Jean, How many surgeries have you had? I had a TAH in January. I now know it was unnecessary. I have more pain, and a lot of bowel problems. Constipation and constant pain. Dr. Redan felt he couldn't help me right now. I get so afraid of bowel obstructions, because I've heard how bad they are, as well as the treatment. Millie
