Wow! This site is good medicine isn't it? =-)
From the extremes of empathizing with someone suffering the same or worse than we are to laughing at what would otherwise be a horrible situation - this has it all!
I am just finished on my day 6 post op TAH BSO. Yesterday was my worst day! Did not sleep well the night before and had huge "swelly belly" thing going on! Did not even post here! But last night had a better sleep and felt much better today! I do notice more ease at being able to move around, especially in bed, which was the biggest challenge the first few days! I find when I get up and try to do the littlest thing I forget at first that I am recuperating from major abdominal surgery and want to do more and then it hits me....I must go and sit in my recliner rocker! So unlike me!!! But tomorrow will be one week post op! A mile stone! One week down!
I am praying for each of you that are having various problems and know that we all will bounce back from this and be the better for it!! It is great that we have this site and can be there for each other!

Feeling better today for the first time. The weather is still gloomy, rainy, and chilly though. I'm so ready for warm weather where I can get outside. The crying spell I had last night must be hormone related because I also had night sweats last night. Not sure how long it takes Lupron to get out of your system.

I think I have oral yeast and I've put a call in to my docs office, just waiting for a call. Lovely, huh?

After having a rough day yesterday, being chased back to bed by DH multiple times and paying for being up too much I was awake till 2am! I think I had insomnia even with the percocet. Today I am planning on lots and lots of sleep.

My hubby keeps telling me I am like the "Princess and the Pea" because I have a throne of pillows and keep asking him to straighten the bed covers!

I noticed you had the lavh,did they remove both ovaries? I had cysts also & crushing pain my doc decided my left ovary looked pretty good & left it.Uterus was full of adenomyosis. I havent noticed anything different hormone wise Im 41 & I already had occasional night sweats so I'm relieved.So far the only trully difficult times I have had involve bms inspite of soft foods,lots of water & walking & stool softner I can go it just takes quite a bit more effort than before,can't wait til that resolves.I have three abdominal incisions they will start to hurt if I am on my feet to long or sit up in one position to long but the pain is just a little pinchy feeling.I have been thabkful & pleasantly surprised at how well I have fealt.

I am utterly exhausted today. Yesterday i felt very good and perhaps i did too much (going to Dr checkup then to breakfast and a little walk...)
I need to study because I have a class tonight ( 1 1/2 hours of sitting UGH!)
but I will definitely have to nap sometime this afternoon.
I also have that insomnia, depsite percocet.

Doing well except for the crick in my neck from sleeping funny. Did not take the vicoden before bed so I slept better. Just took Ibuprofen. Took a v this morning though b/c of the neck and increased morning coughs.

Spoke with nurse since I am 1 week post-op and she reinforced absolutely no driving. She gave me the speel about having had major surgery even though I only have small incisions, etc. She also said to avoid stairs if I can. I told her no problem...that way I don't have to do that part of the work around the house . DH can do it.

Getting to a point of feeling much better and having to force myself to be good.

Let's see.....day 9 postop. After the traumatic day back at the doc yesterday, I really didn't expect to feel this good today.

Pain level: maybe a 5. (No pain meds necessary)
Activity level: very sleepy....still in bed. Already took one nap this morning since waking up at 6:30. But just don't feel like getting out of bed. I guess it's okay to stay put.
Today's Goal: Go downstairs and watch a little t.v. with the fam.

Tomorrow: Back to the doc for wound check, CBC, and blood count.

Hope everyone is feel one day better. For those of you having a bad day today...I pray that it gets better. We're all in this together!

Hugs to all!

Went to the Castle 3/12/2008 6:30 am

I had my surgery on the 12th, and came home on the 14th in the morning. I had a friend stay with me in the hospital, she came into town just to care for me...I could not imaging going through this without her support.

The Gas pain was incredible, and it just would not move....once it did on Monday I thought I was having some sort of out of body experience...AWESOME!

I feel great and have been trying to walk a bit, but may have over done that yesterday. Today, I feel really sore and just want to lay around.

I think my family is bored with helping me because they are leaving me to fend for myself....oh well....I was able to be pampered for a week.

I think this will change my life for the better.

I ended up with a LAVH....Great.
