Hello! I have read your original post and all of the replies and I'm so sorry you've gone through all of this. I can also assure you that you are not alone. I know that won't solve things for you per se, but I know many women who have had issues post-hysterectomy. For example, one of my girlfriends told me that her first doctor had the "we might as well while we're in there" attitude with her parts, as in "we might as well take your ovaries while we're at it," and "we might as well take your cervix while we're at it." She had a bad vibe from this dude and ended up going to another doctor who she liked much better and who agreed that not everything had to come out. This is sort of off topic but it kind of goes with the whole "nudge nudge wink wink" that your doctor was doing to your hubby...it has always bothered me that the word "hysterectomy" and thus "uterus" comes from the word "hysterical". I don't like that at all. It seems insulting doesn't it? I think we need to change some of the terms that we use for surgery on the ol' male parts...any ideas?

SeeDaddy1, I think you've found a good home here at EmpowHer. I hope you post again too. Nancy Drew Fan
