Mosaicmind Posted September 5, 2012 Share Posted September 5, 2012 I just got into see a GYN today since we moved and spent an hour with her. I really like her and she totally understands how frustrated I am. She is more of a "get down to business" gyn and said that after all I have tried there's no sense in putting me through more. I had a failed ablation 2 years ago, can't take bc pills, still having cycles 2 times a month with spotting inbetween, lots of pain, and haven't been able to have s@x in years without pain and bleeding. Essentially, since we are not having anymore kids having a hysterectomy is my desire and much needed. Right now I am scheduled to have a total vaginal hysterectomy on October 15 and should only have to stay in the hospital one night. What can I expect for recovery time? Will I be restricted on activities and how much I can lift? How about driving? I am really anxious to get this done. I almost can't believe that it's finally going to happen. She plans on leaving both of my ovaries in unless she sees a problem. If she can't do it vaginally, she will do it laproscopically and if there are problems it will be the old fashioned way. I am almost giddy about this because I have suffered long enough with this. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
