To all the ladies who have had a hysterectomy...

Posted , 3 users are following.

After my diagnosis of Fibro my cycles have become heavy and really painful on top of everything else. On Nov 21 I had my Uterus taken out through my belly. Now I am experiencing more pain than I thought one person could ever handle when I go to the bathroom. Is this normal? Is it because Fibro people feel pain more-so than others? Im taking laxatives but still have excrutiating pain. Any help would be appreciated while i wait to see the doc again this Friday. Thank you!
