Hysterectomy – Gillian’s Story

Well what can I say, I had a hysterectomy because of painful periods. It all started with my appendix when I got rushed in a week before Xmas in 2005 when they cut me open and found out I had this condition.It was very frightening. In 2006 I had numerous scans and trips to hospital to see the surgeon, I was taken into hospital where they decided there then to give me an Hysterectomy and in August I had it done.

For a while it was very sore but the best news it will get better and then 6 weeks later you go and see the doctor and ask him for hormone replacement therapy and so you take it and boy oh boy you start to feel like a new woman.

And 6 years later you feel fantastic it is the best thing ever. Why go through the pain and the mess. Have it done, you will feel fantastic.
