I am a Nervous Wreck - scheduling of TAH (& more) is today!

I am a big ole ball of nerves right now! I am so anxious, and nervous, and stressed, and worried - Sheesh - I have sooo many different stressful emotions going on right now!!!

I have 3 pages of questions for the Dr, and lists of things I will take to the hospital, and things I will need for when I am home.

I have to sign a bunch of papers (legal stuff), and I wonder if that is something everyone has to do... or if it is just due to my age.... I am right in the midst of my "child bearing years" - though getting pregnant isn't a possibility now for me at all.

The sub urethral cyst I have has grown to the size of a freakin' golf ball in the last couple of weeks... and it is making me NUTS!!! Has anyone else out there ever had one? It's not really inside of me, but it's not really outside of me either - I can see it with a mirror. So odd. I have even had to deal with my special guy making remarks about my hyperandrogonism testosterone levels from the PCOS and how he thinks it could be a little wanker and not a cyst.... Grrrr..... men sometimes.

The Dr will schedule my TAH today (and the vagianl removal of the sub urethral cyst), and I look forward to being rid of the Severe Endometriosis, and all of the other nutty things that are wrong with that area of my body.

Any advice out there to help me calm down?!?! I would greatly appreciate it....

Hi BeeWitch,

You are absolutely normal and just where you ought to be for what you are doing!!! Ha Ha Ha

Let's see.... I also had to sign a bunch of papers, I think it's normal. The list of questions is a great thing to have. You might want two copies, one for you and one for the dr. so they can review it with you. As far as the anxiety, I think its normal. There are articles on it on the pre-op page. If it gets to be too much I would discuss it with your dr.

Good luck with everything and take good care.

I was so nervous and scared that I put my hyster off for 7 years. For me, the waiting was truly the worst part.

You are perfectly normal to be nervous. This site was great for me, so feel free to lean on us.

I just put you on my prayer list, so I will be praying for you.

Hi BeeWitch -

I was freaked out when the doc suggested the surgery but once I decided to do it I was very calm.

I'm a list maker too. It helps to think through what you want to ask and have it written down so you don't forget. Also I tried to think through everything I could want to have at home. (Making sure I had a bed on the first floor, buying some comfy pants, etc...)

Once I've thought through everything I get calmer. Hope that helps for you as well. I also know that my faith helped me a lot. I know that God has a plan for my life and His plan is better than anything I could ever dream up, even with a surgery like this.

Wishing you all the best!
Susan

Thanks so much to all of you Sisters... ((((HUGS)))) I appreciate the words of encouragement.... I had a really rough day. The lab work did show cancerous levels (of what I am not sure)... and I have to have more blood work done before I go under the knife.

The ladies who schedule the surgeries leave at 4:30pm each day, and my appointment went until almost 5pm, so I won't find out until tomorrow morning what the exact date of my TAH & BSO and removal of the suburethral cyst is going to be.

I had my pre-op today and it went pretty good. Found out dr doesn't require a bowel prep! WOOHOO!!
I'm still really nervous and have knots in my stomach right now. ugh

I hope we all have uneventful surgeries and problem free recoveries!

HUGS

Hi Bee Watch, Actually most of us feel the way you are feeling right now, but when it comes right down to it, "they're" so into the hysterectomy business, that it just comes together quite smoothly. They will already be anticipating your nervousness and have answers to many of your questions, as a matter of procedure. It isn't as big a deal as your emotions are putting you through. I am going to pray to God that you will be able to give it over to him, and put it out of your mind for now. I have a plaque on my wall that says "DON'T WORRY ABOUT TOMORROW, GOD'S ALREADY THERE" Isn't that great! It'll all work out fine, things that we fearfully anticipate really hardly ever happen, if you'll look back and think about it. bonniebolander
