Someone's gotta be from Massachusetts!!!

Hi Gypsystone,

Welcome This is a great site to get opinions and points of view...all very helpful to help you sort through the pros and cons. Its such a scary process....i was able to read under "new" but was unable to post...I'm still new to this too and I'm not sure why that happened.

But I wanted you to know you came to the right place...all I can suggest is keep on asking questions and doing research and find out what is best for YOU!

Everyone here is so very helpful...i'm sure you'll hear soon...hang in there...wow quadruplets...oh my! That must be fun and quite challenging!

Welcome to the site! I had my TAH back in FEbruary and am still dealing with a bit of discomfort around the incision site and some swelling after a day of yardwork, etc. but have to say its the best thing I"ve done and can honestly say that I felt an immediate sense of improvement in my physical wellbeing. Even with the pain of the surgery, a huge amount of discomfort was gone that I'd just gotten kind of used to being there all the time. July 6th is right around the corner and I'm sure you're nervous but hystersisters has some great tips for preparing, and recovering! If I can be of any help, write away! I'd be happy to share back some of the great advice I got here!

Hey MAborn. I grew up right next door in Feeding Hills. My mom was a gym teacher in Westfield for about 30 years. I love New England so I am happy to say I am still in the area.

Hey Ann!
I have a cousin that lives in Westfield and some family friends that have lived in Feeding Hills for a long time. She, too was a gym teacher, but has been retired for a long time. I'm not sure where she taught, though. I lived in Huntington until I was 2.

I am relocating to MA in August. I have not scheduled my surgery but should soon. Anyone had relief from Endo or bicornute uterus through their hysterectomy?

Endo, yes. My DP had extreme endo and after the TAH hasn't had a problem at all. The tough part was, she had both ovaries removed and can't take most HRT because it triggers endo regrowth... so she has had trouble with hot flashes, hair thinning, etc. We're talking to the doc about use of testosterone to see if that helps, but most natural HRT even has soy and she was told to stay away from that as well. If you can keep your ovaries you may be in a better position. I had my TAH in February due to a very large fibroid and am amazed at how much better I feel in many ways! I'm glad I tried other solutions first, but I'm also glad that I went ahead with the surgery when I did because my life had really begun to turn unpleasant!

You and I have a few things in common.
1. September one-year hysterversary
2. Haven't visited boards lately
3. We're neighbors! I am in Lunenburg. I am often in Groton. I love Groton Library, with "Open To All" etched in it's stone entrance, and I have taken to buying most of my beef at blood farm.
