I understand. Had mine done on the 6th. Came home on the 7th. Been doing great. Have only taken one pain pill since being home. I'm so glad to have it done!!! Try to relax. Stay hydrated before and after your surgery.

Re: 5 days till TVH

I have had surgery in the past i was supposed to have laproscopic surgery to remove my gall bladder, when i woke up i was in agonizing pain, i had 28 staples across my belly. My hospital stay was a week. Im nervous now because my gyno said he hopes that everything goes as "planned" and that an abdominal hyst is not necessary.

Re: 5 days till TVH

When you go to the hospital they will have you sign paperwork that says you agree to surgery. The paperwork will include a backup plan. Don't panic. They have to do that. My husband had to take a deep breath at that point because he thought the game plan had changed.

I am 54 and past menopause. Have three wonderful kids. Cancer runs in my family and I have early symptoms. These were my reasons for a hysterectomy. I am very very pleased that it is over. Keep remembering your reasons for having one. It will help you stay calm.

I am so glad I had a TVH, wish I had done it sooner. Uterus was large but my Dr was able to get it out in 3 pieces. Surgery look longer than expected, over 4 hours. Have had no complications, feel great now.

Re: 5 days till TVH

Number8: Im hanging in there, had an anxiety attack, couldnt sleep saturday nite. But, all in all, im here. I have one day till the big day Tuesday. I hate the fact i had 2 weeks to THINK about my hysterectomy. My reasons for a hyst is my endometrium is really thick, and my periods are heavy, clotty, and painful. Even sex is painful. I think im just excited to get me better, it makes me nervous!
I thank the Lord for blessing me with my 2 beautiful children, a son and a daughter.

Re: 5 days till TVH

I am new here I just had a TVH 3 weeks post op now and I am doing good ready to go back to work next week. Trust and have faith God will see you through this time of need. My surgery took longer than expected and my husband had no clue what was going on with me I wasn't breathing after surgery 4hrs after surgery he was able to come back and sit with me.
I was blessed with 4 perfect and beautiful children I am in my late twenties and I know that God was watching over me I had cancer and now I am cancer free.
Everyone gets the butterflies in the stomach before something like this and the what if's start to come crashing in right before surgery mine was so fast I had no time to really sit down and think about anything so I know it is scary you just need to know God is with you ever step of the way.

I will be praying for you and a fast recovery ! ! God bless you . .
