Im 25 years old and got told in April that I have to have a hysterectomy. He said it will happen in 3 to 4 months. Im terrified. I have had issues with surgery in the past. My tubal ligation went horrible. I had several blood clots, had to be restitched as the cloths burst through the stitches, had to be on bed rest for 2 weeks and for a normal woman she would be back to her regular activities within 2 days of that particular surgery. Now this is also going to laperscopic I know i spelt that wrong sorry. Using the same entry points and I was told 2 to 3 weeks off work and 1-3 months before healed. I have a 6 yr old daughter and 4.5 yr old son to care for. It stresses me out. With the problems that I have now, and other off the topics I have with my partner I am affraid in a way that he may see me as less of a woman after. He says not but as it is he already has some "sexual" issues. My emotions are high, stress is high, anxiety is high. I feel very alone. My periods are not normal, my hormones have gone all wacky since my son was born and now I am already experiencing hot and cold flashes, mood swings, very even for me off periods. My doctor says it's kind of like menopause but not yet. Has anyone else experienced this or is going through it currently?
