Getting annoyed of people!

Don't let the other people get to you. They have no idea what you have been through. I had people same the same things to me. I'm 31 and I had surgery in March. I finally would just smile and walk away.

Hi Tracey
This is a first response on this board for me. But I also post on a EA list. I had a EA in Nov and it didn't work. Anyway, after I posted on that list that I was having a Hysterectomy. The very first reply was . Suzanne you should not be doing a Hysterectomy for convienence! Oh ya right its for convienence!!! NOT! I've researshed this a long time ago. Tried the EA . Didn't work. I'm just glad I found a DR who doesn't beat around the bush trying EVERY OTHER method around. Lets just get it done so I can get on with my life. I figure 8 years of working around certin weeks of the month is enough. So lets not listen to those who are not walking in our shoes.

hiya i also had an EA in jan but it didnt work i also am a member of an EA group called EA disscussion group. I have tried every thing from tablets to the coil and then the EA. This wasnt an easy choice for me either, but im always ill and tired and ive had enough of feeling this way. This is the best choice for me. I would also never have a TVH for the convienence and the doctors wouldnt allow it anyway. And i dont think you would either Take care Tracey x x xx

I'm 26 and my insurance company just denied my pre-cert because of the fact I'm 26. I'm sure in the week they've had to review my request, that the pre-cert gyn doc had time to look over 6 YEARS of records and gained an adequate understanding of my situation. In the letter, his comment was " is there any contraindication to a 3-month trial of hormone suppression of periods along with NSAIDS for her pain, or has this already been done?"... Freaks, how can you pre-cert a patient, let alone DENY the pre-cert when you have absolutely NO IDEA of what I've gone through and done ... Denial, because I'm 26!!!

Everyone who's thrown my age into my face, I throw a brief run down of what I go through. They immediately so, OMG, you're going to feel so much better, like a different woman. But ya know what Tracey, its our body, our doctors wouldn't agree if it wasn't right, so to all those people who come @ us with out age, BLAH to them ... You and your doctor know its time, and that's all that matters. My surgery is May 12 (self-pay or insurance, doesn't matter), so I wish you luck.

Hiya Tracey Ignore the lot of them! I've been asking for this op for years. In the past 17 yrs I have been told 'you have a low pain threshold', 'there's nothing we can find, keep taking the painkillers', 'it's all in your mind, we recommend you see a psychiatrist' and, my own personal favourite, 'have a baby and it'll stop', (this to an 18 yr old uni student who didn't have a steady boyfriend and was a virgin...) Now, finally, at the age of 35, I have found a dr who has heard of adeno, found the cysts on my ovaries and cervix and is going to sort it out for me. I'll be a monkeys uncle if I'm going to take any notice of anyone who thinks I'm too young or having this done for convenience! Keep your chin up! I'll probably post an 'I'm out!' message before you go in for your surgery (I go into hospital on Sunday, op on Monday) Keep busy, you'll be starting your new life before you know it. It'll all be good!

I'm 33 and I wish I didnt have to have surgery but because of my HUGE Fibroid I had to have it done. I've had people say the same thing to me about being so young. I dont think many people would choose to have surgery and have organs removed unless it was for a good reason. I dont know why people dont understand that! Until I found this board I didnt know any other young women that had had a hysterectomy. I kinda felt like a freak because I had this thing growing in me. And I didnt have any period problems until about a year ago. Now, I'm happy about having my surgery and looking forward to not having a period!! lol....Hope all goes well for you, it will be fine, even though we are young thangs!! LMHO!!!

Getting annoyed of people!

I've been second guessed by people having my surgery done. Questioning if there was anything left to try!!!!

I actually had someone tell me their doctor would not do a hysterectomy until the patient is 40!!! I couldn't believe it.

I had endo since I was a teenager and I was diagnosed at 20. I've had 4 laps and one laparatomy, tried every medical treatment, and nothing helped me.

I've had doctors not help me. But, I'm thankful I found a doctor who read my medical history and listened to me. I had my surgery in March and I feel better than I have in years.

Don't let people who don't understand what you are going through to judge you. You are doing this for you and a better quality of life.

People are so quick to judge. But if they could only walk a mile in your shoes. Chin up and hold your head high. Everybody is an expert, (or they think they are).
Ignore them, You will feel soooooooo much better when its done with.
Good luck and Quick and Speedy Recovery to all my Sisters.

This is what bugs me. When I told my friend I was having a hysterectomy because I almost died because of anemia due to fibroids, her response was "don't do it because my sex life will change". What kind of response is that. If we had to have gall bladder surgery, or thyroids (do they take thyroids out?) or kidneys taken out to become healthy we wouldn't get all of nonsense. Whether you're 20 or 50 if you need it, you need it. I'm glad I have the doctor I have.
