Thanks for the info and the story, Audrey!

I learn so much more from women on the web than I ever learn or learned from Mom, Grandmoms, aunts, and sister. At 47, I still don't know if not much was wrong, or they just didn't say.

I appreciate hearing your story!

Back in the early 90s I did the hysterectomy as there weren't any better solutions at the time. The best part was that I took a whole six weeks off from work! I could not recall ever having such a long time off. A week after the surgery we drove to Florida, me spending a lot of time sleeping in the car. I then relaxed at my inlaws for a few weeks, laying in the sun, reading novels.

It was a great time. Too bad surgery was required.

Take care Audrey.

No more lawyer stuff, no more political stuff, so no more CYA

Hey thanks for all the well wishes folks!

I'm dealing with some hip pain - an irritated nerve I think, but it might take a while to get back to my pre-procedure activity level. I can't walk that far yet. Cycling is easier.

Otherwise, the abdominal area seems all recovered. We will see in 6 months how much the fibroids have shrunk.
