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.

Not quite to plan, wound infection after hysterectomy – Elizabeth’s story

I am 66 and underwent a laparoscopically assisted vaginal hysterectomy (ovaries also removed) and extended vaginal cuff procedure due to VAIN and several dodgy smear results which colposcopy didn’t sort out. All did not quite go according to plan as I ended up with a wound infection and I hope my story will help anyone who feels unfit to leave hospital have the strength to argue their case better than I did. I feel that being discharged too early on 2 occasions caused my problems to be worse than they could have been and therefore made my recovery time longer.

Hysterectomy, it’s not all bad .. honest! – Sarah’s Story

I was told I needed a hysterectomy 2 years ago but I felt scared and concerned about how I would cope being a single mum – also how it would affect me as a woman, so instead I opted, against my consultants wishes for an ablation.  As he predicted, things did not improve and after much procrastination on my part, I was booked in for a vaginal hysterectomy and repair on the Tuesday 18th of March.

New lease of life after awful bleeding – Angela’s Story

I have had a year if awful bleeding, clots the size of my hand etc. in May last year I had a scan which showed I had quite large fibroids and an enlarged womb the decision was made to have a hysterectomy after I had 3 months on the injection to put me in temporary menopause to try to reduce fibroids to make surgery easier (which didn’t work they didn’t shrink and I even had a couple more little one appear!).
