Yes I did. Had the full works. Hysterectomy and repairs. I had the usual 3months off work but wasn’t returned to work properly. All the surgeons good work ruined and I had loads of problems requiring more time off sick and another op to try and correct things but it wasn’t successful. Having a male manager didn’t help as he thought a hysterectomy was something minor, ‘lots of women have them’. I had 1 days help and then it was back to riding a bike for 4 plus hours a day. Before you leave hospital, you should be seen by a physio. Ask her to recommend a plan for when you return to work. Three months seems a long time to be off but it is a major op and we do a strenuous job. Good luck with the surgery. Despite the problems I had it was the best thing I ever did, if you know what I mean.
