3 mo. post op-Brain Dead!

I am 3 mo. post op and still fighting the tiredness but not as much. Still have the swelly belly especially if I lift or over do. Still can't exersice without really blowing up and hurting. I am dealing OK with all of this since I have been able to better understand reading everyones stories on here. But one thing I am not adjusting to is my inability to "THINK". I mean I am so absent minded, forgetful, just overall not with it. I am a professional woman in sales and feel like a dizzy brained "blonde" (sorry blondes, I am one too). What is with this???

I am also a member and don't know why even months later I still have the brain fog. I am just trying to adjust things to help, like I have sticky notes everywhere to remind me of things and lists out the wazoo!

Marian, do you have a list of your lists? Hubby tells me that I need one but would probably lose it too!!

I am glad to read this post because I am three months post-op today and while I have never felt this good I still have brain fog. I thought it would be gone by now.

I'm just grateful I was a ditzy blond before all this. I don't think I'll ever notice a difference.

I am glad to read these posts. It's been a year and I still live by notes, lists and reminders from my students! I'm a teacher and when something needs to happen, or is upcoming, I tell two or three students and have them remind me.
I messed up big time a couple of weeks ago and missed my daughters school deadline to order her cap, gown and accessories for graduation! Sheesh, frustrating. Hang in there ladies!
If anyone reads something or hears something that will help with this brain fog issue, please post it here.
Happy New Year ~

I'm thinking due to hysterectomy we get to rush into the wonder of "Senior Moments" early. I'm going to embrace mine - it's better than stressing about them.
