LAH - Surgery is 5/6, Emotions Already Swirling

Hi All,

My last post already mentioned my surgery date. I feel pretty good when reading posts from here, but my mind is almost constantly swirling with sadness, and relief, and worry, etc. The sadness is I probably from being 39,(40 in June), never having kids or being in any relationship. I love kids, but the chance to have them never came in my life. The relief is probably from thinking past the surgery and not having any more pain or bladder problems. The worry may be from the doctor realizing last minute that he cannot complete the surgery without opening me up because of my size. He already said that vaginal is out for sure. I trust him fully, but the emotions are crazy. Also, I plan on going on short trip about 12 days after surgery and it has been planned for months, and I refuse to miss out on it. It means alot to me.
I couldn't accept any of the later surgery dates because I would end up home alone.

I thank all who reply to this post in advance and I know I will feel better.

OMG Judy! I will be 40 in Sept.!I have 3 teens and the thought that I would never be able to give birth again did concern me. I sufffed for over 5 years trying to save my uterus. I gave up the battle and gave up the uterus 3/28/02. No regrets! If I ever want to be a mom to a younger child again. I will adopt!!!!!!!!!!!There are so many children in foster care who need familys to love them.I also had a TAH. They could not do it vaginally either. No regrets. Im doing fine. Well take care and Good luck.Angela

Hi Judy, I can relate to your feeling grief, sadness over the loss of fertility. I was infertile for many years before having children and I agree with the other sisters that adoption is a great thing. There are so many needy children out there looking for a loving, caring home. I'm 38 and have 2 young boys. I've been thinking for about a year to adopt a little girl. Have you ever heard the saying, "You may have not grown under my heart, but in it"?

As your surgery date approaches, feel comfort in knowing that we all are here for you.

adeno, endo, scarring/adhesions, rectocele, enlarged/prolapsed uterus. TAH scheduled for 5/7!
