Don’t be scared of hysterectomy if you are really suffering – Jigna’s story

I am 36 years old now and I was diagnosed with 2nd degree uterine prolapse 2.5 yrs ago. The Dr suggested I try pelvic floor exercise to make my muscles strong to avoid surgery at very young age. (I had 2 kids with vaginal delivery), so I learned pelvic floor exercise from pelvic floor physiotherapist and tried for almost 10 months but didn’t get any improvement in the prolapse. It might have been because my tissues were damaged while delivering a baby.

She agreed with me that my uterus had prolapsed, that I needed to see her for confirmation at what degree my uterus had prolapsed and suggested that I lie down and push it back in. I did so and spent the rest of the evening lying in my bed.

My hysterectomy resurrection story – Kerry’s story

I’m writing this for all the women out there who are facing the prospect of a hysterectomy because this is my hysterectomy resurrection story. Maybe you feel scared of the unknown. Maybe you’ve read some crazy horror stories about the procedure. Maybe (like it was with me) it’s your first ever operation and you’re absolutely petrified. I’m writing this for anyone who has any fears at all because I want to tell you all that it will be ok and will much more than likely not be as bad as you think.
