In October 2015 at the age of 49, I had a total hysterectomy. I had for some years beforehand been suffering from extremely heavy periods that came whenever they felt like it. I had put this down to getting older and putting on a lot of weight. Then towards the end of 2014, I noticed that I had developed a small umbilical hernia.
Although I am 54 I had exactly the same. I am 9 weeks post op & don’t feel any different a person for having all my bits removed! I am rid of pain & bleeding which is wonderful & so nice to walk through the women’s needs aisle in the shops as I have no need for any of it anymore. I feel liberated.
I have to say it is the best thing I have had done. I was becoming irregular and my GP said it was my age at 47 and to be expected. However I never had a period for 4 months leading up to my wedding and for a month after, he said this was stress (even though I did not feel stressed at all).
I had my full hysterectomy and appendectomy 9 days ago. It was due to symptoms of bloating and ovarian pelvic pain, they had previously done a sonogram which revealed a cyst on my left ovary. I am 55 years old so not needing them I knew that they had to go and read up a lot online about having them removed and my appendix as there was pain there also 🙁
I had been visiting my doctor for several years with really heavy and painful periods. They suggested my best option was to have a Myrena coil fitted, which they said would help with my periods. As I was close to menopausal age. In my late 40’s I did not think this would not be right for me.
Hi Everyone. I had a total hysterectomy in Feb 2014. My surgeon was brilliant, I have absolutely nothing bad to say about him, in my eyes a top surgeon deffo. Yes, I had a lot of pain but I definitely feel a lot better for having this op. However, I do have underlying lung problems so with that and my op I did expect to feel tired and I was.
Hi. It’s just over 2 weeks since I had a full hysterectomy and appendectomy where they also took my appendix out. I was not bleeding after the op but have now started to bleed nothing to worry about the doc says.
Well my name is Alyssa and I had a total hysterectomy after I suffered with endometriosis for yrs. At age 21 I had my first surgery. 3 months later I was pregnant with a miracle baby girl. I say that b/c I had 6 total surgeries in 8 yrs trying to have another baby.
Since I started my periods at age 13 I suffered from painful periods. The pain got gradually worse over the years. I tried every possible type of contraceptive to help with the pain including Depo-Provera injections and the Mirena Coil but nothing helped much. I had numerous scans and laparoscopies but other than a few lesions and small spots of endometriosis there was nothing to explain the pain I was in.
