    Default Has anyone had an elective partial or full hysterectomy?

    Did you have any problems getting it done or face any opposition? What about the reasons for getting it done (if anyone wants to divulge, but I understand if you don't). And finally, what was the op like in terms of pain and recovery. Any regrets?

    Or even non elective?

    I know this is an old thread but @beebs did you end up having the operation done?

    I had an emergency c section when i had #2. Was bleeding too much and uterus won't contract, so after 2-3 hrs of trying to keep me stable and depleating the hospital of all their blood supply, my medical team had to do a partial hysterectomy on me. Recovery was hard, was in so much pain after. Not as quick to jump out of the bed like my first induced v birth. Now ok, still gets PMS mood swings and headaches. Lots of hot flushes in the first year, now seems to have calmed down.

    My friend got her uterus partially removed last year. It was costly in terms of finance as well as the pain afterward. She says she hasn't recovered fully even by now.
