Moodiness after partial Hysterectomy

It has been 4 weeks and I have been so moody. One time I am nice and the next, I am horrible. Is it possible that even though ovaries were left in, that I am starting to have hormonal trouble? Is this possible?

I think this is the story of the average woman who goes through this...It is not fun..Takes a while to recover and healing does not happen overnight...It took me months, but I had my ovaries taken out too...

Good luck,
Caroline

Moodiness after partial Hysterectomy
Yes, I realize about the healing process, because I am still really sore. I guess though what I'm really wanting to know is, with the ovaries still in and me having the mood swings like I am, will the doctor put me on some kind of hormonal medicine to straighten me out? Do they do this with the ovaries still in?

I was just looking and I think they do...You could ask the doctor at the top of the page this question if you want to...It is on the left and you just hit on it and come to where you can Topic...I really can see how it could cause mood swings as it is such a shock to our system....

I posted to you this morning and came on to edit a word and deleted it by mistake.. Rolling Eyes .I have to say that I laughed when I read your post..."Your moods are off the wall and you can't even stand yourself"...Hopefully you now have a good excuse for this...I believe after you go through a surgery such as this, that you have every right in the world to feel like you do...Heck, even shout about how you feel...You hurt...It does not go away easy..They have turned around everything inside of us and took some things out...Who wouldn't be moody?????

Relax and get your strength back...You are the same woman you were before this surgery, only lacking the mess of a period...Now enjoy this special place in life...Once you get used to not dealing with the mess that we used to have to go through, you will just love it...This I can promise you...

Take care,
Caroline

You are only a month out of surgery...You still have your ovaries so you should be doing pretty good...Seeing your hormone levels were normal, that is great...We each heal different...The only thing is that they do not tell us that it will hurt so much...Between you and I, I think a lot of the problem has to do with the fact that they took this special part of us out...We feel empty...I remember the first time we had sex it was pretty tight and painful...Those were the "faking it" days...As I felt better internally, I acted better on the outer side...Took a while, but eventually I got the two places of me to jell...I think more than anything that we just plain feel sorry for each ourselves....

I felt like crap...I didn't want anyone at the hospital nor to visit me...I only found out that I was normal when a few friends had this same operation and felt the same way that I did....This became my shinning moment...Mine was behind me....Now rest and look forward to your new life...Reschedule that birthday party and have fun....You know we have both been blessed...This could have been something tragic...

Good luck,
Caroline

I had a partial hysterectomy 4 months ago. I only get moody right before I was SUPPOSE to get my period. I have all the signs. Sore breast and severe moodiness. I don't get the severe pain I use to get with my uterus in tact. I had adenomyosis and endometriosis. My urinary bladder, stomach and intestines were attached to my uterus like glue. It was a horrible undescribable pain. I guess what I'm trying to say is I'd rather be a moody bi... than go through what I went through. You can get treatment for severe moodswings. PEACE!

Endometriosis
Hey! We should talk Pls I had very similar adhesions. It is a very lonely place to be since endo is not cured per se because of surgery. And most people wont discuss it. Please talk to me lady. xoxo

hi my hubby and i are trying to decide if i should get a partial hyst...i have had consant bleeding for about 8 months now. we have tried all kinds of measures to stop this. we are on our third doctor and have hit a cross road. due to the constant bleeding i am now anemic and having severe headaches. so we are toying with partial hyst (leaving in cervix and ovary)...i want to make sure if i do this bc i do not want my sex drive or my sex with my hubby declined? i dont want to bleed anymore and i am tired of the pain i have with the bleeding. i want to be normal but if i will loose my sex drive to be with my hubby that makes me extremely nervous. any help will be appreciated

partical hyst
I am supposed to go though a partial hyst in a 1 week or so and I have been reading about these mood swings. that scares me. I am nice a calm right now. when I get my period I am moody but for mild I am still pretty calm. so it makes me wonder if my moods will be worse after the surgery. hormones don't agree with me. A doctor put me on hormones one time for my periods and I turned in to a monster. I did not like that. A lot of this happened and I lost friends because of it and I am terrified that I will go back to the place in my life after surgery and have really bad mood swings and become a monster again and for off on everyone in my life. I like the place I am in now nice a calm. But my doctor says I have inflammation of the uterus and that evidence of endo. I have severe periods for 5 years and it appears all the inflammation went outside my uterus. I am always bloated and swollen and gained a lot of weight throughout the last 5 years . I cant breath out of my abdomen and I am tired of this. so part of me says get rid of the parts. part of me says to not do it because of the mood swings. Any feed back would be great.
