hysterectomy and cancer

I wrote about the D&C that I had about a month ago, the D&C was fine, but they found a polyp in my uterus, and removed it, and had it biopsied and it ended up being positive for a cancer called adenosarcoma, which is a very rare uterine cancer.

The only treatment is a hysterectomy, removing everything.... cervix, uterus, ovaries, fallopian tubes, as it is resistant to radiation, so I need a full hysterectomy, which will happen within 4-6 weeks.

I'm terrified about the effects a hysterectomy is going to have on my body. I've read so much about a thirty lb weight gain, which I don't need, my weight is a struggle, as it is, I'm going to be going through menopause, and I'm just very scared.

Does anyone have an experience with a hysterectomy, and maybe they can shine some light on my nerves?

AS always, thanks, for all the support and help.
