I had a hysterectomy 8 years ago (still have my ovaries). Sometimes within two years of surgery when the ovaries are left intact they will start to shut down leading to premature menopause. This did not happen to me. I started menopause about 2 years ago.
Honestly my surgery was one the best things that ever happened to me. First of all, not having a period anymore is wonderful. Secondly, my health and general well being improved immensely.

Menopause is a crap shoot. Some women have a terrible time while others don't. I have problems with temperature control. I'm either too hot or too cold. I have to keep a towel by the bed because I wake up soaking wet. I don't have any problems with my moods though.
I'm a firm believer in a positive mental attitude. If you think this is going to be terrible then I believe it will be but if you concentrate on the positive aspects then you will be just fine.
