Today is the anniversay of my hysterectomy. Three years today. I know it is an emotional day for me because I have had severe problems from that surgery. When the day of surgery comes I just begin to think how healthy I was before the surgery and that now I am on disability from it. I have written some other posts here, maybe you remember them. I am the one that had the nerves damaged to the abdominal wall and the nerve damage spread. It turned into a disease called Reflex sympathetic Dystrophy. On the anniversay of the surgery I feel such sorrow that I had this done because it changed my life so. I know that no one can help me with this but ocassionally feel the need to vent. I try and usually cope pretty well with what life has dealt me but today when I took the morphine to control the pain I just cried. I can not begin to tell you what I and my life have gone through in the past three years. The test, financial loss, emotional hurt and adjustments. I feel sorrow for my husband whos life has been changed, cry for the profession that I have lost, for the future that I should have had. Dont get me wrong I am so happy for those who had this surgery, did well and whos life has been improved by it. I also know that most people do well with a hysterectomy. Some have problems that cause distress but either can be fixed or fix themself with time. I just dont know how to forgive myself for having this surgery and having that choice change my husband life. Thank God for this wonderful man who has stood by me. Sorry for the long complaining story. Just need to do it once a year. Marcia

Hi Marcia A,

I am sorry to hear what you have & are going through. My prayers are with you, and I hope with time it will be better for you and your family.

I totally agree with you - this site is wonderful, and it is amazing when you are feeling down how by voicing your thoughts or helping other with your experience you know you are not alone.

Take care, and as the saying goes...Don't worry - be happy.

Dear Marcia, I'm sorry you are still suffering. Please don't blame yourself for making the decision to have a hysterectomy. You made the choice that at the time seemed right. You are fortunate to have such a loving, caring husband. I wish I could find a way to help make you feel better.
