Very emotional VH keeping ovaries in two weeks

Anyone else feeling overwhelmed with fear and up and down emotions? I feel like I want to cry so often here lately. I am not depressed or have low self-esteem. I wonder if my hormones are just that out of whack... Any suggestions?

Re: Very emotional VH keeping ovaries in two weeks

I wanted to let you know you are not alone! Since the day I found out, I have been a mess(May 11th) I have days where I am "normal" and then there are the "down" days! Something really small can set me off and then the whole day is ruined. I had my first panic attack the day I found out(It was scary) They say the waiting is the hardest part. I sure hope so!!! Just hang in there and soon enough we will be on the other side posting we are glad we did this

Re: Very emotional VH keeping ovaries in two weeks

Thank you for your reply. Good to feel what we are going through is normal. My preop is July 1 and surgery July 6. Hope yours goes well also. Going to go powerwalking with jog spurts. This usually helps calm my emotions down and gives me a bit of "me". Think time. Glad we have each other to support through this preop. I am keeping both ovaries. Hopeful this will offset meno for a good while:0)

Re: Very emotional VH keeping ovaries in two weeks

My surgery is 12 days after yours. My preop is July 11th and surgery 18th. This website has been a godsend! I started a list of questions to ask at my preop appt(10 so far) I started to pick up a few things I will need at the castle. Went shopping for some "big" jammies. I bought a body pillow(not sure if I will use it, but teen daughter wants it when I'm done I'm also gonna get a pillow pet to hold the swelly belly! I just thought it would be more fun to look at I'm trying to be organized! LOL!!! Oh I'm gonna keep my ovaries unless they look bad???

Re: Very emotional VH keeping ovaries in two weeks

Hey Gals... good to hear someone else is freaked out.. I am at the very beginning of this journey (bad trip?) Just got results yesterday of ultrasound: ovarian cyst, large fibroid and thickening of the lining that needed testing to rule out cancer. I am 53 but very athletic and no menopause yet, so who knew this could come up??!! Waiting first to see about the lining to see what comes next....

Quick question. Do you gals know if they use the CO2 gas with a vaginal hysto? One reason I requested the VH over the DvH.

Re: Very emotional VH keeping ovaries in two weeks

Sorry, I know nothing except what I have been learning in the past 24 hours. You two are much further along.. I am even amazed that your 'prep' starts so long before your surgery date, so I have so much to learn about what that all entails. All the best, I will be learning!

Pray all 3 of our surgeries go smooth with a speedy recovery. I know from last surgeries to request different types of pain meds due to nausea. Hydrocodone esp makes me vomit. Percocet not so bad.

Re: Very emotional VH keeping ovaries in two weeks

I'm not sure on the Co2 gas??? This will be my first surgery. Well I had a laperscopy yrs ago, but that was nothing compared to this. I'm thinking about asking for something for nausea, BEFORE they knock me out!(or sometime before I wake up) Just trying to cover all my options!:0 ATB53 The more you read on here, the more you learn. I have learned soooooooo much! I didn't have a clue about any of it. Best wishes!!!
