I have found the daily emails really useful and reassuring. Without them I would probably have buried my head in the sand until I had no choice but to acknowledge what was going to happen. The recovery chart was really useful to show family and friends as they seem to think it will be a routine and minor op! Thank you so much for all the little tips.

Real people giving real stories and therefore really useful information about gynaecological issues. All thoughts, information and advice I feel is delivered in a non judgemental, helpful if not loving, way. I see that it gives ladies a place to voice their feelings, in a safe place, where they can feel heard and others can truly feel empathy, not just sympathy. I love what I have seen so far.

The ease of access and the frank honest advice offered by women who have undergone hysterectomy is very helpful. Unfortunately I only found out about the site after my operation a few weeks later. I was diagnosed with cancer of the endometrium and had a TAH with omental biopsy and peritoneal washings. I am now 7 weeks post op. I still have 2 weeks before I am reviewed by the gynaecologist. I am still waiting for the all clear but have a preliminary histology that is good. I cannot fault the care that I have been given by the doctors. However, and understandably from their point, the focus was on the cancer. It would have been really helpful if I had been directed to your site before the operation. My current thoughts are directed to recovery and a return to normality. Many thanks for your support.

Some really useful information that isn't provided by the hospital; also it's real people who have experienced all aspects of the surgery rather than the pap that's provided by the NHS

The information was an absolute Godsend to me. Every day I read the email and read some of the letters sent. The hints and tips and of course other ladies letters explaining how they felt was just what I needed. When you know other ladies have had your aches and pains, it is a relief really that you are not the only one who is suffering different after effects after your op. All I can say is a big thank you.

Gives lots of help - mostly things medical staff don't / won't tell you. Wish I'd found it sooner. Able to tell other people about it.

The regular emails from Linda, these were both informative and comforting, with reminder on the weekly progress sheet. The opportunity to post question on forum was very helpful and getting a response was reassuring andhelpful

I am truly going to miss your emails and feel rather emotional about it as just by receiving them it made me think 'someone does care about me'. My experience has been the worst possible and not yet had op which is scheduled forcthe 12/08. No support from partner who is stating I will be fit for work after 3 weeks, Consultant experience is ongoing as no discussion as to any alternative treatments and GP has been little more than useless in helping me with my anxiety/stress/worries as hysterectomy came as a total shock. Still unable to make a decision regarding op as no-one helping to answer my questions,

The information given was tremendously helpful, especially about the time of recovery. Iweb am 72 with a heart condition and it was so reassuring that the tiredness I am still experiencing is nothing unusual. I have spoken to a couple of women locally who have had the same operation, and we have said how lucky that our hospital RUH at Bath is so good. I would recommend the site to anyone, and I have been so pleased to have found it. It should be compelling reading for all. I did notice that on the notice board in the ward was a copy of your site with a recommendation for women to read it. Well done and keep the good work up.

Knowing that I am not alone. Advice on what to take into hospital and what products people use at home to help after op. It has given me chance to get more organised.

It is a simple site and I guess most of us appreciate that. It is written in an informal style; extremely relevant information is meted out in chunks, not too much at a time.

It is so incredibly validating reading about other women's experiences and realising you're not alone. Your emails have also made me realise that even though at times I feel like I'm not doing well ... Actually I am on track with recovery. I can't begin to thank you enough!

It has been an invaluable resource for me, with a huge amount of practical useful information, and all easily accessible.

I had my hysterectomy 8 weeks ago, and had complications 2 weeks later with another emergency operation. Being able to find some answers from people who had similar situations made me less anxious and stressed, and knowing that everything I had been going through or experiencing was 'normal' and what I could expect in the weeks following my hysterectomy.
