Many women will tell you that having a hysterectomy is the worse thing
you can do, but I do not feel that way. I had my hysterectomy in 94. I
had heavy periods and could not be gone from home for more than an hour,
even with a super tampon and xtra big pad. I had large clots and not
only did I have adhesion pain but the pain was worse with my period. It
seemed to take a long time to get over the surgical pain and to feel
like myself again, but it was worth it. If your surgeon will use a
barrier, it will help with reformation or new adhesions. I also
suffered from PMS and it certainly helped with that.
No one should tell you to have or not to have surgery. That has to be
your own choice. But you should be well informed before making that
