There are several facters that will change the answers a lot. "total' refers to taking the ovaries too. If they don't put you on HRT (hormone replacement therapy) you will be thrown immediately into menopause. I can tell you it is no picnic. Hot flashes, nightsweats, moodswings from hell...kinda like being pregnant x10..but y9ou don't get to be done with it in 9 months. Another thing that will make a big difference is how they do the surgery. If they go in abdominally it takes longer to heal and be pain free. If they can do it vaginally the recovery time is reatly reduced.
