Don't forget to pamper the princess and take care of yourself!

Note: We've created a thread for you in the Recovering from Hysterectomy forum based on your hysterectomy date for you to update your progress. However, if you have a question or need for support, be sure and post your own thread to receive support replies.

Another important note: Be a part of our circle of support! Please plan to return to the pre-op forum to answer questions for our pre-op sisters! The pre-op gals need your experience to help them as they plan for their upcoming surgery.

Once you are home and settled back in, consider upgrading your membership. Learn more about it here: Upgrade Information

Re: Best Wishes to our March 07 Princesses

I am sending you and best wishes for an uneventful surgery and a speedy recovery as you head off to the hospital.

I will be joining you in the Post-Op Forum in the Recovery Progress Thread for members having surgery March 1-7, 2021. I will be there to offer support and encouragement on your recovery journey. Look for it at the top of the Post-Op Forum after your surgery.

A few things I found very useful for my initial recovery:
  • Stool softener
  • Prunes (or your go-to food to get your bowels moving)
  • Gas X
  • Peppermint tea
  • Ginger Ale (to drink flat)
  • Moist wipes rather than toilet tissue
  • Panty liners
  • Heating pad
  • Small pillow (to hold against tummy when coughing or sneezing, also protects against “pounces” from small animals!)
  • Body pillow (helps with side-sleeping)
  • Grabber tool for dropped items
  • Chapstick
  • Notepad and pen (for keeping track of medications)
  • Nutritious snack items (yogurt, bananas, granola bars, etc.)
Here are a couple of links you may find helpful:

What to Take to the Hospital A handy list of what to take (& not take!) to the hospital.

If you haven't already done so, please take a moment to complete your Member Survey. Knowing what type of hysterectomy you've had and whether you kept your ovaries helps us offer you the best support!

Deep breaths, you can do this! The nerves can be really overwhelming. Try to keep busy, clean the house, cook and freeze meals, and get outside and enjoy your family. Take quiet time for yourself, enjoy a bath and stock up on movies and books for your recovery.

Remember rule #1 is to
"Pamper the Princess"!
