    Hi All
    I hope you’re all recovering well.
    For those of you who had a sub total hysterectomy (without BSO) were you informed of the chance of still having periods? Albeit lighter.
    I’ve just googled re bleeding at 7 weeks and that’s what I read!
    Shouldn’t google stuff really, but feel I would of looked a tag silly speaking to my GP when I should…[Read more]

    Ah thank you Jz!
    Am still on painkillers and Saturday I was still taking codeine!

    Here’s hoping!

    Subtotal abdominal hysterectomy 2nd May and have been desperate to join for support..it’s a very lonely post op world! Friends and family have been great and have kept me ‘on the settee’ but otherwise going a bit insane with trying to ‘do nothing’ and worry…[Read more]

  • Thank you so much!
    I really will rest as now have a browny discharge and I’ve had nothing since the about four days post op. Now I’m really worried about adhesions 🙁
    ‘Nothing’ means different things to different people! I’m not dancing, boxing, walking miles with rucksack and poles! It was just snail pace walking with frequent stops.
    Oh…[Read more]

  • Thank you!
    Beginning to feel the discomfort is constant and increases in intensity with standing.
    Think it’s a bank holiday of ‘bed rest’

  • Hi! New here and wondered if I could ask for some help!
    I’m 3wks and 3days post subtotal abdominal hysterectomy for fibroids.
