Hysterectomy dates Mar 05-Mar 12,2007

Hello! I'm new to the site. You guys are great and very supportive. I wish that I found you sooner. I had an ab. hyst. on 3/2. I started to get a burning/stretching feeling underneath my belly button at about 2 weeks post op. My Dr. said that it was the body healing and that I was over doing it. Well, I am 4 weeks+ since surgery and I still am experiencing that sensation. It is very annoying and frustrating!! I'm trying to relax, but when will all of this end?

I might be so very wrong on this, but what I think it is is that the skin and muscles had to be pulled away in order to remove the organ thereby creating kind of a tunnel. I have had the same pain (it's getting better) and that is the only logical thing I have come up with since my pain seemed to be in a "pocket like" area from my belly button downward. Post if you find out different.

Hello Julestar!! I did find an article under <oops! link to commercial site removed per site guidelines! >. I bought a book by Sheila Martin on-line The Worried Woman's Guid to a Happy Hysterectomy. The info. is okay, but not great. This is the best site that I found!! I believe that we should all stick with it. I just wish that I found it sooner. It's called abdominal muscle fatigue. Your abdominal muscles may occasionally go into spasm (knots) or cause a burning sensation. It most likely indicates that they are not ready for even the small amount of use that you are asking of them. You will experience fatigue in other muscle groups, such as those in the back, which are working overtime to compensate for the lack of abdominal cooperation. It makes sense to me?. But I feel much better knowing that their are others, like yourself, experiencing the same sensation. It is so annoying. Thanks for the response and welcome. Good luck to you for a speedy recovery, but always remember that it takes a long time to heal. I read six months to a year to heal completely. Bless you!!) Take it slow.......

Cat D
Thanks for that info. I also have been having that burning and pulling sensation. I figured it was the muscles healing but did not stop any activities that seemed to make it worse. I thought it was part of the normal healing process but now I'll cut back again and take it a bit easier. Great info!

Hi ladies,
Today is 4 weeks post-op for me! wooohoo!! I celebrated for adding a slight run (3/4 of a mile) to my morning walk and topped it off with dancing to one of my favorite songs when I got home. I'm going to try to start back to work today (fixing a home to sell). It is pretty physical but I hired an assistant to do the lifting and difficult things. I'm going to try 5 hour a day 3 days this week and see how the body takes it. I'm anxious to get this house on the market (almost done ) and to get my "stress and fibroid" weight off. I did lose 9lbs after removing all my female equip. and other unnecessary things but now it is the old diet and exercise that I need for the next 20lbs. Anyone else trying a little more exercise?

CatD and Julestar - thanks for the info --- I have noticed that it "burns" more toward the end of the day - mornings it doesn't and on light activity days it doesn't, =--- so I guess my body is telling me to slow down!

Fionarose - I have been back to work since week 2, but there isn't much "lifting" in my job (principal). We have had great weather lately and am walking 2.5 miles in the evenings, but jogged to the car the other day when we had a spring shower and was reminded that I'd had surgery!!!!! I would like to more -- but am afraid too at this point.

So, I'm home free eh?

y...well pretty much!
Hey gals, went to the four week post-op today and doc said that the stitches weren't completely dissolved yet, so he swabbed with some orange stuff and (of course, it all came out duh) Anyway, all is well, and now the real work thus begins!
I too, forgot(how you ask) that I had surgery and ran at the kids soccer game, UGH...not good!
I am given consent to do as the body will allow w/in moderation and "gently" (yeah right)! ..
I am so pleased with this surgery and have taken off 2 more lbs(w/ shoes on and even a jacket) NO WAY..UNHEARD OF...NOT POSSIBLE!.
Does anyone know how or when the weight gain might come in? I will try to keep ahead of it, any info on this would be great!
I have felt like I am working on a cold right now, my throat is scratchy and hurts. I have been taking lots of vit c and zinc and cold md as much as will allow. So maybe this won't last long!
I am cleaning out closets "spring cleaning".. its so overdue! Anyone else?
Spring break is over and we've got projects and concerts and all the busy stuff.
Are we blessed or what? I'd say so--I know so!!!!!!!
To any girl out there getting ready for a hyster..or needing a hyster..I want to tell you-for me, I have NO REGRETS! I hope the same for you!
Missin ya'll..Come back ya hear and let us know how ya are! y ME-3d

Hey March 6th sister! No regrets for me either! I am still a bit uncomfortable at times and can't wait to have my full energy back, but that is nothing compared with the pleasure of no more 24-hour backache or daily migraines or massive blood flow or teeny bladder or any of the other reasons I had the surgery. I look forward to a future of less pain and more fun!
