Surgery 12/30 Anxious!!!!

I am 44 yrs old and have a scheduled LSH keeping my ovaries n cervix scheduled tomorrow, due to a 7cm fibroid, heavy bleeding etc. I come from a line of women that have had hysters due to fibroids before the age of 35 yrs... I am blessed to have had two beautiful children prior to this.. Tonite is bittersweet for I take this journey to the castle I am anxious but happy that I was able to have a choice regarding ,the surgery due to how far technology has come!!!!

Good Luck and Blessings to all the Princess who are also taking this road to period free, pain free life!!!!

Best of luck to you! I had that surgery on the 19th. I feel good today. Just start your stool softeners after surgrery and keep them going until you are done with all the meds. The waiting for the surgery was the worst.

Best of luck to you, I had my surgery 9 days ago, recovering slowly but surely. I am also 44, and had a fibroid as large as my uterus on top of it and several smaller tucked under. Just think no more messes every month!!!

I am 44 too and had LAVH on December 22nd. Try to relax because they will take great care of you in the hospital and you will be home recovering before you know it. I had very little pain or discomfort after surgery nor have I had any at home. I am a week post surgery. I am trying to rest and recover and not do any bending or lifting. Good Luck to you! The waiting is the worst but it will be over soon.

I'm 43 and had a fibroid the size of a grapefruit. All will go well. I didn't have much pain, just discomfort mostly and now some pangs due to healing. Yes, take your stool softeners early!!

I just had the same exact surgery...only my fibroid was smaller.. and I am now 21 days post op. You will do welll, and once you pass the 14 day mark the recovery really starts to speed up.

Best wishes...let us know how you are!

Re: Surgery 12/30 Anxious!!!!

Good luck to you, you will do great. The worst part is the 36 hours before surgery. Staying busy helps. I am about 36 hrs post-op and doing alright. I am a little suprised I am not in more pain, but I am sure that the percocet is helping that. I recommend taking gas-x and stool softener with you to the hospital and begin taking them as soon as you are able.

The nurses and staff took great care of me and they will you too!
See you on the other side.
