Hysterectomy what to expect afterwards?

Hi meet with my Doc. Jamie Bakunin-Gamez in Rochester yesterday and she went over my plan for me. I have a Pet Scan/ CT Scan Tuesday Sept. 6th and if she can rearrange some things will be having my Hysterectomy Sept 8th, if not my Hysterectomy will be done Sept 16th. She was very informative and answered all my questions I asked her. She told me not to worry I am in the best place for care of this Cancer, she told me all what she would be removing, had a diagram and explained everything. After talking to her, big weight was lifted off my shoulders. Mayo Rochester is the place to go.

@cheriels I'm so glad you posted as I had been wondering about your appointment at Mayo.

It sounds like you are very reassured after your appointment with Dr Bakunin-Gamez. Your description of your first appointment is very much like mine was in 2019. While I arrived with questions, my doctor spent so much time explaining what she had read in my reports, her recommendations including a drawing, that I only had a few questions left.

What does your doctor recommend? Your PET/CT is coming up very soon and then your surgery. Are you relieved that this is all happening so quickly and that you have an action plan?

Hi Cheriels,
My niece just had a complete hysterectomy due to ovarian cancer 2 wks ago. She's healing very well and is so relieved that it's done. I wish you the best and I'll be thinking of you. Take care.

So glad to hear you got scheduled for the first step- surgery. Indeed, it's a huge weight off when that's taken care off. Hoping all works out for the best. Mayo Clinic here in Jacksonville was my hospital and they will take care of you.❤

Thank you!
