Hi, this is a great site for informatin and support. I was so glad when I found it. I am sorry your family is so far away. But at least your husband can be there the first couple of weeks.

Iam about 17 day post op and am up and doing light housework. I had a laposcopic hysterectomy, both my ovaries and my uterus. I could not do everything on my own right now. Do you have friends nearby who could help out a little? I remember reading a couple of posts on here by women who had friends come in and help out. You'll need to take it easy and rest a lot. I push myself too hard sometimes but I am working on building up strength because I return to work on the 12th.

Good luck to you and you can alwasy find support here.

Hi VB <3 I'm glad you found this site, it has been so helpful to me. I still don't have all the answers but lots of the ladies here do! I've been reading, reading, reading!
Did your doctor recommend what kind of procedure you will need?

I'm glad you found us. We understand and you're not alone. You may need extra help post op. is there a church you're involved with, that can be a good support system. It sounds like your husband is in the military. Is there support available to you there? I believe there is a support system for spouses of military members. It would be nice to have people bring you dinners, help with the kids, etc.

I am sorry you're dealing with this at such a young age and with your family far away.
