I'm so sorry you're not feeling too good right now. You had an LAVH right? I know how it is when you don't have a big incision and everybody things you should be fine, but you're not fine yet... I had a TVH, nothing visible, and I remember my kids thought almost nothing had been done! Then one night they were giving me a hard time and I got bold with them (they are boys who were 8 and 12 at the time, and not particularly squeamish)... and I waited till they were in the room when I was on my computer and I nonchalantly pulled up www.pelvicfloor.com
on the screen... they started asking all kinds of questions about what they were seeing and suddenly it dawned on them that yes, mom really did have major surgery and maybe she is not feeling too hot!
There is another good site that has great photos of an LAVH and other lap gyn procedures... you can check it out by looking in our Resources forum at this thread:
Laparascopic and Laparascopically Assisted Gynecological Procedures
This technique has worked on many a hubby who thought his wife was fully recovered at two weeks and ought to be out milking the cows
or the urban equivalent.
Are you on any HRT? How is that working for you? Not being 100% healed can be stressful enough and cause you to feel tired and irritable on its own, but so can hormonal imbalance that is fairly common during the first couple of months post op. I would urge you to talk with your DR about how you are feeling both physically and emotionally.
And do be kind to yourself. Don't expect yourself to be 100% so soon after you've had major surgery. Many of us weren't, either. Things will
get better in time.
