Pre Op Nerves

I am sure this has been addressed in other forums but I am feeling nervous with my surgery a week and a half away.

I am 42 years old. No menopause symptoms at all. Both my grandmothers had babies in the latter half of their forties so no real idea when it would happen. I have a grown son and due to secondary infertility he is my only one.

I have large fibroids and cysts on both ovaries. The one on my left is 11cm and quite painful. I have no concerns about the surgery itself. The doctor is going to try the da Vinci method first, but has already said that with the cyst an abdominal procedure is probably what will happen.

There is a family history, my mom and older sister both had hysterectomies close to my age. I am really worried about menopause after surgery. I am a bit of an emotional wreck during my horrible periods and am hoping this doesn't escalate the situation. I can barely watch the news without bawling my eyes out.

I am under a lot stress outside of home as I am head of a department at work and being pushed to get things done before I leave. Without having a concrete return date, doctor estimates 4 to 10 weeks, things are up in the air. I am worried this will make it harder to relax and just recover.

Basically needing reassurance.

Re: Pre Op Nerves

My surgery is six weeks away and I'm also a wreck. I'm trying to fill my days with fun so I don't have time to worry. Work is a stress for me as well. They were supposed to be hiring someone to fill in for me while I'm out and then move into a different position. There really is a minimum of a six week training period for my job (I sit onsite at a client) and they haven't even started interviewing yet. I'm going to try to not worry about work while I'm out but it will be hard. Hang in there - soon we'll both be back and work, with this behind us.

Re: Pre Op Nerves

I too worried about work, but when I talked to my boss his reaction was that the building would still function with or without me. He said my health and family came first. He said he was glad I was finally taking care of myself and he didnt want me to worry about work at all.

We have to remember we are wives and mothers first. They need us more than work. I was so happy my boss was so understanding.
