Hi Bettiee,
Welcome to HysterSisters!! So glad you found us, and you certainly found us in lots of time to do lots of reading and question asking. With surgery on the 29th, that gives you a couple weeks. You will find a great deal of information sharing, support and a whole lots of hugs too!!

Since your pre-op is tomorrow I am copying the link to our list of pre-op questions for you. Its a wonderful list and not everything will apply to you, but it gives a great overview of different questions to ask, as we all know that its hard to think of everything we want to ask when right there with the doctor.

Here is the link to that list for you:

You mentioned weighing your options, and we do have a great forum on the site here called

Options and Alternatives , so perhaps you may like to visit that forum as well and read through some of the postings and post a question there if you like if you are still in the decision stage.

As well on the home page Bettiee, where I got the pre-op list for you, you will find pull down menus if you scroll down the page near the bottom. There you will find a lot of good reading. They are broken down by catagory and right now you are a "Lady in Waiting" since you are pre-op.

And one other great place for reading is the Princesses Tell their Stories Forum where many of the ladies have written about their surgery experience. still have lots of time to ask questions and to read alot about this if after weighing your options you and your Dr. decide this is the best route for you. And we will all be with you every step of the way!

All the best to you Bettiee!!

Welcome bettiee!

Ask the doctor all the questions you can. Write them down ahead of time.

Also valuable for research are the links at the top of this forum. As well as finding out all sorts of info about hysts, there are links to medical glossaries that can help define any terms you are unsure of.

As well, on the main page of this site, there are pull down menus that address specific topics. I know that I found the experiences and opinions of women who had been through it invaluable in the time before my operation. I only had two weeks notice, and only found this site 5 days pre-op! But I'm so glad I did!!

Feel free to post your questions, though for medical advice, consult your doctor.

Best wishes as you ponder.
