Hysterectomy in 2 Days

I’m having a panic attack.

The idea of having my lady bits ripped out of me by ROBOTS (DaVinci robots) isn’t sitting too well with me at the moment.

I mean, I know logically that this is routine and it should be ok- but the robot part and the fact that I am going to be spayed like a cat kind of freaks me out.
They will be keeping my ovaries, but removing the fallopian tubes and the uterus due to adenomyosis and fibroids and other things… and checking for cancer.
Pretty standard stuff.

Still, the robots ripping out my female parts- not my kind of sci fi.

The last 3 days of my period- my last period of my life- have been the worst pain I’ve ever experienced. I know this has to go, but omg.

I’m in mourning.

I have not been able to walk since my menses started. My uterus is now swollen to the size of a 4 month pregnancy or more. It’s laying on my spine, retroverted, so the back pain is horrific.

I did a part 1 re the health reasons behind it, but haven’t been able to do the part 2 yet. I tried to put it out of my mind, really.

Booked my hotel in the city where my surgery will be done (an hour away from my home). I have to go have all my fake nails ripped off today prior to surgery, not looking forward to this, either.
