to Hyster Sisters, Goolla!
Thank you for stopping by to introduce yourself! It's nice to meet you!
Don't worry about holding your feelings in on this website. You'll find you aren't alone in how you feel and expressing yourself can sure help make it all more bearable!
A good starting place for posting to get to know your new Sisters is the Pre-Op message board. Questions about surgery and what to expect can be asked there and you'll get replies from other pre-op ladies as well as post-op members!
Click the Hysterectomy Info link above the lavender bar near the top of the page and you'll see links for both Pre- and Post-Op Articles. Those will help answer many questions!
It's normal to have feelings of loss about your uterus and if you want, you can post on the Aching Hearts forum.
Be sure to discuss ahead of time your feelings of depression so your doctor is aware and can be prepared to help you.
Best wishes for your upcoming surgery! We'll look forward to getting to know you better on the other message boards!
