You didn't piss anyone off...



And its normal for you to feel scared and sad, I would be feeling the same way. Just try to stay positive though :)

You didn't piss me off or really I don't think anybody.



It is normal to feel anxious. It is major surgery. But it is routine for OBs to perform. Do you know if it will be laporscopic? My mom had to stay in the hospital for a night afterwards. Even if you know it's for the best it will still be scary. I really wish you the best

Hey there, OP, I know what you're going through somewhat. In 2010 I had a total abdominal hysterectomy with bisingual oopherectomy (TAH/BSO). Basically removal of uterus, ovaries, and cervix. I'm going to be honest: It was the worst pain I have ever been through in my entire life. But it was worth it in the end. My recovery was very smoothe. Take your pain meds before you need them and stay in the hospital as long as you can. DO NOT do anything strenuous for a good 8 weeks after. Don't even do housework if you can help it. Moving before you are healed will create adhesions... which... guess what? Leads to more surgery!



Make sure your husband is with you when you wake up. You will not be able to advocate for yourself if something is "going wrong" (ie. you get a b***h nurse like I did who is telling you to suck it up). But you'll be fine. In a week or so you should be back on your feet for the most part. Just be sure to take all the time you need to rest. It's very important.



www.hystersisters.com is a great site where there are forums like BG in which to talk to other people going through the same thing. It's helped me a LOT in the past few years, especially when dealing with surgical menopause.



Good luck!

I didn't realize I was in a protected forum. I really am sorry for what I said at first. OP I hope your surgery goes well. Tara (Fatty McRunner Pants) is a good person to go to for help with this sort of thing.
