Are you having a hysterectomy?

Are you worried about what it means for you now, and in the future?

Would you like help and guidance on the practical aspects of managing your surgery?

If the answer to one or more of these question is a resounding YES! Then 101 Handy Hints For A Happy Hysterectomy is the RIGHT book for you.

Hi, my name is Linda, and I had my total hysterectomy when I was 32 because I had severe endometriosis. Everything was removed, womb, cervix, ovaries and fallopian tubes; and this is the book I wish I had before my hysterectomy.

The book is a mine of information, helpful suggestions and support – all written in short, easy to read and understand, bite sized chunks – that will help you to make it through the whole experience to emerge happy and healthy at the end of it.

It is based on my own experience, as well as the 1000′s of women that have contacted me at The Hysterectomy Association over the years. I believe it answers almost all the questions that the majority of women have, and it even manages to put some fun back into your recovery!

This book will help you to feel calmer about your surgery, and will make it easier for you and your family to plan your recovery.

It is divided into FIVE easy to read sections …..

  • Preparing for hysterectomy
  • Getting ready for hospital
  • So now you’re in the hospital
  • Recovery time
  • In the long term

And it gives you masses of hints and tips like the:

13 hints to make recovery easier, and quicker
6 complete sets of questions and lists – including lists of all the things you shouldn’t do (including one to put up on the fridge door so that everyone else knows what you can, and cannot, do!)
16 tips on all the practical things to do to help yourself and your family cope 12 things to help you make sense of it all
20 complementary therapies, supplements and remedies to help your body heal itself
4 fantastic smoothie and cake recipes for healing the body

…. as well as even more information on how to decide whether to take HRT or not; whether you should have your ovaries and cervix removed; exercise sheets showing what you can do at different stages; dealing with the embarresing aspects of surgery like painful wind and constipation; coping with the boredom of recovery and generally getting your life back to normal.

  1. had my hysterectomy and various repairs done 2 weeks ago today, this book is so helpful! got everyone at the hospital reading it and logging on when they got home. makes you realise when you are worried about something that its quite normal and in some instances even tells you what to do about it! excellent. thanks linda so much xx

  2. After my hysterectomy my migraines disappeared, My aches and pains went and i had more energy. Not immediately after surgery of course! but within weeks. I recovered very quickly despite being 45 when I had the operation and think that was because I couldn’t wait to get back to my work which I love and to get back on the dance floor where I competed. I was found to be practicing my Cha Cha Cha routine in the corridor on day 2 of my operation and was very soon signed out. :-X

I'm always interested in what people think and love having a debate so why don't we have a chat :-)
