A difficult few weeks, haematoma after hysterectomy – Caroline’s Story

I had a front and back pelvic repair and my womb removed 11/11/13.

Not So Scary, Wendy’s Story

Prolapse, fibroids, anaemia and ovarian cysts – Anne’s Hysterectomy Story

I had my two children, both boys, at aged 38 and 40, suffering a cervical prolapse temporarily after each.  After a few months with plenty of pelvic floor exercises, the symptoms went away,  until a relapse a some years later due to stress, I think.  Again, a period of exercising did the trick and I was prolapse-free for another few years.  Then the prolapse returned.  Now aged 52 nothing was going to make it go away this time.
