Last week I took my wife to the hospital for a procedure. While she was in recovery the doctor briefly talked to me about what he found and I was trying to find the right words to ask a question he tried to anticipate what i was asking and used the "H" word. No I was not even remotely thinking about THAT. I clarified my question. He explained why what I was thinking would not work.

After she was a little more alert she wanted to know what the doctor told me so I relayed it as best as I could. Her follow up appointment was today. She has had the better part of a week to think about what I had said and the dr got into more detail today.

3 weeks from today she will have a hysterectomy. At 55 we have no reason to want more children so that is not an issue but any surgery brings certain concerns with it.

Funny how a person's outlook changes based on who is having surgery. My mother and her mother had surgery "back in the stone ages" as I called it when I talked to Mom. Being about 9 at the time I was certainly way too young to be overly concerned about Mom other than being concerned that she was having some kind of surgery.

A couple of years ago my wife's younger sister underwent the knife and I was naturally concerned for her and her well being but when it is YOUR wife that is being cut up it is a whole different ball game.

Here's to hoping my daughter doesn't make it 4 generations.

keep us updated as it gets closer. from my understanding, it can be a very easy procedure nowadays. i hope she does well & will be recovered before the warm weather hits so she can enjoy her summer.

thanks p2w and 4PG.

She is looking forward to getting this all resolved as it has been an issue for a while.

Our anniversary is coming up and we will go to StL to catch a couple of ball games before her surgery.

Hopefully she doesn't many emotional issues with this. As for the procedure itself - a walk in the park buddy! Good luck, BTW - I can't rip on the Cardinals because I actually respect that organization, and they beat the Brewdogs in 82 - fvckrs!

Not sure how I missed this thread before now.. but..

Wayne.. I wish nothing but the best for your wife and family as you work through this surgery. Good luck.
I think when there's enough will and aggression, there's no shortage of talent either.

obviously I don't know much about your wifes issues - but have you tried various things like:
http://progesterone.com/...ity-progesterone-creams/

also have you read some of the books out there about Hysterectomy's etc?

I remember reading a book (15 years ago) on the subject written by a woman and she was quite opposed to them (saying they are done way too much) ...

again I don't know anything about your wifes issues - but make sure you do your research first and don't just believe your doctor.

- GL to you guys

Dulak. I don't know a whole lot about it myself. The tumor is 7 cm long. It blocks the whole channel if I can use that term. It has caused her discomfort and issues for years.

If I had real vote I would have wanted her to try other options first. this is what she really really wants to do so I support her. I know the medical profession does way to many of these surgeries. I have seen estimates that they say almost half are not needed.

all done. We got here at 6 this morning. They took her back at 8. Actually started a little after 9. Around 10 the little nurse came out to tell me they had to do it the traditional, abdominal way instead of Laparoscopy method.
The doctor finished up and came to see me around 1:30 instead of noon like I thought he would. made for a little extra tense waiting.

She is in her room and resting. If has been a pretty long day. Heading home in a hour or so.

got her home this afternoon. Boy am I exhausted.

Tuesday nite I was so tired I didn't realize that I had not used the sheet when I got into bed. Just slept under the blanket. Wednesday nite I noticed something was wrong but I was too tired to try and figure it out.

Now for the next week I will keep running home every couple of hours (or as needed) to check on her. Hopefully by draft weekend she will be able to fend for herself or wait until the more important and pressing matters are taken care of.

Good luck.
It's important to your wife that you get some rest.
It's in the best interest of both of you.
