Hi, April buddies. I have had a stinker of a week - felt exhausted at the end of the week and came home to a doctor's message asking me to come in for another injection. Rested mostly all weekend, then decided to cut down my Transexamic acid pills - big mistake! Had huge bleeding again on Monday, very difficult to last the day at work, so have now agreed to go in for another Lupron injection tomorrow. Had to go back on the Trans. tablets that stop the bleeding but give me big headaches (think they dehydrate me). I think all this is to make me really eager for my April 10 surgery date! If only I could get everything done I need to before I go in. Also, is anyone else suddenly being hit by little messages from friends and relatives suggesting they will visit at Easter? Why do the holidays make people all forget that we aren't feeling well and just want to rest?

April 3

My TVH is scheduled for April 3. I am really starting to get cold feet. Yet I have been bleeding for 3 months, long after menopause. So I guess I am glad - just worried.

My Dr. is also taking my ovaries. He is planning on doing the TVH with a spinal block. He tells me I should be up and doing quite fine within two weeks.

I really trust and like the guy. I just hope all goes well. I hate waiting.

Mercredi: The waiting is crazy, isn't it. April 3 is when I go in for my pre-op tests, so I will think of you while I am waiting around at the hospital. It does sound very brave to get your op done with just a spinal block, but perhaps they will also give you some relaxation pill at the same time? Getting the anasthesia is one part I look forward to, in a weird way, since it has been hard to sleep recently. It's great that you like your doctor, and if he has a good "bedside manner" perhaps he will keep talking you through the procedure as he does it. I hope the 2 week prediction is accurate. My "second opinion" surgeon said to me recently that everyone is different, and I "would not be worth tuppence" for the first 2 weeks post-op, but could start to feel better soon after that as I am relatively young and fit. Ha! - it is hard to feel either young or fit at the moment, though I know it is all relative.

Please remember that the "Friends Without Faces" forum is for fun and social chit-chat only, and not for hysterectomy support.

We ask that those discussions be conducted in the appropriate support forum ~ this is to avoid missing out on the awesome support available in the <link> Pre-Op forum!

Thank you for your understanding and co-operation in support of the ((sisterhood)).
