The little bugs after hysterectomy

I am noticing so many little pesty things..3 weeks post/op..
1) the intense hot flashes
2) the burning in my belly button
3) not being able to completely empty my bladder
4) still have painful has bubbles
5) not being able to really have a good stretch
6) of course the emotions crying cause I can't do something like pick up my furry baby
Really hoping all this crazy little things go away soon....

I have to agree with you, stretching!! I was so jealous of my cat, she was alwaysby my side and twisted and stretched in so many ways that looked so comfy!! Still havent mastered a great abdominal stretch but getting there.

if you hold your breath while stretching, you get a good stretch and no pain, give it a try and let me know

Dont worry my dear. You are fresh out of surgery post 3 weeks. I had all those pesky symptoms and more than you can imagine. I also had a very painful vaginal cuff, which got infected at 8 weeks post op. Was hospitalized with iv antibiotics and pain meds in hospital for vaginal cuff cellulitis for 6 days. Came home on pain meds and antibiotcs for 10 days. Then put on pain management with morphene post op 12 weeks, Had 3 cat scans, and another hospital.stay for dyhydrayion and myofacial pain disorder. MRI was perfect, no other problems. Just need physical therapy. But now I am almost 4 months post surgery. And even though I went through so much, I am.now feeling so much better, no pain
No bloating and quite normal, even going througj menopause,so you will.do.just great in the next 3 to 4 months! Wait youll see! Hugs!

Thank you for your words of encouragement..An there are many other pesty little things some I forgot about until after I posted this..Numbness in right leg is another one...I am for sure hitting the menopause..Was up from midnight till about 2 am with a very intense hot flash my feet were even stinging an feeling very nausaua from it..I know in all good time it will get better.My biggest goal is to be able to go back to work when school starts back.Im a bus driver an don't want a user backs..So I'm doing my best to follow all the rules an hopefully my body does too..😊

Re: The little bugs after hysterectomy

My worst one is increase in migraines. The only other one so far is I am so freaking hot on and off at night I keep putting on and taking off covers all night long. I don't have night sweats, I just get hot and cold. My pillow is memory foam which is hot anyway but more so now. I keep flipping it over.

From what I have read hot flashes eventually pass for most women. Why doesn't he think yours will? We get such conflicting information on everything it's a wonder any of us can decide what to do.
