This has been my biggest regret. I forgot to ask pre op about pictures and by the time I asked at my post op appt., I was told no pictures were taken and I was really bummed. Good for all of you guys that were able to get your pictures.

Just got back from Doc (was concerned about a little stinging and seperation (very slight) in my incision. I swear I am like a celeb there now! I must have had the most hideous uterus to date at my Doc's practice. Everyone I see there knows me by the pictures and are all like wow that was you? I think I will start charging to speak to them!!!! lol I never thought my 15 minutes of fame would be over something like this.. was hoping more like lotto winner or something!

Not for the faint of heart.....

Click on "my photos" to see pictures of my uterus after my hysterectomy.

I was very glad I had the pictures taken. It really did help me get a sense of closure regarding my surgery.

I'm not brave enough to let ANYONE see mine. My family has asked, but I said no. But thank you for sharing. It really has put mine into perspective (your's has a defined shape - mine is ... just a huge blob).

My own request! pictures ;-)

I brought my digital camera with me and asked my doc to take pics! I have several of the tumors themselves as well as others of the tumors plus ute.

I had also used temporary tattoos and wrote on my belly "don't f*** up", which really lightened the mood in the OR and everyone, including my doc (knew he would), loved it. He even took pics with a next to the writing.

I felt like after all I'd gone through, I needed the closure. My partner thought, and still somewhat thinks, that I'm nuts, but it's helped me get through this process.

It's also helped me to realize that I really did need the surgery. It wasn't something I could have put off much longer. Between my ute and the fibroids, I was carrying around about a soccer ball sized lump of pain.

MJD, I was curious, but now I know I can upload my own photos of my ute. Thanks

Where do you click to see your photos? I am curious since there were no pictures taken during my surgery.

If you click on MJs screen name - at the bottom it says My Photos. It's an education.

I was refused the option to see or keep my parts. keeping them I can see, as they were needed for testing...but I could've planted them with a tree as some people do with their placentas.

I am still annoyed....I REALLY wanted a video- but that request was FLAT OUT refused, as were pictures of the procedure

Glad you have pics though, I would think that would bring some peace

What a great idea. I would love to have had pics of my surgery. I too had pics of my Endo surgery and all my in-vitro procedures and births, so why not my hyst? I will ask my doc if he took any (which he normally does) and ask for copies or at least to see them. He said my Endo was rampant, so I'd like to see what that looks like. I am finishing my pre-reqs to get my nursing degree, so this stuff definitely interests me. MJD2491 thanks for sharing your pics. What I didn't understand is if they are just sending it to pathology, why sew it up???
