I’m due to have a full hysterectomy at the end of May, I’m very nervous to say the least. Can anyone give me any tips for getting into shape/preparing before this operation so that I have the best chance of it going smoothly and recovering effectively? Anything I should be doing post op to help also, or any essentials to take into hospital? I know that this is one of the best sources for personal experience, so I’m grateful for any advice. Many thanks in advance.
