I am experiencing breast tenderness and bloating, after having had a partial hysterectomy 5 yrs ago. Is this normal, as it is worse than ever before?

If by partial hysterectomy you mean your ovaries were not removed, it is not unusual to experience the symptoms connected with PMS (i.e., breast tenderness, bloating) since you continue to produce hormones from these ovaries and will do so until you will enter menopause naturally.
