I have had my pre op for my radical hysterectomy but still have no date for surgery.
would love to hear from anyone who has been through it!
i have to follow a low-residue diet for the day before the op, and take medicine that will make me 'go'. A lot. Then apparently I will have a catheter, drain and oxygen for 48 hours, and l need to wear gorgeous stockings, and will have to self inject for a month! I can hardly wait!!!! And then the menopause will kick in ss apparently my oncologist does not like to give out HRT!
PLEASE can anyone share some experiences that will make this seem less terrifying?
also, any tips on what to bring with me, like what worked well for the delightful wind issue? Any herbal stuff that was good for the hormones?
thank you in advance and thanks to those of you that have already done some reassuring! Xxx
