41 and on list for hysterectomy

Posted , 5 users are following.

I had a 16cm cyst removed from my left overy Dec 14 and had nothing but problems since, my left overy is always sore and I have a lot of pain with it, after seeing my doctor at the hospital we discussed a full hysterectomy so I'm going on the list, while I'm waiting He wants me to have these injections that I have one every 3 months which switches the brain part to my overys, I'm a bit worried I'm 41 advice please if you can

    Hi emcharmed, I too had many problems with my womanly parts.. Twice being diagnosed with cervical cancer, but I was lucky to have been diagnosed early enough for treatment. I was so uptight and anxious every year when it came to my check up, in Aug 15 I requested a hysterectomy and was excepted , I had the surgery in Oct 15 and although the first few weeks were unpleasant, it was the best decision I have made. I too was 41. Although a forced menopause isn't the best, the side effects for me were much easier than the worry.. Please keep on top of your HRT with your GP don't suffer they can adjust the doses until it suits you.. 

    Hope all all goes well for you

    The worst part of recovery was the trapped wind in my shoulders which lasted about a week.. Getting up and moving helps get rid.. I also had mine done key hole so recovery was much quicker.

    I have a 13cm cystic mass that I am getting removed tomorrow.  I have opted from a full hysterectomy at that time.  I am scared, but ready for it to be over
