health after op

Hello sisters

hope you can help, i,m nearly 2 years post op, in feb, ive never been well since my op, i,m continually having appointments to diagnose the symptoms I have, i,m left with a monthly bleed, as I took advice and decided to keep my cervix, I have pain under my right rib, this has been diagnosed as my gall bladder being sluggish, I also have lots of back pain, muscle an nerve pain, ive recently been told I have fibromyalgia, and i,m waiting to see a back specialist.

Has anyone else been told they have fibromyalgia, please answer if you have, I feel like I get electric shocks in my muscles, also weakness in my muscles, thanks I look forward to hearing from you.

I'm sorry that you haven't been feeling well. I don't have fibromyalgia, but have seen lots of posts around here about it. You can do a search of this forum and you should find some posts on the topic to read. You can also check out the Articles and Resources section HysterSisters Resources

hi, yes i have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia about 5 months ago, which was about 9 months after my hysterectomy. I seemed to be initially doing well, took the full 12 weeks off work, had another 2 becuase i had a bug. However within 3 weeks of going back to work - demanding job and it was very stressful intense period - I was on my knees with exhaustion and pain, and things basically went downhill form there. On HRT , at first blamed that, then had loads of blood tests for all sorts of other things, all came back ok.....conclusion - fibromyalgia - which has been very hard as was so looking forward to a new lease of life after my op! I have bene off work since Sept and am now trying to go back gradually starting in a couple of weeks. I have been very fed up about this at times and have had a lot of pressure from work which has not helped. My GP is pretty good and supportive but there is a bit of me that still thinks - surely there must be something more definite than this and surely i am not going to be stuck feeling like this forever!
so - i can sympathise and like you, am not quite sure where to go form here.

I'm sorry to hear you have not felt well in such a long time. I have read many posts about women on these boards who have had fibromyalgia since their hyst. I too have many aches and pains, but have really not been diagnosed as having fibro..I think alot of mine is arthritis in various parts of my body, but all this since my hyst so I don't know. My new pain is in the joint between my thumbs and wrists..just seemed to wake up with it one day! Massage therapy is excellent for fibromyalgia. Many women who have it come to the massage therapist where I work in a chiropractic office. Our massage therapist recommends frequent massages for this and it must work because these ladies just keep coming back. One thing I have noted that really works for my aches and pains is natural progesterone cream...I didn't notice it until I ran out and my aches and pains became almost unbearable. So I think hormones have alot to do with it in my case. I hope you find things that work for you and ease your pain.
