    Hi Diane and Welcome! I'm fairly new myself but have truly enjoyed my chats with everyone. Nerves are normal but I think you will feel relief after.

    Welcome diane, I didn't have fibroids (had cancer instead) was also very nervous but kept telling myself that it would be much better afterwards, no heavy bleeding and having to wear 5 pads at a time (they would only last and hour sometimes), in the days leading up to my op I kept telling everyone I was going to run away, come the day of the op I was cool as a cucumber, I had resigned myself to the fact I HAD to do this or bleed to death.........it is wonderful post op, I still have a mountain of pads that I don't now need.

    You will be fine I'm sure, no more bleeding or pain, just concentrate on that.

    We will all be thinking of you, so keep in touch. biggrin

    Hi Diane 

    Sounds like you are suffering badly so think how much better you will be once you have been through recovery, you will be a new woman.  lol

    My op is on Good Friday, hopefully they will sort out my bowel and bladder and stitch it all back, cannot wait.  razz

    Love

    Hi Diane, your feelings sound very normal to me. My surgery will be in June, don't have date yet. I'm two months away and I'm having moments of freaking out. But, I know I will be better once it is done. I have one huge fibroid and bowel prolapse. You will feel so much better and not bleed and hurt. You are in the right place to get great support from very nice gals in this group. ;0)
