Almost 5wks. post op and feel great

It's been almost 5wks since my hyst and I feel better than I have felt in 7 years. My sexual desire is very high right now , I wish I had the green light. My desire before the surgery was very low due to pain and discomfort. I am a little nervous about the first time though. I think I may have overdone it today, I'm a little sore. I keep forgetting that just because I feel better, that doesn't mean I can clean my house or do the normal things I did before my surgery. Is it normal for me to feel this great already?

As you mentioned everyone heals differently. I too was feeling great immediately after surgery. I did know to take it easy even though I did feel great.

Remember to take it easy. Even now at 12 weeks I am still taking it easy and careful of lifting things.

Hi Carebear2:

I felt great by 5 weeks also. In fact after surgery, I was driving in 1 week, and back to working full time in 3 weeks. I was tempted many times to not heed my doctor’s warnings thinking she was being over cautious, and didn’t realize what a fast healer I was. Lucky for me I had a lot of people around making sure I didn’t cross the line. The reason I say lucky is because I was going to sneak, and do some vacuuming the same day I ran across an article which explained why it’s important to follow the doctors instructions. Even though I felt great and was healing well, it’s what I couldn’t see inside that the doc was concerned about. Apparently, doing the wrong things can cause hemorrhaging, torn stitches, adhesions, hernias, and a myriad of other terrible consequences. After I read the article I was like...”Woooo…I guess I’ll do what the doc says, and tolerate all this rest and relaxation until I get the go ahead to do more. I feel fortunate that I didn’t have to suffer with loads of complications. Still, a fast uneventful recovery has its own frustrations as you well know. Try not to over do it. This is really just a short span of time out of a life that I hope will be long and healthy for you.

Best Wishes,

Hello 5 weekers

I had a TVH on 3.28.06 & kept ovaries. I am having some pain still in the lowest part of my abdomen. The pain has actually been there since I had my surgery but I hadn't mentioned it before, not even at my first post-op appt. For the first 3 to 4 weeks, I just thought it was a normal pain from having the surgery done. Now it is beginning to worry me because it's gone on so long and it has gotten worse. It hurts continuously no matter what I'm doing but seems to be at it's worse when I am sitting down. I am constantly pressing this spot with my hands or a pillow. I know that I haven't done anything to over do it. I was also wondering if this could be some stitches poking into something else down there. My Dr described my stitches as like "fishing line" that will take up anywhere from 60 to 90 days to dissolve.

I'm not sure what this is. I just know if I'm still feeling like this in 2wks, that I'm not going to feel up to par as far as going back to work.

Thank you sisters for the helpful advise. This will be my last week before I go back to work, so I plan on doing nothing but relaxing. I am actually anxious to get back to work and be around other people. Good luck to each of you as you recover and heal.
