Hey hope nobody minds me naming this month the April Saviors 2013 as I’ve been given my date as the 15th April.January 19, 2013 at 6:42 pm #222356
Hey soapsuds, welcome to the site and as your are the first April lady then you were quite right to name the monthly club whatever you like!!
It may be a little while (I hope not though) before you get anyone join you as from what I have seen it is rare to have a date 3months ahead!! In the mean time you can always chat with us February fruits, march make overs and the January jets who are currently going through their ops which will give you a great idea if why your about to go through!! I am a fruit (op date 13th feb but only found out on Wednesday) but I have been hanging round here since August last year and have found the info available on this forum from all the lovely ladies who have gone through it absolutely invaluable!! You can ask any question you like and there is always someone who can help!!
Good luck for the future and I’m looking forward to hopefully getting to know you over the coming weeks/months xxJanuary 19, 2013 at 7:10 pm #222357
Thanks Becki221 I got my date the same day I saw my consultant as he did it through the easi booking scheme at the Manor Hospital in Walsall.January 19, 2013 at 7:34 pm #222358
That sounds great, wish I had that with my consultant!! The months a waiting and making all those annoying phone calls to his secretary drove me mental lol. Like I say make sure you pop in and chat to us to make sure you get the support!!
Can I ask why your having the op?? XxJanuary 23, 2013 at 11:14 am #222359
I have stage 3 Endometriosis, after years of heavy periods i had a laser ablation 2 years ago and have suffered over the last year with very painful episodes when around that time of the month was in hospital 3 times last year with it but on the last time in noverember the female dr that saw me said she wasn’t happy that they had no reason for the pain and said she wanted a laproscomy the next day thats when they found the Endometriosis and discovered it had adhered to my bowel aswell so all the years had been told I had ibs it was caused by Endo. They gave me a follow up appointment 14th Jan the consultant told me I needed a hysterectomy and sent me straight round to easy book.January 23, 2013 at 12:37 pm #222360
Well finally you have an answer Hun and can start thinking of a life without pain!! XxJanuary 23, 2013 at 1:51 pm #222361

Hi Soapsuds, well done starting April Forum. How are you doing with preop symtoms? I hope they are not to bothersom this weekend. Make you use of the time when your on here to look around the site so you can learn all about on whats ahead for you. Im sure as the weeks go more ladies will join xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Hi Steph, glad you also got your date, Like I said above use the time to look up on here all you can also like Beckie says get to know the Feb Fruits so you can see their countdown to ops & how they recover.
Hope your preop symtoms also are not bothersome this weekend.xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxFebruary 4, 2013 at 12:13 pm #222366
Hi girls, well and truely fed up today, had letter wkend to tell me op for 8th April cancelled due to consultant being on annual leave !!! Bit of a nightmare considering partner had arranged wk off after op to care for me and that cannot now be changed due to cover having been sorted for her. Dont begrudge them time off but do they have to do it when they know they have women booked for ops. Am now waiting for another date to come threw, which hopefully wont be too far away as i also have to have an abdominal hernia repair this year and this cant be done until i have recovered from my TAH. Hope all you lovely ladies are good today. xxx 🙁February 4, 2013 at 12:53 pm #222367
Oh no, Steph I am so sorry to be reading this!! Please try and stay positive, although I know this we be hard at the moment. Unfortunately this seems to happen quite a lot and I guess when your booked so early there is more of a chance of things to change!!
Give it a few days then ring up and speak to your consultants secretary, make sure you are on the radar!! Be polite and friendly but explain you situation and how this had messed up lots of arrangements!! Make sure your noticed but not a pain. Would you be happy to take a cancellation date?? Let her know if you are!!
What does hubby do?? But law you only have to a certain amount notice for holidays, I think it’s double so if he wants a week off he had to give 2 weeks notice, I’m sure there must be something similar for changing holidays!! Could he not explain to his boss the situation you’s are now in???
Stick around this site though and get the support you need and use the time to gather all the info you can xxxFebruary 4, 2013 at 1:14 pm #222368
Hi Becki, just got off phone to consultants secetary and explained the situation, have been told there is one more lady before me to sort out, so hopefuly will hear something soon. Problem with partners work is that there is only a small work force and other employees have holiday booked so its difficult for them to change things. Fingers crossed she will get the new job she has applied for, if she does she is finished at 1pm each day so things will be ok. Thanks for your concern. xxxFebruary 7, 2013 at 4:37 pm #222369
Hi Ladies, hope everybody is well. Sad, but at the same time, very happy to say that i am leaving the April Saviors and joining the March Makeovers. My April 8th cancelation has now been turned into a March 25th for TAH/BSO. So a bad start to the week has changed to a very happy end to the week. Cant believe i am so happy about having my first op at 50yrs of age, but there are definatly some body parts i will be glad to see the back of !!
Hope eveybodys April ops go well, and fingers crossed i will be reading about your progress from the ‘ done couch ‘ now. xxx 😆 😆February 7, 2013 at 8:27 pm #222370
Soapsuds I hope you’re ok, I’m sure there will be more ladies with April dates on here with you soon in the meantime come and join us fruity feb lot!
Fab news Steph what a relieve for you! 🙂
