hey I had a lap back in October and it looks like the endo has returned so I’m booked in for a total hysterectomy! I’m really scared about it all. How are you after yours? Has it changed you at all?
I’ve already started hrt and get on really well with the oestrogel especially with less adhd symptoms.
Any insight would help if feeling quite scared about it atm. Thank you in advance.
Hi, am 7 weeks into recovery from mine. It's been weird as externally there isn't anything to show that you have had major surgery (everyone tells you it is!) But really knocked me off my feet. I think the hardest bit was the having to stop HRT in prep for the operation and then waiting 4 weeks before I could restart it (also had to change what I was on) which those weeks I struggled with hot flushes/muscle weakness etc but now it's starting to settle feel better. Still have days that are hard but trying to not put pressure on myself.I would say make sure to take it easy and have a good support network for the first couple of weeks to help with general day to day things.
thank you this is super helpful and I’m sorry to read you had to go through that too 😢. I started Oestrogel and get on with it pretty well so I’m hoping I’ll be ok 🥴. My husbands fab so I’ll get him to book some time off work xx
