I went to the Dr today and we have decided that its best for me to have a total Hysterectomy. I have Endometriosis very badly, i have tried Lupron several times, BC pills, had 2 kids, and nothing helps it. Its just getting worse and its now starting to effect me even working out. I cant even walk a lot with out being in pain. Not to mention sex is no longer much fun because it hurts. So here in a few weeks, i get the call Monday to schedule my surgery, ill get it done. Anyone who has ever had one, what can i expect ?? He is going to try and do it LAP, which i have had 2 other LAP surgery's before. If he needs to then he will have to cut into me to get out all the scar tissue. Supposed to be a 1 night stay in the hospital for a LAP or 2 to 3 nights stay with a incision. How long did it take to recover ?? Pain wise how bad is it ?? Any advice ?? Oh i will be having my ovaries out at the same time. I get chocolate cysts on them a lot so no reason to keep them in and keep having trouble with that.
