Two weeks left

Feeling anxious to get it over with. I hate it when people congratulate you for having a hyterectomy. That's not how I feel. I wouldn't be having one if I didn't have the problems I have. When you go through tough times, you find out who your true friends are and who the true jerks are in your life. I know at 42, I'm not young, but not having my period kind of feels like I'm giving up my youth. Going for the pre op stuff tomorrow. I guess it's all about looking ahead and not looking back.

Re: Two weeks left

There are many insensitive jerks out there - and congratulating you on a hysterectomy would certainly be right up there! That really makes me want to or who ever said that to you.

At 42, you ARE young for this - no you are not in your 20's or 30's but you are still young. I am 46, and it has impacted me. No woman would choose for this to happen to them. It has been forced upon you, against your will.

Know that on this site, women REALLY understand what you are going through. We will be here for you to help guide you through both pre-op and post-op issues. This site is full of wonderful, strong women, many of whom were where you are right now.

Post as often as you need. It really helps. We will be waiting for you on the other side.

Super Cyber ((((Hugs)))), sweetie. You have friends here....

Re: Two weeks left

I'm sorry that you feel that way. I feel the total opposite.
I am 41 had my TVH on July 27th and every month I congratulate myself for not having a period!!

All the pain and mess is behind me.

But, that's just my opinion.

Best wishes to you.
