  • My mon had that identical thing done a few years ago. It went very well for her and her recovery was, in her doctor's words "textbook". Unfortunately, she still has to go through menopause :) Good luck ,I hope it goes well for you!

  • Best day of my life!!!!! The recoop time was awful for me cause I was so over weight but my sister in law was up and at it the next day but I have to tell you it was all worth it and I would do it all over again in a minute. I had endametreosis and bladder had to be lifted also, so keep your head up you are fixing to feel better than you ever have

  • button, I feel good right now, but I have a cyst in my left ovary, although they tell me it is not a bad cyst, they will remove the ovaries since I do not need it anymore and the uterus although nothing wrong with it will have to be removed in order to lift up the bladder. I am just amazed how they can take all that out through such a small incision!! Thanks for your input!
