12 days postop

Hello everyone. I had my TAH March first and was discharged March 4. Everything went fine. I am recuperating well, I suppose.

I was reading some posts and was worried about what I am doing or not doing. I really do not know if I am sitting too much, laying too much or doing too much. I have washed a few dishes, I have picked up a few things but other than that, I walk around the house, watch TV and lie down.

Mom and dad have been great coming over everyday. Mom stayed with me four days and has cleaned my house and made my meals.

I may have a UTI, took a culture and sensitivity test and waiting for results probably Monday. Going to pee every 2-2 1/2 hours, a little pain more like inside the belly not burning, like along the belly button down, anyone else had this?

I went out to eat once with a girlfriend after going to the hospital to take the urinalysis and then came home. It was nice.

I have to get up now, as I dont want to sit too long at this computer.

Thank God this is over. God bless all pre and post hystersisters.

Here's a link to the Checkpoints for you to refer to with regards to your activity. I felt better if I increased my walking a little each day and I *felt* better if I did my hair & make-up, etc. (Then I'd have to rest again.) It sounds like you have some wonderful support at home and are doing what you should.

Good luck with your UTI symptoms. I hope that's better soon.
Take things easy and continue to pace yourself.

Best wishes & hugs,
