Hello Janice

Welcome to HysterSisters. I am glad you found us and have decided to join the group.
Well officially you are a Lady In Waiting (liw)
After you get back from the Castle you are an official and we polish your crown while you are away!
I too am 50. I am almost 7 weeks post op and I feel terrific. My anemia is gone, I have given away my pads, no more flooding and ruined clothes. Today it really hit me how I can now go through life and vacations and fun times without having to calculate when my period will be and what I can or cannot do.
I am glad you are at a time in your life and of such a mind set that you too can look forward to being on the otherside.
There are wonderful pull down menu's on the home page with lot's of valuable information to assist you both pre and post op. And the Hormone Jungle is great if you decide to use HRT. Here is the link:
It sounds like you have quite a bit of work to be done. I did too.
I counted a dozen different things wrong in my surgery report and actually have 2 surgeries at the same time. But the good news is we just go to sleep and wake up and it is over. And we have begun our recovery and are on our way to a new life.
