I am the mother of three children and 40 years old. Recently I finally made the step to consult my gynocologist about a possible hysterectomy. All of us know that many days we chalk up pain to our "condition" with CFS or Fibro. Well I have done that for the last two years. My question is how is such an invasive procedure going to affect my problems and pain with the fibro? I am concerned that I won't bounce back like most women do after this common procedure. I have been told by my doctor's that it is necessary for me to undergo both procedures and they should be done together not at seperate times. If anyone could give me their insight or experience with the recuperation and the domino effect regards to the fibro. I do spend lots of time on the heating pad and hope once these procedures are performed that I can retire the heating pad.
