Having a robotic hysterectomy what are some non estrogen alternatives for hot flashes also weight gain. Recovery time?
Is there an alternative for severe stage 2 cystocele other than mesh? I am an athlete, mom of 4, post hysterectomy from HPV 4 yrs, & only 36. Help!

Varies: The post operative pain after a hysterectomy varies from woman to woman, but is almost always well controlled with medications.
