Hi Ine, Smiles to you :)
I'm 30 days post op full hysterectomy with ovaries taken as well.
Everyone is so different and I really hope you have a easy time of it. I cant lie- I found the hole thing horrible BUT totally Do-able and I got through it!!! I was so worried that I would not feel the same old me afterwards but I do :). I felt sad that I was going through this and losing my ovaries was a big deal for me. But now it's all okay and I'm fine with it and its saved my life in the long run.
All I can suggest to you is rest afterwards, always be kind to your self and take things easy. While you are recovering watch movies or read a great book, shop online and sleep inbetween times. Try and enjoy the "down time"
I have only had a few hot flushes afterwards and nothing more. Every day I feel a bit better as I recover from the operation. it's just been slowly, slowly for me, day by day.
I'm sorry you are going through this and having such a bad time with hot flushes and bad tempers along with the worry of your up and coming operation but I do hope things go well for you and YES after this it will be a New Year and you will be cancer free and can move on with your life and happy times ahead.
