Days left....

Ok, so I am super excited about my surgery!! I know that sounds silly but I am. I have had so many surgeries that it doesn't bother me anymore. I actually am more scared about the IV than anything because I know it HAS to go in my hand this time because I will be at the hospital for a few days. It's funny actually. I hope all goes smoothly for everyone else also!!!!!

Best wishes to you. I'm excited too, but the stress is starting to catch up with me.

Best of luck with your surgery! Wishing you an easy recovery.

Oh, and they put my IV in a vein in my wrist, not in my hand, and it was good there for two days. When it came out during the night (I think I got the line tangled up in my sleep or something), they started the new one in the same place on my other arm. Much less uncomfortable than the top of the hand, in my experience.

Re: Days left....

Well, when I had my ectopic pregnancy, they put it in my wrist and now I have a huge scar. There was a hole in wrist for 3 days afterwards, it was awful. I don't mind the hand but it hurts more than the AC anyday. I drew blood for a year at a hospital and always got complaints when I had to go to the hand, plus the veins are smaller and morefragile so they tend to leave a hematoma more than in the AC, which SUCKS. So hopefully it won't be bad because I have good veins and I hope that makes things better!!

That does not sound silly to me at all! I was nervous and excited at the same time - wanted to throw up but could hardly bear the wait. The day before was the easiest in spite of the bowel prep I had to do.

There's nothing silly about looking forward to getting beyond the suffering that has led you to agree to a hysterectomy. A successful surgery and a speedy recovery to you!

Re: Days left....

I'm excited too! I'm excited about feeling good again. I'm excited about not being in a fetal position in my bed all the time. I'm excited about not standing up from an airplane seat and looking at it and praying there is no blood on the seat. I'm excited about being normal. I remember this whole period thing not being a concern of mine and I am looking forward to it not being a concern again.

So yes, I am excited too. I don't think there is anything wrong with that. These are exciting times. This is the start of a new, unfamiliar chapter for all of us.

Good luck to us all and see ya on the flip side!

Re: Days left....

I'm excited for mine, too!! Still about a week out for me, though. Patience is a virtue, right?

I love that you say you're breaking up with your uterus, because I have been looking at it the same way. "It's not you, it's me . . . oh wait, I take that back; it is ALL you!"

Best wishes!

Re: Days left....

It's not you, it's me. See, I'm going thru this selfish phase. I just need something more, something different. You're a great uterus. We've had some good times. I'll always remember those. But I think it's time to move on.

You'll find someone else out there who's better for you.... Just kidding! There's nobody better than me!!!
