I guess I am lucky ... I hope all those with peepee woes will be feeling "relief" soon ... I know they indicated that was a possible side effect ... nothing is more uncomforable and painful. : (

When I read about these last week I asked DH to pick up some cranberry juice ... been drinking a glass/day along with lots of water. Can't believe how much I have had to go in the past 12 days.

Good luck!

Two Weeks Dr. Appt.

Hey Autis from Buckeye. We are neighbors. Did you have your hyster in Buckeye?
Just a note on cranberry juice and bladders. Cranberry juice is very irritating to an inflamed bladder and usually makes the burning and stinging worse. If you are going to drink such an acid drink, save it for when you dont have an infection. Drink more alkaline things to soothe the bladder.
Had my Dr's appt. she sent me home with Ambien to try to get some sleep. Anyone ever taken it? I have never had a sleeping pill before, I just hope I can wake up when I have to pee.
Read my biopsy report it said I had multiple adhesions in the uterine and abdominal cavity which my Doc thinks is one of the reasons I have been having spasms and pains on the right side where they had to peel the most of them off. Lots of fibroids, polyps no evidence of anything menacing. See the Doc again in two weeks, also had a hormone test to see what the pellets are doing. Had to drive to Scottsdale and this was the first time I drove constantly for 20-30 minutes and had some real severe pelvic floor spasms. Doc says this is just the cut nerves trying to heal. If they dont heal right you can get chronic pelvic floor disorder.

Chronic Pelvic Floor Disorder?????????????????? Oh, just shoot me now! Should I increase the life insurance policy??

Sammi, didn't know that about the cranberry juice. Thank you for that information. Whenever any of us had a UTI, we'd hear, "Drink cranberry juice". Guess that suggestion has changed.... But seriously - thanks. Love to hear what others know more about then I do.

I've often wondered about sleeping pills and your ability to still register, "Oh boy, gotta get up to pee" - cause that would be me. Just slap tush and put a big ole' depends on me and tuck me in tight! Let me know how it works for you, since I'm not sleeping well either. Most nights I stare at the dark ceiling and wonder when the next time I'll have to get up and pee!!!

Yes I sure know what you mean about being sleepless and getting up and peeing. Eventually your bladder gets used to dumping little bits of urine and then you almost have to retrain it to hold enough urine before it dumps. I dont know what happened with the surgery and catheter thing, but from the minute they took it out of me I had a spastic bladder and was peeing every 20 minutes. Now its about every 1-2 hours. Its not just annoying its scary. I dont want to be peeing that often for the rest of my life. I may ask for a overactive bladder pill if it isnt straightend out by 6 weeks as I am still healing.

That's how I feel, Sammi. My biggest fear was an overactive bladder or an incontinent one. I'm too young to be peeing as often as I do. My case sounds like yours exactly. And, when I do pee, at the end of the stream I feel pressure, like I haven't fully emptied out. Waiting on a urine test. But I'd go for that pill too. Why suffer?

Today was tough. I guess its one good day for a tough day. This was the first day I did not take pain meds. I'm trying so hard to deal with the pain. The pain meds seem to make me sick to my stomach and I wonder if it effects my sleep. I am up all night also. Never really done well with medications. You would think since I am only 4'11" tall and 82lbs anything will nock me out.

Crown Jewels I also feel that I am too young to be peeing every hr. My friend just had the exact same thing I had (AH) removal of Because I am only 31. Also she was driving and doing great after two weeks and I can barely walk to the bathroom. My mom told me she thinks I am having a hard time because I wasn't very active before surgery.

Hopefully tomarrow will be better. Just ready to be back to normal.

hi girls
Don't worry the first few weeks after surgey it felt very stange peeing like my tubes were sticking out hard to explain anyway it lessens as time goes by just had my six week check up and asked about the peeing and becoming incontinent (my worst fear) doctor said it takes up to 10 weeks for the nerve endings in your bladder to get back to normal your bladder is in shock mine especially since it was attached to my utereus . when they move stuff around it takes awhile for everything to fall back in place. i hope this helped you not to worry so much just think all that peeing gets rid of the water weight remember when you were in the hospital they pumped you with lots of fluids dont do what i did not drink enough because i didnt want to pee then i wound up dehydrated

gotta go to work

Thanks, Bridget!

It's good to hear from a "veteran" -- one past the 6 week mark! Thanks for checking in on us!

The bladder news is good, because though I don't get up at night, in the morning and a bit during the day, urinary elimnation is so hard for me -- it comes, but not without some tingling, pain sensation, not really enough to complain about really -- just the healing process.

I'm not driving yet. yesterday was okay -- went to Red Lobster for the Lobster fest finally, which was a great out. I'm thinking I will hold off driving until the weekend (or next week). It seems that just riding the car is hard. I have a dental appt. this afternoon. Hoping it will only be a 30 min. cleaning. I think it's important to go at your own pace and do the best you can. I just take tylenol for pain and that seems to do the trick, but I think I wait too long to take it, until I feel the pain. Still dealing with discharge, too. Hope I'm not getting adhesions.

One more day ... one more challenge! Okay - you are right about cranberries BUT I do not have any peeing woes and intend to stay that way, healthy. Sure there are some odd feelings with both eliminations but all expected due to as they put it "things being moved around" and "the healing process".

I am still spending a minimum of 2 hours walking each day ... started brushing the horses/dogs using the shedder and I think that is where I feel the tightness at each hip bone from ???

Did not call the DR for the path results ... I guess this can wait til the 6 wk checkup - they are so busy.

Today is when he said I could take the tape off the incision he put on after removing the staples (13) a week ago. A little nervous ... but all looks great - hardly a scab but there is still some swelling - we'll see.

Slept great last night ... no pain meds all day but did take a Darvocit before bed. Woke up with a headache ... I've been indulging in Rocky Road Ice Cream and I was (I guess still am) allergic to chocolate, block cheeses and oranges - they all cause intense headaches !!!

Hope all my fellow princesses are feeling well today ... beginning to get some of the life back and looking forward to happier/healthier days ahead!!
