Re: I am a mess

Nonna4 ......... so you only had fibroids? No cancer? Thank you for the encouragement and I am glad you are doing so well. Yes this is terrifying. I KNOW God is in control but still I struggle. I cannot wait until like you, I can encourage others. I need you all and I do so want to give back when I am on the other side of this. Today I am sitting here sobbing again.

Re: I am a mess

Actually Vonny123 on Tuesday I am just having the biopsy (D&C) under anesthesia. I am so stressed about it that I am not sure how I will get thru a hysterectomy. How long ago did you have yours? Was it incisional?

I am sorry you are now dealing with a new health problem. I will pray that it is not anything serious and that you will have relief from the anxiety.

You might be sore for a few days but I was running in a week.after my.first procedure, and thank.you for the prayers as im praying for you, I did this morning running with god, yep.hes a runner.and he wears nikes hahaha hope that.made you smile, I dont know what this lump is and hopefully its nothing, so if they.go in are they prepard to do a hyst if needed, is that an option.say.hey if its got to come out.why go.through.it twice.do you have family to help you.

Re: I am a mess

Thank you Vonnie123. You had a robotic? I have one the size of a grapefruit so I don't think that is an option for me. I wish it were. I also wish I were braver and I wish I didn't have such a huge imagination. I feel very down in the dumps this evening. Will I ever be light hearted again?

Re: I am a mess

NotBrave, I think you're over-thinking. I know it's hard not to do this. But I think it's important that you find something to preoccupy your mind a little. Get out as much as possible since you will be housebound post op. Try reading, I find it hard to worry about stuff when I'm reading. I stressed and over-thought too, but it seems that you are having a particularly difficult time. Go for a walk and concentrate on eating healthy so you go into surgery as strong as possible.

Re: I am a mess

NotBrave -

I had a very large complex cyst (12 x 9 x 11 cm) on my left ovary - about the size of a very, very large great fruit. The cyst grew that size in less than a year. I also had numerous fibroids. A gyn onc did my surgery - TAH BSO. All pathology was done while I was in the OR, and all turned out benign. I also had numerous fibroids that also swelled my uterus. Those were also benign.

I know it is scary to have these things growing inside you, but don't get ahead of your diagnosis. We are here for you sweetie, and we will get you through this...

Re: I am a mess

You are all angels! This is exactly what I need to hear to keep myself from going off the deep end with my imagination. To know things looked scary for you but it was all well really helps me. And to hear it wasn't real scary and it was indeed ok is good to hear too. Yes I do overthink! I can get so blinded by fear that it polarizes me. I am working very hard to not do this. I just hate it when it is at it's worse and I am struggling terribly to keep from going under. Thank you again and again.
