I Made the Decision of Hysterectomy

Hi all! First of all I want to tell you all thank you for all your replies to my "hysterectomy vs. Laporoscopy". Thank you all so much for your words of encouragement. It meant alot to me for the support. I wanted to let you all know that I made my decision and am going into the hospital tomorrow morning for the hysterectomy. I am still very scared but have more confidence in it now than I did before. When I get home from the hospital and feel well enough to get on the computer again I will let you all now how it went and how i'm doing. Thank you all so much once again! It was and is very much appreciated! Take care and good luck in life to all of you.

Hurray! Surgery Is Over!
Just wanted to let everyone know that i've had my hysterectomy and am home from hospital and doing very well. I was so scared before my surgery, but now that it is all over I feel so good about my decision of surgery. I am very happy I did it. I am recooperating very well I think. They gave me an epideral before surgery to help the pain after surgery. The first night after surgery, when the epideral wore off was the worst. Within 2 hours of waking up after surgery and I was up walking. Walking made the biggest improvement in managing my pain. I went in for the surgery 2/11/04 and came home 2/13/04. Still painful a little of course but am doing very well and go in to have staples and drain removed tomorrow (2/16/04). I just wanted to let everyone know i'm doing great and let others know that is worried about this surgery that it is not nearly as bad as your mind lets you think. Thank you all so much once again for all the words of encouragement and support. I wish you all the best in everything you do. :d
