Has anyone reading had a hysterectomy performed? How was your recovery? And how did you manage with little kids?
I am booked in to have mine done LAVH and I have two daughters ages 2 and 3. A little concerned about the recovery period and how I will manage.

I didn't have a hysterectomy but I had my tubes done!
Is there reason why your getting that over tubes? My friend just had hysterectomy due to lots of medical problems she's in her thirties but had her kids very young (teens). Her recovery was fine.
Do you have help at home? Childcare? I would look into those sorts of things. Batch cook etc as she's only just gone back to work 7 weeks later and she works at a desk ☺️

I had a hysterectomy at 31. my kids were 6 and 8.. so older than yours but they still needed me My hubby took leave from work for 4 weeks and probably by week 3 I was alot more mobile and just watched what i did as in house work and lifting. The first 2 weeks were the worst pain wise and boredom wise lol
If you can, freeze some meals prior to surgery, i did this and hubby said it was a god send.
best of luck

Thanks for your replies ladies. I have adenomyosis and pelvic congestion syndrome so unfortunately the only cure is a hysterectomy. Was really hoping to hold off a bit longer just in case we end up wanting a third but the pain is too severe. I'm feeling so anxious about it and the knowledge that a third baby is being taken away from me, but that's another story.
I will have the surgery on a Tuesday and by the following Monday or Tuesday, depending on what weekend I end up comitting too and if it's a long weekend, hubby will be back at work, so not too much support. But I was the same after my babies and csections so hoping it will be similar if not better recovery.

Hi! I'm 30 & scheduled to have a hysterectomy in March this year.
I don't know the fancy terms but they are cutting open my caesarean scar to remove my uterus. Leaving my ovaries but clearing the adhesions. Also taking my cervix.
I'm starting to get anxious but excited at the prospect of life without blood! 5yrs of uncontrolled bleeding is more than enough
Fx we both make it through relatively on top of our pain & much better for it!
