Hysterectomy and breast pain – Ann’s Story

I had a hysterectomy but fallopian tubes left in May 2013 because of 20 years of being anaemic due to heavy periods pain in my groin left me breathless and doubled over in pain, it was the final straw for me as nothing word work to stop my heavy periods.
When I had the hysterectomy I was told I had fibroids inside my womb and on the outside and this had caused my heavy flow, but since then my breast have gone 2 sizes bigger from DD to F cup but my right breast aches I am 43 years old and my mum had breast cancer but in her left side just a tad concerned. My daughter is 18 and she suffers terrible with her periods just don’t want her to go through what I have.
