How do you deal with unwanted advice and comments???

I had a couple people say "oh that is so drastic" but for the most part the women I spoke had said to me..."you'll feel so much better, you'll so happy you did it"

Try not to let those negative people get you down. And I guess I would say don't speak of the surgery to them. Some people don't have a clue what it is like to live with pain on a day to day basis. I am 11 days post op and I am glad I did it.

Of course I knew many woman that had a hyster so that helped me. Do you know some women that have had it done already? They would probably all encourage you to do it.

You'll be so happy to have it over with so you won't be in pain all the time.

Good luck to you. Sparkler :muscle: be strong and of good courage!!

How do you deal with unwanted advice and comments???

I am so glad you posted that question and that there were so many positive responses. I too have been having that same problem. Not as much. There are 3 co-workers who have had hysters and were very supportive, but some who questioned my decision. One even mentioned the word "radical". I just told her she doesn't know my symptoms because I haven't told her about them because they are somewhat embarrassing and I am too private of a person to share. She has since shown more support. That's it, end of discussion.
