Dr. appt today

Well I met with the Dr. today. We confirmed my appt date of 6/4 and he said it would be around 1pm. Darn, I wanted 8am but he has clinic in the morning so it has to be 1:00. It's going to be a long wait that morning. I was given a packet for pre-op. I have no particular date for pre-op, just some time in the next 3 weeks.

He said because of my age, he strongly suggests removing my ovaries. Take everything. So I'll be having a TAH/BSO. Also, because of previous kidney surgery and 2 C-sections, there may be a lot of scar tissue inside and after starting with a bikini horizontal cut, he may find he has to do the verticle cut also. Then I'd have an anchor! I've had many surgeries, so he's going to have to think about it beforehand. I'm not anxious for extra cuts if I don't have to. I probably won't know until I wake up!

so the countdown starts....

Hi TexasChick,

I'm glad that your date has been confirmed - it is too bad that you'll have to wait until 1 PM. Maybe someone will cancel out and they'll reschedule you for earlier in that day.

I'll hope that he can do the bikini cut, only, but you've got a great outlook on it, even with the possibililty of ending up with an anchor-shaped scar

Good luck!
