I am 65. A year ago this forum kept me sane while waiting for a total abdominal hysterectomy. I had had a chequered history of bowel and ovarian symptoms. After insisting on further investigation I was found to have an ovarian cyst (which was renamed a benign tumour after my operation). By this time I had really slowed down, was tired all the time and could only wear tracksuit trousers which were also becoming tight. Anyway, op was ok. Bikini cut and no stitches externally. I walked a bit more each day to help recovery and had no problems. I didn’t get instantly slim and had to buy larger trousers. However, it was at the 10 month mark that I finally realised that I felt good - really good. We bought electric bikes and have cycled miles. I lost 7 pounds (but am still overweight) and suddenly realised that my pre op jeans were too big. Ladies, there is light at the end of the tunnel. I wish you all well.
