Glad to hear all went well with your check up! (Read the other board) You go girl regarding the shopping spree......I'll need to do that soon since the company I work for (or was working for) had no dress code. We could come in jeans, sweats, etc. Their belief was a comfortable employee was a more productive one. In actuality I missed dressing up to a degree. I've always been a 'corporate gal'.

TC231 - wow, sorry to hear about the blood clot. I guess in your case the cat scan was a good thing. How would we know if that were our situation?? Keep us posted on what you find out. I'm hoping it's good news!

Seems the only thing we should be posting on the 'other side' is solely our aches, pains, BM daliances and when we can have sex again..... no chatting about family, friends, lack of sex, use of hand held shower heads to achieve the big "O", DH's being PITA's, dogs puking and albino turds....though I believe that would be okay.



Love ya's!

Paula,

My previous job was in computers, and we didn't have a dress code - could wear jeans or whatever since there were times when I'd be crawling around on the floor looking for cables. It was quite a change to get this job - everyone wears "dress up" clothes all the time. I actually like dressing up, although the lure of wearing jeans is overwhelming at times . . . . .

Hi, everyone! I think this is my first time venturing on to one of these threads. (You may or may not remember me from over on the pre-op side.)

The question has been asked as to what's allowed in these progress report and clubhouse threads. I'm not quite sure how to approach this without seeming like a wet blanket, because I'm really not that sort of person. But I'll try to explain what's hoped for as far as how the post-op threads work.

The progress report threads are for just that -- further progress reports and updates. They're not designed for to ask questions on. The reason for this isn't because we don't want you to ask questions -- it's that these threads are designed for everyone to post maybe once or twice (at the max) per day, saying how they're doing. An example might be,

"Wow! I'm feeling great -- I even got out in my garden for a little while."

That's a progress report.

But the following is not considered to be a progress report:

"Wow! I'm feeling great -- I went out in my garden. However, after I got in, I started spotting. Is this something I should worry about?"

The difference is that the last post represents a question to which the poster expects (and deserves) an answer. However -- what should happen when there's a question asked is that the should start a new post-op thread and ask the question, which opens up the possibility of getting answers from the entire (((sisterhood))) of post-op members, instead of limiting the pool of responses to other ladies who have most likely not had the same problem. In other words, if you limit your support on your post-op issues to your progress report (((sisters))), you're really short-changing yourself because the only members you'll get input from are those who had surgery during one single week.

I guess what I'm trying to say is best summarized this way:

  • To ask a question relating to your recovery, start a new thread in post-op.

  • To give support to another , respond on a thread other than the progress report.

  • To report on yourself ONLY -- ("I had a good day," "I took a 3-hour nap!", or "I went and got some staples removed") when you're just giving us info and don't need any help, respond on the recovery progress report thread.

  • To chit chat with women who had surgery at the same week as you -- ("I got my hair cut and worked in the garden," "What is your favorite movie?") Post on your clubhouse thread but we encourage you to reach beyond your week's surgery group. Peek at the Friends without Faces forum for other chat opportunties with other members. Visit the Hysteritaville section of the website for discussions about working out and fitness. Head over to the post-op forum and answer questions for other women that you can help support and provide hugs and answers.


We invite you to look through the entire website, particularly the forums, as this is why we are here. Women helping women. If everyone stayed on their one thread and never participated elsewhere, the website would cease to exist from lack of support.


to all. I hope to see you around the boards!

Good Morning..

Well, I finished my first full week of work. I did have one meeting I had to travel to, but most of it was sitting at a desk. By 3:00 yesterday, my mind and body were exhausted, so I laid down for a about 2 hours. I had hesitantly accepted an invitation to my co-workers b-day cook out last nite, since he lives about 6 miles away. This was the first time I have gone out for an evening event since the surgery. Though it was nice to see my co-workes for the first time in a month, all of the standing and sitting on a concrete pation at the end of the day was physically draining, and I could feel a lot of pressure on the vag-cuff. When I got home, I went straight to bed hoping that I would feel better in the morning. Well, its morning and I have a slight back ache and discomfort (a ticklish pain) under my left lapro incision site and around my left hip. I also have some nerve twinges around the cuff.

I have been feeling really good lately, but this was a good indicator that I am not ready for "Prime Time" just yet. I was hoping to go to the gym today, but I think I need to wait another week or so.

Have a Great Day Ladies! Its a beautiful day here in Texas!

Still having pink swiping, so to speak lol, all evening there was a stabbing sensation on right side of my incision, and my right ovary side was aching quite a bit!

Woke up today feeling a bit sore, hoping things go better today

((hugs))

Good Morning Ladies,

Feeling alright this AM, low back ache & muscle soreness. I also have a sharp burning pain when I move wrong, I think it's where they opened the Rectus Abdominus muscle. Naproxyn Sodium should get it down a bit. DH, DD little one & I are going out today, we're having an "open house" so the realtors want us out. We'll go to lunch & the book store, maybe get DD some new tennis shoes. That should be about all I can handle, I know I'll be tired, hopefully not too sore afterwards.

How is it that some of you are already exercising?? I don't get it at all!! I've read someone (forgot who) took a spinning class (I used to spin 3xper week), someone else did step aerobics. Is it because of the type of "H" you had?? I had a SAH (kept ovaries & cervix) 3 weeks post-partum on March 21. My Dr. has released me to do NADA, NOTHING, ZILCH!!! I can't even drive yet, just small amounts of walking! I guess it's kinda frustrating to know that I'm so far behind in the healing process...

The only good thing about it I suppose is that DH & DD cleaned the house yesterday, it's immaculate!!!

Gotta go & take a shower & find something that fits over the "swelly belly" & looks halfway decent.
It's actually not too bad today, I wore size 8 pants yesterday, so I guess there's hope...

Have a wonderful day 's to all.
Your Hyster Sister,
KimberJ

Well good morning all. Thought I'd say hi and see how you are doing. We've had a little rain, making some good dog mud. On top of it all, the dogs about destroyed our yard the other day. They broke a yard light fixture, emptied the bay window boxes tore open a bag of decorative rock needed for the flower bed. All in all, a typical mastiff day, haha.

So if I can go back to a tmi issue we were discussing. I think I'm thinning in the hair department "down under." Hadn't crossed my mind that I would lose those hairs until some of you mentioned it and then I noticed a thinning spot. How silly. Oh well, genetically, I've always had more than enough hair .

Nogreatmischief, how are you feeling today? I've been thinking about you.

And Paula, any word on the job and what is going on?

Rabbit, KimberJ and Angie, thanks for the health updates. I'm glad to read things are improving for you even if theres still some "pink" and swelly. Kimber, I'm impressed with the exercizers in this group as well. Way too movitated, I think (heehee).

Distracted 1, glad to see you were back with an update yesterday .

Miette, hey there. Are you ok? Is Norway in full spring bloom? Lennaise, my UK friend, how are you feeling?

And Mercey, how's the cat? Staying of the computer?

TC, sorry about the blood clot. Maybe things will begin to turn for the positive. Keep us informed.

Suzie and Jane, Hello. Keep the progress and info coming.


Alright, just woke up thinking about you all and decided I was gonna check up on the whole dang bunch of you (even though I should be keeping a list so I don't forget any of you because I barely scratched the surface). There are so many wonderful gals here, and I want to stay connected.

Lots of love to you,
Becky

Had my hysterectomy and bladder suspension done on Wednesday, 03/21/07. I'm 4 weeks, 3 days post-op. I'm still feeling bladder pain when going to the bathroom and if I sit in a hard chair I still fell heaviness in the abdominal area. So some pain is still there.

E-Mail Chick - to this site. What you describe is what I've also been experiencing, however I'm noticing that the discomfort is lessening day by day. Make sure you take the meds your doctor has prescribed - don't be a hero........as much as I hate to take any kind of meds, I had to do so in order to keep up with the pain.

Today is a good day for me....no real pain.....incision seems to have simmered down after the little episode yesterday....no biggie.

Can't sleep to save my life, but with all that's going on, that hardly surprises me.

Hope everyone is having a good day! s Paula

Recovery update: Everything seems to be behaving itself. No hotflashes in the past two days, hooray! A little lower abdominal cramping last night and my ovary area seemed swollen on both sides but not in the middle. It used to do that during my cycle so doesn't really seem abnormal. Other than feeling a little tired this morning, I'm starting to feel back to my old self. I know I'll feel much better when I can get rid of the pantyliners. Even dh is starting to hate the grannies all the time.

Love to you all. Lots of hellos to you on the other thread

Becky
