Hello, I am a 30 yr old mom of three was just told I need a Total Hysterectomy nxt mo

Hello, I am new to hyster sisters and decided to join because I was told I need a total hysterectomy next month in oct. I have struggled with heavy bleeding for 3/4 years after my 3rd baby was born. Tried bc pills, diet, exercise, mirena iud, and nothing helped. The mirena actually caused a seizure! I have very painful cysts on my ovaries too. And I wanted to know if anyone has any advice for me??? My surgery is soon, please anyone...Respond!!! Thank you!

Are you having a vaginal? abdominal? Robot assisted? Laproscopic?
What did you want to know?

I had a Total Vaginal Hyst 5 weeks ago. I FEEL GREAT!! Best thing I ever did!

Good luck to you!

Sorry I know you said you needed advise I'm having laproscopic. It's suppose to be easier to recover from some say they are fine after 2 weeks but for the most part that I have been reading is to rest afterwards an to take things slow. Be prepared to take time off. I will be taking all the advise I've learned here to the flip side. They say gas x and stool softener are are need lol. That's all I know right now but after I have my surgery I can let you know more. Which survey are you having?

WOW!!! Thank you for all three of you replying, I am so happy I joined this support group as I am feeling like I am a little girl getting ready to be sent off to school, LOL!!! It's soooo SCARY!!! Anyways, I am having a Total Vaginal Hysterectomy, not larascoptic. This was not offered to me as I live in a small town in Montana and am lucky the Dr actually KNOWS what she is doing (FROM CALIFORNIA, HE HE!!!) Yup I was told that I had to have the vaginal because I have Anemia, and she is worried about blood loss from an incision. Plus I am told it is a better recovery is that true? I was a little worried about her removing my cervix, but due to the anemia, this is a safer option for me, I guess??? Does the cervix provide a better sex-life afterwards? Not that I am loosing much beforehand anyways. 30 years old and been married since 18. Sex has always hurt, and even got worse after my kids. My dr tells me that pain will not be there after this surgery, hope that is also true? WOW, to the woman whom is only 28, I thought I WAS YOUNG for this! Now, I feel relieved that there are many younger women getting the surgery. I do not know what is wrong with me other than I bleed, is that why all of you have to have a hyst as well??? Sorry if that's too personal, just wondering if anyone else has this same problem as I do. Anyways, I really appreciate the responses and will cross my fingers for your surgeries, as well, Thanks!!!

I am 27 and had my hyst on July 7.I had adenomyosis which caused severe pain and very abnormal bleeding.I had a vaginal hysterectomy.I did not bleed at all after surgery.I was off pain meds the evening of my hyst.It took me 5 years to find a doctor who would do my hysterectomy because of my age.Like you,sex always hurt for me also.I no longer have that pain.YAY!!!I was back to walking at 2 weeks postop.My biggest issue postop was gas pains and a UTI.

I wish you the best with your upcoming surgeries.

YIPEE TO: jenn231983!!! So glad to hear that you do not have any more painful sex!!! Seriously I do not think any woman should be cursed with that!!! Yup you are VERY young, but my doctor wanted to do a hysterectomy on me when I was 23, after the bloody birth of my last child... and I do mean bloody! I hemorrhaged blood the whole pregnancy and almost did not stop! Stupid me, I REFUSED her offer because I thought, man I'm 23 and have my whole life ahead of me, yeah right!!! And about one year later all my problems started. Boy do I wish I had just taken her wise advice then, so that now I would NOT be where I'm at I wonder why they would not let you get one even thought you were really young if you needed it??? I have a cross between what you have and endometriosis and it SUCKS! I have a question, did you or any of you experience any weight gain, I read it's a possible side effect? My dr said that will not happen, but I have read other threads on this website regarding this, any thoughts?

Re: Hello, I am a 30 yr old mom of three was just told I need a Total Hysterectomy nx

Hi. I wanted to add that even though you are in a small town, it may be a good idea to travel to a large town to get a 2nd opinion of whether you do need this surgery. Go to a teaching hospital.

There is no shame in rescheduling the appointment if you need to. - This is your body.

If you decide to do this, let them know that you are scheduled for surgery and that's why you would like to get an appointment quickly.

Then, you will find out if there are other ways of dealing with your problem. Or they may raise good issues about the type of surgery that is best. Example: if they think it could be related, then, may want to consider removing appendix. Or perhaps suggest taking out both ovaries or keeping them or ???

if they think if could be cancer related, then use a gyn/oncologist since that would be the best way to attack it.

Good luck whatever you decide.

Sippy,Not everyone gains weight from having this surgery.I did however,but my doctor and I kind of thought it would happen.I was extremely anemic and sick constantly from the horrible "crime scene" bleeding the I experienced.Therefore,I had lost well over 40 lbs in the year prior to my hyst.My grandmother and my aunt both had a hysterectomy but did not experience the wight gain.Everyone is different and experience different things after this surgery.Even if I had been "average" weight before I hyst,I wouldn't have minded the weight gain.I could handle the extra weight as long as the pain and bleeding stopped.
