I'm 48 and had my operation at the end of January. At my 8 week check up I told the consultant I was ready to have it all taken away as I was still getting sharp pains. Roll on 7 months and I have been signed off by the consultant. I do still have a period but it is that light I don't have to use any sanitary products and gone after 24 hours. I would recommend giving it a go if suggested to you.
