Just found out about surgery on 12/14...I'm scared!!!!! :(

Hi everyone! I just recently found out that I will be having a LAVH on Dec. 14 and I am freaking out! I have no idea what to expect or what recovery will be like. I am hoping to hear from some of you who have been through this before. Any advice would be helpful I am 27 and have been diagnosed with adenomyosis and endometriosis. Thanks!

Hi Dietjl3

I know this is a very scary surgery. It is normal to freak out. This is MAJOR SURGERY, with the loss of an important organ. Know that many women on this site were once where you are now and have made it through. We can help you through this. We are here to help and support you in this time before surgery as well as after surgery.

There is much information on this site that may answer some of your questions. You might want to check out the pre-op section of this web site.

One thing you should know is that recovery can take a while. You will need help at home after surgery for several weeks. And you will probably have lifting restrictions, driving restrictions, and activity restrictions. Depending on your job, you will need to take several weeks off work - or longer.

Take care - I know this is a hard time right now. But, again, we are here for you.

((((HUGS))) to you.
