I'm having one next month, it'll start as Vaginal but could become abdominal as Uterus is large. Has anyone here had either one? How long were u in hospital? How long was recovery time any side effects? I'm getting slightly stressed.

I'm having my oaries out on Tuesday. I cant wait, but i know i'm going to be a bit scared on the day. Its going to be done laparoscipally so i'm hoping for just a week off work!

I had mine done by laparoscopy. I felt back to normal within a week, though I was told not to do any lifting or housework for six weeks so didn't, I probably could have. I was certainly driving straight away.

It depends on exactly what you are having removed obviously, but I'd recommend it to everyone who can have theirs done like that.
