After suffering from cysts, first on one ovary (which resulted in its removal), then a year later more problems
with cysts along with adenomyosis, I had a total hysterectomy
in March 08. I'm on the Climara patch and feel great, better than I've felt in a long time.
I'm 49 and my recovery took longer than the 6 weeks. Actually, at nearly 7 months out I still, very occasionally, feel that fatigued feeling. I kind of hit the ground running 3 weeks out of surgery, though.
