Thanks to everyone for any great advice :-)

Just wanted to say that I am still not released for intercourse yet and this past week I was so "*****" that my breasts actually hurt and were feeling full. I said to my husband that we had to do something about it because I was in tears with the pains in my breasts. We did something about it but did not have actual intercourse because I don't want to risk anything just in case.

Not sure if that helps you out or not but that was my experience this past week.

My swelling is not as bad just depends on what I do for the day as to amount of swelling I have.
My skin above the incision has gone from numb to prickly, back to normal, and now is feeling prickly again. For me, it's the same all the way across. Today was the first time I tried wearing low underwear instead of granny panties and it was uncomfortable against my skin.

mikeyshirley-I would think the tanning if you expose your incision to it would make it tough and instead of soft and supple. I don't think it would heal as smoothly under these conditions.

I'm slowly getting back into my regular activities. I walked with my friend yesterday and found that my stamina just isn't there yet. At the end of our walk I just kept thinking "I'm almost back to the office" because my legs felt like lead weights! Overall I'm feeling pretty good.

I got a call from the doctor's office on Monday and the specimen they had taken from my incision by my belly button did indicate a staph infection so I'm on ampicillin for 7 days. So far I haven't had any "side effects" from the antibiotic.

I am on my second week back to work and have caught a cold. My energy level seems to be down a little due to the cold, The first week back to work made me very sore but it seems to be going away. I think that just moving about and getting back to a regular routine has help me some.

Checking in

Hi everyone: I am doing well except for occasional periods of tiredness. My iron level is still low but the doctor says that will take time to build back up. The hot flashesand night sweats are very uncomfortable but I admit I haven't got the prescription filled yet. I am still celebrating the feeling of relief and freedom from worry that I might bleed heavily in public or that it might be something requiring long term treatment!

This is my last week at home before going back to work. I'm trying to get some projects done at home and over did it yesterday. This morning I have a Swelly Belly which is painful when bumped. Very unusual to have this in the morning!
