This is post number 100 for me – very exciting! I have really enjoyed finding some great blogs and resources and being able to share them with you.
A few weeks ago was my one year anniversary of being uterus-free – also very exciting! Although I could have done without the whole emergency aspect of my situation (see my first post for details!), having a hysterectomy was clearly an extremely positive thing for me. I know that statement is unfortunately not true for everyone, as some of the blogs I have shared prove. But for me, life is so much less stressful because of my operation. The last few months leading up to my operation were likely some of my most stressful ever. Since my surgery I no longer have to stress about going out in public for fear of ‘accidents’ and I don’t need to remember to take a little pill each day either. I have a lot more energy (apparently when you lose that much blood week after week, your energy levels drop – who knew?) and I just feel much happier. I was fortunate in having a smooth surgery, no complications, and a quick recovery (being younger (ish!) and healthy going into the surgery apparently increases the likelihood of all of those things). If you are having a hysterectomy soon, I wish the same for you!
