Default Prayers for sugery tomorrow

I haven't said much except in my private FB groups and CTs...but I am having surgery tomorrow. I have had an extremely difficult time with bleeding since having Derek, and have tried different procedures but none has worked. I am having a hysterectomy tomorrow...have to be there at 6:00 AM. I could use lots of positive thoughts and prayers!!

I expect to get lots of scrapping time in over the next several weeks while my mom is here helping out with the boys!!!

Thanks!
Kim

Prayers coming your way Kim. I had a vaginal hysterectomy done about five years ago due to tumors and excessive bleeding and was really amazed at how easy the healing was and how much better I felt over all. I hope it is the same for you.

Best of luck tomorrow Kim! My Mom had one for the same reasons several years ago and couldn't believe how much better she felt afterwards, so hopefully you'll have a quick & easy recovery as well.

I'm alive! I have been sleeping so much....every 30 minutes of being awake requires a 4 hour nap! LOL

I managed to get one page scrapped today in between naps today!

I got home late afternoon on Wednesday...they had to make sure I could tolerate food and could actually walk. I was so nauseous and dizzy from the sedatives and couldn't even lift my head up without getting sick!!

I am actually feeling pretty good. Very little cramping and soreness from the actual surgery. I just have ZERO energy to get out of bed or even sit up for that matter. Thank goodness I am completely stocked with water, an iPhone and iPad! The lappy is here but it has spent most of the time on the floor. I am looking forward to feeling normal again and can stay awake!!!

Thanks for the all the prayers!

I slept a lot after my surgery too. It is your body healing. Don't push it, let it do its thing and you should feel well in no time.

I've been MIA so I just saw this. How are you feeling now??

My doctor keeps suggesting a hysterectomy for my bleeding issues. I want to try and get things under control naturally but I'm not sure if I will be able to. I bled for almost 2 months over the summer. It finally stopped 3 days ago and I'm praying it stays away for at least a month.

Sherri,
I am doing great...feel awesome, just get tired easily and need to take a few naps. I went out for a walk yesterday and that felt great! I have very little pain...like almost none...but I do have a very high pain tolerance too...just not for being nauseous!!!! I am SO glad I had the surgery and can't put this mess behind me!! I tried for two years to get things under control and nothing worked!!!! I know in a few weeks I am going to say this is the best thing I could have done!! YAY!!!

I feel the same way. I had bled for nine months straight when I finally had my surgery. I had tried everything else over a long period of time and could have kicked myself for suffering when the surgery made a world of difference. It really was the best thing I have ever done for myself.
