Just wanted to write back, I had my Hysterectomy done in December
was very affraid of the side effects etc. Let me tell you the best decision I ever made, Did not have the ovaries taken out, but I did have fibroids and pre cancerous cells, I had a double Mastectamy 3 yrs ago and thought this was the best way to go, I also suffered for 10 yrs with anxioty WOW what a differents just doing this simple surgery made.
The heavy bleeding is gone the pain & blotting is gone the anxioty is gone. I defenitly recommend it....

Anon_126129--thank you for the update!

I am so glad this turned out to be the right decision for you and you're feeling so much better. I'm sure it was concerning for you with your history of breast cancer and them finding pre-cancerous cells.

It's always nice to hear good outcomes.

Thanks for sharing,
