Re: Countdown - how long do you have? How long have you been waiting?

I have pre-op on the 31st and TAH on Nov.11. 2 days before my 48th birthday. I saw my Oncologist two weeks ago and we scheduled the surgery then.
Good Luck to everyone!

Haha, I'm hoping I will be able to eat my somewhat-regular Thanksgiving meal, lol!

I guess I am being naive, but I'm not anticipating much pain...I'm having a LSH with BSO. Am I being ridiculous in thinking it won't be so bad???

Surgery is on November 30th. I have been waiting since July, but the delay was my choice because of work issues. I'm resigned to it now and not too anxious.

Re: Countdown - how long do you have? How long have you been waiting?

booked my surgery a couple of weeks ago,and have 6 weeks to go, I know it will go by fast, went for my pre-op ,just questions for the Dr, and got very informed answers
with the DaVinci I guess they will tilt my head down quite a bit for around 10 minutes, to shift my (parts ) up and make sure my oxegen levels and things are in order before they knock me out.Then only when he gets in there will he know what he is taking out, for sure the uterus and the cervix, all the rest is questionable

Ready to be done.
Not ready to hurt.

5 days left! I'm mentally prepared.Now I'm dealing with a stuffed up nose!! This has to clear up before then. Aunt Flo has come this week, but her evacuation papers are drafted and she will be outta here, in another day or two! yippie!! Will they still do the surgery, if my nose is stopped up?

I'm booked for Nov. 16th. It will be a total of about 8 weeks waiting. The pain is making me crazy. I want it over with already but am afraid of how I'll feel after. Darn
