I now have a date

Hey Everybody!. Not sure if you remember me (haven't been on here in a while) but I came here around the end of January because I was having an ablation and then a hysterectomy shortly after. Reason: Extremely heavy/long periods (nothing has helped) and low grade dysplasia. Well I got a call around the end of February with my date which is April 13th. There has been a few small issues here and there which is why I haven't come here to post my date yet. (wasn't sure if April 13th was still going to be my date or not). Well early this morning I got a call from my doctor letting me know that April 13th will MOST LIKELY be the date but it may have to be pushed back another 2 weeks at the most. She told me I will be finding out for sure at my pre-op this coming Tuesday (the 20th). But none the less, I am now scheduled for my laproscopic hysterectomy which will either be on April 13th or roughly about 2 weeks later (will def come back to update when I know). They will be leaving my ovaries but taking my uterus and my cervix since I do have the dysplasia. I also go into the hospital this coming Wednesday (the 21st) for pre-testing.

I do have a small question for you ladies . Can you please share any questions you asked your doctor or suggestions of questions I should ask at my pre-op on Tuesday?. If you can share that, it would be greatly appreciated!.

Thank you

Re: I now have a date

Hello,

After reading your posts, I cannot imagine having these problems at such a young age. Your profile doesn't show where you live, but I assume you went for a second opinion on your case. The best place would be a large university teaching hospital.

As far as questions, I assume you have had a chance to review what the ladies here have suggested. There is a section with questions to ask your doctor. If you can't find it, ask for help. The most important thing is to take care of you. I know you have two young children and hope that someone is going to help take care of them and also any housecleaning, etc., needed during your recovery.

You are in the right place for opinions about the surgery and subsequent recovery. More importantly is that you listen to your doctor's advice. The information provided here are opinions only and not medical advice.

I am 12 years form my surgery and doing well.
