Dear: Hysterectomy Bound Friend
Whether you are about to have hysterectomy or presently recovering from hysterectomy, I am sure there are questions that you are seeking answers for. Questions like:
…and many others!
I’ve been through the hysterectomy process unfortunately twice so I know what you’re dealing with!
My name is Mercy Andres. Prior to the total abdominal hysterectomy I had, I had also been through two surgical procedures directly related to it. Unfortunately, my experience from the two earlier operations was not good but as a result of that, I learned ways that enabled me to go through the third operation smoothly and in record time. It could be very daunting and stressful to undergo any type of hysterectomy but it should not be if you have good knowledge and understanding of the procedure and the challenges arising from it.
Through my experience I had been of help to friends and acquaintances who went through the same operation. It definitely helped them and I knew that I had to share the simple approach I discovered with others who could benefit.
After talking to women who had hysterectomy, I discovered that they have horrendous experiences after the operation-some battled with complications that can easily be avoided. I also witnessed how hard my co-patients in the hospital struggled after their surgery. It is then my intention to help others who can benefit from what I have been able to accomplish so that they have options with them going through the process.
Believe me, I know how scary it is to hear from your doctor that the ultimate solution to your pain is a hysterectomy…
…if you are just like me, the first thing that bothered you is the risk involved.
Worry or fear is the natural response especially if you have little understanding of what you are to go through. I came across distressing information that you too might have come across when you try to do your own research i.e. in the Internet, in your local library or even from a terrible experience your friend or relative had.
I believe part of being scared is in not knowing what to expect at all.
I am here to offer help based on my experience and research saving you a time doing your own investigation. If you are decided and set to undergo hysterectomy then you have come to the right site, a one-stop place to find answers to many of your questions. It is my sincere hope that after reading what I am about to share with you, you will be at peace, as you yourself will undergo the process that I have been through.
Most women about to go through a hysterectomy are unprepared because they are left in the dark. They don’t even know what questions to ask their doctor.
Some are not advised of the possible risks, complications and side effects involved in the process.
Most women don’t realize that Poor Health can actually delay recovery by months but unfortunately doctors rarely mention this and can even result in the surgery being cancelled if you are unwell!
Because of lack of advice, most women do not have a plan on what to do before and after the operation and during their stay at the hospital. This results in unnecessary stress that delays their recovery.
Many women are uninformed on the step-by-step procedure of their operation. This causes anxiety that impedes their recovery.
With planning out recovery time after surgery, most women will either plan too little or too much time, either way it will cause them unneeded stress.
Weight gain can be a common side effect of hysterectomy which can cause undue stress mentally as well as physically but many women do not have a plan to tackle this.
To some women, going through hysterectomy puts a strain in their relationship with their spouses, as they don’t know how long after the operation that sex is allowed or if they can still have orgasm.
Unfortunately, depression is a common side effect of hysterectomy but many women are not aware of this and so they do not take steps to avoid the chance of this happening to them.
Stop worrying! In the “Recovering From Hysterectomy E-book” you will be empowered, confident and feel in control as you will be armed with true experienced knowledge!
Here’s an overview of what’s going to be covered:
Risks, complications and side effects resulting from undergoing hysterectomy.
As with any other kind of operation, there are risks involved when you undergo hysterectomy but technology has now advanced so the risks and complications are minimal. Possible risks are bleeding, infection, damage to surrounding tissues and organs and blood clots. The side effect of anesthesia too is very unpleasant and it is worth knowing the remedy of each challenge before they happen.
Know the step-by-step process on what you will go through- from the pre surgical examination up until you regain “consciousness”.
Pre Surgical Examination
The pre-surgical visit is generally scheduled within the week before surgery. During this time you will be examined and your medical history is reviewed. Certain tests need to be done at this stage to determine your fitness for the operation.
You should have received instructions during your pre-surgical visit on what to do and not to do before your operati that you adhere to these instructions for your own safety and to avoid your operation being cancelled.on. It’s crucial.
Pre Operative Preparation
The steps vary but generally this is a guide for you on what to expect once you checked-in into the hospital then to the operating theatre. Being aware of the step-by-step process eliminates anxiety on your part and makes you more comfortable as you go through each of the process.
After The Operation
Again, this is a guide for you and your family/carer as to what happens immediately after the operation. If this is the first time for you to undergo an operation, I urge you to know what to expect once you wake up for the first time after the operation. You will be feeling a lot of discomfort and pain as the anesthesia wears out and you don’t know where the pain is coming from–on your wound, throat, etc. but do not be alarmed. Being aware of the challenges now is half the battle in overcoming them.
Your health and fitness before the operation affect your recovery. Give this a priority if you want to be up and running in weeks rather than months.
I can’t stress enough the importance of looking into the state of your health at least three weeks before your operation. I have witnessed women whose appointments were cancelled on the day of operation simply because they had cough or colds two weeks prior. Sadly, through my experiences, doctors do not stress this pre-caution. Be physically and mentally fit-boost your immune system. Easily said but how? Learn of my simple approach.
How long will you be away from work or how long can you be able to do exercise after hysterectomy?
There are several factors that affect your recovery time which determines how long you will be away from work or can do exercise. Factors like what kind of work do you do or how much time do you spend traveling to work, what type of hysterectomy was performed on you? Each individual is different.
Keep your weight gain after hysterectomy to a minimum by knowing how much and what types of food to be eating. Learn other factors that may contribute to your weight gain.
It’s not just knowing how much to eat that helps
weight gain to a minimum but knowing the right type of food to eat as
well and even when and how often to eat.
Learn also how keeping stress to a minimum and getting enough sleep are simple steps to avoid that dreaded weight gain after hysterectomy. Disciplining yourself on what to do and not to do help you keep in shape and by the way, do not be resigned to the common myth that hysterectomy causes weight gain.
Some women suffer from depression after hysterectomy so the best way to tackle this is to be aware that it can happen. Be aware of the symptoms!
Mental preparation before your operation is a good start to avoid depression after hysterectomy. Is it settled in your mind that hysterectomy is the best solution to your problem? Believe that it is so and as difficult as it may be, embrace what’s happening and focus on the end result.
I also discovered that eating proper diet and taking a good food supplement help combat depression.
Can women enjoy sex after a hysterectomy? When is sex allowed and can you still have orgasm after the operation?
This is a very common concern for women who are about to have hysterectomy. Not understanding what would really happen is enough to put a strain in a couple’s relationship.
In general, there should have no effect on your sex life after hysterectomy but depending on the type of hysterectomy one had, some may experience pain during intercourse. Others’ discomfort may also arise because of menopause caused by their operation. Find out some steps on how to sail through the challenges of menopause.
