I've been browsing on a hysterectomy forum and read about someone who kept their cervix because they were worried about a prolapse, now I know that it's a little different for me so I went for the whole caboodle, although the surgeon was happy for me to decide, at that point I was scared by then about cancer spreading and cells settling in anything left behind. Maybe a knee jerk reaction, who knows. It hasn't affected my sex life as I thought it might despite my nervousness about stitches etc but now 9 weeks post op everything seems to be getting back to normal. It may sound silly as I can hardly put it back but now I'm worried. Then I read a post about someone saying they are 48, so 2 years older than me and are going to age quicker post hysterectomy. Is that true?
Although I have an itchy scar I am using E45 which has helped and the lumpy line has started to go, I suffer a little with hot nights, but even that has settled down, but when I look in the mirror I see I look a little grey around the edges, face not hair, and my belly feels fat and saggy I want my ooph back instead of being lazy and not exercising because I'm worried I'll be shattered, or my scar will stretch.
Hopefully once chemo starts I'll start to get back on my feet, I took flowers to the cemetery for my son for Christmas today and I guess it has made me a little sad, Christmas is tough without him.
