One week on – Lynn’s Story

Well, its one week on since my hysterectomy, two days in hospital then discharged and feel not too bad – better than I thought I would.

Went back to hospital yesterday to have stitches removed and have an infection in the wound which is being treated with antibiotics – apparently not an unusual situation. All feels good although painful around the scar.

Gradually building up my exercise regime and now on a ten minute gentle walk daily. I do find by the afternoon, that I do need a rest and normally have a lay down for half an hour.

I’m trying to take things easy but that’s quite hard when you are used to being on the go the whole time. It would be good to hear from others in the same time frame as to who they are doing.


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.
