Good days and Bad Days at Four Weeks Post -OP

Today is not one of my better days Seems like I do good one day and am down the next..... Does anyone else feel this way?? I also started spotting brown blood. I am sure it is old stuff from before, but have not had any spotting in a week. My belly went way down until this morning. I put a pair of shorts on , zipped and buttoned them and within an hour I had to undo them because of my belly. All I did yesterday was have lunch with a friend and cooked an easy dinner.. What is going on here?? I did sweep very gently this morning and wiped down the bathrooms without bending to much, but thats it! Do you think that is to much? I am almost four weeks post op, I should be able to do all of the normal stuff that I used to in two weeks right? I can't wait to start working out, work in my yard, paint my house... Not until the Dr. releases me of course. Just want to be as active as I used to be..................
Thanks for listening,

I agree. I went back to work too soon even though the sisters told me not to. I don't hurt or bleed or anything but am just plain tired some evenings. Also I wore jeans for the first time today and my belly swelled quite a bit. I came home and put on loose shorts.

Something about that darn cleaning that just gets you. I am 5 weeks post-op and wash down one little half bath my stomach is killing me. Not only that but there is pain the the vagina. What's up with that!

Hang in there Sweetie. Week 4 was the hardest week for me.

My doc's most popular advise has always been, "listen to your body."

And as for the Swelly Belly.....welcome to the club. I'm at 3 mos and STILL have it around. urgh.

Hi there Tata...You are NOT alone! I have been up and down since 2 weeks out. My doctor says it's not hormones, but I really don't believe it. Just be careful until (and really after) the doctor releases you. I don't think you can be too careful, but you can be too eager to get back to normal. You are about 1 1/2 weeks behind me, so just be aware to be careful...keep yourself busy, but not too active. It's really a fine line. I went back to work this week and worked 20 hours. That was just about right for me, but I was tired. Everyone is different so listen to your body. Good luck!

I think you're right. I had a LAVH 7 weeks ago and I have PMS and my hormones are all over the place. I kept my ovaries so I hope that'll get better as we go along. Hang in there!
