello sisters,
I see my Dr on Tues. for my pre-op exam and I should have my surgery date by then (vaginal cuff repair & lap. for adhesions) but the past few days my symptoms have gotten so much worse. I now have stabbing pains in my vagina and my lower right back aches so bad, I can hardly stand it. It will hurt like hell for a few hours, then ease up to a bearable ache. I didn't know adhesions could bother my back so much? I just hope that my surgery is right around the corner b/c I am so miserable. Sorry for being such a downer, but venting makes me feel better. Thanks sisters!

Maybe you can give the doc a call and let him/her know that is getting MUCH worse and see if you can get in sooner. I know before my hyst they had scheduled me for like 8 weeks out, and I called every day and begged, pleaded and cried alot. Well, they must have gotten tired of me pestering them, because I had my surgery scheduled the following week.

Good luck MB, if you can't get in sooner I hope the time passes quickly for you.

BTW, you're NOT a downer. We're here for you when you need us. Vent away!

Thanks, sisters, for your kind words. If, when I see my Dr on Tues. my surgery date is not soon enough, I will then insist it be moved up as I am just too miserable. Sometimes I think I come across to my Dr as this sweet, easy-going pushover. Well, if things don't go my way on Tues., I'll just have to "get my Irish up" and demand I be fixed sooner!!! I will let you all know what happens!

yeah, in most cases I have found that if you let them know you are available on short notice for cancellations and what not they can usually push you up........and sometimes you just have to get your "irish up" to accomplish anything

Luck 'o the Irish

Dear MB,
I'm so sorry you are in pain and miserable. I agree with the other sisters. We have to be proactive and fight hard at times to get things done. By all means "get your Irish up" if ya have to. I'll be with you in spirit (Irish ancestry here myself : ))
Love, Light, Blessings

I would definitely tell the doctor you are suffering so. He/She may not even realize how much you are hurting. I can be a real marshmallow and then kick myself afterwards, so I strive to be a pain in the neck when need be these days! I'm sure my doctor's would agree!

Hang in there Hon! Good luck!

I know the feeling, and I had to pester and push a little. Once they realised the situation had worsened then I was scheduled earlier. Hang in there, but do let them know about your worsening symptoms.
