on june 30th 2 days after i turned 25 i had a total abdominal hysterectomy where they took my uterus, cervix and right ovary and tube. the only thing that i have left inside me is my lest ovary. it is very hard to think that i will no longer ever be able to have any more children especially since my sister in pregnant and when she had her son we were pregnant together. right now i dont even want to see a pregnant person because it hurts me so bad. i feel guilt for feeling like this but i dont know what to do and every time i think about it i cry and cry. is this normal. has anyone else gone through the same thing??

I have not been through this, but from what I understand this is a normal greiving process. you are greiving the children you will never have, your expectations are not going to be met. You should probably go to a group counseling session, ask your doc for a number to a help/support group. There are probably other women in your town that are goin through this or have went through it. You said you and your sis were preg;nant at the same time so you have one child? Be so thankful for that, but do not suffer alone call your doc today, you dont want to get so depressed you cant take care of yourself, or your child.
