Hi Bayelke

Im 35, will be 36 this month. Im having a TVH on Friday. I only have one ovary so they are hoping I will be able to keep it. I do have children, I started VERY early. My oldest Nate is 19, Joel is 15 and Ambyr is 13. Nate has a little girl, almost 8 months old. So im also a grammy!

I have had trouble all of my life after my period started, mostly just bleeding heavily, and ALOT of pain. It has just grown worse over the years.

Good luck to you in the future.

Hi bayelke,
I'm not as young as you; I'm 41, no kids. I have a 25-year-old stepson from my husband's first marriage. My husband and I decided long ago not to have kids.

Anyway, the real reason I'm responding is to tell you that all will be fine. I had a subtotal abdominal hysterectomy on 1/24 and I can honestly say that the waiting and fretting were the worst part. Don't get me wrong, there is some pain associated with the recovery, but certainly nothing you can't handle. Just do what your Dr and nurses tell you and you will be just fine. I'm almost 2-weeks post-surgery now and am doing very well.

I did a lot of research and was very comfortable with my decision. Do the research, ask a lot of questions and be comfortable with what you are doing. This is major surgery, so it's natural to be scared.

Good luck to you. Take care.

I had a tubal in 2001 to stop the endodemetrios from growing, but decided not to have children as well. now I'm feeling a little guilty. My hubby is OK w/this.

I'm sorry bayelke, that you are having a hard time. Were you hoping to have children before your tubal?
