Hi all, I just turned 30 last week and am having a full hysterectomy on 14 May. I have 3 boys aged 6, 4 and 2 all born premature the youngest at 28 weeks. I also lost a baby at 19 weeks. I have had 8 operations in the last 2 years due to cysts, abcess' blocked tubes the list is endless. I ruptured mu uterus having my last child and suffer constant infections since. I had terrible periods often required blood transfusions and medication to stop the bleeding.
I have been on the waiting list for 2 years for hysterectomy and now its here I feel rotten about the whole thing. All my boys were born emergency c section so I have a very small insight into what the op entails...im terrified. I cant sleep properly and very tearful and angry my tummy is churning and I feel just so anxious about the whole thing.
Im angry because I would have loved more children. Im sick of people telling me I should be grateful for the 3 I have, of course im grateful I love them more than anything in the world but if I had the choice I would have had more, I cant bear the thought of never having a new born baby again and feel so annoyed that its through no choice of my own this operation needs doing I know that.
I bleed terribly after surgery and need transfusions and so this worries me alot.
I worry about my husband and my boys as im so used to doing everything for them and dont take too well to being cared for .....im the mummy, lol. I know I will be out of action for a while and I love taking care of my family, cooking, cleaning and making sure everything is just so.
Has anyone else suffered these feelings and how long did it really take you to recover from your op?
Thanks so much. Xxx
