I had a hysterectomy a handful of years ago due to a huge (19 cm) fibroid and bleeding issues associated with it. The hysterectomy (which had to be an abdominal surgery since the fibroid grew so large, so quickly) was the best thing I've ever done. I feel so much better now, don't need to deal with birth control, no anemia, no pain, no pressure. My sex life is better than ever. You have suffered long enough. What date is your surgery?
I hope you will keep us updated. Unfortunately on boards like this (medical forums), usually women who have had a bad experience will share their story. I want you to know it was a wonderful decision for me, and not one I took lightly. I kept one ovary.
