It's been 1 week - Any Advise?

It has been one week since my hysterectomy and I am amazed at how much pain I am still in. I'm ok as long as I am sitting, but as soon as I stand the pain hits me (I have tried several medications, but none of them help). I am also going nuts not able to do anything.

I am also struggling with HRT - my doctor prescribed the patch, but I think I would prefer natural hormones.

Any suggestions??

I had a TAH-BSO on 11-18-03. I am also one week post op. My DR prescribed premarin for me and i have had no problems. I dont know why you have alot of pain but remeber that you have just went through a major surgery. Alot of my pain is GAS pains. I take Gas-x three times a day. That is the only pain I have. Make sure you plenty of fluids and get plenty if rest. Ill be thinking of you.

Remeber that I am not a DR.

You should mention the pain to your doctor - there are many other pain medications they can suggest, in different doses. I know you have tried several but maybe your doctor will prescribe something a bit "stronger".

You might find it helpful to visit the HysterSister Forums The Hormone Jungle or The No Hormone Desert Oasis for support with hormone issues.

Follow all the rules: rest, water, short walks. Pamper yourself!
