  • I had a hemorrhaging problem that would not stop! I hemorrhaged for nearly 3 mos! I was severely anemic, lethargic and tired of waking up in a pool of blood. I was afraid I might not wake up at all. I finally decided I was sick of all the pills they were giving me try to stop bleeding and walked into my ob/gyn's office and demanded a complete hysterectomy. He didn't want to do it b/c I was 29 but I told him I was not leaving until I had a surgery date. It is by far the best thing I ever did! GL

  • I had a partial hysterectomy when I was 37--still have uterus. I had developed 2 large dermoid cysts on each ovary. One of the cysts twisted on itself causing sharp pain like acute appendicitis (which is what I thought it was when I was rushed to the ER). Since the larger one HAD to be removed, I elected to have the smaller cyst removed at the same time--resulting in menopause!

    I've been on HRT (estrogen) meds since, and no other problems. I had NO IDEA there was a cyst as large as a tennis ball--no outward telltale signs, no pain, no discharge/bleeding. The surgery was no different than a tubal ligation--2 small incisions, 2 days of prescription meds, and I was fine.

    It's possible if your STOMACH is hurting, you have an ulcer--possibly perforated.

  • I had a hysterectomy because I had fibroids.  I was passing clots that looked like chunks of liver and I wouldn't stop bleeding which at times was extremely heavy.
