I thank you so much for all you have done for me. I am happy and healthy and going on with life. You and your whole team are so supportive and helpful to women like me who get anxious before procedures, let alone a total hysterectomy. You inspired such confidence. You actually listened to my fears and addressed them. While I know women who have had robotic hysterectomies and told me it was really an easy recovery, I am old enough to know many women who had open surgery for their hysterectomies and took months to recover. I was apprehensive. (Read that SCARED).
All my fear was wasted energy! You and your team and Morton Plant Hospital did a great job. I had no problems with the anesthesia, the nurses on the floor were so nice that night, and I was home the next day. Then I waited for the difficult recovery. And waited, and waited. I was very tired the first week after surgery and slept a lot. The second week I did more, and was still a little tired. I had practically no pain at all. I think I may have taken 1 or 2 pain pills at night, but that was all. I still can’t believe I had a major surgery without any hassle or pain! My recovery was ridiculously easy. I recommend the robotic surgery without any hesitation. The Robot is only as good as the person operating it and you are the best, a truly skilled and caring surgeon. Your compassion shows in all aspects of your practice. Walking into your office and discussing my GYN issues was one of the best decisions in my life.
