Re: I wont miss

I'm 24 days post-op and I won't miss:

1. The heavy bleeding and sudden gush on certain days.
2. Not being able to wear tampons because I bled so heavily.
3. Not being able to zip up my 'period jeans' because I was so bloated.
4. The fact that I can now go on vacation with my family and KNOW that I won't have a period
5. The painful and sometimes debilitating cramps and feeling of fullness a week before and during my period.
6. Migraines ('nuf said)
7. Extreme exhaustion and insomnia.

I'm so grateful for this forum, because I know that I've been slightly whiny on occasion, but this has reminded me of the blessings that this hysterectomy has given me!

Thanks ladies and TONS of hugs!

Re: I wont miss

I haven't had my surgery yet but, I know what I won't miss:
-the between period spotting
-the horribly heavy bleeding during my period
-the cramps so bad that I can't function
-getting up several times through the night because I've leaked.
-the big clots during my period
-walking around feeling like my uterus is going to fall out of my stomach
-and not having sex because I feel like crap
I'm so looking forward to it. I won't miss any of it!

I won't miss not being able to go to the beach on my days off of work! It would always happen, when I would get the time too go to the beach, Aunt Flo would come for her visit. I WON'T MISS HER EITHER!!!!!!!

Re: I wont miss

I won't miss ruining another cute pair of panties... Needing new sheets every few months... Pain in my lower back that never seemed to ease up... & wondering when it's going to sneak up on me... Also having some answers to it all feels great! There is a lot to be thankful for 😉

Re: I wont miss

I won't miss wondering if the security cameras at work caught me changing my pants and underwear in the car in the parking lot and squirting blood ALL OVER the car in the process. I was too bloody to take my things back inside to change in the bathroom!. I won't miss the blood stains on the driver's seat and passenger seat of both our cars (sunlight has faded it over time, thankfully, because there are some stains that even Oxyclean isn't enough for). I won't miss the lumpy gushes of "chicken livers" every three days for months at a time. I won't miss the IUD--either the excruciating experience of having it put in, or the excruciating experience of pushing it out in a fist-sized clot of tissue and then fishing it out of the toilet to show my Dr.

Re: I wont miss

I have to add that these are things I DON'T miss!

I don't miss having to ask my hostess if she has any dark rags to clean up the murder scene in her bathroom.

I don't miss worrying about using white guest towels when visiting. I always ended up ruining them.

I don't miss carrying baby wipes, pads, and my own personal garbage bags to dispose of all the bloody pads and wipes any time I travel.

I don't miss being afraid to have sex because of the aftermath of pain and bleeding.

Now sex is a delight...lots of fun!

Back pain, exhaustion, crankiness, brain fog, nearly GONE.

Life without my uterus is physically FABULOUS!

I'm loving my body now.

Love it!

I won't miss the black plants everyone keeps mentioning -- I don't know why, but I guess I didn't realize other women wore them for the same reason as me, lol
