Dear Andy, Welcome to this site. You have come to the right place. I don't have any specific advice other than to be very careful of hysterectomies. I have never been able to have children and I miss them. There is a big hole in my life that can never be filled. Oh, yes, my life is full, as a matter of fact its overfull, and I' m in intense pain most of the time. I've had operations galore, and I do have a bad case of adhesions, but I wish I'd not listened to know it all doctors. You are too young to lose your childbearing gift unless its a matter of life or death. I hope that you can find the right doctors. Good luck and may God Bless you and Keep you Always.. Love, Sally Grigg
