One Week Post-Op: No Big Deal

Greetings everyone. I was going to post something yesterday but decided to hold out until the one week mark. So, how am I doing? Really well actually.  I continue to have no real pain or other issues.  I was able to handle the stairs without any issue, I moved out of the bedroom after four…

Home From The Hospital

I'm Home and doing well. Thank you, again, for all the well wishes and support.  Husband and I are eternally grateful for all of your kindness. So how it went... Very well actually.  We left home and arrived early at the hospital and I wanted to walk around a bit before checking in to get my…

Day Before Surgery: No Expectations.

Good Morning.  The day is finally here, time for my surgery. Just so you know it is scheduled for tomorrow, January 24 at noon, but I am counting the day-before prep as part of the whole experience.  Husband and I spent the weekend together, it was nice he didn't have overtime this week, went thrifting…

8 Days Pre-Op: Worries

Good Morning. I thought I should give you all an update since I am only eight days before surgery.  I have begun to worry about money.  The fact that I won't be making any while I'm recovering and that even though I have insurance this surgery is going to cost us quite a bit.  Last…

17 Days Until Surgery

Well, I was right.  Another period started today.  Not sure how bad it will be yet but I'm prepared.  Just think I could have avoided this if I had my surgery last Thursday as planned... I sure am looking forward to the day my uterus and I part ways for this very reason.  I have…

T-Minus 7 Days

I'll start with the basic information for those of you that do not wish to read a longer more graphic post.  I had my first appointment and consultation with the surgeon in Iowa City yesterday.  The appointment went well.  They explained what they are going to do, laparoscopic hysterectomy, what they know about my cancer so…

Limbo is almost over

Tomorrow at this time I will be meeting with my doctor out in Iowa City.  I'm still scared but I'm also ready to become pro-active.  I'm tired of waiting, basically.  I don't know when my surgery will be yet but I hope it is soon.  I don't know what type of surgery I will have…

Surgery

Before my diagnosis of cancer the doctor suggested I get a hysterectomy because I was high risk for developing cancer, little did we know...  At first inclination I was all for it.  I have always found periods annoying, what woman doesn't, and I have never wanted children.  There was no logical reason for me to…
