I no longer miss my uterus and I still think my surgeon is awesome.

It’s been a year since my hysterectomy.  I have a lot of mixed feelings about that. I remember the roller coaster of joy at having my health issues finally resolved vs the sadness and uncertainty of having my girl parts surgically removed.

I actually grieved for my uterus, pre-cancerous cells and all.

Weird. I know.

But true nonetheless.

What a difference a year makes. I’m healthier and happier than I’ve been in ages. My eyes are brighter, my hair shinier, and my step is usually upbeat – at least when I’m not tripping over invisible carpet bumps. I’m using my newfound energy to explore art, friendship, acting, and travel.  I’m also finding new ways to eat right and get exercise. I’m on my way to living a better and longer life. I’m not moving as fast forward as I’d like – but I’m moving and that is what counts.

just found out today that the surgeon I was referred to and eventually made my permanent GYN,has been recognized by Castle Connolly Ltd. as not only one of the top doctors in Oklahoma, but in the United States as well. I’m happy for him.

  1. Awesome, Deana! I think a hysterectomy is like a great pair of shoes…every woman should have one! LOL Until you have gone through it, you can not explain the difference it makes in how you feel.
    Love you, Girl! Keep up the good work!


    • I love the comparative Rena. Granted Dr B did not take my ovaries. He thinks those little egg layers are good for me still. But over all I do feel better. I’ve still got a lot of weight to lose but I’m getting there. I also think it’s cool that he’s been nationally recognized. I think that is a great honor and he deserves it.
