Great opportunity to participate in an online study about hysterectomy recovery!

Hi gals,

If you will notice at the bottom of every page on and rotating into the banner positions of pre-op and post-op forums there is an ad banner about a study from the University of Iowa for hysterectomy recovery. Your participation is requested.

$$ There is compensation for those that fill out the survey and send it in!

Just click on the button below or here for more info:

surely participate

Dear Kathy,

I will be glad to participate in a survey when I get back from my surgery this week.

I also want to thank every sister for her help and the lovely card I received this morning. I am anxiously awaiting my 1/2 hour trip to Boise to my hospital and to get this "show on the road"!

My bowels feel a little rumbly from the bowel prep yesterday, but other than that--I am rarin' to go!!!!

Is changing your mind allowed.. we ARE women!

I think this is a great idea, Kathy! I'm so glad that you decided to involve Hystersisters in this study.

I tried to participate (am 8 days post-op right now) but was not eligible. To be involved you need to have a U.S. Social Security number. (I'm Canadian.)

I sure hope that many of my American sisters are able to participate. I think that it's really important that the medical community, in particular, becomes more aware of the incomparable health benefits that result from the unique brand of support and information available here (and only here).

Will there be a way that the rest of us can access the results?

I checked it out and I'm not eligible because it's been too long since my surgery. Just wanted to mention in case someone checks it out later... then realizes they waited too long- if you are post-op.. you have to be no more than 3wks post op to participate.

Hi Gals, and thanks for considering participating in the survey. Yes, once the results are in, I expect we will have access to the results and we will be able to show them off!

Yes, the survey is for pre-op ladies and recently post-op (within the first 3 weeks). Please do not let your survey sit for too long....the research team needs them back soon!

Thanks so much!

Just a note for the ladies on the survey:

It's fairly short for a university research survey (trust me!) and gives you a very good sounding board for things that you do and don't like about the site, the support you receive, and how you get it. It took me all of 5-10 minutes to fill out (which for those of us with says quite a bit!)

It can be anonymous should you so choose, so don't be shy! Fill out those surveys!
