Re: lost it...

I am new to all this. Mine is scheduled for the 19th so I can relate to the stress. I deal with stress by getting everything in order too cleaning, organizing etc. It can be frustrating when others don't get it. Remember to take time to get things ready for you and your stay. I hope everything goes well for you!!

Re: lost it...

Mine was 10 days before Christmas. I was so afraid that everything would fall apart at the house if I wasn't right on top of things. I PROMISE though....it will all fall into place. I am still recovering and the house is still standing! Just let others pamper you and focus on your recovery once your are home and for now....relax and know that everything will be ok.

Re: lost it...

My surgery is the day after tomorrow. Yesterday I cried several times. I really do think it's the stress of the impending surgery. It's even harder dealing with it on top of the holidays. I'm not overly nervous as this will be the 5th time I have had Gyn surgery but nonetheless, it is stressful.

As someone who has been through this several times, my experience has been it is very common to 'lost it' at least once post-op as well. Nerves, hormones, stress...it all adds up. Good luck to everyone!

Even though I'm a neat freak, trust me, I couldn't care less about the dust and dirty laundry post op. You are strong, amazing women. You can do this! We'll see you on the other side.
Im also starting to worry if im doing the right thing. How did you get passed this?

Re: lost it...

Honey I'm sorry to say that @ 6 months post op I still haven't got past it. I just do my best each day.

All you can do is trust in your doctor, get a second opinion and do your research. There are a lot of unknowns with this surgery. I didn't even know if I was keeping my ovaries when I was wheeled into OR. And I didn't know if there was adenomyosis until a couple weeks after my uterus was removed. We don't know if we'll recover fast or slowly, when we can return to work... The list goes on. At some point you need to put all those worries and what if's aside and trust in yourself, or your doctor, or in God that you are doing the right thing. I wish you the best :-)
