You have stumbled across a blog that will be dedicated to all things hysterectomy! Why would I create such a blog you may ask? After dealing with troublesome periods for several years, everything came to a head recently, requiring me to receive emergency hysterectomy surgery. I tend to be someone who would have researched this topic thoroughly before ending up on the surgeon’s table. However, due to the circumstances that was not a possibility. So now I was uterus-less and wanting to find out more information about the process I just underwent.
Simple, I will search the trusty internet and find answers to all of my questions! However, I soon realized that the information I wanted to discover, was not easily found online. Given that hysterectomies are the second most common surgery in the United States, I found this odd. I did find numerous sites that spoke of hysterectomies but nothing that went as in-depth (without being overly technical) as I was searching for. So, that’s how I ended up here, writing a blog about hysterectomies.
Now I want to be clear. I am in no way a doctor, nurse, medical professional or even a med student. None of what you read in this blog should be considered medical advice. Please consult your physician regarding any questions you may have. This is simply a blog where I hope to share stories of women’s experiences with hysterectomy and possibly shed some light on this topic. Please spend some time looking around and I would love to hear from you!
