Kryss I actually celebrated with a party after returning from hospital I never felt better and certainly did not feel less of a woman but then I never considered my feminism was only in the parts that allowed me to reproduce.
They actually eneded up scraping the endometriosis off my spine and this was part of the reason I was having so much pain and lets not get started about the bleeding every 2 weeks. Celebrate the end of the pain and be happy when you can go past a certain aisle in the supermarket and spend the money on little luxuries like I did. Take this as a new beginning and new you. I was very young to have mine done only 35 but it really was a relief.
My husband did not see me differantly either he saw a woman revitalised and happy and definitely better without the pmt LOL. Hope all goes well for you.
