Pre Hysterectomy Nerves – Sandra’s Story

Hi. I had a vaginal hysterectomy using a spinal block in January 2013 and am now 15 weeks post op. I would just like to let you all know it is nothing to worry about. I too was very nervous about having this done. I had a vaginal prolapse and must say since this op I have never felt better.

Back to work eight weeks after the procedure and experienced no problems which is hard to believe as i’m a carer for the elderly.

Anyone who is about to undertake this operation take it from one that was very scared to go ahead that it’s possibly the best decision any woman could make. Anybody that feels the need to talk I’m a good listener and hopefully can put your minds at ease. Good Luck x
