My first post op exam - 4 weeks post op

Hey - went for my first post op exam, 4 weeks after surgery. The doctor confirmed what I already knew - I was healing remarkably well. The surprise was the pathology report from my surgery - TAH/BSO. In October, I went for a hysteroscopy, D & C & ablation - all three procedures were scrapped because my cervix closed up and drugs wouldn't even dilate it. Since the doctor couldn't even scope my uterus, let alone work with it, there was no telling what was going on. The hysterectomy/oopherectomy was scheduled because at the time my periods were coming twice a month with extreme pain, heavy flows, bled for 7 -10 days, and if anyone saw my post from 1-10-03, you know about the severe depression and personality/mood swings. My pathology report showed I was a hysterectomy waiting to happen. Fibroids, enlarged uterus, 3 cysts & 1 tumor ( all benign, thank you, God !) and I had a disease called adenomyosis - the cells from the uterus lining grow into the muscle of the uterus wall, and this condition worsens the joys that go along with getting your period. Now, don't get me wrong - it's never good to hear that you have medical issues but in my case hearing this was a great affirmation for me about the choice I made - not only to have the hysterectomy. but to have everything removed - uterus, tubes, ovaries and cervix. I can go back to work at the end of my 6 weeks - And I go back a changed woman - for the better. 2004 is looking better & better all the time. Now I can go update my profile here at Hystersisters.

Hi figliaesposito,

I'm glad to hear that you received such a good follow-up report from your Dr. about the fact that your recovery is progressing well !

Having a diagnosis confirmed can be comforting in providing reassurance that the right decision was made to have the surgery.

I hope that your recovery continues to go smoothly and you look forward to the New Year!

Best wishes and s
