Hello all I was just wondering if anybody has period type cramps? I would have doubted it myself as I have definite cramps as well as sore boobs tonight. Nothing major suppose it could have been my period right now. I dont know as I haven't been keeping tabs. My scar appears to be healing well although there is still a suspect area that wants to bleed. It is very small. It could be another blood blister. I hope not. Still experiencing swelly belly but hardly taking any paracetamol now. Still experiencing fatigue but have begun swimming again. Tummy did pull a bit but I got out before it got too bad. Enjoyed my swim though.

I've been getting the soreness and a reasonable facsimile to cramps cyclically so I chalked it up to hormonal changes. I have my ovaries so there's no reason to think the side effects would go away even if the bleeding part has. I thought the cramps were my ovaries causing twinges... I"m still a bit bugged by the thought of WHERE do the eggs go now that there's no place for their journey to end. I asked me DP and she said "its like rabbits when they get pregnant and then decide the world isn't safe for their babies... their body absorbs them." Maybe the cramps are the absorbing part....

I've noticed some cramping sometimes but I have no ovaries so is it just my body "remembering" them????? Maybe it's b/c we're all trying so hard to do our thing and our surgery reminds us that we may hurt now and then??? Good question singingmaid, where DO they go??? That would bug me like anything but I like the rabbit theory. toodles all, have a good evening

I've been having tender/sore boobs. And have dizziness with positional changes. Thought I'd go see my regular gyno and ask him but i'm so sure it's all hormonal. Would never do HRT but am eating soy products like crazy. Went to the chiropractor today and he thought things were hormonal as well.

I get some cramping on and off but it's not cyclical so I've just associated it with the healing process. It seems to be worse when I've done a lot of walking on concrete.

Singingmad, I've never heard that about rabbits before. How interesting.

The " IV machine" is called an illuminator. I work in an infant unit at a children's hospital and we use it to find the tiny veins in infants. All it does is shine a special light that makes the veins show up better. Getting the IV in place is still the same, depends on how your body is made, how hydrated you are (and we are usually a little dehydrated when we are told not to eat or drink after midnight), the skill of the person starting the IV, the size of the catheter needle used, many different factors. The illuminator is just a light though, but is very helpful when you can't even "find" a vein.

Hi ladies,
I was told that we would have "cycles" but just no bleeding. In other words, all the symptoms of an upcoming period, but then no period!! I have watched the calendar and I have had cycles for SURE! Tenderness in the breasts, slight moodiness, but no cramping. Before I know it, it's gone. I don't really know what to say about what happens to the eggs, but I love the rabbit theory and body absorbing them. Take care everyone.

CBRN - I am very curious as to how work is going for you. I am also a RN on an infant unit at a children's hospital. I am on postop day 13 now and I am having some pretty sharp cramps. When I am on my feet for a couple of hours, I have to rest, not like just 30 minutes (which is how long our lunchbreak is), but like 2 or 3 hours. I am suppose to return to work at 6 weeks. When did you return? How was it? I am really scared that it is going to be tough, but I really don't have much option. I work nights and work 12 hour shifts, 3 days in a row. Ouch! We are going through some major changes at work now, our unit is sortof downsizing and we have more staff than patients, so we are pulling a lot of nurses to other units. It will probably be my turn when I return. Just watch - my first night back I will be on an adolescent floor tugging on teenagers! Just let me know if things were well enough to work 12 hour shifts by 6 weeks. BTW - I had LAVH with 1 ovary removed for severe endometriosis and adenomyosis.
