5 days to go

Oct 01, 2009 - 2 comments

Only 5 days to go before the dreaded surgery, I am starting to feel a little better now but half an amful tickly cough and I cannot move it. So fingers crossed it goes in time. Getting very nervous now but will have to pull myself together as I have to get my house in order as the hubby isn't very helpful in that respect he tries but god help me theses next few weeks lol...

Good luck for your surgery. The tickly cough might be just nerves? If you have a cold they might postpone the surgery.

Get those patches for post-op hormone replacement. It will take the edge off sudden menopause.
(Actually, I was glad to have the menopause, even though I did have some difficult symptoms. They have eased up now. ANYTHING was better than the really painful periods I used to get. I could write off about 1 week every month because I felt so bad!! Menopause was like a dream-come-true! lol!) Even with the hot flashes, and slightly disturbed sleep
If you get the hormone patches, you shouldn't be so bad. And eventually all those symptoms go away anyway.

Thankyou for your advice I will definetly see about the patches. And I too suffered terrible with bad cramps every month and these lasted 2 weeks really got me down so know what you mean when you say the menopause is a breeze compared to the pain we went through I am so looking forward to getting everything out and not having anymore monthly cramps although my surgeon is not convinced this will deal with my problem but i am as this is the only time I suffer and if getting rid of what causes the pain helps then I'm all for it. I've spent to many years in pain I want my life back.
