I'll be at the castle..this has come about so quickly for me I haven't had time to panic. God bless this site and all the lovely women who respond to these threads.
Hope springs eternal and I am wishing my trip to the castle will begin my weight lose goals. Will stop the daily hives I have had for 3 years. Will bring my blood pressure down. And boy If I could come out of this with even a slight sliver of a memory I will be doing the HAPPY DANCE!! What surprised you about your body after surgery???

Two weeks ago at this time I was in your same place, the day before surgery. And like youve probably heard a hundred times before the waiting is the worst of it! What surprised me most about my body is when I first felt my tummy and how much flatter it was than before surgery. Good luck and God bless and see ya later on the post op side!

I was surprised that immedialey after surgery the low back pain I had experienced for quite some time due to fibroid tumors and an enlarged uterus was completely gone. Poof! I figured it would take time to get better, but really, it was gone as soon as I woke up from surgery. Forget about the morphine drip :0

I know you are looking forward to weight loss, but please do not be discouraged if you gain initially afterward. I have swelling and a good 10 lbs more on me than before. Haven't been eating the best food lately. Guess it takes time to work this out. I feel certain that once I am able to be up and about like before and eat normally this weight will melt off.

The biggest difference of all - no endless bleeding. I have had it for so long, I was actually surprised when it didn't return. After the first 12 hours or so I only had a tiny bit of discharge. YIPPEE! Really, I feel like a new woman! Steppin alot lighter than before.

Best wishes for a textbook recovery. You're almost there.

Good luck to all of you!! the sun is shining here on the other side! Even though I am only three weeks out, I have noticed that my pain is significantly less than prior to surgery. I have the usual post-op ailmenst, but that horrible uterine pain is GONE!
Thinking of all of you!
