View Full Version : Having a hysterectomy.
Wow 27 is so young to be thinking about this. My Gyno has suggested that after I FINISH having my family that I could have the inside of my uterus lasered as this stops your period etc... It is a far more gentle method than full hysterectomy and you get to keep your bits in tact and I think there is an option of future pregnancies. Maybe you should see another gyno and discuss your options further
I had a hysterectomy for medical reasons about 7 months ago.
I had a partial vaginal hysterectomy (only took the uterus out and left the ovaries). I was in hospital for 2 days following the operation, was in quite a bit of pain as I could only have low dose painkillers (thats a whole other story), had pains for about another 2 weeks, felt like really bad period pains. Took it very slowly for another 6 weeks after the op, no lifthing, heavy housework etc.
After that, I haven't had any real problems. I have had no side affects from the operation. Because I kept my ovaries I haven't had to have HRT. I feel great and don't miss my periods at all. To look or talk to me you wouldn't even know I'm missing some bits.haha
partial vaginal hysterectomy (only took the uterus out and left the ovaries). that sound's like what the dr was talking about.
There was talk of me having a Hysterectomy when I was about 15/16 because of my bleeding. I was in and out of hospital nothing was stoping it. It was on and off every few day's. When it was on it was non stop flooding. The Dr's couldn't work out what was going on. I was so sick from it.
My Aunty took me to a naturopath when I was 16 that fixed it. Now it is back I will go back to the naturopath. See if what they give me will fix it again. If not I will really have to thank about having a Hysterectomy.
We went out to day. All I was asking DH is can you see any blood every sec. I had to wash 4 pants yesterday, 6 today from bleeding. :hair:
It is costing me so much money in pad's I would hate to add it up.
Not sure if this is useful or not but have you tried the merena?? I never had the problem of non stop bleeding but did suffer really heavy/long periods - since having the merena put in my periods have completly stopped.
Maybe just worth asking you DR about before you rush into a hysterectomy
Gosh!!! You poor thing!! My mum had a full one last year and she was in alot of pain, couldnt do anything for 3 months but 6 weeks in she was doing stuff (she was too bloody stubborn to listen to docs or us!!!), nded up tearing the work they had done andit all got infected and she had to have another op. She was not a very nice person to be around at that time, and was sooo mean to my poor dad! She is much better now and doesn't have hardly any of the pains she used to though. If I was you, I would def try and lok at any other options possible! I really feel sad for you, very hard decision to make at such a young age!
I have been told I can't have a Merena as they don't know why I'm bleeding, plus
abnormalities which they found only after I had a biopsy. If they say I can I would try it.
I will try any thing if it would mean I didn't have to be cut open :dizzy:. That is the last thing I want. But if nothing else work's then i'm going to have too :eek::crying:.
I hope the naturopath work's again :fingerscrossed:. The stuff I had to drink last time was :barf:.
But it worked. Plus fixed it till last year.
Gosh i hope you get it sorted :hugs: I just wanted to suggest cloth pads, they would work out so much cheaper for you, just wear then put straight into your wash.
Good Luck with everything :hugs:
