I am 7 wks post TAH. I returned to work on Monday and I feel like a new woman. Don't get me wrong - I still get extremely tired by the end of the day. But, I feel 18 again. I am 30 years old and I feel great. My husband is so excited. I actually WANT to have sex now and my oh my if feels great. Hasn't felt like this since my first child when I was 21.

I hope everyone else has as much luck as I have!

I do have one question - Is anyone else waking up more at night?

I know what you mean about feeling great. I am 42 and haven't enjoyed sex this much is a long time -- didn't know what pain I was in!

I too wake up every night, toss and turn a lot! I've been off my meds for a few weeks, but it's still a problem.

Can't wait to see how the sex is (I have two more weeks to go before I can try), but yes, I wake up a lot at night, usually 3-4 times each night, if I am lucky. Sometimes it is night sweats that wake me, but most of the time I just wake up, look at the clock and eventually fall back to sleep.

Yes - I also wake up a lot at night, and sometimes have a hard time going to sleep in the beginning. I've always read a lot, but even that's getting old!

My problem is getting tired enough to go to sleep in the first place. I'v been staying up until about 1 am each night but sleeping in in the morning. I have to start working again next week so I am going to have to try to go to bed earlier. I do get up once per night but that's because I have to go to the bathroom and I did that before the surgery. My doctor hasn't given me the go ahead on sex until 8 weeks so I am looking forward to having some alone time with my hubby this weekend. I am a little nervous though but looking forward to it.

Can't sleep

I'm having the same problems. I have trouble falling asleep and staying asleep. I feel very sluggish during the day. I'm hoping that eventually this will go away because I like my sleep. I asked my doc about this and he told me to cut out caffeine after dinner, read before going to sleep and most of all relax. It will take your body time to recover from the surgery and for things to get back to normal.

I am 7 weeks too and feel great that must be the magic week!!!!!! like you of course I still get tired but living pain free is so great!!!! and my moods are wonderful now, and sex is actually fun again! yippppeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yes sleeping is probably the last thing to fix itself, I thought the bladder stuff was tough but the insomnia can be tough some nights are great others are bad, I hope the more I equal out so will my sleep habits.
