To Cut or Not to Cut

The insurance companies won't take me unless I've had a hysterectomy because I have fibroid tumors. I have insurance now, but it's running US$1200/month. Can't afford that for long.

The doctor said I don't need the hysterectomy, but it's one option.

I signed up for it, at Christmastime. However, my husband thinks I'm crazy to have surgery for insurance. (That does remind me of dystopian universes of the future.) And I'm worried about the recovery period.

Anyone out there had one recently? I'm wondering about recovery and my sanity.

  1. I had a hysterectomy in 2000. I was in the hospital for three days (althugh the normal stay is two days – I had some infection problems requiring the extra day). You'll be quite sore for a few weeks (no lifting or stairs!), but after it's all said and done, it's like you never had the surgery.
