on the road to a normal life!

Hi all!!
Had my surgery the 20th so I am 5 days PO...had a LAVH/BSO with A&P repair. My doc said what he thought was going to be an hour and a hald "piece of cake" surgery quickly spawnned into a 4 and a half hour repair job..."If it could go wrong, It did.."...apparently I had severe endometriosis, all the way up into my stomach and intestinal areas...there was a "ball" of scar tissue which took an hour to penetrate...then between the bladder wall and the uterus was a massive area of pus and infection, which had weakened the bladder wall..needless to say, when he pulled up the bladder to repair and tack it up, it tore...so he had an emergency surgical consult with the urologist. I came home with a catheter, but all felt great until this morning my back tried to "go out", I surmise from all the lying around, and being turned like a pretzel during surgery.
Ive had very little appetite, but found chicken noodle soup to be non nauseating..lol....gotta laff girls, this is history in the making!
The one department Ive been challenged in is my libido had increased so much I am miserable...and...I am single at the time, so guess following doc's orders wont be too bad a problem...right now if I had a special someone in my life, Hed be tied up and locked in! lol...but I am still grateful, as I worried It would be worse...
I have found SO MUCH useful info here!!
and I enjoy reading about things that others have gone thru..
Please continue to keep me in your prayers...

Know whatcha mean about the libido. I keep getting these sexy messages on the phone and yes, they make me hot. Since we were worried that the surgery ( TVH, bladder sling and rectocele repair on 7/13/04) might leave me me not interested, I am glad the desire is still there. The phone calls in the middle of the day are fun and WOW will he suffer when I can go all the way.

For now since I am having difficulties with the rectocle repair (swelling and lots of pain) it is nice to have something to smile about.
