5 more days. getting nervous(Kids mentioned)


I have been on this site for a month or so now and this is my first new post. Ive responded to others before but never started one. I have gotten so much great info here and dont know what i would have done with out all of you.
Im 36 yrs old with three kids. I was diagnosed with endometriosis in Jan. after 2 long years of searching and feeling like I was crazy. My surgery is scheduled for tues and the last few days have been unbearable. I seem to be in more pain than usual. Maybe its just stress about the big day. I dont feel that Im nervous about the surgery itself.....I think its more about the after and the whether I should take the HRT or not. Also just not being able to do all the stuff im used to doing.

How do you deal with being so...... not able to contribute to the house hold. I plan on cleaning the house top to bottom before surgery but with kids it does not stay that way for long.
Any pointers on how to keep from feeling usless??????

My 2 yr old is going to be hard to convince that im not a jungle gym any more. Im a stay at home mom so she is with me 24/7. Dad is great with picking up the slack, I think its going to be hard on her though. my DH keeps telling me im worrying too much, but how do you stop worrying? Is it even possible?
Thanks for listening and if anyone has any insight I sure would appreciate some advice.

Re: 5 more days. getting nervous(Kids mentioned)

I don't think it's possible to stop the worrying. I think it's part of the process. Here's a tip I read from another sister about being helpful...When walking through the house use a swiffer to do the floors. I also plan on wiping down the counters in the kitchen when I'm in there. Because if I don't who will?? I also plan on having a cleaning company come in a month after surgery. I think it will be worth my sanity.

I think you will be pleasantly surprised how much you can do after your surgery! I had my LAVH last Tuesday and was doing laundry, dishes, etc by Thursday!!

Listen to your body and rest when you need to but trust me, it isn't that bad.

Best wishes to you!!
