Good Recovery

Just to let all of you know, that it is possible to have a good recovery.

I had a vag hyst just over six months ago. It was NOT a hard decision to have it done. I had to self-cath for the first couple of months post-op, but other than that I've had no major bumps in the road. My ob/gyn sent me home with an Rx for 40 Vicodin....I've still got 30 of them. No problems with my sex issues, either. My family was very helpful all the way. I went back to work full-time after three weeks. The hardest part of all of it was the 5-lb weight lifting restriction that I had for three months. I could not lift my three year old during that time. My docs have all been very fact, I ended up going to work for my urologist!

Best of luck ladies.... It doesn't all have to be bad.
