Signed off today

Had my last dr appointment today. I signed the consent. Dr will take my uterus and my cervix. He plans on leaving my ovaries, but will take them if they don't look healthy while he is in there. I do not have to do any bowel prep, just shower with dial soap that morning. I will be in the hospital for @ 3-4 days. Surgery will last 3-4 hours. They will give me a belly binder at the hospital. I will be catheterized when I wake up. Both the dr who have been treating me will be doing the surgery together. I know I am in very good hands and I hope things turn out for the best.

Looking forward to not bleeding,not being in pain, having energy and having a sex life

I will be thinking about you both. You've already dealt with a lot of difficulty, and that's why you are now facing the surgery. On the other side, there is a recovery period, and then being able to jump fully back into a rich life. Keep us posted!
