I had axillary clearance and then hysterectomy 5 days later and start chemo on thurs, after 5 weeks post hysterectomy (my hubby also had heart surgery in feb, we are 49/50) we made love very tentatively but it was fine and just as satisfying for both of us, its just a slightly different you, i know i dont feel at all sexy at the moment but it made no difference. Tell him how you feel, important to talk about things xx
Hi, it will pass. Your husband loves YOU not the image of the person you were. It is difficult to imagine how they can fancy you with scars and baldness BUT you are STILL the same woman he married, just with a few issues at the moment. I do find if you can make a bit of effort on the sex side, it is great cos its the ONLY timeI feel like a normal woman and a proper couple again. This is one thing that will not change. If it makes you feel better, some nice nightime wear or undies does help I find. It makes me feel pretty and sexy again.
good luck with all the treatment
