Recovery after hysterectomy – Joy’s Story

On Jan 20th 14 I had a hysterectomy which was vaginally performed. All went well and I was discharged the following day. I felt better, but after about 5 months I developed severe back pain which am now managing with the help of exercises. My main concern though is these days when am not lubricated I feel a bulge in my vagina although not as big as before the op but its there. Does anybody feel the same? Please some advice needed here.


in my own words book coverNow available on our online store and all other online book store’s. In My Own Words: Women’s Experience of Hysterectomy is full of many other real-life stories from women the world over.

Other people’s stories help women feel less isolated. They show that they aren’t going mad, missing the point or stupid.
