Hi everyone. I am 8 days, post op and feeling pretty good for the most part. I still have the swelly belly and discomfort in the bowels. Surgery was Tues, 2/20/07 and I came home on Thurs morning, 2/22/07.. Saturday night was the worse ! The gas did not want to move nor did anything else.... It finally gave way about 10 PM. What a relief. Met with my Doc for follow up on Monday. She said everything was good.. Path report showed hyperplasia in the uterus (following ablation May 05).. She wanted to do another endobiopsy, but since nothing showed up on it the first time, what was the use? Plus, scar tissue had built up and the door was shut. Much like trying to push an earring into a closed hole... NOT !! So, we opted for the hysterectomy to take care of the fibroids and ovarian cyst. Glad I did, especially since the path report showed hyperplasia, again...Am trying to work a little, from home.. Still sore, but probably doing more than I should. I wish I knew how to not push myself..Just find it hard to be still when the pain is manageable. Wish me well and pray I get some good sense about me and REST ... My best to all of you, as well......

Well, I'm one week out now and my heinie is very tired of resting! The rest of my body...especially my tummy and pelvis are very happy to lounge around all day, but my poor tookus is so mad at me from all the sitting!!! Not sure my tailbone will ever forgive me! I can only lay down for so long because my neck starts hurting, so I'm in a pickle here!

I'm starting to be able to wean myself off the narcs which is good...although I did have to take some today after my first venture out of the house....went car shopping...not sure how smart that was... Too much getting in and out of cars. I think I'll let hubby do that from now on.

The odd thing is, even though I have my share of pain, I can tell underneath it all that I feel better....does that make sense, or does it sound as spacey as I think it does?
Blessings and good healing to all,

Nice Twice- I was really lucky I had my room to myself. Good thing for the nurses. When your accidents happened you handled it with grace, cause you can talk about it now! I know what you mean about the "boots" one of mine broke my leg out in hives and the male nurse in training on duty that night took some soft tape and wraped the scratchy spot and it did not bother my leg again, just my nerves. Finally had to request a break, before I came undone. Just get to sleep and squeeze the leg time. The other nurse so nice she was, gave me a several hour break, and I got some sleep. But once I was able to walk around they did not bother to put them on again. Like yours my castle didnot give me a chance to sleep the first night, but the second, the nurses had other things to do, besides bug me every 1/2 hour so I did get more rest the 2nd night. Heal quick and keep up your good humor.

For all you gals out there who have been having problems with BM I recommend a natural product that was mentioned on this board from a previous member. It's a herbal stimulant laxative tea called "Smooth Move" that is manufactured by Traditional Medicinals. You should be able to find it in your local grocery store where they stock healthy food items. Manufacturer recommends you brew a cup before you go to bed and it will produce a BM in 8-12 hours. I've used it twice and have been successful both times. Prior to going to the bathroom I did experience a little abdominal cramping but it was not unbearable. Also followed another recommendation and put two large telephone yellow pages under my feet to shift the position of my colon. Seemed to help the evacuation process. Hope this helps. Regards, Debra

Luckycee... yeah, I was surprised to hear I could do stairs. But one at a time only... Dr said the reason for the limitation is because we don't have the reflex ability to catch ourselves should we slip, because of the pain and incision.

So, I put my DH in front of me going down the stairs, and behind me going up the stairs... and I go one painful step at a time, lol. But my bedroom and computer are all downstairs, and I'd go nuts without my computer... I've been medically disabled since May 2006 (lots of physical limitations), and so it's my only connection to the outside world!

Anyway... stairs are rough, so don't do them unless you have to!

lorelie2: Thank you for the herbal stimulant tea "smooth move" hint. Had TVH/BAS on 2/19 and this has been my biggest problem. Prunes, bran, lots of water, nothing has worked except for Dulcolax, which I really don't want to use!

All my stitches are internal, and I'm beginning to feel itchy on the inside, which is very weird. Still, the belly is tight because it's still a bit swollen and gassy. I'm spending my days watching TV, cruising the internet on the laptop, trying to walk around the downstairs of the house, and resting after every little thing I do. I still can't focus enough to read books, and I miss that. I hope that clears up soon. And sometimes my belly hurts when I lie down, and sometimes it hurts when I sit up...I never seem to know which way I'll be comfortable. It's only a week, so we have to be patient with ourselves, I know. It's tough to watch my DH do all the chores I normally do, while I do nothing all day. *sigh*

Hi, Dianne

My tummy feels tight with my abdominal incision. Sorta like a bunch of books are compressing the sucker. No pain, more discomfort than anything else. Keeping busy cooking light meals, taking daily walks, reading books, and watching tv or movies. I'm more active than I thought I would be fore one week post, although I miss my normal routine and going to the gym. Every so often I get a burning sensation around the incision, I'm thinking this is the incision healing internally. Using the swelly band seems to help quite a bit.
