I gave my left overs to a woman's shelter. They were happy to get them and I was happy to be rid if them.

I was told about how my DH's best friends wife did laundry the day she was released from the hospital with her hysterectomy, and that she says I should be feeling better by now. As far as I can tell we are all different and heal at different rates. People annoy me.

Re: So, what's the dumbest thing someone has said to you @ surgery?

Well, it's also pretty easy to break a lifting restriction with laundry. I had a few patients who had to stay in nursing homes longer than needed after open heart surgery if they didn't have anyone who possibly could help them because they simply couldn't do it within their limitations.

And in a way the first day is the easy day. Still on meds, still may have a bit on anesthesia drugs, and you haven't overdone it. Ask what she did the NEXT day.

Re: Uterus showers

Would it be safe to assume we will be serving Red Velvet Cake along with that blood orange punch? What kind of games are we going to play? Guess how many internal stitches I have? And guess the uterus weight?

Re: Uterus showers

Thank you all for the laughs. I have cramps so bad that I've spent most of 2 days laying down and today have pretty muc abandoned food for chocolate because I don't care. Laughing hurts but it helps SO much. I haven't even throw things or cried because I realized my meds are an hour away and I cancelled my trip up to get them b/c I didn't feel good---and I'm out. Oh well. Either tomorrow I'll feel like going up or I will be too afraid of leakage. But at least I have hyster sisters to keep me smiling. (And muscle relaxants prescribed for tension headaches and being re-purposed .

Re: Uterus showers

How about blindfolding the guests and have them place a sanitary pad on a big stuffed animal. Whoever gets it the closest wins a prize. They have to use one hand and can't feel around.

Put these items on a tray that gets passed around and then removed. Whoever remembers the most of them wins. Items can be a tampon, a pad, Midol, hotpack, Pamprin, Aleve, Wipes and more. What else can you think of that does with a period?
