I was the same way before my surgery. It will be over very soon. I am 3 weeks and 1 day post op, and already feel 150% better than I did before the surgery!! Hang in there! Prayers for you now, and your upcoming surgery with recovery!!

Re: Help! I need somebody

I was so terrified I was shaking the day of. The night before I kept saying "blah I don't want to do this!" I kept saying that right up to the versed. I am 4 weeks after my LAVH today and so far life on this side has not been too bad. I can tell you on this side I feel like a giant anvil was pulled off my chest. I won't lie, I've had a few times on this side that have not been easy, but so far those have been far and few and get further everyday.

Re: Help! I need somebody

I will keep you in my thoughts as your big day nears -- I am 2 weeks pre-op and so nervous as well. I have no words of wisdom at this point since I am not there yet, but the words of all these kind women is so reassuring! Good LUCK!

Re: Help! I need somebody

Rene ,
You will do fine and you have prayers coming your way from me as well.

When I was going in for my hip replacement surgery, I remember praying for my surgeion that he would be sharp and to bless his hands and mind with the skills they were trained with." and asked that my mom to come and be with me and that helped keep me calm. (my mom passed almost a year before my surgery)

I'm just counting down the day (41) till my surgery b/c I'm just over all the crap that I'm feeling and dealing with.

Prayers and ((((hugs))))

Re: Help! I need somebody

Just had my hysterectomy on Monday 1/30/12 went in that morning a nervous wreck. In surgery for 4 1/2 hours I had lots of scar tissue the procedure did go from LVAH to a TAH. Today is day 4 still in pain I wish I was able to say it was not that bad I think my part is just the incision that is hurting me.
