might have to have hysterectomy

Hi I am new to all this and today, I get told I might need to have a hysterectomy, now what worries me right now is I have had 3 C-sections and have a terrible pouch or hangover as they say, and it would only make it worse, would they consider taking some of it off to prevent it getting worse? it depresses me as it is and this is what is putting me off having it done right now.

I havent had a hysterectomy yet but due to have one in July. As far as I understand if it is done laprascopic then they won't cut in the same place as a cesearian?


Hi Kaytee,

Thank you for your message. We're sorry that your previous surgery has left you feeling unhappy. When you see your surgeon to be consented for your hysterectomy (if you go ahead with it of course), you could ask him/her if they were able to do a re-fashioning of the scar area and they will be able to give you a clinical assessment, i.e. see if this is possible. In most cases like yours, the surgeon will say 'no', simply because he/she wants to minimise the amount of surgery carried out on the body, but this is just a general guide and your surgeon may say differently.

Best Wishes,

Team Eve.

Hi, thank you for your reply, it turns out they haven't spoke to me yet about having a cone biopsy or hysterectomy. They decided to send me or an MRI scan instead, I went on Friday as they said I needed it doing promptly and now waiting on results from them. But extra worried now with how urgent they made it sound, will keep you updated

Thank you for keeping us up to date. Please do let us know when you get your results.

Speak soon,
