Hysterectomy dates Mar 03-Mar 10,2008

Hello ladies!! Happy belated b-days...and sorry for losses my heart goes out. XOXO..The days have come and gone and i dont even know which day it is now..i'm so excited to have a moment to sit and read and write...(although i feel like i'm learning it all over again) as many times as i have to backspace for the spell check as well, I have been packing,moving and working doubles..I dont have time to cry!! my feet are so swollen they dont look like feet, the belly is still there its getting to the point i might not be able to live without it..I agree with all on the pings,pinches,twiches,its like the little nerves i have left (cause everyone haas worked them all) their having a party..I said today each and every nerve is being stepped on and they better look out when the last one goes. I have noticed my patience have worn well hmm ok i admit i no longer possess patience, i think they removed them in surgery. Personally i think they ran away and replaced it with anger issues. I think i need anger management or meds who knows..From last weekend to this weekend i dont think there has been a thing that hasnt happened.Anyway i can go on for days as usual, i have dearly missed everyone and there was not a moment i didnt want to drop what i was doing and run to my computer.I am glad those are doing well, those who are working on it,and those who are almost there. I think to my 6 months to a year wow...Are we there yet?? LOL Have a beautiful night, i will be back to rant and rave some more..by the way i dont think my hormones are working where they are suppose to..weight gain,memory loss,crappy hair, i thought i passed on those side effects..hmm i guess read the smell print..just kidding-but i really was hoping to bypass the stuff, no such luck...waiting for the day to wear a pair of jeans..lots of hugges..

Hi folks, I guess that "6 months to normal" that Daffyquacky's doc said is the real deal. hmm..wonder why they don't tell us that going into this surgery?
Even tho I think I"m doing really well, riding almost every day, more strength every day etc. I still get bizarre little symptoms and I still have that swelling/tenderness over my pubic bone. Granted it's not as bad as it was, but it's still there and it ain't just fat!!! There's still plenty of that above even tho I work the old abs every day..I guess I should admit that I was NOT a bikini model BEFORE the surgery so why would removing less that 3 pounds make a difference???
Rachel...I think my patience was removed too! In class, and I have a different bunch of kids every day of the week, I find that I'm saying "How many times do I have to give the same direction?" more and more and more. I have little patience for kids who can't listen the first 5 times I give the directions! And my students are identified as gifted and talented..they have absolutely NO reason, NO learning difficulties, NO excuse for not listening or 'getting it" the first few times!
So..that's where I am..ready to be 100% recovered and that's still a few months away. Ready to be on summer break except that I agreed to teach some summer enrichment courses...duh. And,,.oh forgive me...ready to be a normal pooper!!! hugs to all Joan

Hello to all! JewJew, I hope you're feeling better. We all have days when it all seems so hard. I hope you were just having a bad day and that today is better.
If anyone told be that I still wouldn't be 100% by the end of May, I wouldn't have believed it. I'm getting there, for sure. Able to do most of my yard work and gardening. My stamina is getting stronger, too. I've also noticed that my typing is getting better, so maybe my brain is starting to recover a bit. My lower abdomen still swells every evening, however. The bladder issues are getting a little better, but no where near normal. I don't know whether or not to keep the urologist appt. I have at the end of the month. I'll keep it open for now. Overall, I'm feeling more and more like my old self (you'll notice I didn't say normal!). I can't wait to get out and try to golf. I think I'll get a cart the first time and see how it goes. I usually walk the course & that's part of the enjoyment for me. We golf on a beautiful course that overlooks the Straits of Mackinac and the Mackinac Bridge. Breathtaking!
I hope everyone enjoys their week-end and has a healthy upcoming week!

Thanx callie44, sorry about your losses, seems somehow we manage to get through it. I am going to start using Vagifem topical because of the atrophy and rectocele to see if that helps.
JewJew, I am having BM issues still also, the size and shape are far from what they were before and always have the feeling that something is stuck right at the end. Wondering if i have a gastro issue or if the rectocele is the problem. So tired of calling and going to the doctor. Still just not feeling "healthy". Maybe it is depression and the fact that I never really got the chance to "lay around" and heal.
Thanx sis's

Poor Rachel..I go back and forth between spitting coffee on my screen because you are seeing humor in all this to almost crying for you. It's trite as heck, but...gee...things have to get better for you after all this, doncha think?
The pooping thing is really a pain..literally. And I still have to have a colonoscopy...egads..another 6 months of getting back to normal?

love these messages

First of all let me just say that I love you all and feel sort of a sistership with you having had my surgery on March 4 and we are all in the same hormonal boat.

I too am having these annoying twitchy muscular pains in my groin area, and right on the pubic bone...if I push in on those areas, ouchy! But...I am doing so much more now, like all of you. Housework, cooking, lots of walking (and at a faster pace now, so I don't look like a hunched over old man), stretching, yoga poses, and I started my beloved swimming three weeks ago. Still no flip turns (I'm probably being overly cautious and big baby but the thought of twisting something out of whack as I do a flip turn in the pool makes me scared), but I did manage two whole laps of butterfly this morning. First lap, ok, second lap, ouch! What was that! My groin! Still, instead of getting out, I kept swimming at an easy pace for another 30 minutes. I just didn't want to stop. I can swim through pain; I'm an athlete. ;-)

I hate that I can't wear my skinny jeans, but then, they were skin tight before surgery. I should just throw them away; they are size 4s and I am crazy to think that's ever gonna happen again. I can zip them up but it HURTS on that swelled "lip" over my incision. I lost about five pounds after surgery but my weight popped right back up last week, like overnight. Arrrgh! So frustrating. I'm sure it's water weight.

Now for a personal question --- are any of you having sex problems/issues? I've tried three times with my BF and it hurt, but while he was out of town last/this week, I tried the ol' vibrator and no pain at all. SO when he comes home, I hope our tryst has a pleasant outcome.

Thank you ladies. Thanks for your hilarious stories and heartfelt emotions. This site has gotten me through it.
