Re: HELP!!! Just need encouraging words!!!!

You poor thing....just try to take a deep breath!! I cannot speak to the PCOS side of things, but I do understand you having worries. You will be fine. There are horror stories of course, but there are a lot of positive stories too!

I am 6 months post op (tomorrow actually), and I have never felt better!! Nothing terrible went on in my surgery or recovery, I have a more enjoyable sex life than every before, I'm not experiencing any menopause symptoms, and I am no longer in pain!!

Just try to think positive and when your mind is racing and you need your spirits lifted, come here to your sisters...that's what we are here for!! to you!!

Hey there!

My surgery was one week ago, today!
I had everything removed.

It is a journey, getting to the surgery date.
Lots of concerns.
Lots of tears.

I used the weeks prior to surgery to do a lot of research.
Also, preparing, preparing, preparing...... for the recovery period.
Buying clothing I needed; gathering videos from friends; clearing my calendar for one month; paying bills; cleaning the house, etc...

And then when you arrive at the hospital, the highly skilled staff is waiting for you and they walk you through the hours leading up to the actual surgery.

I have a renewed high view of the medical people.
Even the medical aide who comes in to take the vitals.
They really do care about people.
And they really will do a great job taking care of YOU when your day arrives.

Your mind is going to be very active in the next few weeks.
Keep it on a very productive path.....
preparing well for the weeks of recovery that will follow your surgery.

You are going to do GREAT!!!

Re: HELP!!! Just need encouraging words!!!!

My surgery is approaching as well and I too and scared to death. I agree with the other posts that there are so many positive stories that it seems to outweigh the bad experiences. My surgery is on December 1st and it seems like it is consuming my life right now. Have faith and know that your hystersisters are here for you. Good luck and we will be praying for you.

Re: HELP!!! Just need encouraging words!!!!

AmyLynn, just know that you are NOT alone! I am scheduled for my surger on this coming Monday (11/14)...the waiting has been awful, with my mind going to all these really bad places. Morbid thoughts abound and yet, when I come here, I find that I start to feel better, especially when reading positive outcomes like the one that was shared here by Traci! It gives me so much hope. I really do try to stay away from reading the post-op threads...I did that on my first visit or 2 here and got totally freaked and decided I didn't need to "go there". My dr. told me, when I told him how scared I was, that he understood and would feel the same way if he was told he needed some sort of surgery...but, he assured me, he knew what he was doing and I DO believe him. Our logic and knowledge tells us of all kinds of things that can go wrong....but, I believe that deep down inside, we will ALL be okay in the long run...it's just getting over this fear prior to our surgeries. We have to keep holding onto the belief that we'll be alright. I do not know of the PCOS as I have not been diagnosed with that. Seriously, come here and vent when you need to...and just remember, you're not in this alone. Peaceful thoughts and positive energy to you!!

Re: HELP!!! Just need encouraging words!!!!

My surgery is this Monday the 14 also! I'm having davinchi with bso. I'm 43, but BRCA 2 + . I am all packed for the castle! Preparing has helped a lot! Being ready to go I'm still nervous but think positive thoughts! Sometimes anti anxiety meds can help if you are really upset, talk to your dr about them.

Re: HELP!!! Just need encouraging words!!!!

My surgery is Monday 11/14. I'm having a TAH. I have been completely consumed by it! I've been so busy preparing for the big day and post op. The anticipation is overwhelming!!! Seems like its taking forever to get here, yet it's now 4 days away! Ahhhh!! This is so intense! I do believe the waiting is the worst part, we will all get through this just fine! Thank you my sisters! So glad you're always here...it helps so much!

Re: HELP!!! Just need encouraging words!!!!

I'm having a LSH and BSO and I also have PCOS. I've been wondering how it will be afterwards, too. I currently take two medicines for my PCOS. My doctor seems to think I'll be able to go off those meds after my surgery, but we will see.
