Not sure what to expect

I am unsure what to expect with my upcoming surgery. I will find out Monday what kind of surgery they are doing. I'm nervous, I'm in so much pain now I'm not sure how to deal with it. I am on Vicodin which helps a little but its hard to take while at work... My whole front hurts.
I have to idea what to expect my doctor gave me the info about it but I'm not sure what is all going to go on, what to expect before, during and after. I listened but didn't take it all in since I was in shock several doctors have told me this is the only option. Any anwsers or ideas or whatever are greatly appreciated!

Re: Not sure what to expect

I would say that once you know what type you are going to have go to that section on this board and read about it.
There are so many people on here that would love to answer your question more in depth but it will help to know the type of surgery because each one can be different...
Monday will come soon and more answers with it.

Re: Not sure what to expect

It is very nerve racking - a hysterectomy is MAJOR SURGERY no matter which procedure is being used. Everyone is different and can heal faster or slower. It will be helpful knowing what kind of surgery you are having and how much is being removed.

Can you bring someone with you to the doctor? It can help to have another set of ears listening to what is being said. Also, write down questions as you think of them now, so that you can discuss them with your doctor. This site also has good information for pre-op issues.

Hugs to you....
