I am scheduled for a hysterectomy on May 13. I am only 28 and the dr wants to do a complete hysterectomy. I have endometriosis and have had it for quite some time. If anyone wants to give me some good advice or cheerful words, please do so.

Talk to your doc about alternatives, also get a second opinion. You may trust your doc, but a second opinion will ease your mind. If the second one disagrees, don't be afraid to get a third. This is your body and you should be sure you want the surgery, or at least be convinced you need it.

I know it's scary, even when you're prepared and have decided 100% to have it done. Read more posts, talk to doc again, or several docs.

Post op is more frustrating then anything, as you'll want to do stuff and won't have the energy to do it. It just takes time for your body to get back to normal, and then better than normal. Pre op is scary because you have time to think and fear and anticipate. That's the worst part of the whole surgery; the waiting. You'll be fine.

Hi Shawna and s for you!
Like LRemaly says, be sure you consider all of your options. Research and ask questions! HysterSisters is a great place to start. There are also some links out here to web sites that offer good information. You may not feel 100% going into this because there are no guarantees, but with the knowledge and support from women who care, you can feel pretty good about whatever your decisions are!
I found frequent visits to the HS Chat room very satisfying when I needed that 'real time' support. Check it out...you won't be disappointed! I think it is the not knowing what to expect that is the most difficult, but hang in there, post whenever you need or want to and you will do great! All the best to you!
