So I had my LAVH/BSO a little over 5 months ago. Although there were some complications post op and I spotted for what felt like forever things have been going pretty well. Sex is actually enjoyable (yippee!!
) no more bleeding or checking the panties and TP ever time I go to make sure I don't need to grab a pad/ change a tampon.. well if you are reading this odds are you know what I mean.
I should have known it was too good to be true. Now that being said, I wouldn't change a thing. I FEEL better than I have in years. I was basically in pain from the day I started my mensys. Now on to the bad.
Post-Op I couldn't pee. I don't mean like it hurt I mean I had a foley cath in and wasn't producing any urine. Come to find out I lost a fair amount of blood and had some trauma to the bladder. (well duh
) eventually I started peeing again and didn't worry about it anymore, except, I did. I starting having accidents where I would pee with out warning. Any temperature change, lol, or cough had me crossing my legs and praying
. I grabbed some panty liners and upped the kegels, no biggie, I survived childbirth three times, Kegel and I are old friends. Except, I was waking to go pee in the middle of the night, and sometimes I had to pee so suddenly and so badly that my potty training 2 yo daughter wound up sitting between my legs so I could pee and she could "try". Don't judge me! It was that or the shower
..... I started to gain weight, 30# in 3 months! and my legs swelled. Pitting edema and I got reacquainted. Yesterday I swallowed my pride and went to the doctors. I was dx with voiding dysfunction and sent to a specialist. Today I did something I had hoped to never do. I logged back on and clicked the road less traveled tab. I guess my journey here isn't over yet but I sure am glad I have hystersisers for support!
