I am new to this. I am thankful i found you all . I ha d a LATV Dec. 17 2002 . I still have a difficult time lifting heavy objects or my 2 yr. old nephew, who weighs about 20 lbs. or so. I am at a loss to what is going on with me . I have also had a yeast infection sine my surgery that will not go away fdespite many treatments. I am taking HRt Premarin 1.25 since my surgery. I am at a loss of what to do. I want to get better. If any of my new fellow Sisters can help in the least, it will be so appreciated! I'm waiting for your replies. Thank You!!!

Hi ((((Pammi)))) and welcome to Hyster Sisters I'm so sorry that you've found us because you're having long-lasting issues.

One thing that I've learned from the years I've been posting on this wonderful site is that recovery from this surgery can take as long as a full year. Usually, discomfort, fatigue and the dreaded swelly belly are all signs that you are doing too much too soon.

However, any long-lasting or new pains should be mentionned to your doctor. Especially since you've been dealing with this recurring yeast infection.

Since you are on HRT, some of your symptoms could be due to hormonal unbalance. You might find some very interesting and valuable information on our sister site The Hormone Jungle as well as on the The Hormone Jungle Message Board.

Sending lots of healing s your way. Please let us know how you're doing.

Sorry you are having troubles.
Do you have trouble lifting because of swelly belly or pain? I get swelly belly pretty much everyday still and my surgery was a few weeks after yours. Lifting something heavy will definately give me a good case of I have learned to think twice about lifting. Even as far as a year out I feel I am still healing. Hope you can get rid of the infections for good. Seems strange that antibiotics can't get rid of it. What does your DR say about that? Could it be related to the HRT? Medicine can affect us greatly. BC pills gave me serious depression and frequent migraines. I would ask my DR to start thinking like a detective or find someone who will. There has to be a reason for enduring a year of yeast infections? Do you eat a lot of sugar? Have heard that can trigger recurring yeast.
Are your infections diagnosed as yeast infections? I had infections that felt like yeast infections every month ( itchy, burning, and painful) but turned out to be a reaction to wearing pads all the time. A couple of years ago I got a terrible rash all over my body. My GP told me it was psoriasis. A dermetologist found out that I was allergic to laundry detergent. Happened all of a sudden overnight. Never had an allergy to anything before.
Lots of avenues to check on if it were me. Good luck!
