I had mine done August 2003 after spending month after month housebound for 4-5 days because of pain and flow. My Gyn, husband and I discussed many different options to help with my flow and pain. But after 3 months of testing and reading and talking I decided on a Partial Hysterectomy (I still have my Ovaries) and everyone supported my decision. Afterwards my Gyn told me that I had Adenomyosis and that because of that I could never get pregnant again and the partial hysterectomy was my only cure. I did not have any complications afterward and healed up pretty fast. I have very minor to no irritability each month but no cramps and no flow, worked out perfect for me and my husband.

I had my uterus and cervix removed in 2001 because I had fibroids. My experience before was sheer misery. I was slowly bleeding to death and severely anemic. My surgery went well and I was discharged from the hospital in 3 days instead of the usual 5. I followed my doctors recovery instructions to the letter and never looked back. I'm going through menopause now but other than that I feel good.
