Looking for Support - would love to hear from women who had to undergo this surgery before having children

Greetings my Sisters,

I am in the Atlanta metro area and had a complete abdominal hysterectomy 2 weeks ago. I am 43 years old and have never had children biologically. I’m looking to find a support group of women who have had to undergo this surgery before having children. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

I am 40, had my surgery age 39 and am in surgical menopause. I never had children. My surgery was laparoscopic tho, no large abdominal cuts. Let us know what type of suggestions or answers you are seeking : - )

Thank you so much for your reply. I am having some issues coping emotionally. Even though I’m in therapy, I would love to be a part of a support group of women who have experienced the same.

Hello,
I'm new here... I'm 42! Had 3 miscarriages and my last miscarriage literally destroyed me! We found out we were pregnant at 12 weeks, baby stopped growing at 9. I have a cantaloupe size fibroid that was growing along side of our baby and we were told after numerous tests, that was the cause.. I had gastric sleeve surgery in January hoping the drastic weight loss would help reduce If not cure the fibroid. Had repeat test to find out it's now 18cm and needs to be removed! November 2021 is my surgical date and I'm petrified.. So many thoughts to process.. I'm here if you ever want to talk..

Mcooper813, I'm sorry for your losses. When I had my surgery, I was 48, single, childless, and dealing with a grapefruit sized fibroid pressing on my bladder; I was already facing the prospect of never having children, and this made it final. I hit a wall of depression after my 6 week checkup, when my emotions surrounding the surgery stirred up unresolved grief surrounding my mother's death in 2013. Thanks to the caring support of the sisters in this forum and two wonderful therapists, I was able to process my feelings and move forward with my life. This forum has a wonderful article filled with suggestions on commemorating the lives that were taken too soon, and the lives that will never be; I belong to a knitters group, where one of my ongoing projects is making tiny hats and blankets for parents who have had miscarriages or stillborn babies, so that they can have something tangible to memorialize the lives they've lost. Sending you all my warmest hugs, and best wishes for continued health and healing!

Hey girl! I’m 35 and single and no kids. Had a complete hysterectomy last week. My heart is shattered. I’m actually on antidepressants. First time in my life and I’m not even sure that’s the right step to take. In fact I even just posted a thread before I saw yours because I’m not sure how to properly grieve this. I’m not sure if I should even be on medication. Like maybe I should just feel the grief, you know? It’s painful. It hurts. I was laying in bed the other night thinking about one day being pregnant and I had to remind myself that that’s not an option anymore.
