I'm curious how many women on this forum have had a hysterectomy? And if I can be nosey, for what reason? And were you happy with that decision? I have pelvic pain and now also prolonged bleeding (not heavy but goes for a couple of weeks with only a week in between), thought to be two different conditions. After the pill, hormone treatments etc. have failed and I've been cleared of fibroids etc., a hysterectomy has been proposed as all my doctors have left to offer me. Dr. Sarno talks about TMS including 'gynaecological conditions that are the stuff of everyday life' and I'm wondering how far that goes... I've read @Ellen 's story and am wondering if there are more like this. It's been nearly three years of all this and I need to do something so am considering all options, even ones that seem so extreme.
