Life Saver!! I was told about HysterSisters by my aunt. I cannot tell you how helpful and encouraging this site is during recovery!! I joined about one week post op and do not know what I would've done without it as I progressed through recovery. I joined the recovery thread for the week of my surgery. It is so comforting to have other people, who are going through the same process, to talk to, who understand the ups and downs of healing from this surgery. Recommend to anyone having a hysterectomy!!
Thank you! I look at my check points daily. I don't have to "pester" my Doctor with odd questions. Now I KNOW when I should be talking to my Doctor and I have the sense that I know what I need help with! I am over joyed to have this wealth of knowledge from other women who have gone through this major surgery before me. My only regret is that I did not see this prior to my hysterectomy. This is a very wonderful app!
Extremely Helpful This app is a great tool for those who are getting or are recovering from a hysterectomy. It has articles, community forums, and even a checkpoint calendar that helps with prep and recovery from a hysterectomy. AWESOME APP!!!
Same info that is on the website. I was looking for something to track pms after hysterectomy since I still have my ovaries. I don't want to send emails and make a diary of it. I want a quick simple way to track my symptoms and this doesn't do it.
One year One year later, this site is still a valuable resource. I am 34 years old and was 33 at the time of my TAH. I certainly wasn't expecting this so young and this site helped me prepare mentally for my surgery and aftercare. I recommend this site for any woman who is embarking on this journey.
Should have Doctor recommendation!! READ THIS! JOIN HERE! Didn't get a tenth of this info from the Doctor's office & I don't believe I could be doing so well 4 days after surgery without the helpful hints, advice, support or just communal knowledge! You should sign in here BEFORE agreeing to any hysterectomy, JUST TO BE MORE INFORMED!
