Off Topic: Tommorow is my Surgery

I will be out for a day or so but, as soon as I come home (wednesday we think)

I will be online for as long as I can

I'm having a LAVH-BSO (hysterectomy taking ovaries and all).

This surgery is long overdue for me and I'm looking forward to

my new "life" when it's over.

See you in a couple of days.

Ps. I will still be here throughout today and part of the morning tommorow.

Good Luck tomorrow. From someone who has BTDT (albeit in spectacular style during an emergency c-section, due to a massive heammorhage) I thoroughly recommend it ;) Unless you want more kids of course!! But, Life without periods and all that goes with that is just wonderful!!! I have many envious friends that I don't have to deal with all that :)

I wish you all the best and pray that your surgery goes well tomorrow. As my daughter says, "I'll cross my fingers and my eyes for you!" Good luck, but I know you won't need it.

I hope all went well, that you are fairly comfortable and recovering nicely at home.

well, surgery is over, it was awful and recovery has taken more

time than I thought. I get online for about 5 minutes at a time here

and there. I'm getting stronger each day though.

The surgery took 5 hours, most of them take 2. the dr said "

you had more adhesions than Dr. Carter has Liver pills"

I hope everyone's doing well.
