7 Weeks Post Op

Hi, ladies:

You may or may not remember my post of last week when I was pretty low about the progress of my recovery. I wanted to tell everyone that I am feeling quite a bit better this week. My mood has improved, with a little less tiredness. I still have to have my 9 hours of sleep and still take a nap on weekends, but I am doing better with the fatigue. The brain fog also is lifting.

I do have a pinching pain in the cervix-lower abdomen. I also have a heavy feeling in my vag. area at times. And of course, there is the swelly belly. When I first went back to work, I was stuffing myself into my old pantyhose and suits. It was torture! I went out and bought black pants and a black skirt in the next size up. I wear them all the time now, and it is just so much more comfortable. I was depressed about it at first, but I realize if it allows me to go through the day more comfortable, it is well worth being a size 10 for a while instead of the size 8 that I fought so hard to become (weight watchers pre-hyst).

And another wonderful thing. After being released, I did what I was released to do and it was AWESOME. I mean better than before by leaps and bounds. I think the fibroid had been impairing my functioning for many years. I feel like a college girl again. Whopee!

So I would love to hear how everybody else is doing this week.

Ohhhhhhhhhh what I wouldn't give to be a size 10 (uk size lol) I'm a Uk size 24 and don't see it ever being much less.

But glad to hear you are feeling better.
