Hi everyone.....Just wanted to let you all know I'm having a TAH/BSO on Feb. 11th. Thanx to the folks who recommended the HysterSisters site, it really helped me decide on the hyst rather than have the uterine ablation and possibly end up with a hyst after all. Now maybe I can get my life back.....This is probably the celestial wake-up call I needed to focus on my health and re-evaluate my life and priorities, which is what I've needed to do for years but never took the time to do until I lost my job in Dec. (Guess I'll have plenty of it now, what with a four-week wait and a 6-8 week recovery period.) It's taken a few weeks to clear the cobwebs out of my brain so I could even make decisions...that, and a big boost in my Paxil dosage. Now all I've gotta do is figure out what I want to be when I grow up!
