Just got my surgery date

My surgery date just came through, it's only 5 weeks from my initial consultation, I'm having a total hysterectomy- uterus and cervix though they hope not to touch my ovaries despite one having a sizeable cyst. The size of my uterus means I have to have abdominal incision. I'm in discomfort 24/7 from my fibroids and my periods are horrendous so a lot of me is looking forward to a permanent solution to the symptoms, but this will be my 6th GA my most recent being massive spinal surgery two years ago so the memory of dealing with that first week of main management is very fresh. Plus whilst I want rid of this bit of me that's so dysfunctional, I am mourning it's loss. Such conflicting emotions- its not as though I would have considered more children- mine are 9&11 and two is perfect, but suddenly I'm overjoyed to be getting permanent treatment while at the same time sad that it's going. Losing my cervix is odd too, just starting a new relationship after many years without sex-typical!!! Any advice? Xxx
