Re: 2 days until.....

I have a question for you. With the divinci option for the surgery, are you going to be able to go home that same day? is it similar to a laproscopy? im having total abdominal so im in hospital for 3 1/2 days. looking forward to getting pampered and waited on hand and food at the hospital but totally not looking forward to the cathedar and the food! jello is not food people. if it jiggles its not food. lol

[quote=MegsP;3723855]Oh my you have had time to prepare. I think I would go crazy if I had to wait any long than 2 weeks.
My surgery is at 8am and I have to be there at 6am. I am glad it is early but it will be a little tough on my little one. She will be in the waiting room with hubby.
Yeah I will call the dr on if mine shows and see what he says. from what I have read your right it shouldnt matter so that makes me feel better.

Re: 2 days until.....

good evening to you. i think all of us are starting to get nervous now that our surgeries are getting closer. the weird thing with me is my surgery is such a big and extravagant surgery it hasnt settled in to my brain yet that its getting done. by that i mean it doesnt feel real. it will probably settle the day of the operation. you say you are removing both. by both what do you mean? cervix and uterus or ovaries? im getting rid of uterus and cervix and keeping both ovaries. i could have gotten the dvh or laporoscopy but i chose the abdominal total hysterectomy because something i learned from my many hours of research is that abdominal has fewer chances of complications and other risks than the others. not meaning to make you more nervous in any manner. ive had robot assisted surgeries before. i just feel more comfortable with mine. plus, im looking forward to the 3 nights in the hospital getting pampered and waited on hand and foot. it will be like im on vacation from home haha. thats nice that you will get to go home the same day. recovery must be quite short too. just remember you can still overdo it even with the more minor surgeries so take it easy! my hunney wont be there the day of. my mom is taking me so i have a girl with me since its a "girl" thing. i wanted her with me, plus shes had a hysterectomy so she will know what ill be going through. shes going to spend the night in case i get upset or need to talk or whatever. then shes going home the next day and that day my hunney and daughter are coming to spend some time with me. ill be more coherant and hooked up to less stuff then so its not scary for her. were going to do a make over on each other. well gotta go repack my hospital bag since ive added to it. sorry so long, felt like chatting. big hugs

Re: 2 days until.....

Morning.
I am having the surgery for severe pains from Adhesions so they are taking cervix, uterus, both ovaries tubes the whole shabang. I will be empty. LOL For some strange reason I guess because I have been in pain for so long I am ok with being "empty" and more than ready. I think the only emotional part for me is my daughter. I wish I had someone here to stay home with her so she didnt have to see mommy in surgery again. I had a lap done in December.
She was fine last time I just worry about her seeing mommy all hooked up and stuff. It makes me a little sad she is so young and sees this. But it is what it is.

I hear ya on the hospital recovery vacation! LOL Sometimes I wish I were staying a night so it would be a little more rest for me and my hubby but I am ok with coming home too. I just hope I sleep alot when I get home.

Your right everyone keeps telling me you will feel great really fast but DONT over do it. So I have given the hubby strict orders to hurt my feelings if need be and put me back in bed if I get all "I am great lets do...." So I should be ok. LOL

Re: 2 days until.....

what are adhesions? im having mine due to severe pains, ovarian cysts, really abnormal periods, the list goes on. i was expecting to have my ovaries removed but the surgeon said she wouldnt take them cuz if she did because of how young i am, i would be at a high risk of heart attack if i went into menopause. so just getting rid of cervix, uterus, and tieing my tubes. how old did you say you were? arent you year younger than me? sorry horrible memory. yah at first i wanted my daughter there the day of the surgery so i could have her with me, but i got too worried about her seeing me hooked up to all the machines plus if i get sad or upset or anything i didnt want her seeing me like that. so its just my mom going the day of, spending the night then my hunney and daughter are coming the next day to see me. will work better that way. her and i have plans to play beauty shop there.

Re: 2 days until.....

The closer it gets for me the more I start wondering if I really want to go through it. I have the support of my friends but my bf doesn't want to talk about it. He will be with me through surgery and stay in the hospital with me. I made the mistake of looking on youtube at the procedure. I don't recommend it. Now I am more scared of it and having second thoughts.

Re: 2 days until.....

the closer i get the more nervous i get too, its normal. do you have to have the surgery? is it needed for medical problems? if so, go through with it. its normal to have second thoughts. but you will feel better afterwards knowing you wont have to deal with the problems anymore. i too started watching a video on the procedure. im getting a total abdominal. only lasted 10 seconds. was too graphic and gross. dont be scared, we are here for you! when is your surgery?

Re: 2 days until.....

I have endometriosiss. Yes it is necessary. I am looking forward to no more pain. Thats for sure. I am going to the castle on wendsday. There is a possibility that my dr might have to go abdominal. I think it would be easier if I knew for sure which way he was going to go. I lasted through two ten miniute movies and got grossed out and scared. I am here for you guys too. I think we are the only ones that fully understand what we are going through and feeling about this.

Re: 2 days until.....

hi there. yah thats the thing i am looking forward to the most is no more pain. that and no more periods. i just started my very last period of my lifetime today. happy about it but also kinda sad. i always remind myself that when i want more babies i will adopt so i can help a child get a good home and family, but its still tough knowing i wont be able to physically have anymore kids from myself. Good luck wednesday!! You will do great. You are a strong, Phenomenal womann who can get through anything shining like a star. mine is next tuesday the 10th. wish it would hurry up and get here. yah my surgeon originally wanted to do it laproscopically and vaginally but i requested to get it done abdominally. less risks for complications plus if she finds something else that is wrong it will be easier for her to get to it. plus its a bonus to be able to stay in the hospital those 3 1/2 days. will be like a mini vacation except for the food haha. thank you for being here for me too. it means a lot. and i agree completely. there are many out there that do not support our decisions and say were making a big mistake but they truly dont know what we are going through and if they were in our situation they would probably do the same thing.
