User :   Warm greetings to you sir,
My wife was operated in 2005 for removal of fibroids & utrus was also removed. Since then she is suffers from depression. Please note that, my wife is a docter & i am not. She gets upset for flimsy reasons, gets angly particularly with me & my kids; she finds fault where there is none. I have been trying to persuade her to consult a specialists, but she is weary as her experiance with the gynecologist in 2005 was not good. Inspite of instructing not to remove utrus & overy, the surgon has done away with them in key-hole surgery. It has also shattered our sexual life completely. Sir, may i know any remedial measures please
