Had my 5 wk post op today. I cant even begin to express the frustration i feel to anyone that would understand. So..... Here it goes, Sisters!!!
Upon vaj exam he says " theres so much "stuff" in there i cant even see the top of the vaj. Im gonna have to clean out all that blood/brown discharge before i can see how you're healing".
Unpleasant and uncomfortable but did it. Says im still "closed" but only for the fact that he used a new kind of stitching w/"barbs" that kept it intact. Says im not even close to be healed up and intercourse is not even close, either.
He says he has never examined someone at 5 wks w/ this much blood still present. Well, of course!!!!!!!
Im pretty much on complete "rest" for the next 3 wks. No long car rides, no elliptical, no long walks, no intercourse, no lifting etc. Pretty much what my entire day... Every day, entails.
I feel like my life has been on hold since February and i cry just thinking about "rest for three weeks". I dont E. V. E. N. like resting!!!! I dont enjoy it one bit!!!
I am registered for a class half-way across the continent on june 18. I am making a career change and will return to start school locally july 20!!
I know that three weeks is just that but..... I feel so much frustration!!!!
So!!! For now, i continue to hang out with my 50 shades of grey trilogy
