Many women have a dramatic improvement in level of depression and pelvic pain following a hysterectomy. Pelvic pain was reduced from 96% before the operation to 19% after; 93% suffered depression before and 38% after. These study results mean that hysterectomies need not be postponed in women suffering from depression. 10% of the 600,000 US women who have a hysterectomy each year suffer mostly from pelvic pain.
