I know a lot of women don't feel that way, but I don't understand why. If you're finished using it, what do you need it for? Is it the emotional thing of having part of your womanhood removed?

After a hysterectomy, you may experience the following hysterectomy side effects:
Hot flashes
Fatigue
Insomnia
Depression
Urinary problems
Weight gain
Headaches
Irritability and anxiety
Heart palpitations
Heart disease
Vaginal dryness
Pain in the joints
Memory lapses
Osteoporosis
Hair loss
Low sex drive and painful sexual intercourse
Dizziness and nervousness


Hey Cloud, hope it isn't that, but even if it is, we'll all mail you chicken soup. And cookies. And cocks.

Good luck, Cloud! It's probably only cysts, don't worry too much.

Usually with hysterectomies these days they leave the ovaries, which means that most of the side effects are moot points because they were related to removing the ovaries.

Today I'm upset because two days ago I tried to extend an olive branch to a friend I had a falling-out with, and he hasn't responded.

Thanks, Sycamore. I'm trying really hard.

You know those people who are always telling you to live in the moment? Well, living in the moment isn't that awesome if the moment SUCKS ASS.

Thanks, Classicman. I've always had a hard time escaping the moment... I've wondered if it's related to having temporal lobe epilepsy, as my memory and sense of elapsed time are really wonky. Who knows, it's probably just me being neurotic.

so the word: gigantic uterous; large ovarian cysts, possibly cancerous (still testing). Need an MRI and CT scan, and . . .

Everything must go! Hysterectomy, oopherectomy, and whatever other ectomies clean out all those organs.

Needless to say, I am a bit upset now.

O fuck! Good luck! I hope it's not cancerous, and that everything goes SMOOTHLY.

Oh Cloud, I'm sorry to hear you're going through this. Maybe it will help to think of it as "operable" rather than "must go?" Better to have it gone, rather than hanging out in your body possibly being cancerous, right?

Sure you are. Keep positive thoughts, because though it sucks, I bet you'll find it's all OK.

Sending warm thoughts your way...

So what? You don't need those goddamn organs taking up your valuable middle. Nothing but fuss and bother for year after year after year. Out with em.

AND, I say -- is somebody afraid of a little body modification? Of course not. If you told somebody you did this by choice, they'd think you were bad-ass.
