Re: Not sure what I should do now?

Hello ladies..was just reading your post and thought ide share a few things with you ime now 5wks post op from lavh-leaving ovaries, and ime so very glad i had the surgery...But before my surgery i totally went through all the emotions youre all feeling now, its very normal to be feeling the way your feeling cuz deciding to allow yourself to have major surgery is not something to take lightly and i think all of us here on hystersisters probably took this decision very carefully and did lots of i for one absolutely needed this surgery as i think i only got bout 7days peace from all the pain, mental and physical emotions and upsets that my cycle brought to me every month for like the past 16yrs and so when the time finally came and a gyno finally said to me okay were going to give you a hysterectomy i was like so relieved and scared at same time. so yep about a month before my surgery i was like a crazy women trying to find all the info i could about hysterectomies and once in awhile through my searching hystersisters came up on my pc and ide look at some things they had to say but it just scared the crap outta i stopped lookin on pc and just talked to my friends and pastor bout it and then i calmed down,,and then during the peace times of the month i was like thinking mhm maybe i dont need a hysterectomy, but then here came the horrific cycle which last like forever in that month and let me tell ya thats when i was like all for the surgery and couldnt wait for it. so i was having off and on doubts bout it too..Then a week before my surgery i thought i better get ready for this if ime going to be out of commission for the next 6wks. So i arranged the time off work, then i pre made big pot full of chicken soup which i froze in smaller serving size containers in freezer, stocked up the fridge and cupboards with food stuff and important things to have on hand for after surgery are gravol for nauseausness, tyleno for pain, Gas X for gas, stool softners and prune juice to help with bm, ginger tea, peppermint tea and peppermints to help tummy calm tummy upsets...Ladies thats a little bit of me and what i went through and prepared for...There is oh so much more for when your post op..And i just want to say that yes this site has been such a comforting, peaceful, supportive and loving place for me to be these past few weeks as ive been recovering from this surgery and ime so very thankful that i finally signed in here...So ladies try to be at peace and take one day at a time getting prepared...and again ide like to say i am so glad i went through with the decision to have this surgery. Peace be with you all

Being nervous is perfectly understandable. Just take a deep breath and try to relax. Get lost in a good book or watch a good comedy. Keep your thoughts positive. Good luck with your surgery.

I kept myself very busy so that I didn't drive myself nuts. I know that I would get nervous but I just forced myself to take slow breaths. It was amazing that I would stop breathing when I got nervous. Stay on the pre-op side also so that you don't get scared.
