On My Road To Recovery After My Hysterectomy – Chris’s Story

Hi, I have just had my Vaginal Hysterectomy about two and a half weeks ago and I’m not feeling too bad now. At the time I didn’t know what to expect due to not reading the booklets & feeling sick looking at them.

I found the after experience a worry with a lot of pains in my stomach & feeling tired. The thought of stretching & overdoing things, being on my own looking after 5 children, two of them teenagers not doing a lot & no family, just a kind friend who has been a help

I’ve done pretty well though and I did invest in a hand grabber which has helped a great deal in getting things I would not be able to. I also got a bath seat & a mobility scooter to get around. I find now I am mobile enough to get around on my own without feeling tired and it’s a blessing in disguise and hope my story is of help to you kind regards x
