Hi Nolagirl: I'm sorry you're hurting but glad that you're getting the surgery. Don't get too concerned about the surgery. Sometimes a surgeon will nick a bowel but that's certainly not the norm. If you're otherwise healthy, there shouldn't be a problem.

About your symptoms, in a word, yes. The only one I'm not sure of is the hot flashes. That may be hormone related. I don't know but would recommend you ask a doctor if they continue.

Please feel free to email me if you have any questions. I've had a bunch of surgeries and no nicked intestines. Good luck and I hope you can stay calm and relatively pain free until your surgery.
