My Wife is having surgery Tuesday the 21st

by null. / March 19, 2006 5:11 PM PST

She has several benign fibroid masses in her uterus and will undergo a total hysterectomy, also some other procedures to put other things back in place in there.
I am quite nervous, she as usual is steady as a rock. She will be recovering for the next 6-8 weeks the first 1 or 2 I will be fending for her every need and probably not have time to go online.

Prayers are welcome for her complete recovery.

Please tell your wife that she'll be getting many prayers and best wishes sent her way. I pray that the surgery will be successful and that she will have a comfortable recovery. My thoughts are with both of you. Best wishes, Sasha.

FWIW, I've known three women who've undergone similar in the past year and they all came through with flying colors. My best to your wife for a speedy recovery.

and good thoughts for a successful surgery and speedy recovery.

I had a hysterectomy about 6 years ago. It is a major surgery in regard to invasiveness, but with lots of good help & support, especially during those first few weeks, she will be on the road to feeling better in no time. Women, especially ''Mom's,'' have a difficult time dealing with the doctor's instructions of ''Don't do anything at all for X amount of time.'' We tend to believe we are tougher than all that. Wink It sounds like you have that part under control. You're a good husband. Grin

Take care, and God Bless,

Prayers for a complete recovery are on their way!

I had a similar "makeover" quite a while ago. Thing is, I didn't realize how far I was from feeling up to snuff until a while after the surgery. What an improvement! One of my friends who had been through it told me that if I felt so good then, just wait a few more months. She was right- I felt great!

What I noticed was when I was given the green light to drive, it felt strange and unfamiliar to get behind the wheel. I wasn't sure I could remember how.

Bless you, Don, for your willing and eager anticipation for catering to her every need.!

Prayers will be with her and you.

That sounds a bit young for that, so I hope it wasn't too upsetting.

At 24 I already had 4 kids!!! LOL! Problems caused by an IUD were responsible for it:(

I see. Fortunately for others, later one

newer models of IUDs are not causing problems.

too bad they experimented on so many of us back in the
60's and 70's:(

Sounded like a great idea, and I think it was
by Dragon / March 21, 2006 3:12 AM PST

There was an unintended consequence of how they were designed. Also, they stress that they should only be used by people who have had kids -- though I don't know if that had anything to do with problems of the earlier versions.

I remember learning about IUD's in sex ed ...
by Evie / March 21, 2006 6:09 AM PST

... by that time they weren't recommended for younger women BECAUSE of the infertility problems they had caused for so many before. I also recall being taught that they didn't know just how they worked, but one theory was that they induced a low grade infection (or the uterus perceiving such). That didn't sound too good to me at the time.

It appears that prior to 1976 such devices were not tested by the FDA.

I got pregnant with Benjamin with the IUD in place. Copper-7, I believe.

There was some discussion of possible defects to him from the IUD, and they suggested a possible termination.

I'm glad to report Ben came out just fine!

In reply to: Not for me!

After our 4th kid we had a consultation with the wifes Doc. regarding controlling this fertile area. He suggested this Coil or loop thingy as Angeline mentioned. The Wife was against it and All I could think of, was that thingy taking off in there and snapping off the end of my snapper.:( The Doc says it sounds like you two are against it. It was a unanimous vote. So, the wife had the Tube job. (Her tubes tied) No problems after that and a very easy operation.

Both had taken an antibiotic not long before.... before it was known that could happen.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
