10 Reasons why I'm looking forward to surgery next week.

1. No more blood stained underwear.
2. No more economy boxes of tampons and pads.
3. No more monthly pain meds.
4. I will have off of work for Christmas AND Christmas eve!
5. I will get to sleep a LOT while recovering and won't have to worry about getting up for work!
6. I look forward to the pain free, no-leaking onto all my clothes months.
7. Right now the pain makes me tired. No pain after will make me less tired and make me feel like doing things again!
8. I will be able to buy "nice" underwear and never have to worry about ruining them.
9. I will be happier.
10. My DH will be happier.

Today I went shopping and bought all new undies!!! It was so great to throw out those ucky ones. So far, no downside to the hysterectomy. I'm so glad I did it. Good luck with your surgery.

I am with you on all counts! No more economy bottles of pain killers. I have a cute panty fund ready to go. T-minus 7 days and counting!

Re: 10 Reasons why I'm looking forward to surgery next week.

I am T minus 25 days for my trip to the castle, and I'm looking forward to my LAVH. Stressed with work and the holidays, but I know things will be better when I come out on the other side. Bought myself all the time I could after 2 novasure procedures (one in 2005 and the second in 2010), and a bladder suspension. Going through in vitro and having multiples (triplets) is not nice to the inside of your body, and the long-term effects of that are becoming painfully evident. Looking forward to recovering and being able to do the "cute panty" shopping as a reward for getting through, and really looking forward to feeling better (know my DH is looking for that as well - it's a wonder he hasn't kicked me to the curb yet!!).

Keep positive thoughts, ladies!! It's what's getting me through, and I know I can do this!!

My LAVH is on the 14th and I am finally starting to get excited (still nervous though) because of the reasons you just listed. Yay for no more Vicodin!!!!

Re: 10 Reasons why I'm looking forward to surgery next week.

Glad to hear others are excited for surgery too. Most people look at you weird when you say you're looking forward to it. But most people don't understand the mess, the pain, the inconvenience of not being able to go places like other people. I'm sick to death of the sight of "blood in the bowl" and can't wait for next week!
