So I would be having my period tomorrow (I'm 4 wks 2 days post-op) and I feel a little nauseous, maybe a little agitated, kind of like PMS and anxious. I'm not sure why I feel anxious. I should feel happy and excited that I won't be bleeding to death managing my life from my bed for a week, but I feel stressed. I wonder, too, if the nausea is physical or psychological - it's been two days now. What do you guys think of this? Does it make sense? Please comment. Thanks you!
Yes, the physical part, but not nearly as bad. I feel "yucky" at worst right now vs before the surgery... I think the problem is in my head and that's worse I don't know why I'm so anxious! The first period fell on January 20th, so maybe I'm nostalgic. I want to feel happy about this. I feel confused right now.
I never really kept track of when exactly my period would come, I just knew because of how I felt, but it was pretty regular. I think that I should have had mine last week and I have my ovaries and I think that I had the normal PMS BS, but because it was the first week after my surgery, I didn't pay a whole lot of attention as there was a lof of other post surgical stuff going on.
I think it will be weird for me next month.
Plus, I'm still having the same pain I had before, but how can I if I don't have a uterus? It is weird and frustrating!
I know how you feel. This whole 'adventure' has been so much more of a 'head game' than I would have ever imagined! Maybe you are feeling anxious during this time, expecting something to happen, getting used to the new normal? Hope you feel better.
I agree, this was so much more of a head game than I expected. I've known for YEARS that this was coming and thought I had prepared myself for it, but omg, no. I've had several other surgeries and in some ways this recovery was easier, at least physically, but emotionally no. And, my doctor never told me that eventhough I still have my ovaries, I could have hormonal issues.
I also felt 'yucky' and warm tea or apple sauce have helped me with that weird stomach sensation - not exactly nausea but not right either - yucky defines it better. I had mild breast tenderness when I was supposed to get my period plus some characteristic irritability...
Same here. I feel like I am getting over some illness rather than recovering from surgery! I feel like this web link is my thread to sanity!!! Lol my surgery was not a surprise. But this recovery has been a trip. It does feel like two steps forward and one back. But at least it is moving forward! Good luck my friend. I know it will get better. Hang in there 💗
I just "cycled" at my normal period time. Dr said it would happen. I'm ok with that now that I'm not bleeding and having amenia issues. I'm very happy that I had this surgery, glad my uterus is gone.hated wearing a tampon and felt strange when I had to wear a pad. This was the best thing that ever happened to me
