hysterversary and depressed

Yesterday was my hysterversary. I've really been in 2 minds as to not only whether to post about it but also where!
I don't deny that I've been so much better within myself and the problems flo brought are a memory almost, ...... but I've had really bad lower back pain and sciatica problems ever since. I never have never had anything like this before in my life - a "bad back", yes, but not the debilitating pain that stops me from doing just the most basic things that we all so readily take for granted. I've written many posts on it in the past so won't dwell heavily on it here and this is the first post I've made in quite some time on the site. I couldn't decide where to put this post as although my on-going health issues aren't of gyn nature, I just didn't have any back pains like THIS ever in my life ...... so to my mind, it is a post op issue/health problem. I'm sorry if this is deemed wrongly placed and don't mean anything bad if I have selected the wrong forum for it.
My life has changed beyond belief. Next week I get the results of the mri scan that took 8 months of waiting for. I have to walk with a stick, have been plunged into debt, could be medically retired from my job, stand to lose my car and my home ........ the list goes on. I've had physio, chiropractic, use heat pads and take a combination of anti-inflammatories, prescribed pain-killers and anti-depressants (I ran out of humour!). I just hope the mri results show what is causing this problem - and I get my life back eventually so I can find out just how much better I am from my hyst!!
But evenso, I am so glad I had that op and will always do so no matter what. Flo' was a pain from the day she first arrived ...... she is forever banished and I don't regret that. Until I get my mri results I have hope that life will return to normal. Deep down, I know that I have to face some reality though. I'm sorry my post is long but there is sooo much in my head about every aspect of the surgery and what I deem as my post op complication.
Back pain is a pian cos no-one can see it but I ****ed well feel it!!
