    Hi yes I had my hysterectomy at the royal Oldham April this year. Found them very good especially theatre staff as I was a wreck. The only bad thing I experienced was not enough post op advice, so was very glad I found this group. Anything else you need to know please ask and I will try and help. X

    I have had epidural twice now and no back problems. X

    Hi Kerry
    To be honest I didn`t notice it and it was removed first thing in the morning which I did not feel, I was given epidural as well so maybe that was why.

    Hi Kerry
    I had my op 30th April, no hair loss not tried the other yet, but certainly thinking about, don`t think there`s a problem. Could it be just nerves, I was very scared pre-op but theatre staff and ward nurses were really good at calming me down.
    Big hugs and best wishes for tomorrow. x

  • Hi

    I to was given epidural, was in no pain when I woke, home day after.

  • Hi

    Hi sleepystar
    I took cordial in the hospital with me and shared it with a few others who had nothing and nurses had no peppermint or anything they could offer apart from hot water.

    Glad its not just me, Morgar and Alea. Think I would have been camped out at the doctors if it wasn`t for this site, prior to and after the Op. I am so glad I purchased that v cushion that I heard about on this site. There should be a leaflet advising all women having hysterectomy in every gynea waiting rooms showing the website as it`s a lifesaver.

    Hi Fiona
    Thanks for the reply, You just worry about every stage as it happens to you, it stops me from panicking that something is wrong.
    Especially when you don`t get proper information from the hospital. Thanks again
