I had a hysterectomy in May of last year. I am a 61 year old woman. About 6 months later I experienced pain in my joints. It was so bad that some of my bones cracked when I moved my limbs. I feel stiff when I walk. My skin is so dry that I have to appear lotions and salves daily.
I had the hysterectomy because I had light bleeding and some twenty five or more fibroids. The doctor performed a sonogram on the fibroids because of the bleeding and I received a number of 6 or 7. He had already told me if the number higher than 5 he would do a DNC. The reading from the sonogram came back with a reading of 7. It was then that he suggested a hysterectomy removing the uterus and ovaries.
