Not that I'm complaining...(possible TMI)

The gyn who sent me to the surgeon who did my hysterectomy mentioned that even though my ovaries are now gone, I may not need HRT and may not have the usual menopause symptoms.  OK, I can definitely go with that!  It's been about 6 weeks, and I don't know what to expect, but so far I seem to be just fine.  Aside from residual tenderness in the belly area, of course, but that IS expected.  And itching on the scars!!!!!

Apparently the big board of gyns-- whoever makes the rules for when you need to do what -- has decided that pelvics and paps are needed only every 5 years if your past results are all normal.  Same for mammograms, per that board.

And if you don't have a cervix anymore, there are no pap smears!  Yay!
