post op blood transfusion

I had TAH on 02/08/05-one ovary removed due to "chocolate" cyst. I hemorrhaged while in recovery and had to be taken back to surgery due to a tear in the vaginal cuff. Blood pressure decreased, temp increased, blood count down, headaches, vomiting and finally two days later did a blood transfusion. Came home on 2/11 and on 2/14 (Happy Valentine's Day) I got this awful flu that is going around (vomiting and diarrhea). I really hope Idid not do any damage to inside sutures. Feeling much better today, but just wondering if anyone else has had a similar experience with their TAH. I have not been in too much pain lately, but have been irritable. I can't stand being stuck in the house and my house not being as clean as I would like it. I have lots of good friends and family bringing dinners and checking on me. I am feeling the love, but sick of being physically limited. Thanks for listening and thanks for all the great info on this site!

Hi Peggy,

I didn't have any complications like what you did but I wanted to send a to you! I'm sorry to hear you had to go back in from the hemorrhaging, then to have the flu once you got home...! You poor dear!

My Dr. allowed me to take short walks which really helped me not feel so confined. Just even to get the mail and breathe some fresh air really brightened my spirits. As far as the cleaning goes... I did the ostrich trick. Just didn't look! I had people bringing meals also, so I wanted those visible areas to be picked up, but otherwise just gave myself permission to let things go. Your rest is way more important than the house. Don't forget to pamper the princess

Hang in there. I hope the rest of your recovery is uneventful!!!
