It has been one month since my hysterectomy and I am feeling almost back to normal. I had been telling everyone that I am emotionally doing fine, but knew that deep down inside I was not.
I saw a therapist this past friday and I think that talking honestly about cancer and the feelings of loss due to not being able to ever bear children brought a lot of feelings out. I have been putting on a happy face to protect my loved ones, especially my mother who is emotionally fragile due to my cancer and other family situations.
Deep down inside, I am terrified that the cancer can come back and I said this out loud for the first time this weekend to my husband.
Would love to hear how you managed these feelings and if they ever really go away as you reach different milestones such as 3 month check ups, 6 month check ups, etc.
