Woohoo I got a surgery date for my Hysterectomy!
Been waiting 8 months for a date to get my hysterectomy to deal with my unpleasant menstrual cycle. The funniest thing is I had anticipated later next year so I went ahead and bought a Mirena IUD and had an appointment for Monday to get it "installed" So I had to cancel my appointment. IUD's are expensive, too ($450!)! If you aren't covered by group insurance benefits. The pharmacy wont let me return it! boo! So if you are looking for an unused IUD still in the packaging at a good price I can hook you up! LOL
Just so excited to finally be getting the hysterectomy on December 18th! He is doing it vaginally so quicker healing time (i heal quick anyhow) I had no vacation time left this year at work so was going to work through the holidays.. looks as though now I get to be off on short term disability lol!

Good for you! I had mine done vaginally way back in 1995 by one of the leading surgeons in Montreal. Mine was due to endometriosis and the horrible pain I had day in and day out. I did leave my cervix though, it helps provide natural lubrication. The only thing is that I still need to have pap smears done like everybody else. It was a complete blessing to not go through that pain anymore! But, take it easy afterwards. I went back to work after only 1-1/2 weeks off - it was too soon. Take whatever time the doctor says to take. You need to move around, but you want to minimize creating new scar tissue. Best of luck!
Thanks for the advice! I am getitng it done because I am still of child bearing age (42 & unmarried but seeing someone) and do NOT want more kids (mine are 19 & 22) and I have a reallllly heavy flow since having my RNY done!
