Why did I watch Hysterectomy videos?

Holy Moly. I YouTubed hysterectomy surgery tonight. I watched DaVinci and open surgery. The robotic was amazing to watch but ladies, this is definitely a major deal we have been thru! And the morcillator, OMG. It looks as bad as it sounds. It almost (almost) made me glad to have cancer, since it wasn't used on me. My surgery was DaVinci turned Open so I was lucky to get the full experience. Ha-ha! Now I need some ginger ale and a saltine. And pain meds. Listen to your doctor and take it slow and easy. Your body knows best - 6-8 weeks is not one size fits all.

Re: Why did I YouTube Hysterectomy?

Hi
I did the same thing. I wanted to know what did the doctor do to me. I was cut from hip to hip and the incision on the out side was glued closed. Some time I still YouTube the videos to remind myself of what I have came through.

Take care of yourself

Re: Why did I watch Hysterectomy videos?

I'm so thankful I didn't know/watch any videos prior to surgery. I may have backed out. I have a hard enough time listening to people who use graphic detail when they describe procedures they've been through. I even have to cover my eyes/turn my head when watching Grey's Anatomy. lol!

Re: Why did I watch Hysterectomy videos?

I wouldn't let anyone explain the procedure to me. People let small details slip and I'd stop them. My imagination is too crazy to know so much

Re: Why did I watch Hysterectomy videos?

I did too!! And the thing is... Normally I don't blink an eye at surgery but after watching how they do it... I was a nervous wreck!! I got myself worked up for real. I think it made the whole experience harder to get through honestly..
I don't recommend anyone watch it especially if they are going in for the surgery!

Best of luck in your recovery! I'm 4 weeks post now!!

Re: Why did I watch Hysterectomy videos?

I watched a you tube video before my surgery. I think it helped me understand exactly what was going to happen a little better.
