Feeling Unsure :confused:

I am really glad to know that I am not the only one who is scared about my decision. My surgery is schedules for 3/06 everyone I know is like you are way to young to have this done(26), but I just keep thinking once it's all over it will have all been worth it and if I can make it thru the next 2 weeks it will all work out. Thanks to everyone for all the support and information.

Feeling Unsure :confused:

I am so glad I read your post. I am scheduled for LAVH on Mar 2 and I am not feeling so good about it.

I seem to have a couple of good months and feel like I should just ride out the storm until menopause (probably misspelled it!) and then my periods get bad again. I had the Thermal Balloon procedure which was suppose to stop my periods but did not work.

I have the mother-in-law from hell. We call her Endora... (Bewitched!) She is rather opinionated, controlling, and manipulative! We haven't said anything to her about the surgery until last week because I will need the help with the kids. My family is very supportive but "Endora", well, she is really on my case for having the surgery. She went to the library and brought me a pile of books with post-it's tagging the "important" parts that I should read!!! This made me start to question my decision.

The closer the time comes the more uncomfortable I get. I know this is all nerves I will be glad when it is all over!!! It is so nice to have a place to vent your feelings and have someone listen to you and support you. I plan to spend a lot of time online getting all the hugs I can.

God bless you and take care,

Tell Endora in her own language

People like Endora really do mean well and have no clue why anyone else can't see things as she does ... so, to those feelings we must remain loving, but she sounds as if she needs her own dose of opinionating fed back. How to do it ...

"Check off" all the sticky-noted sections, hand them all back, let her know that while you're not comfortable discussing all the reasons for your decisions any further, you appreciate her making certain that your decision was well informed ... and that your decision for your body has been made. Counter objections by repeating the above as if your speech is a broken record ... final, well-informed ("thanks") decision is made, and that's that.

Enlist the support of your husband, letting him know, of course, that his mom's feelings are important, but right now, "we" need to back her off.

Good luck.
