    Hiya Teresa I’m 12 weeks today post total hysterectomy and readmission  following haemorrhage & infection.  I’m now back at work but I’m struggling  with sciatica and nerve type pain deep inside so going to doctors tomorrow. 

    My first 3 weeks post op I wasn’t sleeping, the sweats were horrendous as were the blues but I started on HRT Gel daily post surgery and it’s the best decision I made, my post menopause symptoms have all resolved and I feel really well apart from nerve pain. 

    Hope u start feeling well soon.

    Hi it's been 8 weeks since my opp was having night sweats and hot flushes started hrt and they have all but gone although I'm looking into natural remedies thanks to Welsh girl I'll stay on them till I sort it out. As for sleeping I'm still only 3-4 hours I'm also not back at work it depends on your job I do a lifting job with lots of bending my doctor would not let me go back

    Im 12 weeks out from a lap hysterectomy and an AP repair. I had some healing issues near the cervical incision site. Its healing and I’m back at work, I did take 10 weeks off work. I still have abdominal pain and I cant wear tight clothes yet. I had insomnia for about the first 6 weeks. I didnt sleep during the day either to help me sleep at night. I sleep better now but i wake up early. I’m on HRT and it’s helped. Just takes time to regulate. Hope you start feeling better soon. Good luck with your appointment.

    Hi had my tah 5 years ago.surgical menopause goes on for ever still can't sleep at night .use gel pillow. Lots cold water and flannel round neck on and off .Had two prolapases since and dropped bowel .start your pelvic floor exercises was not told to do this. Went back to exercise classes thinking good for me but everything weaker inside and think this contributed to prolapses. Now 5wks post op 2nd repair and posterior aswell this time. Have learnt no more lifting heavy objects high energy classes. Just walking swimming. Took Tesco menapause tablets found helped a bit.no hrt. But started oil primrose and cod liver oil really helped with tiredness. If you don't take hrt ask about eostregeon. Have just been prescribed this for four months to inset into vagina supposedly will strengthen vaginal wall don't know why they didn't give this to me 5 years ago when knew was not going to take hrt.

    Weight increase is likely but expect lengthy recovery time and don't over do it
