Hysterectomy dates Mar 19-Mar 26,2007

Okay I'm still trying to catch up!
Felt a bit better today but keep getting those sharp twinges, must be the nerve endings coming back to life. Wore the swelly band this morning then went shopping this afternoon (pretty tiring) have got the band back on and it feels better.

angelic: I agree we can't take our recovery for granted, I found this week tougher than last but it is probably because I'm trying to do more.

Lenaise: The book sounds informative. I kept my ovaries and am actually not even in pre-menopause even though I'm almost 52 but my time will come so I will see if that book is available here. Do you know we are all chatting (things other than our hyst.) on another thread? Keep posting your recovery info here but join us by using quick jump/hysteriaville/club house/over & above our recovery 3/19 to 3/26.

nogreatmischief: I have just started doing this with my G.P. so that he has everything on file. Great idea! That way you don't have to explain your whole history if you are seeing different specialists. Hoping you get all the answers you are looking for.

j9mattfield: That's fantastic that you quit smoking - I think this is a great gift that you gave yourself. DH's often speak before they think - as if we're not already feeling yucky enough. I'm still hunched over like an old granny some days (what happened to for better or worse) This was like my DH calling me 2 weeks after my 1st DD was born and asking if I fit into my skinny jeans yet. What was he thinking? Great advice about moderation in everything.
I've tried the smiley icons but (it worked only once) I will try to figure this out. Weather in Canada not great (snow the last 2 days). Our 1st robin was spotted 2 weeks ago. Hope he can find those worms through all that snow.

distracted1: So sorry to hear about your aunt and you know we all grieve in different ways. I find that is those special occasions (B-days and Xmas) that trigger those fond memories. You take care now.

suzie-Q: Today is a better day - at least I got out and got my hair done. It was nice to chat with my hairdresser, took my mind off my pain.

KimberJ: I have that weak sore feeling in my abs. It is also affecting my back (heating pad great for that) It seems that DR has sown up my belly rather tightly so the rest of my belly has formed a pouch overhanging it (what a sight!) That's life eh! (just realized I hadn't used eh in any of my posts) now you really know I'm Canadian eh!!

I have to go and eat supper now. So I'll continue my story later.

the two biggest reasons I'm going back after 4 weeks are BOREDOM/DEPRESSION and $$$ I had no short term disability insurance.......I could've had 6-8 but I'm choosing the four for those reasons. I'm bored half out of my mind!!!

Jazzyfromnj: I saw you wondering about what takes up the space left when they take out the various parts. I wondered too and asked my dr. She said that in the overall scheme of things the uterus is small, and the intestines just kind of shift around a bit and take up a little more room. Now I can't say if that is just a really simplified version or what, but thats what she told.

Me again,

Rabbit757: My post-op is only May 1st so hopefully I will be more healed by then (hate that pelvic exam) and DH said he wouldn't touch me with a 10 foot pole. He meant this in a supportive way, afraid he will do more damage than good. In too much pain right now to even think about it.

Lenaise: Ignorance comes in all forms - it's amazing how everyone is suddenly a doctor. One of my co-workers had undergone extensive chemo for breast cancer and the week she finished her last treatment the insurance was harassing her to go back to work. Can you believe that?

clinpic (becky): Sorry you had a bad night. I can't imagine what it must be like to have hot flashes and other such things on top of the TVH.

miette: I see your DR is as sensitive as some of our DH's. Who is calling immature? No one can tell you how to feel.

Jpgurl and distracted1: All this talk about missing organs made me think about what the sisters (nurses in the UK) told my mum when my twin brother and I were born. (I guess I should post this on the other site but too late) Anyway, outside the hospital was the most beautiful vegetable garden you could ever imagine. My mum commented particular on the giant tomatoes. She was told that they routinely put the afterbirth as fertilizer for the tomatoes that's why they were so nice. Composting long before it became fashionable. Hope you all are not too grossed out by this story.

georgiascuba23: I agree about the plastic wrap but at least my clothes don't get wet.

distracted1: I have only lost 1 strip so far but then I dry them with hair dryer after my shower. 4 weeks can be normal for them to fall off according to some of the response I got.

jorobbo: We also have universal health care in Canada and although there are a lot of weaknesses (particularly for cancer treatment) it is still a pretty good system. The hospital where I had my TAH is part of the McGill University Health Center and is specialized in obgyn. I also stayed in 5 days. Here the standard is 8 weeks for a TAH but my friend took 11 (she wasn't ready to go back before then). Thanks for your input.

miette: I hope my story above about afterbirth doesn't upset you.

sinsjen: I hope you're feeling better soon.

tc231: Wishing you a happy and healthy return to work. We can take things for granted when we have insurance.

See ya!

It is so nice to be 3 weeks out. I feel a whole lot better than before surgery, even with all the problems. I went cold turkey, too, with no HRT! Anybody else doing it? The hot flashes were killers, but I've learned how to handle them at night.

Hope everyone here has a wonderfully restful weekend. I will. We're gonna have LOTS of rain and then some SNOW Sunday night into Monday. I work at school and it would be bad if they had to call it off in April due to snow!!!!!

It's three weeks for me also(3/22/07), and I'm not taking anything either. My hot flashes are not too bad at all sometimes I think it's just because the weather is getting hotter here in Florida. My Dpctor asked if I wanted anything and I sais that I think I'll see how it goes and will call if things get too bad. Crossing my fingers hoping that this is as bad as it gets.
