Freaking-No cervix

I did'nt realize the cervix was a gonner either..........but what you said about the packing part....I did the same thing and i get my things from Groggans...surgical supply store (tons cheaper than wal mart). If you find out how long the packing goes on pls let me know.....and a question......did both sides heal at the same rate? My left side of the incision is completly healed but the right still looks like a 2 inch peice of rare steak???

Hi Phonix ~*~

I was ready very early on, as well...just couldn't stay aWAKE long enough LOL. I am very excited about being back. I'm a Real Estate Agent, here in Ontario Canada, so this was the perfect time for me to have the surgery and heal. Things tend to pick up around March and go full tilt until next fall/winter.

I am ready!!! The "not working" part was great at first...but now I'm getting hooked on cooking/decorating shows, so it's time to get back out in the real world!!

Are you not back yet, Phonix? What is it that you do? Hang in there. I know the boredom does suck, but call your hiatus "regrouping" and it makes it sound like you're ready for something REALLY big!! (which you are...life without pain/discomfort/etc.)

*hugs*

Serinnity.....

Life without pain, Now that's a concept worth recalling. It's been awhile! I do feel alot better than before the operation. Except I have so little energy. Of corse some days are way better than others. Some days I can't sit down all day. Other days, like today, I can't seem to move.

At the same time I had to have this operation my boss told me someone gave her an offer to buy the business that she could not refuse. So in a month I'd be out of a job. In other words, I was out of a job now. (I managed and ran a "Help Secretarial and Office Supply" store.) She hadn't beem planning on selling so it came as quite a surprise to me. Not a good one! I loved my job. So I'm feeling exceptionally lost right now. I keep telling myself, "Who knows, maybe my next job I'll like even more!" But, starting over is still scary for me.

I'm very glad you are excited about going back to work. That's great! You're line of work sounds like alot of fun to me too. I'm probably going to wait a few more weeks before I start looking for another job.

Phonix ...you will get better and better with each passing day. Just hang in there, sweetie I accomplished alot today, and I seem to have more energy, the more I do. Sometimes I find when I sit around too much I have even less energy. So I'm really pushing myself to become more active. Of course, I'm not doing anything to jeopardize my healing...just a little more each day

I also had a similar experience regarding my boss selling the business. I was a newly licensed Realtor, I had been with this company for 8 1/2 years before that as office manager, then I get a call saying..."sold the business, you can either go work for the new boss...or find another company...oh, and you have 9 days to decide" LOL..I was mortified!!! But, I took a deep breath and said to myself...whoever I work for..they'll be glad to have me. I changed companies and never looked back. Sometimes change is good, and I wish you all the happiness in whatever you choose

In the meantime, take advantage of the extra healing time and pamper yourself. For me, a manicure and pedicure does the trick *wink*.

*hugs*

Sirennity, Hi!

Thanks for the encouraging words. I do believe you are right. Also right about the less you do the less energy you have. I was starting to suspect that myself. Just beginning to wonder if there was a correlation there. The first few weeks I was pretty busy and dealing fairly well mentally. Then, after reading more on this TAH situation, It sounded like I was over doing things. I want to heal well and as fast as possible. So I started sitting around alot. Getting less and less energy and depressed. The last couple days I've been out, about, busy and feeling MUCH better again.

I think I'll get a hair cut!

How is it going for you back at work! Hope you are really enjoying yourself! You are a brave lady. That's always a good thing!

Canada, my DH has two sisters who live in Canada. That's where his family is from. They love it there. I want to visit some day. (I never get outta Alaska.)

Hi again, Phonix ~*~

I am sooo glad you are feeling better, and that you're getting around a little more. I did the same as you, read the message board, thought I was overdoing it, slowed down and felt more tired. I firmly believe that as long as we keep with doc's recommendations for our recovery, our body needs a certain amount of activity to "get things going again" so to speak.

I never made it to work yesterday, because we had a blizzard here, but I'm getting ready to head in to the office shortly.

Where are DH's sisters? I do hope you can visit Canada one day. It's a lovely country


Well, I best be off...

Have a WONderful day, and Hellos to all the other sisters. Hope everyone is well and getting back to themselves again!!


*hugs*

i thought it was strange...

hi,

i was very surprised when i discovered they were going to take my cervex, too. i knew ahead of time, but it did bother me, which is funny since i think i never gave that specific part of my person a second thought before and really could have cared less...

maybe it's because it is an accessable, although somewhat mysterious part of the body. it's the one semi-external point that they hysterectomy affects.

i had everything out - ovaries, etc... i was diagnosed with endometrial cancer, stage 1a and i am deeply relieved it was caught and treated early. also this experience has propelled me to make other changes in my life to have a better life. maybe that's nuts, or maybe that's just what it took, but the big "C" got my attention and i'm going to use that in the most positive way possible.

also, yeah, i know HGTV goes off the air. stinks when we're up to see it, eh?

cheers and take care!!!

Freaking-No cervix

I knew that they were taking my cervix, and wanted to see what it would feel like after, so the last night before surgery, I checked my cervix to say "goodbye" and was absolutely shocked to find it right inside my vagina opening. I mean like 1/2 inch up. After surgery, my doctor told me that my uterus was actually falling out of my vagina (prolapsed) so to say the least, I was actually glad he took it. When I checked myself at six weeks, it took a full finger to feel the end of my vagina. What a novel concept!! I'm normal again!! (Hadn't had sex in four years so I had no idea that things were changing down there).

HGTV going off the air, NO! I checked the web page and it has programs all through Feb. Is this in local areas, or permanent? It is my fav channel most night.

No, what the other ladies are referring to is in the middle of the night, when HGTV becomes paid programming, rather than HGTV programs.
