Hi Michelle! I'm Rosie, and I'm new here too. I'm SO VERY thankful that I've found this group. You have all been more help to me already than you can possibly know. I haven't felt too well for awhile and am behind on answering posts, but I want you all to know I've appreciated your comments, advice, your stories, and just knowing that you all are here and that I'm not alone in this. Until I found this list I really was beginning to feel like I was totally alone with this. Every doctor I've seen has told me that I'm in the 1% of women that have this kind of problem after a Hysterectomy. It makes me feel like a freak and that I should apologize for not healing "correctly". Anyway, I will try to find time over the weekend to read the archives and catch up on some posts. Please bear with me if I don't answer everyone promptly - I'm rather slow sometimes, but your replies to my introduction were most appreciated. Rosie
