Bloating and cramps at 3 months post-op ~ anyone else?

Recovery was good except for the fact that I got so tired of sitting at home not doing anything. I did end up with an infection a week after surgery but antibiotics took care of that. I do feel bloated and seem to have menstrual like cramps every once in awhile but not sure if that is normal since I did keep my ovaries. If any of you have experienced this or know of anyone please let me know!

I didn't keep my ovaries, but I do know that if you kept your ovaries, you still will experience the monthly hormone fluctuations. If you kept your cervix, this can cause the cervix to cramp a little and even bleed some.

Hopefully someone with some experience will be along soon to share.

This would be my week for cycle. Leg cramps & face broke out bad. Hair growing uncontrollable around chin area. Today seems to be good. This usually happens around the time. Thank God..No bleeding.
