Hi all, I can't sleep due to anxiety about surgery on Friday. I'm having my ovaries removed and it's supposed to be "drive-by-surgery". The surgery only lasts for 45 mins then 4 hrs in hospital before I can be released..then back to work in 6 days..
My onco referred me to an obgyn surgeon that "Is the best in town". Well, after waiting 3.5 hrs total, he spent about 3 mins w/ me. He didn't do any kind of exam, just went off what onco said..I preregister at the hospital tomorrow....What questions should I be asking? I haven't had much time to research this...
I'm super anxious!! I had 3 surgeries on my right breast and 9 lymphnodes with a different surgeon, he always spent about 15 mins with each appt.
This is supposed to be fairly easy and common, wish I wasn't so petrified.
thanks for your input...any advice what to expect would be wonderful!!
