Frustrations - have you a similar story?

What should've been relatively straightforward is now, for me a frustrating set of circumstances. Yet, I feel guilty feeling this way when I heard the spot on CBS news tonight about a woman with stage four ovarian cancer who doesn't have a place to live. Stories like that do help one keep some persoective...
I was hopiing to find some comfort from any of you out there who may have shared my situation. I posted a question a week or so ago about whether or not to tell DR about slight bladder incontinence so soon before surgery (Dec. 5th). Well, I did, and the upshot was that I had to see the urology office today, the same day as my preop visits for surgery. So, more tests on Monday which will determine if there is a bladder problem to be corrected during surgery. This alone would delay my date. Really could've and should've been taken care of before if only my GYN had asked questions more than he did.
Unfortunately, this isn't the only possible delay. During all my previous routine visits to GYN I told him about my cardiac history and RFA preocedure for arrythmias. Never questioned me. Nothing was followed up. So, during previsit I really emphasized that I still have cardiac problem(s) and was concerned because of effects of anesthesia, etc to the nurse practitioner who did the exam. She really did listen and ask questions. So, now, at this way late date, I'm being told to call around to find a cardiologist to get a clearance for surgery - like I have any chance of doing that this week or even early next, or like I happen to have one I can pull out of my pocket. It is just seeming so unlikely that I will keep Dec. 5th date and am so
very discouraged by it all. I blame myself for not getting better cardiac care and for not being more proacive in getting attention with GYN for bladder problems. About that I do suspect that the 4 mo. sized uterus is probably
causing those problems.
How can I think about this to get through the next few days?

I too was scheduled for surgery but due to needing a bladder tack it was re-scheduled because the urologist wouldn't cooperate with the date the gyno set. What kinds of gyno problems are you having? They say I have prolapse causing my pain but I still have my doubts. I'm gonna go through with it and hope it helps me. It seems like my only chance to better quality life. I hope it all works out for you

OOHH!! The waiting is the hardest part!! And now, you have to wait again!! :hair: All I can say is this: things seem to happen for a reason. Later, after you finally get your hysterectomy you will say, "Wow, it's a good thing I waited!" You wouldn't want something to happen during surgery. Keep your chin up and vent your frustrations here...I have found that it helps tremendously!!
