Well, saw my new surgeon/onc yesterday, and he said that the cancer is low grade (YES!) and that he forsees no problem with the surgery. He is sending me to a vascular surgeon to put in a filter in the Vena Cava, because I am high risk for blood clots (I still have one from the last time). So I see this new doctor on Friday. They are going to try to coordinate it so that the filter is placed in the morning, and the hysterectomy is done later that day; only one trip to the hospital.
For some reason I have a lot of irrational fears about this surgery. I'm scared of stuff I'm not at high risk for, and not scared of stuff I should be. It's wierd. I have never feared surgery before. Oh well, I guess it's probably giving up control again that has me apprehensive. I should be used to it by now, since I really haven't been in control of much since the first diagnosis.
Anyway, thanks for letting me ramble on and on. I will keep you posted. Thanks, too for all the good information and insights.
