Headed for pre-op appt. today ~ nervous

Getting a bit nervous - my surgery is not until January 12th but I am going in for my pre-op today at the gyn. Have my list of questions ready to go. I am having the hysterectomy because I have metastatic breast cancer and the lupron shot is not keeping me in menopause which is allowing estrogen which is a no-no since my cancer is estrogen positive. With the lupron not working I have also been having lots of cramping, spasms, and intestinal issues. So I am ready to have this done just nervous. Been through all the scans last week and will see the oncologist on Thursday to make sure the cancer is behaving well enough to proceed with surgery. Trying to prepare as much as possible but as it gets closer the nerves are creeping in. Reading everyone comments is helping so much though! I am thankful for all of you ladies!

Re: Headed for pre-op appt. today ~ nervous

To me the anxiety prior to surgery was the worst part. This of course is nothing new to the nurses at the hospital. After getting me into my hospital gown they gave me a shot in the hip (not painful) of an anti-anxiety med. Also they were well aware that people are nervous about starting the IV. Again, they took great care to numb the area first with a cold spray and again, no pain. By the time they took me to the OR, I was so much more relaxed because of the great pains they took to make me comfortable. When they said, " ready to go", I was! Next thing I knew, I was in recovery and they were taking me to my room! So even though you will be nervous, it will be just fine.
