My mother told me last night that she’s in need of a hysterectomy. When I was talking to her last night I realized that although I know what a hysterectomy entails, I don’t know what it does to the body afterwards. Mom’s well into menopause, so that part’s not an issue, but I don’t know what else might change.
Although I’ve been assured that it’s a very low risk procedure I’m still very scared about it. Doper women, have any of you had this operation? Can you tell me any of your experiences? Good or bad- I just want to know about other people’s experiences with this.
