[font=Tahoma][size=1][color=Green][left] Hi Ladies, I had my first post-op visit with my doctor today and it looks like everything is good. The only problem is there is a slight infection in my incision which I was given antibiotics for and he took a specimen to make sure it wasn't anything else. I had no clue before a couple days ago when I found this sight what to even ask him, but I had a list for him today.
Here's what I had and what they found: I had a Supracervical hysterectomy and Right Salpingo-Oophorectomy. Which means they removed my uterus and my right ovary in layman's terms.
They did find a 4.5 cm circumscribed tumor on the posterior wall. I'm beginning to believe that that was causing a lot of the back pain I've been having for the past 7 years (we thought it was from my surgery 3 years prior), since I haven't had too much pain in my back since the surgery.
I've had extreme stabbing pain on my right side and I asked him what that was all about. He explained that since they did the stitches on the inside that was the area where all the knots were and I would probably have that pain for a couple more weeks with it subsiding each day.
All the pathology came back good, no cancer. (Thank God because it cervical cancer runs in my family).
I was told I could drive if I felt up to it now but I still need to watch what I do and be careful not to overdue it. I still need help getting out the trash lol...so I will keep the help!
Thank you all so much for giving me the ability to ask my doctor questions I wouldn't have known to ask. He actually took the time to look at this website and is going to refer it to other women getting hysterectomy's done. He liked it and agreed with a lot of the DO's and DON'Ts. So do listen to your doctor and be patient. The worst, is over, I hope.
With much gratitude,
