Yikes!! I only looked at the TAH photos. They didn't bother me as much as I thought. Probably because I've had my nightcap already. And also maybe because I saw a C-section on TLC earlier today.

Did someone say bruising? Oh dear! I bruise just thinking about about a bruise. I shall expect my entire abdomen to be one big bruise since I'm having a TAH.

We women are really some stuff beings!!

God bless my HysterSisters!!!

Those were amazing images! Thank you for the link. I still don't understand though, to what my remaining ovary is sutured to now that my right one and my uterus are gone???? Hmmmmm. Anyone know?

Hi, I looked these up before I had my op - I was really glad I did, cos my TVH inc repair and TVT was done via local anaesthetic; and I might have wanted to watch, if I hadn't seen the pics. Once I had, I knew I didn't want to watch!

But it's great to know. I didn't think they were too graphic - I mean they aren't distressing in the sense of maybe seeing news reports of people dying in the Tsunami; and there was less blood than I thought.

Thanks, weasel! Very, very interesting. I too needed to visualize what went on.

It was neat to look at that stuff. My doctor actually gave me pictures of my LSH. He showed me where the endo was and my ovaries. They were just like those photos on the website, but it was neat that they were actually pictures of my own stuff.

I went on that site BEFORE my surgery. Made my DH look at it so he would know why I was going to feel like I thought I would feel.
I have to say (and I hope it doesn't offend anyone)
The vaginal one reminds me of pulling the neck out of our Thanksgiving Turkey.

I somehow think my uterus isn't going to let go. I've come to the conclusion that Mother Nature doesn't like me. Remember the old margarine commercial: It's not nice to fool Mother Nature. I got my Lupron shot on 2/14 and my period started 2/16. Go figure!! My body is acting like it never received the Lupron shot. I feel it laughing at me and thinking "You think you're doing something but have I got something for you". I'll be 52 years old this year and I think my body would know I'm too old for periods.

Anyway... I was thinking about asking for pictures of my removed innards. I think it would be harder to look at my own innards than someone else's. I think seeing my own innards would bring me more in touch with my mortality. I'm not sure I want that now. It was more fun thinking we're invincible than being faced with the issues we have on hand now.

You know, I had wanted to know what would now be at the end of the "channel" now that my uterus and cervix are gone. Actually, DH had asked me. The pictures helped me to see that suturing takes place but I will ask doc for all the nitty gritty next week. I think we won't have our little appointment on Monday due to an impending snow but sooner or later he will get me in. Thanks for the website.
