One week til TLH! And getting nervous!

I have started my one week count down! I was questioning if this was the best decision for me because so many people have said that I was too young (27) and that I should do less invasive things first. Then I woke up looking like I was 5 months pregnant (I normally wear a size 3 and couldn't button up a size 10) and decided that YES this is the best for me! But now I realized I haven't done ANYTHING to prepare! EEEK!

I think the most preparation for me has been mental actually. I just packed a small bag. My surgery is in the morning. double eeek!

Holly, I wish I'd had this done at 27, but it took almost a decade more to get to a point where everyone agreed it was the necessary thing, and I have no regrets at all. Even if recovery feels like it's taking forever some days.

I'm glad you are happy with your decision too. Preparing for me - I worked until the day before so I'd be too busy to think about it. That was best for me, but not for everyone. Good luck - this time next week will be here before you know it!

Had mine yesterday morning, a TVH BSO, and started on hormones today. I will keep you all posted. I am 45 and was terrified and still hope I made the right decision. :-)

I think you are making the right decision, even if you are much younger than most. I have friends who had it done at your age and said it was the best thing they ever did. So try not to worry, mine was yesterday and besides the bloating, I am doing very well! Hang in there and keep me posted.

Thank you Kristi! Even though I am only 27, being diagnosed with CINIII, CIS, endometriosis, and possibly premenopausal (having hot flashes and night sweats, waiting on blood work to show if I do or not) I feel like I am in my 50's! It would be nice to actually feel my age again! Lol please keep me posted on how your recovery is going!

Good luck! I am 10 days out and the anxiety is just starting to set in! Trying to get all my Christmas stuff done just in case I am not feeling up to it after.
