The reluctant patient! – Karen’s Story

I was totally against having a hysterectomy. Even though my family was complete, it was something I didn’t want. Even on the morning of the operation, if the consultant had said we’d found something new to try, I would have packed up and come home.

Now I’m through it and I am 100% better for it! I have more energy, feel happier and no longer have heavy, draining periods for weeks at a time.

The only thing I have to sort out is my night sweats and hot flushes, but I am trying various herbal remedies to try and sort these out. I am now very happy and am glad I went through this major op that has allowed me to get my life back on track. It is a very complicated operation, but, for me, it is one of the best things that has ever happened!
