Hi I'm thinking of having a total hysterectomy via laparoscopic hysterectomy

Hi I'm thinking of having a total hysterectomy via laparoscopic hysterectomy in the near future. I don't like the sound of h r t treatment after though. Are you able to have a total hysterectomy and not have any h r t after and just go through your menopause early ?

Are moving and eating triggers for you?

It seems when I lay perfectly still for a minute or two, the pain is greatly reduced. As soon as I move, it begins to hurt worse again.

If I'm have a partically painful day, eating causes me a lot of pain about 5-30 minutes afterwards. If I'm have a normal day, I'll hurt just a little bit after I eat, but it's enough to be noticeable.

Does anyone else experience this or any other triggers?

Exercise?

Do you exercise regularly?

I have a few good days every month, where I feel like I have so much energy and life is good. I try to workout on these days but it's always a mistake as I get endo pain a couple of days after. The pain after excercising is the worst! I see a difference in pain levels when I do nothing compared to being more active.

How do you stay active and manage the pain?

shooting pain

have you ever had pain that shoots up through your vaginal/pelvic area (almost like bone) that only lasts for a minute or two and then goes away but its enough to make you stop and seize right up until its over? - what about rectum area?? during and not during your period?? do you find this normal? How long have you had it happen? Have you brought it up to your doc?
