I am so sorry that this is so hard on you right now! I had my ovaries removed at the time of my hyst so I do not know the recovery time with just ovary removal but I think 4 weeks is still early in the recovery process.
I just had adhesions removed and a hernia repair Apr 30 and I still get some pains from it. The sisters are right, everyone recovers at a different rate and it is not normal to hurt when you urinate. I also suggest that you get in touch with your Dr to see what is going on.
I know how hard it is to be thrown into menopause, as I am still suffering from terrible mightsweats and trying to find out why.
It is very hard for someone to understand what you are going through when they go by the text book recovery time and NOT everyone will heal that fast as ALL of the sisters here can tell you!! I know it feels like forever before you will feel normal again, and some of us have to accept that our bodies are not the same anymore, but we are all here for you and each other and I myself would not have made it through all of this without this site!!
I had my hyst 2 years ago and now am battling adhesions and bladder and bowel prolapse which will be surgery # 6 for me. Unfortunatly I can see future surgery for adhesions, I am very pesemistic and always prepare for the worst!!
Hang in there sweetie and know that you are definetly NOT alone!! We are all here for you and will do what ever we can to help you through this. Come and vent anytime you want and please keep us posted on what your Dr says.
's and prayers!!!
