Does hypnotherapy help hysterectomy recovery?

As a qualified hypnotherapist I would instantly answer yes that hypnosis helped my hysterectomy recovery, however I can only prove that it worked for me.

I had been suffering from heavy periods which caused anaemia and having tried many other medical interventions, and following a blood transfusion, I was advised to have a hysterectomy.

Not quite to plan, wound infection after hysterectomy – Elizabeth’s story

I am 66 and underwent a laparoscopically assisted vaginal hysterectomy (ovaries also removed) and extended vaginal cuff procedure due to VAIN and several dodgy smear results which colposcopy didn’t sort out. All did not quite go according to plan as I ended up with a wound infection and I hope my story will help anyone who feels unfit to leave hospital have the strength to argue their case better than I did. I feel that being discharged too early on 2 occasions caused my problems to be worse than they could have been and therefore made my recovery time longer.

Practical preparation for your hysterectomy – Irmagean’s story

Irmagean shares some practical preparation and knowledge of her hysterectomy earlier this year. In 2011 I was referred to an OB to discuss my heavy periods as a result of fibroids, at that time she suggested an IUD.

There is growing body of research evidence suggesting that adults who have experienced childhood abuse are more likely to have health problems than those without these experiences. Since the early days of the Hysterectomy Association, over 20 years ago, there have been a significant number of women self-reporting some form of abuse in their past history.

Rather sizeable fibroid and my recovery – Anne-Marie’s story

I underwent an abdominal hysterectomy on 14th June this year having had problems for the last two years due to a rather sizeable fibroid – everything was taken out with the exception of my ovaries. There seems to be very little information available generally with the exception of what is provided through the Hysterectomy Association and the forums and information they provide which have proven invaluable and very reassuring.

Rectocele prolapse after overdoing it post hysterectomy – Vivian’s story

My story is this which I hope will help others, as I feel I could and should have been given more information regarding exercises for pelvic floor muscles. I have since suffered another prolapse after my hysterectomy, this time a rectocele prolapse at the beginning of April 2017, I suppose because I have overdone things, but had I been given more information, perhaps this could have been prevented.

Freedom at last – Lisa’s story

I was 12 when the pains first started. Excruciating pains such that I would count the hours between pain killers and hide at the back of the class trying not to cry. I watched my mother go through the same thing so I figured it was normal. Periods were to be feared each and every month. They were never on time, never when I expected them and always left me tired. But I carried on.
