Quoting Fatty McRunnerPants:" I had a Total Abdominal Hysterectomy with Bisingual Oopherectomy(TAH/BSO) two and a half years ago. I'm ... [snip!] ... what I do. It was still the best decision I ever made, though. My quality of life is a million times better than it was pre op."
Thank you! Thankfully if I have it done I'm pretty sure they'll do it vaginally because it's due to a prolapsed uterus thats just getting worse and worse. I've been hoping to put it off as long as I can, but I'm suspecting my "putting it off" time is running out.
Also, I'm pretty sure I can keep my ovaries, so that's good. Mostly I'm just afraid of recovery. I've got an 18 month old and an almost 3 year old. I'm afraid of taking care of them on my own.
Sigh. I was really hoping to put it off a few more years but it's getting really painful, especially around AF when it's worse. Even sex it starting to hurt now and that sucks, haha.
Thanks, it's good to know about the recovery time though! I'm hoping it won't be a huge hospital stay either, since again, it'll be vaginal.
