Recovering from a hysterectom can be a long and often lonely experience. Without anyone to ask, how do you know if the pains you have, or the emotions you’re feeling are normal?
This unique hysterectomy recovery journal based on the conversations I’ve had with thousands of women over the years helps you navigate through the first six weeks after your operation. With a daily journal page, scaling diaries to monitor your progress and daily hints and tips (taken from our hints and tips emails) to help you track your progress, you can easily monitor your health and see the small, incremental improvements and changes that happen every single day. And, it perfectly compliments my best-selling book, 101 Handy Hints for a Happy Hysterectomy.
