Recovery Progress Reports for Hysterectomy dates Sep 28-Oct 04,2020

If your hysterectomy was between Sep 28-Oct 04,2020 this is the place to post your progress during your hysterectomy recovery.

If you have a question about your hysterectomy recovery, please start a new thread to receive answers and support for your concerns instead of including the question in your update! There is information on how to start a new thread in this link: New Here? or you can use this link: Post a New Topic in the Post-Op forum.

Post how you are doing here when you are home and well enough to sit a few minutes at your computer.

We hope you are recovering well with plenty of rest and water and a bit of walking. Don't forget to pamper the princess!




How to use the Recovery Progress Reports thread:

  • 1. This thread is for the purpose of sharing updates on your recovery as you heal from your hysterectomy.

  • 2. Generally, ONE or TWO posts on this thread per member/per day is adequate to share your daily progress and to share encouragement with your surgery week Sisters.

  • 3. Remember to start a new thread on the Post-Op message board to ask your questions.

  • 4. The Progress Report threads now begin in our special forum for all Hysterectomy Recovery Reports and will remain there for you to always find your discussion.
  • 5. Remember all the love and support you got here as a pre-op member? Now it's YOUR turn to give back to the women in the Pre-Op Hysterectomy Support forum. Extend your hand and your hugs in replies to our pre-op ladies in waiting. This will complete our circle of women helping women!
  • 6. You can also share support and experiences with post-op members in all phases of recovery in the Post-Op Hysterectomy Support forum by replying on the new threads they create.

Recovery Progress Reports for Hysterectomy dates Sep 28-Oct 04,2020

Surgery is done... I'm 7 hours post op - very tender and bloated but managed well with the pain medication, so far no shoulder gas pains ...just abdominal - i have the deep vein thrombosis space boots on (as i like to call them) along with the compression stockings, i have an IV with fluids and an oxygen mask (the little ones that go up your nose)
I missed dinner by the time i got to my room so had a sandwich, coffee and a custard, suprisingly feeling ok at this moment.... waking up from surgery was hard as my eyes were very sore,
Its 10.30pm in Sydney so im off for some rest but good luck my hyster sisters !!! You've got this xxxx

Re: Recovery Progress Reports for Hysterectomy dates Sep 28-Oct 04,2020

Welcome to The Other Side, Princesses!

I am your Sunshine Sister (host), and I will be posting most every day during your initial recovery, which is usually 4-8 weeks. I will read each of your messages. If you have anything you want me to definitely reply to, just put my name with your question. You've got this, ladies!

This is your Recovery Thread, where you’ll be able to share your progress and laugh and cry together as you support one another along the way. I'll be walking alongside you in your recovery journey, sharing my own experiences and pointing you to resources we have here.

Healing is your #1 priority. This was major surgery and healing takes place inside as well as outside. You’re still your doctor’s patient until you’re released, and even then, healing will continue.

Get plenty of rest, nap, and rest some more!
Drink plenty of water
Take your meds as directed (around the clock to stay ahead of the pain)
Walk as you are able (for now, from your cozy recovery spot to the bathroom or kitchen)
Listen to your genius body as it heals

There will be things you cannot and must not do at first. If your doctor hasn’t given you restrictions that you recall, ASK! My specific restrictions for the first 6 weeks were: lifting more than 10lbs, driving, flying, soaking, and nothing in the vagina.

You may experience gas, bowel issues, aches and pains, and your emotions might swing at the drop of a hankie.

And when you’re confused , it’s okay to ask questions, and we welcome you to discuss whatever is on your mind. You are not alone!

For now, rest – and rest well!

Kiki:
Gas pain can be horrible! For many it settled in their shoulders and for a few days it was their chief complaint. Some sisters find relief by wetting a hand towel and microwaving it so it's warm (but not hot) and then placing it where you are feeling the most discomfort from gas. The moist heat may help to draw the gas out. Another idea is using a moist heating pad (which can be bought at most drugstores). For intestinal gas: peppermint or ginger tea, rare Gas X and walking can be the best ways to get relief.

You are in the earliest-of-early stages, Sisters. Lots of TLC for you!

12 hours post op for me. Felt great up until a few hours ago. Now I’m having some pain on my right side and feeling some gas in my ribs on the right and up into my neck.
I’m spending the night at the hospital but cannot get comfortable in my bed. So right now I’m sitting upright in a chair with some relief.

I thought I would, but no. I’m home....I’m editing the post almost midnight here. And I’m having more discomfort. Will try and sleep in tomorrow and rest. I’ll check in and see the new posts. I also want to check out the store and buy a little something to support the site. Everyone sleep well!
