Welcome to our loving group. I am so glad that you found us. I had a complete hysterectomy November of 1997. At that time I felt that it was my only option to rid myself of pain. Well, I'm still hurting. I do know of some women that had hysterectomies and are doing great years afterwards, but I know of more that aren't better(some even worse) after having it done. Please try all other options before going through with it. Get a second or even a third opinion. Maybe you could see the specialists in PA or Germany to see what they think would be best for you. I wish that I had known about this group before having my done. I've had 5 surgeries for adhesions since then. Please know that we are all here for you and that you will be added to my prayer list. There are a lot of extremely knowledgeable people here that can answer your questions or point you in the correct direction. Again I say welcome to my home away from home, where I find comfort and understanding. - Teresa
