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.
I liked Hysterectomy Associations emails and the book I purchased very useful full of information! I will be having an hysterectomy soon I have been very stressed and I also have bipolar after reading and I was looking forward getting emails every day it has helped me and I now understand a lot me. Thank you so much!
Your emails have been just what I have needed these last two weeks, You have answered all the questions that were on my mind. I am going into hospital tomorrow for a total hysterectomy, Because of your supporting emails I am going in with confidence, (Ok I lied I am a bit scared)
The emails have been amazing and I am going home today. I have told the gynae team all about the fantastic advice. Thank you so much
U guys cover everything that I wanted to now before and after. I am going for my opp soon. But a feel 100% ready for it after reading everything u guys covered .
Loads of really useful tips and advice. Has answered a lot of questions. I would recommend everyone uses this site. Thank you
I liked getting the messages and support made me feel not so alone. I am 4 weeks post op. I wish I'd looked you up pre- op at the start. You reminded me to take it easy and let people know. I liked the stuff about not being brave otherwise people think you can do more than you can. You often echoed what I was thinking about feeling guilty and reminded me that the time can be enjoyable too, as a full time working mum of 2 I've made the most of it. Plus finally my teenage son knows how to do a wash and hoover properly!! This will continue long after I'm fully recovered. Thanks
The advice and tips really got me through. It helped me to see what was reassuringly all part of the routine eexperience I was particularly grateful for the recovery table, which really helped me to be gentle with myself and I am convinced that its impact was to aid my complete recovery.
I liked the e -mails with short messages throughout the first two weeks. Although I have not had my surgery yet I have found your website to be very informative and helped with my research and helped me to make my decision to go ahead in the near future.
I can't tell you how much I appreciate your prompt reply. Your advice and the info from the website have helped me to crystallise my situation and bring clarity to my decision. I am immensely grateful.
The information in the booklet was extremely helpful as I had an emergency hysterectomy and had no time to source facts or information. The daily hints and tips were appreciated during my recovery
It answered lots of questions I had been thinking about .
The site has helped me a great deal, it has answered questions when I have felt relatively alone. In terms of returning home from hospital although I have recovered very well I felt the NHS just left me to get on. My mother had the same surgery about 30 years ago I remember her going off to the seaside for 6 weeks for her to recover and I understood very little else. The only contact I have with any one who has had a hysterectomy in recent years was my sister who passed away just prior to my surgery, so if you can imagine dealing with grief and the loss of my main emotional and practical support, coming across the Hysterectomy Association has been a God send.
I found the information very useful. It has helped me out quite a bit.
Firstly, I would like to congratulate you upon an excellent site which helps give encouragement to women when we are going through a difficult, confused, uninformed, and time in our lives. I would like to say that I found the weekly emails hugely beneficial as they acknowledged the point you were at after the operation and suggested where to read more on that subject on the site. (My very special one was to see the recovery time as a 'gift' and I've tried to use the time wisely and not overdo it. )_x000D_Your emails and web site also helped me to feel not so alone and realise there are women who have faced, are facing and will have to face this situation at some point in their lives.
I like the amount of information on the recovery period and what I can do and how much I can do in the time post operation. The personal accounts for other people have been experiencing and realising my own experiences at the same times are very similar. I was very pleased to receive the emails daily and found them very helpful and useful.
Hello Linda, Strange to say this but I have really enjoyed receiving your emails because they have hit the right note at the times that i have needed the answers, I have ordered myself some sloggi pants as suggested and really did not have any guidance from anyone apart from your organisation. I am now three weeks after operation and going stir crazy but at least understanding more about what I have undergone and how long it will take me to recover. A really big thanks from me. Much appreciated. Vickie
I appreciated the regular emails which were reassuring and informative. I found the website helpful as were the comments made by women who had experienced a hysterectomy.
I really can't thank you enough for all of the valuable info and tips!! It helped me get through to 2 weeks post op and doing great!! Thank you!!
Loved all the relevant information that the doctors, nurses, surgeon don't tell you about can be found here.
