Aunt flo scheduled to arrive b4 surgery

Hi ladies, Looks like Aunt Flo lol will be arriving right before my surgery. Just my luck . Is there anyone experiencing the same issue or any concerns? I did call my dr & surgery is still on schedule. I wonder is this interferes with the procedure at all. Thanks

I didn't have this issue but a lot of other ladies have and everything went ahead as planned with no problems.

Good luck with your surgery!

Re: Aunt flo scheduled to arrive b4 surgery

My schedule was never predictable, and toward the end, I was having 2-3 periods/month, so I just went with the first surgery date available, and sure enough, started the day before surgery. It is not an issue. When you are told to change into the gown, tell them you are on your cycle and they will give you the "hospital underwear" to wear into surgery. I brought my own pads, and used a fresh one just before they took me in. When I came out of surgery, I had a hospital pad in the same undies.

I was just glad it would be my last one EVER!

Re: Aunt flo scheduled to arrive b4 surgery

I just had mine done this past Tuesday and had been on a heavy flow since my son was born 4 months previous. The dr wasn't concerned, and I just let the nurses know and they were totally ok and prepared for it. It was amazing to go from gushing blood to a few drops here and there in a matter of hours. Good luck!

Thank you ladies! I was hoping to go in the hospital minus the bleeding because my first few days are very painful ..., but on a positive note that will be the last one I see YAY!!!

Re: Aunt flo scheduled to arrive b4 surgery

It wasn't a problem for me. I kid you not, I started my period right before I they wheeled me into for surgery. One last hurrah, I suppose. It didn't make a difference at all for my outcome.

Re: Aunt flo scheduled to arrive b4 surgery

The title of your thread caught my eye, and I want to thank everyone for responding. I have a little over a week until my hysterectomy and it just figures...Aunt Flo has decided to visit me as well. She had to get that one last hoorah in there I guess. I was a couple weeks late for a change and now she has hit with a vengence. Will be glad that this will be her last!!! I hope she doesn't stick arond until the 7th for my surgery.

Re: Aunt flo scheduled to arrive b4 surgery

Hey bedofroses, my surgery is for the same day as yours and aunt flo is coming with me too. How lovely of her to join me. I'm also in Florida like you. I called the doctor's office and asked if this was going to be a problem and the answer was no.
