Hi all I have wrote a few blogs on here after what seems like forever (2 years) of heavy periods and lots of pain, mirena coil, lots of pills and appointments. I saw my consultant 2 weeks ago who agreed that a hysterectomy is my best option, I was going to try having the lining taken away but he told me this would solve the bleeding but not the pain. I am 30 with 3 young children and had been sterilised anyway so my family is complete. I have been told that they will leave my ovaries behind. I now have to have 3 zoladex injections while I wait for the op and have been given Livial to help the side affects of the zoladex. Has anyone else had a hyesterectomy at a young age? I am just wondering what to expect and whether it would be key hole surgery. I am also worried about how long my hospital stay will be with having the 3 little ones to look after?
