Re: Waiting to exhale

You are so much more than the sum of your parts. I figured my uterus had served me well and I just could not live with her prolapsing out of me. It was time to part ways. I won't miss carting around tons of all night maxi pads which I had to wear 24/7. I am 11 days post op and feel better already!!

Some of us really need to grieve the loss of our uterus. It's the most difficult thing I've gone through. Communicate with your doctor so he/she is aware of your feelings. And please ask us all your questions. We understand.
Thank you so much for what you said.You expressed my thoughts clearly.Being fertile makes me feel like a women as well,but i know it needs to be done,but as my other sister said I am more than my uterus.I will greive over the loss and I will keep you all up to date.thank you for understanding and the support.
