Hi, I am 35 years old. On October 27th, 2008 I am having a full abdominal hysterectomy, due to endometriosis & other issues. I am worried and I don t know if I should be doing anything special before having surgery.

Re: things to do before having a full hysterectomy

When is your surgery? There are a lot of things you can do, but it kind of depends on how long you have between now and then.

Re: things to do before having a full hysterectomy

I'm not sure exactly what you are asking? I had a complete one done, and before hand
I ready myself by walking and getting myself in better shape. To have the surgery done.
They did put me on hormones within a week or so of having everything removed.
I'm sure everything will work out fine. It is nice not to have monthly anymore and the terrible pain that came with them.

Re: things to do before having a full hysterectomy

I cleaned my bedroom really well. That was where I would be most of the time. I made sure I had my portable DVD player close by and a good stock of movies (we don't have a TV in our bedroom). My cell phone charger was by the bed. I had some books to read. I bought plenty of easy-to-fix food so I had food while Hubby was at work.

I cleaned the ceiling fan (so I didn't have to look at the dust bunnies that live up there).

Re: things to do before having a full hysterectomy

Hi Maria,
Just saw your post and realized your surgery date of 10/27 is gone by. How are you feeling? Hope all went well. I too had a full abdominal hyst and it's been 9 weeks post surgery. Your almost at the 2 week stretch, you must be feeling much better by now.
