Hi:

I am sure you will be fine. I consulted with 2 GYN Oncologists before scheduling my surgury and one of the questions that I asked is if they had ever lost a patient in surgury and they both quickly replied "No" .. One of them has been doing hysterectomies since the early 80s.

This is really a fairly common surgury now I never hear of anyone dying during it.

You will be home sooner than you know it.

Good luck tomorrow and try not to worry...

((HuGS))

Any surgery is frightening. I remember crying the night before mine worried that I would not wake up. But I did and while it's slow-going, life is getting better every day.

I think the fear of the "unknown" is giving you jitters. No matter what, until you've done it "it" will remain unknown. The most important thing to remember is that you're not alone!!

Keep yourself busy with quiet activities (don't wear yourself out before surgery) and try to remember you're doing the best thing you can for yourself!

And we're waiting for you on the post-op side when you finally get back.

Best wishes for uneventful surgery and speedy recovery!

Hugs,
Buzylady

Hi brokencorazon! I too am heading off to the hospital in the morning for my da vinci total hysterectomy and BSO. To me, the worst part is the bowel prep! I had an abdominal surgery three years ago and had the same thoughts as you before having that done...but just remember, your doctors, nurses, the anesthesiologist, etc do these everyday...they know how to take care of you! Before you know it, we'll all be back home recovering nicely and posting that it was not nearly as bad as we had anticipated! Sending calming thoughts your way tonite and tomorrow too!

Its normal to feel nervous. Even tho this was my third abdominal surgery, i was still nervous. You will be fine.

The doctors and nurses really do try to make you as comfortable as possible. By this time tomorrow you will be on your way to healing.

take care.....lala

I was terrified of being put out but I can tell you that everything went fine and I'm so glad I got over it. I actually had a GREAT anestiologist that saw how nervous I was and went ahead and gave me something to help with the nerves. Just let them know that you are very nervous, they want you to be as comfortable as possible and will try to help if possible.
Good luck!

Sending along my best wishes too...

I was very, very nervous last week before my procedure too. Trust that your health care team will be looking out for you and you WILL be fine. Soon you will be answering posts for other pre-op princesses to reassure them!
