I'm new to the boards and was looking for some information regarding hysterectomy. I'm scheduled for a TAH on Feb 18th and was wondering if anyone here could give me some advice as to what I should expect. Any tips pre op or post op, any suggestions-any information you wish you would have known before you had yours done- What meds are you on post op? Do you have to take hormones? I've got so many unanswered questions....Any advice/help is greatly appreciated.
Oh Yeah, I wanted to mention also, that I am having a blood transfusion prior to my surgery. My cycle is almost continuous at this point and has been for several months. It apparently has taken a toll on my blood counts. I am very anemic and the doctor said she could not perform the surgery without having a blood transfusion prior. Has anyone on here been in this position?
Thanks in advance for your help
