Question - DiVinci TH DiVinci TH

Hi everyone!

I had the DiVinci TH on 11-30-11. It was not as easy as I thought it would be, but it was manageable. Luckily, I was able to take a month off work (retail with lifting and constant movement), which I did though I could have gone back after 3 weeks. I was able to manage my discomfort with Tylenol, as Percoset and Vicodin make me very nauseous.

The biggest challenge for me was just keeping my bowels loose and flowing! Stool softeners were my best friends! But, after 3 or so weeks, it's like I woke up and I just felt wonderful! My swelly belly was gone and, though I'd continue to have pangs of soreness or reminders that I'd had major surgery, my health just soared.

I did not realize just how much my uterus was hindering my health! I already receive bio-identical hormones so I did not have to deal with that challenge. Testosterone has made all the difference in the world to returning my vibrancy to me... I do not need Estrodiol as I still am producing it naturally. My doctor is in Palm Springs area, though I live in Ojai (near Ventura & Santa Barbara). He did a FABULOUS job!!!

Best of luck to you all! Make sure you have help lined up. REST! I can't stress that enough! You WILL walk through this and I hope, like me, be happier and in better health than you've felt in a very long time!

In gratitude for my new lease on vibrant health~
