Surgery tomorrow

Cyd, Kaatie, Puppy, Robin and everyone else...

Today is a better day than yesterday and hopefully tomorrow will be even better.

I will be reporting to the hospital at 9 am in the morning tomorrow for my 10:30 surgery.

I'm nervous... but with the help of Prince Valium, my psychiatrist, family, wonderful friends and my new online friends I am going to do this.

I didn't think any part of this would make me SO happy, but I guess some of my ambivalence was due to the fact that my gyn I trust, love and I am devoted to kinda had to pass me on to someone else as she is going on maternity leave. The other doctor and I... well... we didn't really mesh well. My first appt with her was 40 minutes of her telling me I was overweight. And went downhill from there.

My regular gynecologist just called me a few minutes ago (poor thing was in jury duty and got my message)... she said she would be there. She was coming there for me.

I am almost feel like crying I feel so much relief. I am still very very nervous, anxious and all of the other normal feelings but knowing she will be there... she has kept me straight every other time when I haven't been too compliant...

Her parting words to me today were...."Gina, I just want you to be well." And I know she meant it.

Thank you again everyone....

Love,

Gina

Gina,
I'm glad you sound alittle more at peace today after talking to your gyn. I'm glad she will be there for you. I had the exact same thing in August along with PCOS. Mine was cancer and all removed with the uterus. I will be praying for you tomorrow and those who will be around you for support, they are a very important part of your recovery also. I hope you sleep well tonite and I know you will do great tomorrow!

PS- the hyst has erased most of the PCOS symtems as well!

So glad that you decided to do this Gina I will keep you very close to my heart tomorrow and you will be in my prayers.

I had the same experience with one of my oncologists ,we had a bad personality clash , sometimes they are a bit hard to deal with. but that is all over now for you . Gina you are on your way .

Gina , like your DR says .... we just want you to be well.

Much love always to you x x x x

Thank you everyone...

That also gives me a sigh of relief to think that perhaps instead of having MORE hormonal problems because of the PCOS, it may get better?? WOW. Now there is a real reason to celebrate!!!!

Talk to you when I get back.

Love,

Gina

I am so glad your heart has changed about this, Gina. Many of us have been following your posts and have been praying for you.

There are lots of good things that came from my surgery. I met all of these wonderful ladies here at Hystersisters. I got a much needed rest. I have been at my job 33 years and never was off for more than a vacation so I had no idea how nice it was to stay home and not do anything! I loved it! You will find many blessings, too.

We are all pulling for you, Gina. I will be happy when we hear from you that its over and all is well.

GinaMae, I will keep you in my prayers!! I'm sure that you will be just fine and knowing that your regular gyn will be there is surely a relief to you. Wow, what a caring doctor you have!! Try to rest your mind and just keep thinking about how very soon you will be a crowned princess being pampered!
I'm so glad that you are doing better emotionally! It's normal to be scared, we all were. Don't forget that we are all here for you and hope to hear from you when you feel up to it!
