I'm scheduled to have a hysterectomy on the 18th. That was scheduled over a month ago. In the mean time, my gallbladder started acting up (nausea, vomiting, diarrhea). I've been well controlled with vomiting/ diarrhea just by removing fat from my diet and phenergan takes care of the nausea. I can't get in to see the general surgeon regarding my gallbladder until the 30th of January. So far no one has said I had to put the hysterectomy on hold until after I deal with my gallbladder but a part of me thinks I should. Any thoughts/ words of wisdom? hysterectomy is because of fibroids, prolonged bleeding (stopped a while ago), and terrible menstrual cramps (also stopped for the time being).
Which should come out first, the chicken (gall) or the egg (total lap. hysterectomy, leaving ovaries if not diseased.).
I thought for sure I'd find someone in the same boat. No such luck. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
I love your since of humor. I am afraid my response comes to late. If not, the best case scenario would be to have the surgeons collaborate so that your surgeries can be done simultaneously assuming the general surgeon feels that removal of your gall bladder is indicated. Otherwise, It really does not matter which one is done first. I agree that if your ovaries are free of disease and endometriosis is not a concern, that you should lean toward preserve them. Best wishes!
