    Poor you !

    Why didn't they do it all at once ?

    I have had gynae probs for years and have only just had a hysterectomy after so many procedures.

    I hope that it all gets done and dusted. Sometimes the drs just don't see the heartache. Shame on them

    I had a tumour in my uterus and had full abdominal hysterectomy at end of October.  Hope to get all clear at end of March. Glad it was all done at once, it is major surgery and I'm still getting niggly pain on right side and still feel battered and bruised.  Sorry you having to go through all this, maybe you should ask for a second opinion?

    Hi Margaret

    I live in Melbourne and thank goodness we opted to pay for private healthcare, it's expensive but has been worth it.  I am 44 and started menopause 3 yrs ago.  My worst problem now is lack of sleep but hope to go on HRT after tests to check clear of cancer then maybe I will get my life back, only those who experience the symptoms of menopause can understand and sympathise.

    good luck and get well soon.Deb
