So grateful to FeelTheFear and all the other women who've shared their experience. Some really great tips on this thread
I have a date now, 30th December, they rang me yesterday, so the hard bit will be missing toasting in the New Year with a whisky. But at least I'll be entering 2021 cancer free, hopefully.
I also found a good leaflet published by the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists called Recovering Well: information for you after an abdominal hysterectomy. https://www.rcog.org.uk/globalassets/documents/patients/patient-information-leaflets/recovering-well/abdominal-hysterectomy.pdf - if admins read this maybe you could put the hyperlink in so others can click onto it easily?
I've ordered a wedge pillow, and a friend has a V pillow she's lending me, and hubby's sorting out an overbed table and I'm going to order some massive pants and lots of tins of prunes. There is a cushtie cushion in the house somewhere which I'll dig out.
So hopefully some of this will help some others facing a hysterectomy as well, and as for me I'm all set and ready.
Well, I wish I was, I'm terrified. Relieved - the end is in sight, but terrified. It's an absolute roller coaster. Waiting and wondering when it would be was horrible, but knowing it's right after Christmas is also horrible. And the cruel tiny voice deep down saying "what if they find something nasty afterwards?" is horrible too.
