How To Plan A Happy Hysterectomy Goodbye Uterus Party

Sharing is caring!

I would suggest to anyone having a hysterectomy to send off their uterus with a farewell celebration hysterectomy party! 

My uterus and I have been through so much together— the “big red” starting when I was 12, two pregnancies, two births, fibroids and tons of monthlies!

A celebration is also an opportunity for friends to show their support for your operation. Post-op, you’ll be resting and won’t want much company right away. As my friends and more importantly, as women, they completely understood my pain and my decision to undergo this procedure.

A pre-surgery farewell party for your angry uterus— “Bye, Felicia!”

I hosted a party at one of my favorite restaurants with my favorite girlfriends to say, “Bye, Felicia” to my angry uterus! 

Why was my uterus so angry? Because it’s had to deal with pesky painful fibroids growing all over it for the last three years. 

Sometimes the fibroids would cause lots of pressure, pain and extremely heavy-flow periods, once even putting me down for a week. I waited three years before deciding to have a hysterectomy surgery

In my wait, the fibroids only got MUCH bigger. 

There are less invasive options to have fibroids removed, lasered away, or controlled (potentially), but the only sure way to rid them for good without the worry of them coming back is with a hysterectomy procedure. After three years of them only getting worse, I made my decision to proceed with a hysterectomy.

We said, “Cheers!” and toasted to cancelling my monthly subscription! No more monthly cycles after your hysterectomy!

To prepare for my party, the only thing I made, other than dinner reservations, were these cute little farewell signs.

I used computer paper, my printer, laminating machine and paper straws (getting rid of the uterus, but saving the dolphins with the paper straws.) The invitations were created in minutes and sent out with the Hobnob app electronically. 

Then I picked out a party dress and showed-up! I was already practicing doing the least— which is the recipe to follow after surgery. I’m glad that I took the time (an hour, if that) to make the photo signs.

The photo signs were the perfect party favors to compliment the restaurant’s table setting, and the life of the party for my guests.

The only thing that was missing was a goodbye uterus piñata and maybe a hysterectomy cake!

No more cramping my style!

I knew this was going to be major surgery, but my recovery was more than I anticipated. 

It took two weeks before my first outing. My first out of the house experience was a massage with a group of influencers in my area to experience and promote a local day spa. I agreed to this pre-surgery and was so fortunate on the timing!

For my second outing, I was a panelist speaker at a women’s conference, and even wore boots with heels to the event (Yaasss, Prince)!

I had such a fantastic time being out and about socializing that I forgot that I was a patient! It was so good to feel like myself again.

I’m taking a cruise in week five, and I can’t wait! Once again, it’s a work thing (no kidding), and I’m blessed again on the timing.  

Even if you don’t believe me that it’s a working cruise, it’d be hard to hate on ‘lil ole me– the lady with the extra hard recovery!

Remember my hysterectomy story when I share my posts from the cruise— and know that your girl earned this one!
