Re: Recovery Progress Reports for Hysterectomy dates Aug 03-Aug 09,2020

Well, week 2 of recovering, I'm at a new job as a preschool teacher. I'm on my feet most of the day, but do take a chair with me to sit around the school. I don't notice much pain at all, I just have been physically drained and most nights fall asleep before 8pm for the next day. (no belly binder needed)
I did keep one ovary and I'm going through this week as if I were on my period with emotions. Is that normal? will it still be like going through a monthly cycle and having mood swings? Hard time going to sleep tonight with unwanted anxiety and sad/depressing episodes of crying. I have no reason to cry, but I get this way when it's PMS. Just trying to stick it out and hope it goes away in a few days.

s0ng,

The emotional swing can be caused by hormones fluctuations do to disruption of blood flow to that ovary because of surgery. Some say they just go to sleep for a while. It usually only takes a few weeks to get back on track. Also your body will get used to having less hormone.

So glad to hear you are being able do your job and get back to some normal. Good luck in your new job and have fun with the kids. Your body must heal well and be in good condition. So happy for you.

Sister hugs,
Anndy

Hello!

Iím 10 days post-TVH and having a terrible time sleeping. Usually canít fall asleep until 6:00am and am lucky if I manage to sleep 5 hours. Also peeing frequently, and my bladder always feel like itís not completely empty. Still finding I need to take either Tylenol 3 or Percocet every 4-6 hours. Is this normal? Iím so exhausted and frustrated.

kristenanto,

Glad you found us. So sorry you are struggling. The sleep problems are very normal. It can take a while for the body to deal with less hormone. You didn’t mention whether you kept your ovaries. Try to nap or at least rest as much as possible during the day. You might try sleepy time tea. Think maybe you should talk to your Dr about the bladder and all issues. If your bladder is also struggling to start functioning properly UTIs can be a problem. Please keep us in the loop, we are thinking of you.

Sister Hugs,
Anndy

I'm in Wa and I started to use CBD oil for the first time. Not sure what it was all about, but it is a non-psychedelic option of hemp to keep inflammation down in the body. It has helped me in many ways with many different symptoms after my surgery and a boost of energy. If you can take narcotics, I also suggest is THC is legal in your area, don't be afraid to try TCH edibles/oil. I pop a small candy of THC for bed and it puts me right to sleep in a few hours. It doesn't wake me up after a few hours like I would taking the medication my doctor gave me as it wears out. Just fight the temptations of feeling hungry.
For the urinating issue. I find myself going to the bathroom a lot, but my bladder feels really full and when I go, it's a small amount. I was told it is normal because of having a catheter, with a couple of months it will go away. I am trying a lot of cranberry products or juice in my diet to aid with that organ. I have an over the counter UTI medication called "Uricalm" it will make. your pee looks orange/red and drink a lot of water when you take it. It helps with the sensations of having to go so much and if you have an infection, it will help clear it out. If you have a bacterial infection, it won't go away and you need antibiotics from your doctor.
I hope this helps you.

Day 11 post op and I'm feeling much better. Days 9 and 10 were a bit rough as I think I did too much somewhere. Ended up needing the oxy on both days to manage pain. Still have a twinge of pain if I reach for something. But I'm able to get up out of bed without moving as gingerly as I have over the last week and half. We'll see how the rest of the day goes.

I too have that discharge that comes and goes. It was appeared after the bleeding stopped and was gone after Sunday but then reappeared Wed and has been minimal but enough to wear a pad. I will make sure to note to my doctor during my post op visit.

Re: Recovery Progress Reports for Hysterectomy dates Aug 03-Aug 09,2020

Iím experiencing quite a bit of tingling/pins and needles feeling in my right thigh (the front/top of my leg). Iím wondering if this anyone else has had this sensation post-op. I will see my surgeon on Tuesday and ask him about it but wanted to ask here too. Thanks!

Thanks to all of you for your responses. Itís so helpful to hear othersí experiences and to know what is normal, and what may be of concern. Someone mentioned that I forgot to indicate whether I kept my ovaries - I still have one, I lost the other during endo excision surgery in 2019.

I picked up some ZZZQuil and will try that tonight. Iíve been taking 20mg of CBD gummies every day for the last few days, but I havenít noticed a difference with those. Iím hesitant to try THC products while Iím still taking opioids for pain - is that something anyone has experience with?

It seems Iíve started the uncontrollable crying phase of my recovery as of today. My hormones are all over the place! How long should I expect it to take for things to level out?

Re: Recovery Progress Reports for Hysterectomy dates Aug 03-Aug 09,2020

ladies,

mp, that tingly feeling can be normal. I have had many report it. Your will most likely be able to tell you why it is happening. Please keep us in the loop and tell us what he/she thinks.

Kristen, hope you are able to get some sleep tonight. The hormone ups and down can last for a few weeks or through this initial recovery. It is probably due to the disruption of the blood flow to that ovary. So how long depends on how fast you heal in that area.

Hope the rest of you are continuing to heal and are able to have a restful weekend with your family and friends.

Sister Hugs,
Anndy
