Success after IF

Surgery Friday - Spazzing

So I haven't cancelled my surgery for Friday yet.  Right now I'm planning to proceed as planned and just hoping I get my period tomorrow.  

I talked to the nurse at the hospital for a bit yesterday after she called to get a family health history and she said the doc who is doing my surgery is meticulous.  She said the lap is going to take 3 hours and that my doc and another doc (I believe a urologist???) are going to be looking not only at my reproductive organs, but also checking over/in my bladder, bowls, doing a hysteroscopy, as well as the usual HSG, etc etc.  She was explaining that he not only removes the endo, but also the tissue surrounding the endo and anything that he feels looks like it could grow endo or looks questionable.      

I'm freaking out.  Like, seriously having really bad anxiety about this.  My laps in the past have been 45 mins to an hour max.  I'm am absolutely dreading this, yet at the same time I know this is the right move and I really should have gone to him from day 1 instead of wasting my time having my regular OB do the surgeries.  I've read online that people travel from all over to see this guy and that he is the best in this area.  I've read he also travels overseas to do these lap surgeries.  I trust him.  I know I'm in good hands.  I'm thrilled that I actually got in with him before he retires.  I'm just totally stressing out!  I hate this.

  • It sounds like you are in the best hands :) but I think whenever you have a longer surgery & you are going under anesthesia it makes you nervous.  Try not to stress & think how you will feel when you are all recovered.  Best of luck
