Hi LadyK:
I had my surgery on Feb. 14th 2004. I am feeling great now. No problems here. I tried a hormone patch for awhile but I went back to my good old premarin and I am doing great on it. I am with you.... I do not miss those awful periods. I am glad that I had it done. Take care!

10 months post op sisters how are you doing

HI Girls,
I am about 9 months post-op and I started out great. At about 3-4 months I was doing a lot of activity, but now I am having problems again. Why would it get better and then get worse again???? About a month or so ago I started having problems..Pain, swelling, etc. and it has gradually been getting worse. The last three days I have even been having a great deal of pain. Sometimes worse than before I ever had the surgery! Very stressed about this. I have an appointment with my doc today. I am nervous and a little scared. What would cause all of this pain and swelling this far along in recovery? I am as swollen right now as when I came home from the hospital the first day! Has anybody else gone through this?

I am 11 months post op and I feel great also. I am on a very low dose of Premarin and also Effexor. I am happy not to have the heavy bleeding anymore. My belly seems to have gotten bigger the last month. I exercise at a gym and thought I was doing so good, but seems like I am gaining all in my stomach. I feel good overall though. One thing I have noticed is NO desire for sex. How are you all with this issue?

10 months post op

My surgery was 2/3/04....It's been a long tough road to feeling like "me" again. I see on this site many women say "best thing I ever did" etc....Well, I cannot ever imagine saying that. Physically I feel fine but mentally...I am still in "mourning". How can I ever be HAPPY about not having a uterus and not ever being able to have more children? I was 38 at the time of my surgery and desperately wanted another child with my "new" husband. So...perhaps one day I will be one of those who encourages others to go thru with it...but, I'm just not there yet.

10 months post op sisters how are you doing

I will be 10 months post op on tomorrow. Boy, it when by like a blur! I feel pretty good most days. I STILL have swelly belly. It comes and goes just like it would if I was actually having a period. I still have PMDD for which I am taking Sarafem but hey, at least I don't bleed. THANK THE LORD IN HEAVEN!! It's been a long, tough road to recovery but I can look back and remember all that I have gone through and smile because I'll never have to experience another horrible, dreadful period again.

One think that I have noticed is that my personality has changed, for the better. I noticed that I am much more outspoken about things that I would otherwise hold my tongue about and much more mellow about things that used to really irk me. I have done a lot of growing up in the past year and I am thankful for that.

I guess I will never have a flat stomach again so I'd just better keep buying those "pretty" panty girdles and big bloomers and be happy.

10 months post op sisters how are you doing

I am 9 months post op and felt better the first couple of months than I do now. I have pain on my right side most of the time and cramping in my pelvic area first thing in the morning when I wake up, everything is as sore as it was early in my recovry especially if my bladder is full, and when i urinate I have pain in my pelvis. I have IBS and diverticulosis which I didn't have before the hysterectomy and I have been taking advil regularly, I was off all pain meds early in my recovery. I also have been getting swelly belly more now than I did in the begining. I was supposed to see my gyn, but she will no longer be on my insurance as of Jan, so I have to wait to see what insurance we have, and who is in network, so right now I can't see a doc until my ins. changes over. Hopefully soon I will feel better again. On the positive side my sex life is alot better and my libido is very high and the orgasms are much better also.
