Hi all. Great Site! I had a LAVH/TNT with a bladder sling on 3/21/06. After having my period every two weeks for two years, I was absoutely done with the whole thing! I had everything removed as we have a history of ovarian cancer and all the women in my family have had hysterectomeys before 30, so having mine at 41 was a major accomplishment. I am looking for post op feedback. I had a C-Section in 88, and I just don't feel like I had a major surgery. Dangerous, I know. I just have cramping, and get tired easy. Any after info would be appreciated. Like when you knew it was right to start HRT, exercise, going back to work, sex, etc. I am taking a month off, the boredom is about to kill me though.......... Thanks from Vegas......
I just had a LAVH last monday and I am going crazy to do something as well. But I am waiting on my post op visit with my DR. before starting anything. Even lifting my kids, which I feel I could do now. That would be my advice anyways.
I had mine on March 1st. I went back to see DR. on March 10th and he said I could do light housework but still no heavy lifting anything over 25 lbs. I don't lift anything if it is over 20 I just don't want to take a chance. I went back to work at 2 and 1/2 weeks but today I hit a wall. I had to come home this afternoon and rest. I do sit mostly at work but I guess I have just been a little to busy. I hadn't any crying feeling and today I could have but I came home relaxed and took a nap which was so nice. So I know you all are feeling good and I am so glad cause I know I was climbing the walls too. But be sure and take it easy still too.
i started my hrt right away, but i was on it b4 i had my tah/bso due to sever pms (climara patch 0.05mg two weeks out of the month), my doc slapped the climara 0.1 mg patch on me in the recovery room.
i'm two weeks post op and still am very sore and extremely tired but my emotional state is doing well, other than being totally frustrated about not being able to do much. today has been rough from being cranky because of it, but i know things will get better, so i must be patient.
It is great that you are feeling well! But as you know, you did just have a major surgery along with repairs. The best person to answer your questions is your dr. Only s/he knows exactly what work was done for hyst and repairs. Best wishes to you for your recovery!
