I had a huge fibroid larger than 1500 ml. Went to myomectomy but ended up needing a hysterectomy due to bleeding during surgery. I had a subtotal hysterectomy, cervix and ovaries were kept. I was very anxious about everything: surgery, what I would be like after surgery, anesthesia, death, every f thing. I had read and watched all videos around the internet about how bad it is after a hysterectomy, that sex is never the same again, that your body will look just awfult, etc. But the fibroid was *so* large, I looked 7 months pregnant without a doubt, and I could not walk properly and felt very sick all the time. Menstruation hurt like hell. In the second half of my menstrual cycle I lied in bed all the time and felt really bad.
Just wanted to let everyone know that 3 days after surgery I was walking around the house and already feeling better than before the surgery. One month after surgery I was really eager to drive and to swim. I was so cheerful and had my energy back. Sex is just like before I had any problem, and this means much better than when I had the huge fibroid inside me. Now it is 4 months after surgery and the only physical problem I have is that I gained weight while I had the fibroid due to not being able to exercise. I feel just fine!!
I am so grateful for the doctor that performed my surgery and for medicine in general. I am just so happy I had the surgery and feel like a fool for having worried so much.
Just wanted to post this to all of you who are going through the trouble I was going thru. I advise you to get a subtotal hysterectomy, too. I am happy I kept my cervix. Some doctors told me they would not let me keep it but I did not choose them.
Medical science is just wonderful, go ahead, fix what went wrong with you and continue to live life!
