Re: Fibroids

There are several treatments for fibroids including medical (hormonal or not), radiological (focussed ultrasound or embolization) and surgical (transcervical, keyhole and open surgery) methods.
The recovery for the three operations is 1-2 weeks, 2-4 weeks and 4-6 weeks respectively.

Re: Painful during sex post hysterectomy

Yes there is the potential to use estrogem cream alongside dilator therapy - I would ask for a referral back to your gynaecological oncology service.

Re: Menopause & receding gums / gum disease
