What's my op called

Hello all
Firstly happy thankgiving to all the American sisters . I do envy you this celebration as i believe that all countries should have a day to just be glad of who they are. I am sure that all the rest of the world wishes you happiness this of all years.. particularly the people of New York who have been so beleagued .

What i want to know is what you call my operation? I had what we Brits a call a partial abdominal hysterectomy... that is uterus out through abdominal incision but ovaries and cervix left in ( i have looked at your abbreviations but can't work out which one is me)

What did women do before this site... who on earth did they ask. cos i have already asked loads of questions that no book has been able to deal with ?... all power to our site is what i say.

Dear Susannah:

Thanks for the heartfelt Thanksgiving wishes for all of us. This year will be different in many ways but we all have alot to be thankful for as we have grown much closer together as a country.

I believe the term you are looking for is supra-cervical (some call it sub-total) hysterectomy. The abbreviation we use is SAH. I had the same operation with exception that my ovaries were taken also.

Best wishes to you.

She is right

She is right. You had a Supra Cervical Abdominal Hyst. Also known as SAH. I just had mine on 11/14. I feel better now than I have in a while. Hope you do to.
