Frustrations and questions

My last labial stitches just fell out a few days ago and I'm going on 7 weeks post op. I think I have a few more internal stitches, but doc said that if I do - they're not holding anything and ready to fall out..just haven't yet. I completely understand your frustration and I have (and still am to an extent) been there. I'm the type of person who is very independent. I'm Super-Mom/Wife. I do everything for myself and I do everything for everyone else. I can't stand not being able to do anything. It's nice to have help, but to have to ask my husband to do nearly everything....just doesn't work He's either sleeping, at work, or throws a big fit when I ask him to do something (like take some boxes downstairs). It's just SO much easier to do it myself and move on...and I haven't been able to do that in the last 6.5 weeks...I'm going nuts!

We're all here for you!

i know how it feels!!!

im now 24 days post op and feeling very frustrated with my body and lack of body!some days i am ok.some days i feel like hell and want to kill everything in sight!!yes,that sharp knife like pain is awful,especislly when you first wake and stretch in the morning without thinking!i kinda had a rough idea wat to expect as previosly had an eptopic 3yrs ago so had the same old horrible scar and frustrations!but believe me,it will get easier.the worst for me is being stuck at home,not working,feeling lost.and the female friends i had,i thought would all rally round to help and wrong i was!im in late 30's and no kids.
