?'s For those who've had a hysterectomy... - Edit 10/6
I got a few questions for those who have had hysterectomies.
I am looking to get a hysterectomy for a few reasons. I would like to hear about your experience.
Did they put you completely under or just local anesthetic?
How long were you out, or how long did the anesthetic last?
How was the pain when you first came out of it?
How was the pain in the following days/weeks?
How was recovery?
How long did recovery take?
Heavy lifting, yes or no?
Anything else you can think to add that you feel is important?
Please & Thank you :)
So I saw the doctor, who basically did nothing but listen to me and then turn around and tell me that to control painful periods and heavy bleeding to take a form of birth control even though I said I've taken birth control before and not only did it not stop the periods when I tried to take it every day of the month (birth control actually made me irregular, I spotted for a month straight and bled multiple times a month)... but it also causes weight gain, which I don't need right now and makes me feel like I am bat shit crazy. Then they handed me vitamins to take and wrote me a prescription because I had too much good bacteria in my system and told me if I decided I wanted birth control to come back. WTF?
So far this year I've seen 4 different doctors.
One swore up and down I had cysts/polyps on my ovaries, an U/S tech of 20+ years said they were eggs and a blood test showed (according to the doctor) that I didn't have cysts/polyps and tried to get me to go on birth control.
The next one wasn't an OBGYN but told me to try and find one that would help me.
The next one ran blood tests up the ass for diabetes, thyroid, metabolism, etc... which I have heard nothing on.
And now this last one doesn't even wanna talk about other treatments other than going on hormones which I know drives me utterly insane. As if PMS'ing 3 weeks out of the month is not enough time spent being crazy and bitchy, we gotta go for the full 4 weeks a month.
I feel like just breaking down and crying my eyes out.
