The Shores of Alone
Hi, just wanted to add my support. I had a hysterectomy in my mid 30's, had already had a child, so that part did not bother me. I was scared, too, just because of the stories you hear. It does depend on how extensive the surgery, if you will need hormones, but that really is not such a problem once you get adapted to the right amount. OK, I don't know you, and I will tell you this one thing, which I have no idea if others have thought of. I was scared to death it would ruin my sex life. Absolutely it DID NOT!
Also, I had previously had surgery, so I was expecting it to be extremely painful as that one was. It was less, though still difficult. You can plan to be hurting for a week or so, enough to not want to do much of anything. After that, its more a matter of regaining your strength, which may take a few months, or less if you are in good health otherwise.
Hey I just realized you may already be in the hospital as I write this. If so, then just remember, whenever you get back to your computer, that you will be feeling fine soon, and it will eliminate a lot of regular pain. Good luck, and email if I can help in any way.
