... what happened to your PMT symptoms after the op?
Just curious. Will be having a hysterectomy (uterus, tubes and cervix removed, bladder lift and enterocoele repair - yes I am a proper mess in there) some time this year (I hope) and my really very lovely surgeon said I would still have breast tenderness and bloating if I have it now (some months yes, some months no) but in his opinion experience, most PMT symptoms are emotional what he actually said was 'in your head, no offence" - thanks for that so they should improve.
I haven't posted on the prolapse thread, or at least, only once, to pop in, so to speak. I think I suffered a bit from information overload. That, and the differences in procedures here (Canada) and the UK. So I haven't been back. I might, though.
No surgical date yet - most likely towards the end of the year.
When I thought it was looking like I was heading for a hysterectomy, I checked it out and it looks really good. It's also US based, so might be more relevant for you in terms of actual procedures and the likely process of being in hospital.
I have had a sub total hysterectomy and still get my PMT symptoms. I have been back on Zolodex for the last 6 months to confirm whether the problems are hormone driven. I am due to go back to my consultant next month to decide whether to have my ovaries removed too.
I did get quite a while after the op before the symptoms were back to an unbearable level though.
Thanks Kurri - you PMd me your story last year (or was it this year - its all a bit of a blur) and I remember and was so grateful that you shared your experience with me. Ok. From what I can see, consensus leans towards less or no PMT. EXCELLENT.
