Re: Anxiety and fear...??

I too am having anxiety! I was soooooo excited until after my preop appt Wednesday and now I just want to cry....and did on the phone with my momma when I realized how I had to use the enema :-0. Surgery day is Monday and I feel totally unprepared! Even though the only thing I have left to do is laundry, put my pretty new comforter on, and pack my bag...oh and my I just want it to be over!

Re: Anxiety and fear...??

I am really scared. I need another biopsy before the Dr will preform my surgery on April 6th. I have a fibroid and cysts on my ovaries. I had a biopsy last week but my cervix was plugged, what the heck? I look four months pregnant. I have gained 15 pounds in the last 6 months. I leak something out everyday like water or something? This is very personal and embarrassing. Anyone out there?

Dear Nervousd---I am now the other side of my SAH and I am doing OK. Much happier than I was during the waiting. I am 10 days pre op walking around, allowed to drive and just moving awkwardly.

I have been trying to stay busy now that I made the decision to have TAH and set a date. I am working out more to keep my stress level down. I still have two months before my surgery. I see my GYN again in six weeks.

I remind myself that I will feel so much better physically when this is all over so the mental stress now is just a part of the course. Stay encouraged. God is in control.

Re: Anxiety and fear...??

I had my SILS this morning. I am very happy to report that my anxiety & fear were all for nothing. I am now 13 hours post op & only just agreed to pain meds about an hour ago. I am sore, but not really in pain. Mostly agreed to the meds to just help me sleep a little more comfortably.

My nurses have been great. No nausea at all & only minimal gas discomfort. Just take it easy, rest, relax & drink plenty of water the day before (I got dehydrated). Good luck to you all!

Re: Anxiety and fear...??

I had mine the 15th and while I agree that the fear and anxiety were all normal, I must say I still cannot sit, I have stitches from my rectum all the way to my private, my procedure was done vaginally and while I feel good, I am limited on the things I can do because I am no even two weeks post-op. Everybody is different and trully I came home with an order to take Advil, he did not prescribe any hardcore meds, so far so good. Good to hear you are doing well

I feel the same way. I am scheduled for next Tuesday and I feel like an emotional wreck. But I will keep you in my prayers.

Re: Anxiety and fear...??

I get nervous like that too. My husband says I get I consolable. I know I allow myself to get consumed with fear etc. if I ask myself what am I afraid of really I can't answer it. Maybe pain, maybe my privacy cause I'm so modest etc. what I find helps is a support system, like this site. Someone or a group of someone's that are there day or night to laugh cry and just be there. I get worse if I feel alone. And sometimes it when I try to talk to people I thought were friends and they didn't seem to care it saddened me. Once I found this site and realized it was ok for people not to listen and to just take care of me I started feeling better. This site esp. Where else can u joke around about heVy periods one min and be scared the Next.
What I am saying getting terrified is ok and "normal" because everything is normal and adnormal depending who u talk to.
Contact me whenever ur fears get the best of u. I will listen, cry with u or laugh with u to help get u through. We all need a sister.
