I've not posted in a while, but been reading everyone's contributions and the forum continues to be a real lifeline. I've got an open myomectomy vertical incision scheduled for next Thursday and am in full on preparation mode.
I have a 20cm and 8cm fibroid that didn't respond at all to a 3 month course of Esmya, hence need for vertical rather than bikini incision. I had expected that was the case as I didn't have any side effects from the Esmya. Although my consultant says my chances of an emergency hysterectomy are increased given the size and complexity, I feel like I'm mentally prepared as much as possible so focusing on practical prep.
So, I was looking for any advice in terms of what I need to take to the hospital or prep for the first few weeks. In particular has anyone used V or U pillows and also abdominal binders or compression pants?
Any links to checklists and the like will also be much appreciated as I'm going google blind at this point!! I'm an avid to do list maker so playing to my strength here and distracting my mind from the op!
