I. Was given the green light for a full hysterectomy last month by my consultant [edited to comply with our code of conduct] and was wondering how long wait for the op you all had? I'm not coping with the pain very well at the moment and have been off sick since last Thursday and put on tramadol (evil stuff avoid of you can!) and doc is calling me back today to ask for alternative pain relief. I've never been knocked off my feet like this before with it. Yesterday I had pre-booked a safari park visit with my kids so didn't want to let them down that we hired a wheelchair for me to be in-that was a first!
