How old is everyone?

Well, I'm 35. I had a tubal after my second child, so I'm finished using it and am so tired of bleeding all the time. Ok, not all the time, but most of the time. And the pain, let's not even go there. I went in for a D&C and a laporoscopy about 3 weeks ago to see if that would help anything and of course it didn't and the doc found some things to be concerned about and told me it would be in my best interest to just go ahead and have the hyst. So, here I go...4/11. TAH. Keeping my ovaries. That's all.

How old?

I'm 42, 43 in July. My surgery is later this month. I have had age comments from both sides-- that I'm either too young, or else "well on the way to menopause age anyway" so why not have a hysterectomy.

For me, I think people are just trying to think of something, anything, to say about it all. So they say whatever pops into their heads. Kinda funny!

Turning 44 tomorrow. Have two kids 9, and 12. Have suffered with increasing pain and longer and longer periods over the past three years and while depo worked great for me, it wasn't a permanent solution due to bone loss. The pill has been a disaster, making my condition even worse. I have my pre-op appointment on Monday, my birthday, and am getting nervous as my doc is very conservative. I really want my cervix gone, as I have adeno (seen on ultrasound) and I from what I've read adeno can affect the cervix as well. I just want it all gone. I'm also nervous about pain control after surgury as I have an ulcer that recently acted up. My doc has been also very conservative about pain control, and it was my shrink who actually solved the problem by giving my fentanyl patches, which have worked great, although they make me very tired. Here's to a good appointment on Monday!

I am 47. I have one son. Had huge fibroids in and out of the uterus. Was equiv. size to 22 wks. pregnant. Had complete AH. Didn't see much of a point in keeping overies at this age. They were slowing down anyway. Went on .05 estrogen and so far, so good. Incision hurts, gas pains, other organs still trying to figure out where to go! Other than that, not too bad!

hey doublejremmy!!

I am 34 and also have no children of my own. I just had a TAH and my ovaries out. I won't lie, I thought I didn't want kids, and I know that I really DON'T, but it still feels like something has been taken away from you. I can't really explain it. But it ***** and we will both be ok!!! I have done nothing but CRY for the past five days because my hormones (or lack OF them) have been taking me for a total ride!!! My email address is [email protected] if you need to talk outside of here. Would love to talk, I know what you're going through!!! I'll tell you my sordid story later of what led up to my innards being outted. It is a scary one, and I "guess" I'm just glad to be healthy (for now) and alive (for now!)...I had cancer. Not fun, but everything turned up clean for now!!! Please write to me sometime!!! Take care of yourself, please write!
