I've moved your post into the associated and other health problems bit of the forum kimmi, as you should get more responses here.

I've not had a hysterectomy, so I'm afraid I don't know how it could go with regards to FM :dunno: :dunno: Hopefully there'll be someone along soon who can give you some advice :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed:

Hi. I had a hysterectomy but it was nearly 20 yrs ago. As I was very young (21) I think I was much more able to deal with the pain and recover quickly even tho I had the operation via my tum along an old ceasarian scar. A friend of mine had one done via going in 'internally' and said there wasn't too much pain altho she doesn't have FM. She said the only thing she had to remember was that altho she'd just had a major operation - because she had no incision she had to keep reminding herself that she must take care recovering and not dismiss it as minor. Sadly I have no 'update' info for you, but I do have a small bit of advice - DON'T go round using the kettle, a teacup (you may laugh!) or the hoover or drive before you're meant to as it really will be sore then! Just rest and enjoy the rest if you can. :fingerscrossed: for you and thinking of you and loadsa gentle :hugs: to you. All the best Cherry :blowkiss:

hi :wave:
i had mine done about 20 years ago before FM but it was the best thing for me
no more monthly misery or in my case 3 weekly misery and one week off :roll: :roll:

i can recall one of our Lady's having it done with having FM and she went through
it all ok
it is on here somewhere :yikes:

the way i see it is, your in pain anyway so it will sort one trouble out
and you will fight back to being better ( ish ) if you no what i mean :facepalm:

but its your decision :fingerscrossed: for you :wave: :wave:

Hi
My op was also done pre fibro but when i was last in hospital 2 ladies had just had a hysterectomy and they were up walking the next day and went home on day 3 its so different form when i had mine done in 97, i had drainage tubes and was in for a week they had none of that, its all done differently now.

I had a bowel & bladder prolapse op while having fibro and was told that it will prob take me longer to recover because of the fibro but i recoverd really well so :fingerscrossed: you will be fine. :hugs: :goodluck1:

I possible having a hysterectomy soon hopefully, no been dx with fibro as doctor wants to wait till other problems are sorted first.

I recently found out I have a fibroid that fills my womb so in loads of pain :( went in for a micro ablasion but it could not be done due to fibroid gutted :'(

Good luck with yours let us know how you get on xxx

hysterectomy

Postby Niki d » Fri Jun 17, 2011 2:09 pm

Hi
I have had a hysterectomy, I already had fibro for 3 years but I was spending 3 out of every 4 weeks in bed, I would just start to feel better then it would start all over again.

When I had mine done I was cut all the way across and they took my overies as well as they thought they might cause problems later.

My Dr was really good and when I woke up I had pillows propped over ware to try to ease my pain with my back hips and knees. I also had a drain and was in I think for 5 days.

It made such a difference to my life, although my fibro and PA are much worse now I dread to think how I would have coped if I hadn't had the op. My mum had hers done the other way she wasn't cut and she was out a day and a half later.

Hope that helps you. Gentle hugs niki 

i had mine done the other way
internal no cut, was in for 5 days but that was a long time ago.
they left my ovaries in and i had ovarian cysts on them, the one was so large
it weighed a stone that was 5 years ago :yikes:

so it is better if they take the ovaries as well, IMO :wave:

I had mine in 2003 I was 37 pre Fibro or pre diagnosed fibro mine was the same as Mary's and I've never looked back, I'm on HRT for the hot flushes as they did get a bit unbearable but other than that no problems at all and unless you look closely you cant see the scar after years of endometriosis etc it was such a relief xx

Been to see my consultant today she has started me on injections to stop my periods and pain.
If they work that means I will have to have a radical hysterectomy ie everything.
So I'm hoping they'll work I have to have one every month for 3 month then go back on the 12 October so its more waiting to see what happens :(
