My Hysterectomy Update - One Year Later!!

Оценок: 668 | Просмотров: 34550
Here is an update of my hysterectomy one year later. Let me know if you have any questions. I had surgery to have my uterus removed in February 2014. It was a good decision for me. Watch this video to hear the reasons why: https://youtu.be/XMm1AOf9BWI About my procedure: I stayed in the hospital 24 hours. Recovery time was actually 3 weeks but I took 5 weeks. I had laparoscopic surgery. My scars are about 1/3 the size of my pinky finger nail. I still have my ovaries but my uterus and cervix are gone. If you guys want me to do a FAQ video just let me know.

Hello Doll!! What was your sex life afterwards? I'm just having my uterus removed nothing else. So I have a major concern about that because I hear so much! I was trying to find videos of men sharing if it feels different to them. Maybe you can share your husbands honest opinions. I'm just kinda worried about that as well although my main concern is me being healthy again! Thanks for what you can share 😉
Simply Tamika (13 дней назад)
My insides feel the same. I can’t tell a difference and neither can he. The sex life has gotten way better because I don’t experience pain anymore.

Thank you so much for this video! I’m three days post hysterectomy, and it’s great to see what my future can look like. I’m so happy for you!

Thank you for sharing your testimony to empower others who may be going through this. I too share my journey to coach women through the prep and healing/recovering process as well on my channel. I carried a massive fibroid that gave me the appearance of a 9-month pregnant woman!

Some ppl say that you will have rib collapse and your hips will widen I just believe that sounds like garbage. I had TAH last week and I have lost 15lbs , I feel great and my swelling is very minimal. I am 46 about to be 47 and had two csections prior. I think it is all in attitude and Gods will.

Thank you so much for your video. I've prolonged this surgery for some time now, mostly to see if I went into menopause and wait to see if fibroids would shrink due to estrogen levels dropping. I'm 53 and no menopause yet. I just can't wait any more. I've got a 20 week pregnancy size uterus packed with fibroids, which 3 are pretty good size. I've gained weight, but I seriously look pregnant and wonder if some of that is the large uterus. I'm very symptomatic.. Cycles aren't long, but at least 2-3 days of constant bleeding and have low iron. I'm constantly in the bathroom day and night having to go. My bladder is prolapsed, as well as my large uterus, so I'm getting monthly bladder infections as well. At times I have a bad back ache, swelling of my feet and legs, as well as regular cramping in my legs. The only other procedure I was a candiate for was UAE, but because they cannot predict what results you will get and that the fibroids can grow back, I decided to pass on that. Plus, I'm not wanting to be on antibiotics every month for infections anymore. All of this has greatly affected my quality of life. Just having the constant urge to go to the bathroom keeps me from going places and doing things. It has affected my work as well.. This last cycle was just awful and I told myself I'm done. So I'm waiting for the call as to when my surgery will be. My Dr. will be taking just my uterus and leaving cervix and ovaries. But I'm just terrified of something happening and I feel worse after the surgery. I've read and watched a lot of stories and videos of how people said what a horrible experience they had and now they have more things they are dealing with. This terrifies me. But I know God says not to live in fear. Yet, there are many that I have seen that say it was the best decision they made and wished they would of made it sooner. Just wondering if you could comment, and if you felt and experienced these symptoms that I have now before your surgery. Thanks so much.. God Bless

October 4th is my big day !! I'm also a vibrant young woman(42yrs old) who has a long life ahead of me but was constantly being tied down due to my health issues surrounding my bicorniate uterus. Horrible pain,horrible periods, that lasted at least 3weeks!!! Clotting and always having migraines sucked the life outta me!! Blood transfusions were always in my future because hemoglobin levels were extremely low! Soooo ,I'm finally gonna do it,it's time. My children are grown, my baby boy is going to college soon, and I have one new grandchild that needs me in his life! My husband and I talked and talked about it before I went to see a gynecologist and this is what she said" that F-er needs to come out"!! Please pray for me!!! Oh and your video was soooo helpful!! I am having the Davinci hysterectomy done in two weeks!!

Did you experience weight loss?? I am having my partial hysterectomy at the beginning of the new year and I am worried of weight gain afterwards!
All About K'Chelle (19 дней назад)
Yeap, weight gain is a possibility. Before my surgery 6 years ago I weighed 135 about a year later my weight went up to 168. I was depressed because of this, I started exercising got my weight back down to 148. This past year, I was super busy with school, work & ect, so I barely had time to exercise now my weight is back up to 153, this is from only 5 months with no exercise. I have always been a picky eater so I know it is a hormonal imbalance.

I cancelled my hysterectomy after reading about these common procedures & myths of a “Happy” Hysterectomy. Even with the fibroids, polyps, and heavy bleeding, I’m glad I was able to research. https://www.hormonesmatter.com/hysterectomy-womens-healthcare-con/ http://www.hormonesmatter.com/post-hysterectomy-skeletal-anatomical-changes/ http://theequalizerfcw.blogspot.com/2010/10/websites-exploit-women-worried-about.html?m=1 http://www.hersfoundation.com/ https://www.empowher.com/community/share/hystersisters-responds-fda-communication-limiting-hysterectomy-choices

I had an abdominal hysterectomy 4/23 and stayed in the hospital for 3 days. The doctor removed my uterus, cervix, and Fallopian tubes. I kept both ovaries and have no hormonal or menopause side effects. Thankfully I had no complications besides the normal soreness and a bit of an issue getting in and out of bed for the first 10 days. I recently had my 2 wk check up and I’m feeling amazing! No more pain, periods, bloating and overall discomfort. I had several large uterine fibroids which was the reason for my surgery.
Carmen M (2 месяца назад)
On a more personal note if you don't mind how is it for you when having sexual relations? Since the cervix was removed how is the sex? Do you notice any difference? Feel different? Thanks for feedback
dogma71 (4 месяца назад)
I'm 10 months post op and I lost weight. You can't eat crazy in the first 6 weeks or you will gain weight. Don't calorie restrict hardcore either. You have to eat the right foods to heal up your incisions. Drink plenty of water and walk as much as you can with out over doing it.

I just had my Hysterectomy 3weeks ago. I had my uterus and cervix removed only. I still have my ovaries and fallopian tubes. I fell amazing. I got my uterus and cervix removed from my lower abdomin because i had large multiple fibroids, that were making me, in abdominal pain all the time, somewhat heavy menstrual cycles, stomach always bloated, constipated, and just always tired and in pain. My sugery was a huge success. My incision was made very low in my pubic hair line and not very long. It looks great as it is still healing but. I feel amazing. I'm off all my pain meds. And my quality of life is so much better. Praise Jesus!!! I feel so Blessed and free of All my past symptoms. I'm also very happy I will never have a menstrual cycle again. I'm 47 and don't want any kid's so this Hysterectomy Surgery was fine for me😊. Thank you for your Awesome Video Tamika☺. Really helped me to hear your experience. I'm De De from Michigan.

I just saw your video and burst into tears.. I've been living with endometriosis my whole life and I'm turning 40 this year. I totally relate with it when you said it had broken you down . I've had a laparoscopy every 3 yrs for the last 9 yrs. I'm hanging by a thread😢 did you have a full hysterectomy or a partial? Also you look amazing! I'm so scared I'll gain more weight than I already do with the bloating.. you inspire me❤️
Simply Tamika (11 месяцев назад)
Awwww. Thank you. I had a partial hysterectomy I still have my ovaries. It’s the best decisions I could have made for myself. I am so sorry to hear about your problems. It can really get hard when you have to constantly deal with the issues. It really affects your life in a way that breaks you down indeed. I did gain a little weight but the trade off is well worth it. Best wishes to you in whatever you decide and God Bless!

Hey Tamika Thank you so much for your video, I am having a partial hysterectomy in two weeks( uterus, cervix, and fallopian tube‘s) and I am so nervous....

Hi, if its not too personal, can u tell me the average cost of the surgery please if you dont mind? Im from the Caribbean and i would like to come to the US to get it done laparoscopically since this option is not offered in Trinidad and Tobago according to my research. Im 33 years old with fibroids, very anemic and its horrible. I really dont want to have open surgery with a large incision so im weighing my options.

I Red hysterectomy is pretty awful you get early menopauze, decreased libido, depression the list goes on. Doctors are trying to sell it hard because it lines their pockets.
Chocolate Cake (22 дня назад)
Question everything. Your names it all and you should. If you go Google it will tell you most hysterectomies that were unnecessary are performed on black women for fibroids. They are other alternatives besides surgery that the doctor refuses to tell you because hysterectomies pay more than them. Giving up your womanhood shouldn't be so damn easy . Told me the same thing but at 54 still having a monthly and have fibroids I refused. Once I stop my monthly for good they are gonna shrink anyway.

Kristi Ann hi Kristi, I am Just Reading a book by dr.Mendelsohn and He says hysterectomy has side effects the surgeon wont tell you about. Among side effects are: early menopauze, decreased sexual libido or loss od sex drive, painful sex, depression. I Dont know why you wanting it Done but I would really weigh my options here. Because even if you take hormonal therapy you might end up myserable is this really Worth it? Do your research before jumping on the operating table.
keishajoash (1 год назад)
Hi Tamika. I just had my hysterectomy done just a week ago. Same surgery as you. But I am feeling so bloated with gas and cramps and my stomach looks like I m pregnant with all that swelling. Will it ever flatten out back to normal coz I was not fat before. My stomach was bulging due to the fibroids but after surgery it looks worse. I m scared
Simply Tamika (1 год назад)
Hi Kristi! The main negative would be as time goes on I have had issues with weight gain. It's harder to loss the weight as well. I have gained about 20 pounds since the surgery. Other than that, It's been about 3 years since the surgery and I feel really good.

So I'm looking though YouTube and looking at other woman's experiences of going though a hysterectomy... and I am so stressed about deciding weather to do it or not!! I had the essure done in 2014 after having my son... and now after 3 years of having it I feel so much pain and I've been dealing with heavy bleeding I even bleed in between periods!!!! Reason for getting it because I have a heart condition and only had my son and decided that closin the factory was a must since I felt complete with my baby boy.... now I don't know what to do I've thought about a hysterectomy so I can end my pain and suffering because living the way I am right now is just not living! I don't know what to do!!!!
Renita Lewis (1 год назад)
This is not the case for every women who has a hysterectomy. There are a lot of side effects to having a hysterectomy. Yes you stop the horrible bleeding and the constant pain. However, having a hysterectomy comes with it own set of issues.

Let's be clear that this video should be retitled as partial hysterectomy which is totally different than a full hysterectomy. She has ovaries meaning she has hormones still. Total hystorectomies are a totally different ballgame.
Britta Olson (3 месяца назад)
Lynns Bath Boutique Not everyone's ovaries work after partial hysterectomy. I've known someone and read about people who still have to get hormones & people who say their sex life is over who kept their ovaries and cervix. That's why I'm trying everything else first.
Annette Melnychuk (4 месяца назад)
Lynns Bath Boutique the removal of the ovaries and Fallopian tubes is an operation called salpingo oophorectomy. I had the TAH-BSO, which total abdominal hysterectomy-bilateral salpingo oophorectomy. Which means I had both of my ovaries and Fallopian tubes, cervix and uterus taken out. Yes having that puts you straight into menopause. Partial is just having your uterus taken out.

Hi, docs have recommended for me to have this surgery. I just watched another video and it literally scared the crap out of me. I think the scariest part is loss of feeling during intercourse n the shifting of the rib cage(bones). Have u felt/had any problems with that?
Simply Tamika (1 год назад)
Hi Lisa. I am not sure where you heard either of those things but I haven't had those problems. My sex life is amazing now and my rib cage has not shifted. It's been three years plus since my surgery.

Hi Tamika! I had it done June 7, 2017 I was frightened but it had to be done because I had a 16 lb. fibroid turned tumor that had started in one of my ovaries. now I just fear a little bit of the unknown of going into menopause so abruptly. mine was a total hysterectomy by the way. thank you for sharing your story Tamika I hope you are still doing well.
gwennie (1 год назад)
I just had a complete abdominal hysterectomy last week, everything removed because of extremely large fibroids, cysts, etc. my uterus was enlarged and tilted, and I looked pregnant. I'm 53 and should have done this years ago. I had to have the vertical incision because they were afraid I might have cancer. a cat scan showed a lot of scar tissue. I had 3 miscarriages over the years too. I'm very sore but I am looking forward to life again and feeling good for once! !

I am having a partial hysterectomy in 2 weeks at age 29. I'm on the internet searching because I'm so scared my body is going to have all these issues after. Seeing this video gives me hope and actually brought tears seeing how happy you are.... I so want that, I want my quality of life back. I have one "good" week a month and I feel like the rest of the month I let my family down because mommy is "sick" or I never feel good. Thank you for sharing it brings me comfort and I pray I can share a similar story after mine.
Simply Tamika (1 год назад)
+honesty johnson God bless you. It's a hard decision but when you get your "good" quality of life back it will be well worth it. I struggled with the decision for a while and now I can honestly say that it is one of the best decisions I have ever made in my life. No more pain. No more embarrassing accidents. No more soaked bed sheets. No more stress. I said yes to me and it feels amazing 😉 still amazing!! I pray that all goes well with your surgery.

I am 25 years old. I have to have one done but I'm only getting my uterus removed she's leaving my ovaries to control my hormones. I am soooo scared I feel so nervous and worried I have two kids but I feel so young to do this. My periods are lasting 3-6 months straight just bleeding I hope doing the surgery is the right decision.!
Emma Neilson (1 год назад)
Im watching this 2 days after my cervix, uterus, fallopian tube, a section of my bowel that had endometriosis on it were removed. Mine was done with the DaVinci robotic surgery, and wtf!?! I honestly hurt less than a 'normal period' Ladies, if you're hurting or have any reason to have this done *keeping ovaries if you can* DO IT! My pain is so low, it's unbelievable to me. Im looking forward to the rest of the recovery & not being sick 2 weeks every single month. Its 100% worth it, and Im saying this 2 day's after my surgery♡ I also had a bladderinstention & cystoscopy at the same time & that's where most my pain is coming from, and some tugging on my stitches. So much easier than just making it through another month. If you're putting it off because of the pain, dont be. They will give you pain meds & they work. The pain is totally controllable & Ive had pretty much zero bleeding. Would do it again!

Hi Vanessa, I due to have surgery soon but I chickened out years ago. I'm 45, 3 adult kids and an 8 yr old. I'm scared too but I do know we can't go wrong with prayer. I'd like to hear how you turn out. I believe this to be a success story and you will say (why was I scared). Fight that fear with faith. When that feeling come on pray it away, sing it away and beat fear down. I pray your doctor will have a great team. I will pray for the person who rolls you to the operating room and for that person whom will stand at your head just before you close your eyes. I truly pray that you feel a calm spirit on them. you and I and others need to get rid of this big life interuption called a period. Ever wonder why it's even called a period. smile.

I'm watching all these video's even surgeries. I'm one of those people who read so much its too much.You video makes me feel better about doing this.I am at stage 4 endo the pain is so bad I have trouble taking care of our daughter she is 2.I know I do not want anymore unless we adopt I have Lupus SLE and too many medically problems that can hurt a baby and I was lucky to have 1.I'm just scared of how I will feel emotionally more then physically.I know I can endure a lot of pain.. but I do not want to be a moody mess with my 2 year old.Or to not feel feminine thats a odd feeling .But its a real fear.

Brooklyn Girl (1 год назад)
Oh my goodness, I am so nervous. I have suffered with Endometriosis and Polycystic Ovaries. I am basically enslaved to my reproductive organs. At 39 and this Thursday I have decided with my Doctor that since this is my 3rd endometriosis and cystectomy surgery I am going to have the hysterectomy. I am so nervous but just want this to be over with. Your video is so comforting and reassuring. If I am happy my husband will b happy also. Better life, energy, sex, everything. Praying i will feel as great as you.
Honii B (11 месяцев назад)
Brooklyn Girl how did it all go? I'm in the same position as you were. I'm 39 and I'm going in April to possibly get a hysterectomy.. they wanted to do it 3 yrs ago but I was too afraid. They just removed the scar tissue .. it's all back as usual.. I'm so scared.

Hi Tamika! I stumbled across your page while looking up videos about hysterectomies and I'm so glad I did because now I'm a subbies! I am scheduled to have an abdominal hysterectomy in less than a month and I'm terrified. I'm not having alot of bleeding because I have a Mirena IUD, which is embedded in my uterus. My uterus is twice the size it should be and I have quiet a few large fibroids. For at least 6 months I've been exhausted all the time. If I sit still for more than 5 minutes I will fall asleep. I've had horrible headaches as well. I can't wait to see if this surgery will be the answer to most of the issues I've been experiencing. Thanks for sharing your story!
Simply Tamika (1 год назад)
+annette williams I pray that all goes well with your surgery. Thank you 😊

Hi Tamika, thank you for sharing your story.  I'm a few months pre-op and after a few months of weighing my options presented by 2 different doctors I've ultimately decided to go with the a hysterectomy.  I initially thought I'd go UFE but felt there was too much chance of the fibroids regenerating once the arteries healed etc.  I also didn't like the myomectomy for the same reasons - fibroids growing back and having to deal with this craziness all over again in 5-10 years or less.   I really just want to know how you are doing nowadays?  Are you still happy with your decision?  Have you had ANY problems...any at all??  Is sex still fulfilling??
Simply Tamika (1 год назад)
+ohionative3131 I am doing extremely well. It's one of the best decisions of my life. No regrets. I have not had any problems at all. Sex is amazing; even better than before surgery. There is no more pain associated with intimacy.
Nadia Douglas (1 год назад)
I hope this is not to personal BUT I'm 30 and scheduled for surgery next month. a huge part of me is excited. The only thing that I keep thinking is what if it changes my sex life for the worse.. would you say it changed yours??? :/

Nadia Douglas hi did you ever have your surgery ? How did it go
Nadia Douglas (1 год назад)
Simply Tamika awesome! this makes me feel so much better about the surgery! 3 more day's until surgery 😆
Simply Tamika (1 год назад)
I pray that all goes well with your surgery. Ok. So let me give you a couple of points. You will be able to have way more sex and anytime you want because you won't be bleeding all the time. As a matter of fact. You'll never have another period again. Doesn't that sound fantastic. Sex before surgery was very painful for me. Sex after surgery is amazing. I believe that not only will your sex life improve tremendously but your confidence will sky rocket causing your sex life to become awesome. Now you can add spontaneity to your vocabulary!!

SW Sweetie (2 года назад)
I held on to my dreaded fibroids for 11 years. Mostly because I didn't want to upset my mother and I didn't want to inconvenience people at work.  I'm having my surgery in November. I'm not looking forward to the pain, but I'm ready to stop planning my whole life around my excessive bleeding.  I can't suffer for the sake of other people anymore. I'm keeping my ovaries.
Praizn Forhim (2 года назад)
+Simply Tamika Thank you for sharing. I'm in the process of having this surgery soon. My quality of life is so terrible. Having bleeding off and on for months, I don't want to do anything but stay at home. I'm in pain and feel fatigue nearly every day. I really want to get this over so I can move on with my life. I have two daughters, one grandson and another one on the way. I'm good in that aspect!!
SW Sweetie (2 года назад)
Thank you. :')
Simply Tamika (2 года назад)
Good for you. I am glad you finally made the decision for yourself. Your quality of life is getting read to improve tremendously. I pray that all goes well with your surgery. God Bless!
Aisha Hale (2 года назад)
I've been putting surgery off for years.... but it has to happen now. I have been reading the most terrible stories about hysterectomy surgery. 😏did your body shape change after surgery. dis you gain a lot of weight??
jules ju (2 года назад)
you feel really good afterwards for about a two years! But you do notice sex is not the same and you change start putting weight on. then weight gain is you going in to a early menopause....you rush in to old age...I wish I was still me complaining about my periods than watching my hair thin my skin thin my bones thin. even if you keep your ovaries they shut down soon after. Hrt is a joke they never get it right.

Nothing changed except my lifestyle got way better. My body is the same and I don't feel like I'm missing anything inside.

Are you on HRT or have you been on HRT for the past year. Has it helped ? If you Did take HRT did you get side effects and did you gain weight ?  Thanks
120paj (2 года назад)
Great, Thank you for your reply!!! Continue to inspire people!!!!
Simply Tamika (2 года назад)
No, I am not on HRT. I still have my ovaries so I won't be going through menopause for a while.
Shirlene McLellan (2 года назад)
I'm having the same surgery in a month or so but I don't have a sex drive now I'm hoping to get it back after my procedure.

I am scheduled to have my hysterectomy on July 11. I'm having my uterus and cervix removed. I'm glad to read that your sex life hasn't changed. Do you have any issues because of not having your uterus and cervix?
Donna Berstler (2 года назад)
I did pass all my tests. So Surgery is a go for Monday July 11.
Donna Berstler (2 года назад)
I just need to pass this dam ekg first. I do have high blood pressure, back on my meds so I hope all goes well today.

I just have one more question. How bad was the pain afterwards? I'm not going to chicken out, I just don't like to be surprised. I like to know what to expect.
Simply Tamika (2 года назад)
+Kayona Hernandez It actually is not that bad. I was able to move around without much discomfort. They give you plenty pain meds as well.
HeySis1989 (2 года назад)
I'm having this surgery on 20th. So nervous. finding videos like this is amazing and gives me so much hope. Thank you. Do you have any tips on what is helpful during recovery? i.e. durmaplast (numbing) spray? or cooling pads? etc?
Simply Tamika (2 года назад)
+HeySis1989 I pray that everything goes well. The aftermath is really not that painful. I took the pain meds for a few days and after that I was almost ready for everything. I will say that you will probably need something for the gas and constipation.
Alvin Fernandez (2 года назад)

You're such an inspiration! I pray that I'm like this after a year. I just had surgery March 7th. I lost everything. Physically I'm feeling great. It's the emotional part I'm struggling with. With God's grace and mercy I'm sure I will get thru this. Keep being a Blessing!! Thank you!
