That was my answer to my doc's simple question of "So how y'feelin'?" after he performed my radical hysterectomy.

I told ya'll I had stories, but I'd druther share stories.

So any ladies out there ever have this procedure done?

(I'll accept offerings from any guys who have undergone castration as well.)

And speaking of men--why is it that when my husband mentions my surgery, he is the one who gets the sympathetic looks and understanding pats on the shoulder?

Look K, I can't even imagine having this done!  The doctor took away my HRT replacement, and for the first time in my life I was thinking of heading south to get me a gun to persuade him to give me those darn pills back!   He gave them back, but only after I showed him the "real me" without those pills by creating a scene in his office!  Now I am one happy camper again.   We all age, and then die, but darn it I am going to "do it my way!"

Because of a lifetime of bad habit, I am not a candidate for HRT--yet.

The doc says he'll consider that if I become a danger to myself or others.

(serenity exits, laughing like a madwoman...)

<--Does this guy look like Jack Nicholsen to you?

Yep, that little fellow does look like Nicholson, I see it every time.

Had it done? Yep. Long story soon! With a few laughs, I might add!

ohhhhhhhhhh lawsy!

I can't wait!

I had some very...interesting moments, m'self.

(Let's just say I have a new respect for chemicals.)

I once proclaimed in this forum (somewhere) that "I am not my hormones."

I was wrong.

In fact, that's the basis of my defense.



I came back to add, too, I've discovered that most women who did go through this hormone crash are skittish about talking about it--most of them won't even tell their doctors. They just grit their teeth and say "I'm fine."

(When women won't talk about something? It's bad, folks. Like "ghostbuster" bad.)

Karen, I want to tell you about a very sweet lady I know so grab a smoke and get comfy.  
This is about a neighbour lady that was a pillar of this community and she  volunteered, never swore, or raised her voice, and donated tons of great baking for charity functions.    

She had her hysterectomy in January 2007, and that July she and Brad would be celebrating their 25th Anniversary.  She told everyone she was hoping for a trip to Hawaii as she had always dreamed of going there, and lord knows she had given him enough hints for months.  Well, instead he surprised her with a brand new stainless steel fridge, stove, and a dishwasher and on his card it said, "To my darling wife who has given me years of wonderful meals, here's to 25 more years!"  Okay...

The next weekend while he was a work she held a garage sale, I think ya'll call them tag sales?  She opened the garage door, and offered for sale all of his tools.  This included his brand new big, noisy saw thing, (which I wasn't sorry to hear go,) and sold them all, including the shelves they sat on. She also sold her old stove and fridge in that sale.  When he got home he pulled into the garage which was now missing his workshop tools, and instead found a big banner saying, "ALOHA BABY!"  Hanging from it was a card, and it said, "To my darling husband - good luck finding yourself a new cook and bottle washer, hope she likes the new appliances!"  

She bought herself a ticket to Hawaii, and left him that day!   This is a true story.  She has never come back either.

I guess you shouldn't mess with a women not on HRT replacement!

Good lord Sharon, she was fine. He got what he earned...seems clear enough to me.

Karen,

I guess I don't count because I have one ovary left?  I did have a hormonal imbalance for a few days but then it was back to normal.  Well, expect for that pesky tube that got nicked during the surgery...but other than that I was just dandy.  And I still have menopause to look forward to.  

So, I guess I don't know yet.  But will you keep notes on what works?  I just don't want to hurt anyone....and I am close enough under normal circumstances.

*laughing*

Mike? I hope someday I can talk about my ex-husband!

Susan--not only do YOU count, so does that ovary!

And folks? I really need to think about this...the past month has been a testing time for me. I'm thinking about many things, and at times I feel that I'm quizzed on what I think I know, nearly at the instant I draw the conclusion.

Some of it is funny, and it's never funny in the moment.

Today I am wondering if there is a saturation point of understanding that is dangerous.

And now that I just typed that, I'm afraid.
