Re: how long?

I don't see the surgeon until the end of April and can only hope my surgery can be scheduled as quickly as 2 weeks. My doctor said it shouldn't be too long after seeing the surgeon, but sometimes "not too long" in the medical world seems like ages to me. Good luck!

Re: how long?

thank you ladies for making me feel better, i was kind worried she was rushing because the tumor might be more than fibroids

Re: how long?

I only had 2 weeks to prepare and to be honest I think it's better less time to think. They could of done it last week but I panicked a bit but sorry now as it would be over and done with now. (never mind I have it on Thursday can't wait till Friday when it will be all over haha) I have read so much on here some of it has been really comforting and some terrifying but I guess everyone is different.

Re: how long?

I saw the surgeon on Tuesday to schedule, and I could have had the surgery TODAY. I chose to wait another week or 2 due to family schedule reasons. It all depends on the surgeon and the hospital!

Re: how long?

I saw my doc to discuss surgery at the end on January and I am scheduled for the second week in May.

I'm not dealing with a cancerous or otherwise life-threatening-to-wait-a-little longer situation, it's a quality of life decision and due to my age (30 and no kids) my doc and I agreed there is no need to rush it. Plus, I am a teacher so I wanted to get through as much of the school year as I could handle while not ruining my life trying to be a hero in the process.

My situation escalated pretty quickly and I feel like it just got dumped on my, so I have been going to counseling to wrap my head around things and give myself time to make sure I'm sure. Trust me, since the last time I saw my doc I am sure and then some! Hubs and I have considered moving up the date but we think I can make it 4 more weeks. That way, I also have a nice cushion of recovery time before school starts back in August.

Re: how long?

My appt was on 3/22 and I tried to get them to do it in June, and they said they wanted to get it done sooner rather than later. Then they said "We schedule 4 weeks out". Okayyy...I scheduled it May 2 because my husband thought he'd be out the last week of Apr.

Re: how long?

Mine was scheduled in 6 days. It was not suspected that I had cancer.
Although it was very rushed, I was glad I didn't have weeks/months to sit around and worry about everything. Believe me, the few days I did worry was enough!

Re: how long?

When we discused it on April 2, I could have done it tomorrow (8 days) but have a Dance competition, then a Tumbling State competition the following week for my kids, so I waited 3 weeks. Now I have 2 weeks and I cant wait. Its more of a quality of life issue for me as well as a nasty ovary that keeps producing nasty cysts.

Re: how long?

It took a long while to see the Surgeon... Like months but as soon as I saw her it took less than a week to have the surgery...
In fact I think it was only 5 days...
I nearly had time to think...
I did not think much of it because she had a cancelation maybe it is the same for you...

Re: how long?

I had a one week notice. Then they ended up canceling the day of and was rescheduled for 4 days later. I'm not a patient person, so I was grateful.
