pre-op appointment

I have gotten my pre op appointment on the 26th of november. I have still not found out what type of hysterectomy TAH or TVH will be done on me. Whenever I was in the doctors office there was so much more info coming at me, and me crying right thru most of it that it never accured to me to ask while I was there....and I have been there three different times. I have started writing down questions to ask the doctor but would like some help in coming up with other things to ask him. I am having the hysterectomy due to cervical cancer, but the doctor did say that I should be able to keep my overies. Any questions that you think might help me would be wonderful.

pre-op appointment

Hi Eve:

I know how overwhelming it is to be facing surgery---trying to absorb everything and prepare yourself. I had little post-it notes stuck all over the house of things I would think about to ask, etc.

Here is a great pull-down on "Pre-op Appointment Questions" that are very helpful.

You can find other pulldowns (at the bottom of the home page) with lots of good pre-op and post-op information.

Also, I notice that you are having the surgery for invasive surgical cancer. You might also consider visiting the Cancer Concerns Forum, where there are a lot of wise ladies who had hysterectomies due to cancer.

In addition, if you go into your profile page and add you surgery date, you will receive extra best wishes and hugs here when your big day arrives.

I hope this helps. Very best wishes to you!
