Waiting...the final days

Believe it or not....my younger brother brought me to this site. He has been so worried, not understanding what is happening.
Short and sweet...March 2001 started with symptons. Dr. says,
"It's because your getting older..." Got worse, 2nd opinion. Hubby goes with me. Fibroids, what is that?? read everything on subject. Decision...surgery. Nervous, tense, emotional...May 21. Thanks for all your imput..sure has helped. Any last words out there??

Waiting...the final days

Hi Purple 22,
As far as I'm concerned, the waiting is the worst part. There is a list on this site of suggestions to take to the hospital and also medications to have on hand at home. What a wonderful help!! For myself, I had colace (the generic is fine and cheaper) stool softener and Gas-X on hand and was very grateful for both. I felt quite lousy at first as had trouble with pain medication, but each week got better, and now, at 8 weeks, I feel back to normal. I have no regrets other than I wish I'd done it 10 years ago!!
Just make sure you don't overdo after surgery--a little here and there is fine, but no heavy lifting or housework until your dr. says it's o.k.
Best of luck to you and how wonderful of your brother to connect you with this site--it's the best!!
