A piece of helpful advice....

I've got a very 'spiritual' friend who gave me this advice...
In the run up to surgery, take every negative thought and bad feeling that you have - it can be about the surgery, relationships, anything at all - and mentally stuff it into your uterus. Then when the uterus goes, the bad stuff goes too.

Oh, and does anyone else find that the people who say 'You'll be fine' are always the people who haven't had a hyst....?
Was talking to one woman, and said I was having the op this Friday, and she said 'Oh, have you been having problems?' Durrrr - no actually, I just thought I'd have my womb ripped out for the sake of it.....lol

Best wishes to everyone...

I know what you mean!!!!

Hi Madmaxlady,

I know exactly what you are going through, because until someone has gone through what you are experiencing they should not talk.

I've had women saying isn't there any type of medicine I can take to make the pain go away? Or why have a hyster. Isn't there an alternative route to your pain?

And all I say is no!!!!!

I've been dealing with endo for over 14 yrs. 14 yrs TOO-LONG!!!
And now they have found a fibroid in my uterus which is growing and very uncomfortable. Alot of heavy periods and huge blood clots. I'm also on iron pills from the anemia I have.

So you have to do what is best for and don't listen to anyone, but yourself.

Take Care
And when they tell you oh you'll be fine, I would tell them from your mouth to Gods ears. And I'm sure that will shut them up.l
