i did It!

[b][size=3][font=courier new][color=darkblue]Hi- Yes i did it!
I had my Hyster on Jan 16, 2001. It was great just 2 days in the hospital with no complications! Yippie, I'm so glad I had much good advice. And I thank My Dr. For the good results. I'm healing great and have had some problems with my bowels, only because I went home and did not continue with the stool softeners...OOps!
But today I'm doing great, it is taking time to heal and to do house work...(important to get help with these for awhile!)chores and etc.... But the best advice I have is Rest, rest , rest . Drink lots of H2o and Listen to your Dr! Have a good
3 sq meals daily and don't forget the h2o!! Oh yes I said that already didn't I, but it's important! As of today I have driven my standard car and Love it it did take me till now to do this!
But It is important to heal those booboo's. I was cut for my surgrey because my vagina was too small to have surgery that way. So the other option was a belly cut about 4 inches below my bellybutton. It has healed Perfect! I had to have my Hystro done because of several fibroids on my overies. And I had many sonagrams done and they showed just 1-2 inches of the fibroid.
BUT- when removed the day of my surgery, my dr said one was the size of a small tangarine! YUCK. So it is good to have things checked thru the DR. I did have everything taken out by my choice, cervix, uterus, and overies. My periods were the worst ever with to many flowing days on and off even with, pills to control my periods there were many break thu days and my legs would just throb with pain. Tylenol and other pills didn't help....So I decided to have it all taken care of. I asked 2 different dr's questions. And made the desision on my own and did it! And I'm very Happy! I wish I had done this years ago....I have 2 healthy girls now in thier late Teens. I hope the best for them.
With all the problems with our other female family members, with cancer in cervix, uterus, I will do extra prayers for them. I was lucky I just had fibroids. And I'm GLAD I didn't wait till it got worst.
I heard they can be bad. I know of others who had them and its best to have them checked. Thanks for listening!
any questions my e-mail is [email protected]
2002 is a great year and I have a good outlook now, and even plan to loose that flabby belly now! Hehe
Best wishes to all here
