LOL Please send lots of good vibes, (flowers, chocolates and gifts would be appreciated too)
I had a tumorectomy ONE year and then the smaller tumors came back so next year I had to have a hysterectomy. I had my uterous and cervix removed. I had such monthly pain it was like someone was sticking a double bladed knife up me. NOTHING helped!
After the hysterectomy I was up and dancing around the room within days. It hurt a bit - like sore muscles - but not bad at all.
I had this done over 20 years ago and I am willing to bet it will be a LOT easier nowdays!
