Any woman who has a hysterectomy does so for her own reasons. I had a total abdominal hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy 7 weeks ago, two weeks after celebrating my 40th Birthday.
Hi, I had a total hysterectomy and bilateral salpingo oophorectomy five weeks ago. I met with the anaesthetist pre-op & we discussed the anaesthetic & epidural, which I opted for, we didn’t discuss post-op pain relief, as I didn’t realise that he was in charge of this too!
I posted my ‘heavy periods‘ story on here some weeks ago, I am now 10 days post-op. Arrived at the hospital 25th March at 7am on a very snowy Monday morning, had spent all weekend worrying that my op would be cancelled again, due to the bad weather, but luckily the phone didn’t ring.
