    Tell me that you meant your own parents as opposed to pupils' parents!
    I had mine around 15 years ago at the age of 38 - best thing I've ever had done!
  2. I had the op in my late 40s. I was determined to make a quick recovery and I did. I had long, heavy, painful periods and was usually anaemic, My only regret was that I didn't have it done sooner, trying other unsuccessful treatments first.

    seren_dipity, I did mean parents at school, but not that they've been told what I'm having done, just that I will we away from school during Term 6 whilst I recover from surgery.
    The Head did suggest that we have an additional stall at the Summer Fair 'Pin the scar on Mrs T'!! Personally, I hope they think it's cosmetic surgery - I might 'let it slip' that I'm having a facelift and then wait to see how long it is before someone has the nerve in September to tell me they don't think it's worked!
  4. I had mine when I was 29, when my son was born, and to save my life.
    When I was conscious the consultant patted my hand and said, "we've had to take away the nursery, but we've left the playroom".
    I've had no regrets...be positive and good luck.
