I was diagnosed with endo in 2005, had various surgeries to fix and a 6-month round of zoladex.
I'm now having to have a full hysterectomy due to endo and other gyne issues. Also may end up with a second surgery due to the belief that my uterus is also plastered to my bowel.
Have any of you had to have this operation? I am lucky enought to have been able to have 2 beautiful children so the removal of the anatomy (while sad) is manageable from a mind set perspective. However, I have read numerous scare stories in the Internet that says I will be a sexual mute once I have the op with no ability to be aroused or have any sexual pleasure or release... That would probably put a whole bunch of strain on my marriage and I'm not prepared for that to happen.
My operation is on 27 June 2016 with Andrew Kent - Royal Surrey. I would be really pleased to hear from anyone who has had that operation and can assure me that you don't become just 'numb' from the waist down afterwards. I'm so terrified of this.
Also, if anyone has been operated on my Andrew Kent, would be good to hear from you too. This is my first time going under his knife.
Thanks in advance,
