How long did you have to wait for your hysterectomy?

I know everyone is different, but once you decided to have the hysterectomy, how many months did you have to wait to get it done?

I have graduated to the side of not functioning, extreme pain, constant bleeding, etc.....I know I am not alone.

I am lucky in that a gyno had a cancellation and I see her tomorrow.

I hope I don't have to wait until next year.

Re: How long did you have to wait for your surgery?

My dr mentioned hysterectomy after the first ultrasound back in June, but we decided to try a less invasive approach first. Then the bladder issues hit in July and after talking to my dr, we decided to go ahead with the surgery. The next day, the surgery department was calling me to set a date, which was originally in November. But I had a second ultrasound done in September which showed rapid growth of the fibroids so my surgery got moved up to Oct 20th. So really I didn't have to wait that long, once things got moving, they moved fast

I scheduled mine 3 months out as it worked with my schedule.

However, I could have done it as soon as the following week.

Mine was scheduled a month after my doctor and I made the decision. He wanted to leave a little time for me to be absolutely sure that I'm comfortable with not having kids.

Oh, those wait times aren't too bad. I have not had an u/s since last November and I know my fibroid has grown a lot in the last few months as so has my abdomen. Maybe I can have it for Christmas LOL!

Re: How long did you have to wait for your surgery?

I was originally going to have my third LEEP and my tubes tied but decided there is no point in keeping everything when I'm done having kids and my cervical dysplasia is constantly recurring, once I decided that, my surgery was scheduled for 3 weeks later. I could have even had it done the week after I decided but my DH needed to take off work.

Re: How long did you have to wait for your surgery?

My surgeon only operates on Thursdays. I saw him the first part of September, and my hysterectomy was scheduled for seven weeks later - so he was booked up for almost two months out. I would have loved to have gotten in a couple of weeks earlier. It does take a few weeks to get the paperwork done with insurance and get the pre-op testing done, unless of course it's an emergency situation.

What kind of pre op testing do we have to have for this?

I went in for a physical with my primary physician and just had my hemoglobin checked, that was it. Oh I did have a pelvic exam with my surgeon before as well to figure out which surgery would be easiest for me.

I've been in pain on and off for three years. However, it has only gotten unbearable in the last three months. Once a hysterectomy was decided on this month, my surgery was scheduled for next month. Praying for a speedy surgery for you.
