I am very nervous about having a hysterectomy, is this normal?

Question: I’m feeling very nervous about my forthcoming hysterectomy and I wonder if this is normal or if I’m just a wimp, can you help?

Our Answer: It is perfectly normal to be nervous about having a major operation such as a hysterectomy. In fact it can be helpful, as it will help you to make sure you have enough information about what can, and may, happen to help you feel prepared.

  1. I too felt nervous about my op and when one of the consultants came to check on me before my op asking how I was I explained that I did feel very nervous. She looked me in the eye, smiled and responded ,
    “I’d be very worried if you weren’t!”
    She made me laugh and this reply made me realise that it is very normal to feel nervous.
