Yes, CorbiAnne, I too had to cope with large fibroids and I feel so much better since my hysterectomy. By Christmas you will really be feeling like celebrating!

Re: Will I feel better after surgery?

I know I'm hoping to feel like a new woman after this. I'm willing to put up with the recovery pain, to not have the constant pain.

Re: Will I feel better after surgery?

YES, you will feel better after surgery. I'm one month post-op, and I feel like I almost have too much energy now! I didn't even have abnormal bleeding and I wasn't anemic at all. I just had large fibroids pushing everything way out of place. My dr. told me that in one month I wouldn't believe how much better I felt, and she's right. I don't feel like I have a football jammed inside of my lower abdomen. I have a bladder again, too!!!! Just make sure you take it easy during your recovery. Give yourself time to heal and recuperate from the surgery.

I am 6 weeks out and feel like a new person. It takes time to get here but it sure is nice not to be in pain and not to be bleeding.

I love to read these positive experiences. I am so ready to feel better, have energy, and get on with life - I just have to believe that everything is going to be better.

Re: Will I feel better after surgery?

You will feel SO much better!

I had a large uterine fibroid (the size of a 4.5 month pregnancy)

I knew the back hurting, and the big belly was from the fibroid, however I didn't realize how bad I really felt! I had constant low grade cramps, leg pain when I jogged and I was always tired. I never felt good...ever. Oh, and I pooped maybe every 2-3 days if I was lucky. I always felt like something was infected, or sick...hard to explain.

I never dreamed it was all tied to my fibroid, but it seems to be the case. I feel better than I have felt in a very long time. I am super glad I had it done. Because I had gotten so used to feeling cruddy, my recovery seems like a breeze. I feel better than ever and I am truly struggling with staying still. lol. My only regret is that I didn't think to question all my symptoms sooner.

Take good care of yourself right after surgery, relax, follow orders and before you know it, you will be on this side answering questions like yours. Good luck to ya!

Re: Will I feel better after surgery?

I agree with the "second chance at life." For years I've felt miserable, and I was completely lethargic for a year before going into cardiac arrest for losing so much blood (hemoglobin 1.1!). I almost died. So...

YES! It does get 1000000000000000000 times better!

Good luck!
