I hope you are all well and the spring is giving you a nice boost. I am 39 and two weeks pre TAH. It's been a long wait to get here and eventually I have had to go private, as my womb is now at least 16 weeks (no recent scan, just an examination) and my symptoms are shrinking my life. To anyone waiting during COVID, I sympathise!
Overall, after LOADS of therapy and help from practitioners, family, my partner and friends, I am feeling very positive about how my life my look once I've recovered and the spring energy is helping that. However, I am having a big wave of doubt about my decision NOT to keep my cervix. I decided not to keep it a while ago, for pragmatic reasons, at a point when things were rapidly closing up and everything looked very bleak. However, I just wanted to check with any of you who also had it removed, whether things were okay for you sexually afterwards? I think that's my main concern, along with a possible feeling of just not being so strong on the pelvic floors / loosing muscle tone in that area / intensifying the feelings of loss.
I would love to hear your experiences and thank you so much in advance for reading this. It's such a lovely forum and you are all so generous for writing about your experiences. I hope that I will do the same once I'm on the other side.
