2 days to go

Well, the 4/23'ers only have 2 more days to go. Im holding up ok, so far I think. Got some bad nerves still, and have lost 13 lbs since Friday the 12th. Doesn't seem like very long ago when I have gotten my date and was in the chat room here complaining that I had to wait so long to get here, now here I am! It's right around the corner.

I hope everyone else is doing wonderful! We are almost there... soon we will be wearing our crowns!

Hi Amy

Best of luck to you on Tuesday. My thoughts and prayers will be with you and everyone else who has their surgery this week. Mine is scheduled for Friday so I just have to get through this week.

My TAH is scheduled for April 23 also, and I have mixed feelings on one hand I am ready to have this done and over with and on the other am having second, third and fourth thoughts about canceling all together. As they say the waiting is the hardest but I know we will come out okay. Best of luck to you.

Best of Luck to you.
I am scheduled for a TAH on 4/29 and don't know how I am going to make it through the week. My husband was layed off of his job as a systems analyst on Friday and I just got results of an MRI on Thursday. I have a herniated disk!
This week, I have an appt with a neurologist on Tues and my Pre-op on Wednesday.
So many things going on that I wonder if I should consider changing my H date.
Does anyone have any suggestions about recovering from TAH surgery with a herniated disk?

Amy, Amy, Amy,

I'll miss you on this side. Make sure you come back and fill us all in...I guess that is alright to do. If not, I'll check on the other side just in case. I'm so proud that you hung on...and now it's almost over for you. Best of luck to you.

Please call your GYN first thing. I know about a herniated disc and you're going to need time or repair. Let us know what your doctor says.

Good luck to you sisters,

Good Luck to all of you! Thank goodness, I'm on the other side now. Four weeks post op. I know what I was thinking when I was pre-op. It was so hard for me to understand what people meant when they would say, "try not to worry, it's not as bad as you think it is", but that's exactly the advice I'm going to give. I know with me, I had so many things to get straight and take care of prior to surgery that it nearly drove me nuts. I was so anxious. When you start to get too overwhelmed, just take a deep breath and release it slowly. I know its not much, but it always helps me. Anyway.....
