hanging in

So i'm post op day 11 and feeling better then i ever expected. The bowels finally started working 3 days ago and that made all the difference.

My energy is good, my pain is controllable and i'm sleeping great. I wonder if i should be going back to work early (at the four weeks mark) but what i'm reading from others is that new pains and fatigue may appear so i'm playing it by ear.

I think the greatest gift so far has been the "ok" to do nothing and ask for help. I'm so relaxed. I haven't had this much me time in years and i actually have patience for my kids and can appreciate them so much more since i'm not coming home after a busy work day and trying to fit cleaning, homework and all the other stuff we fill our lives with.

I appreciate this website and the great support from everyone. Thanks so much.

Happy Easter

What did your doctor suggest? For me i have to wait six weeks and the advice is nothing in the vagina. So depending on what you plan on doing with your husband it may or may not be too soon.

Good Luck.

Nothing in the vagina for six weeks I was told, not just for you to heal properly but also to reduce chances of getting an infection on a still fresh wound. You might feel okay but damage the healing incision or scar tissue.

Better safe than sorry.

My Doc said six weeks also. I watched blue colar comedy before my surgury & One of them said " Remember when the Roller Coaster breaks down they don't close the whole amusement park"!

Hey does anyone else have glued incisons. I had the LAVH and have three incisions they told me not to touch them I can shower & dry off they said the glue eventually comes off,I'm begining to wonder when this eventually happens,.. are they healed or what? cause you can see through the glue & they look the same as the day after surgury. Looks like they are coated in clear nail polish & one of them is in my belly button.

Today is a pajama day - yesterday DH took me for an appointment to get a bone density test. The nurse was so kind - when I told her I was one week post op she treated me like I was delicate crystal - I was honoured. Lessened up on the pain meds, however sleeping last night was an old story, perhaps the outing and extra movement I ended up sleeping on propped up pillows like the first few nights. Finally took a pain med at 6:00am. Taking it slow today. I realize I will need to take pain meds if I need them. I am no superworman.

So much for my masterplan of recovering in bed from my outing yesterday. HA! Ba-humbug Murphy.

G'day ladies! I can finally get in my bed and go to sleep. DH got my the fam a big screen TV and moved our old one to our room before I got home from the hospital. Nice but Satelite co came out today to redo all the receivers etc...upgrade to HD. They were here from 8AM till 1:05PM.................sorry that was me dozing off. I will probably see you all 11pm tonight.

Hope everyone is recovering well today.
