AbstractThe recovery from emergency hysterectomy of 18 Chinese patients is described. During the recovery period, patients experienced fear, depression, anger, doubt, selfreproach, and multiple somatic complaints without physical origins. Sexual activity was reduced. The recovery course was particularly difficult for those patients who were nonsymptomatic before the operation, those who still wanted to bear more children, and those who lacked family support. These women needed continuous reassurance and ample opportunities to ventilate their feelings. None of the patients had psychiatric sequelae requiring expert consultation after the operation. It is emphasized that the reactions and needs of these patients deserve recognition, attention, and follow-up.
