A thousand times YES!

I'll be honest, that surgery was a lot more difficult than I thought.  I really did expect it to be more like my C-Sections...t'was nothing like my C-Sections.   After my second C-section I was driving within a couple weeks and, while exhausted, I got back into life.  Plus, you have the bonus of being totally in love with your newest little one after a C-Section.  After a hysterectomy no such bonus.
