Not Set Yet, but still scared. LONG


I thought I would take the opportunity to introduce myself and my situation.

I am 40 years old and looking at having a hysterectomy soon due to hyperplasia. I recently had my 2nd D&C after 6 months of progesterone to see if we could get this cleaned up without surgery. Unfortuantely my path reports indicate that there is still a problem, but no atypical cells or cancer at this point. Because of my history (colon cancer survivor along with 6 months of chemo) my is reluctantly going to do a hysterectomy. At least that's what he told me during my pre-op. Unfortuantely, because of my past surgeries and the fact that I am very much over weight, this surgery is considered high risk. :caution:

At least my colon cancer has been in remission for almost 3 years now! :

Anyway, how long did most of you have to wait before undergoing surgery? Or did your doctors say it was up to you when you wanted to have it? Personally, for me the sooner the better because then it will be done and over with.

Thank you for reading this. My ers are with all of you.
