hi! im up alittle more now! but have some questions

hello ladies! julie here i had a complete hysterectomy including my ovavries out on march 19th. i have a few questions for you hope you can help...first did any of you feel a pulling to one side when you got up? i felt so good after surgery [emotional] told my dh that i didnt feel i would need hormones but when i went to doctor i found out he gave me a shot right after surgery, does that mean i have to take hrt now? what are the pros and cons if i decide to stay on hormones ill take the patch. also my doctor said i would be out of work for 8 weeks then id go to light duty for 2 months well im the nursing field but im a cna and i lift people all day and there is no such thing is light duty on my job, will i ever be stong enough to do that job again or should i think about another job thanks to all of you who have helped me along the way. your hyster sister,julie

Hi Julie,

I'll try to answer some of your questions...

I had the pulling on one side when I got up. It lessened as time went on. Even if your doctor gave you a shot, you won't need to continue with HRT unless you wish to. I'm on Vivelle-dot and love it, but that's a personal decision. You need to read read read and talk to your doctor about it.

I went back to work at 5 1/2 weeks on light duty. I'm lucky enough to have that option. I was on light duty for 6 weeks due to a seroma. I now do my old job...no problems. I also have a job that can be very physical.

Good luck to you.
