Surgery Tomorrow....yikes!

I can't believe my "new me" begins tomorrow. I am excited, nervous, scared and oddly sad. It would be easier if I wasn't sad.

Thankful for this site & all my sisters. I have a great husband - very supportive & he listens well but doesn't quite get how big a deal this is. I guess he thinks it's more like the 5 prior laps I've had for endo...

Anyway - like I said ... Wish I wasn't sad & hoping it doesn't turn into something more like depression. I know this is the best decision for me. My quality of life was not good. Looking forward to my new found FREEDOM!

Almost a princess....

Re: Surgery Tomorrow....yikes!

I'm right there with ya! My surgery is in the morning at 7:30am, they're taking my uterus, ovaries, the whole 9 yards. I'm feeling a little sad about it all too, I think it's normal. I'm 37 and have had my children... but knowing it's not even an option for more, is breaking my heart. I had my last period last week, and I actually cried as it began to dissipate. *sigh* bitter sweet I guess. Good luck to you hun! I'll be praying for you! See ya on the other side! *HUGS*

Good luck to everyone, just focus on a better healthier life after your op and you will recover well. I still can't believe that I will never get my period again, I think it will take months before I am convinced.

Re: Surgery Tomorrow....yikes!

AZSunTini, How are you doing hun?! I haven't been online until today, since Thursday's surgery. I wanted to check in on you. I hope that you are getting lots of rest and recovering well! My surgery went well, I think the most annoying thing is this binder wrapped around my tummy. No wound care either, the bandage comes off Thursday when the Doc removes the staples. I thought that was pretty great. lol Write when you can and let us know how you're doing.

Kagolemon, thank you for your well wishes. I'm okay so far, no emotional outbursts or bouts of saddness. I had a lot of it before surgery. I may just be so focused on healing that I'm not thinking about everything that I was before. I'm hoping that now that surgery is over, that I'm cured of my pre-surgery saddness. We shall see So far, so good!

Re: Surgery Tomorrow....yikes!

Hi Simplicity2011 -

I am 5 days post-op today. Doing pretty good actually (don't tell DH and DD) My biggest struggle has been how tired I am, if I didn't know better, I would think I am narcoleptic..LOL! Barely taking my pain meds (just at bed time) not even taken ibuprofen. I wish there was more I could do, taking down Christmas tree, decorations and lights... I guess I am a bit of a control freak, it's hard to let go. Also my floors need vaccumed badly (2 dogs - boxer and black lab). Oh well, I just keep telling myself that it is ok to be lazy, in fact it is exactly what the Dr. ordered. I am thinking of going for a short walk later today. It is nearly 80 degress outside (it's January!). I think the fresh air will feel great!

I haven't had any outbursts since surgery, although I have been a bit weepy here and there. I still don't think that the magnatude of what my body has endured has fully processed yet. I am still counting on an outburst in my near future.

Glad to hear you are doing well yourself. I wish you continued health and recovery.
