Cannot WAIT for this to be over!

I am having what is hopefully my last menstrual period this week and it was very heavy and has started to get a little better. OK that does happen with me- not what I am addressing in this post. My surgery date is not yet set as I have not heard back from my doctors office on the date but am anxiously waiting...

So I have not been doing too great with this period. All night last night I had to sleep on my one side without moving because if I did move or change position I would get sharp pain in my right side. Not my lower abdomen but near my natural waistline. I had my gallbladder removed a year ago. I have had similar pain before but it usually doesn't last so long. Most times it just disappears as quickly as it came on. Also before this period started I had a lot of dizziness and vertigo. Anyway... I just hate this and some of this just completely reinforces my decisions. (the usual stuff was enough to deal with during each cycle)

Guess I just needed to whine a little. I so want to feel better. I got all that and then my head decides it wants a migraine yesterday which was awful.

Just waiting for that phone to ring!

Re: Cannot WAIT for this to be over!

Hi starryskies,
I know exactly how you feel. It's really hard to have to wait when you feel really crappy. I just finished my period (bloodless) last week, I almost didn't think I was gonna make it with the pain. I did though, still waiting. I hope you get a call soon and get a date soon also. The waiting seems to be the worst part for me. Hang in there! I will say a little prayer that your phone rings today

Re: Cannot WAIT for this to be over!

I hear ya sister! Thankfully I am not scheduled for Flo's visit until the week after the hyst. Not that Flo has ever arrived on schedule or stayed the normal duration. So I am now in the very painful PMS mode which lasts for about 2 weeks and is reminding me why I can't wait to get this done.
I cant stand the waiting and I have a date. I really hope you get the call soon and that you wont have to wait much longer. Hang in there!

Re: Cannot WAIT for this to be over!

huge hugs!!! Know that feeling my last full af pre op was while on vacation!! I spent the evening af showed up curled up in a chair w/ my rice heating pad wondering why I felt so horrible (didn't realize af was showing up early at that point). That night spot showed up w/ cramps from hell that lasted the entire next day we were driving from Reading, PA to Hampton, VA. Ohhh yeah nothing like being stuck in a car ALL day while having cramps from hell and no heating pad! I was taking 800mg motrin and 2 tylenol thru the day as often as I could and still in horrible pain.

Then if that hadn't been bad enough AF showed the morning of surgery so I sat in pre op w/ cramps from HELL.

Now I am 5.5 wks post op and feeling GREAT!!!! SOOO glad I did this!!!
