Had Pre Op today. Getting real nervous about now.

Well Ladies:
Today I had my pre op. I was told I would be having a total hysterectomy. They are going to save the ovaries if possible but my doctor thinks its doubtful. Got all my instructions, made mental notes, putting a bag together and still lost. I guess I won't really get it until its said and done.

Re: Had Pre Op today. Getting real nervous about now.

Well, I have to say I felt a bit reassured by my pre-op. because I met pretty much everyone on the "team" who would be dealing with me during the surgery, and I was able to ask all the questions that still bothered me.
NOT that that takes away the fear, of course.

The day before my op., however, I felt surprisingly calm! I kept really busy preparing as much as I could because I live alone and knew I was going to lose all my "bits" - cervix, uterus, tubes, ovaries, so fairly major! At that stage I also had a possible chance of cancer hanging over me, too. (Thankfully a benign cyst, not the uterine tumour that an ultrasound AND a CT scan seemed to show!)
Anyway - here I am at week 4 post-op. and recovering well.
It's not a walk in the park, but if you are really sensible about resting and avoiding all the forbidden things, and just doing some walking by way of exercise, you will soon be on the road to recovery.
My surgery experience and hospital stay (5 days) was as positive as such things could possibly be and I was given heaps of helpful advice, and plenty of kind, caring, cheerful attention!

I wish the same for you! Soon you will be on the road to recovery, too!

Re: Had Pre Op today. Getting real nervous about now.

I am so sorry you are feeling lost, but this is completely normal. This is major surgery with a loss of an important organ. It is hard to let go of this, I know. Hopefully, you can keep your ovaries.

Sometimes, it takes a while for the emotional part of you to catch up with the situation. It was that way for me too. I can often split like that in these types of situations. That is okay, too. Just process this surgery as you need to.

We are here to support you. This site has a bunch of wonderful, strong women who can offer all kinds of insight. Post as often as you need.
