I am proud of you, you are a very brave woman!!! I know what the "C" word is like, no one will ever know until they've been diagnosed with it. The first time I was speechless, I couldn't talk, I couldn't even react. My mom was with me. After the "c" word came out, all I could see were his lips moving but I wasn't listening. Finally he asked me if I had any questions (I was coming out of shock by then) and then only thing I could say was "am I going to die from this?"....this time with my appendix, I knew what my diagnosis was before they even told me, I just knew it. I still was in shock, and cried and all that, but I just knew what it was going to be. And I never realized how a full hysterectomy at 35 was going to affect me, until two weeks after the surgery and man did it hit hard. I cried for like six days. I had another "weepy day" today. I'm mourning my reproductive organs, even though I wasn't evenplanning on USING them, stupid, I know!!! How long will you be having treatment for? I read that you are nauseous? (sp??)...I'm sorry. I have been fortunate that the two cancers that I've had, I haven't had to take any treatment. At the rate I'm going, I'm sure I will at SOME point Do you work? If so, are they being supportive to you? They were where I work. I went back to work like two weeks too early because I couldn't stand sitting around my tiny apartment all alone, I was getting severely depressed! My doctor thought it would do me more harm than good to sit around doing nothing, so since I have a desk job, he cleared me to go back. Not that I'm looking for anyone to feel sorry for me or anything, but it's like since I didn't have to have treatment, it's like it never happened, and everyone is like "ohwell"....I am still having a bit of a pity party though. They had to take my ovaries because of the type of the cancer that I had. If they would have left them in and the cancer came back, the first place it would've gone to would've been my ovaries. Plus I had a 10 cm fibroid tumor in my uterus. That fibroid probably saved my life. It was pressing on a nerve causing severe back pain, which sent me to the e.r. They found the tumor completely by accident. I guess God works in mysterious ways! Please keep in touch with me. My email address is <admin note: email addresses not allowed in post.

Hi Ladies...

It has been a busy weekend. I have been reading posts before I go to bed, but I have been too tired to respond. Today, was the first full day where I have woken up and had a completely normal day doing my old routine...walking two dogs 3 miles, grocery shopping, yard work, ect, and feel, like I haven't had surgery. This is different to how I felt earlier last week when I had lifted too much and found myself in quite a bit of pain. So, I am hoping that I have established some new boundaries. I have my 6 week check-up on Thursday, so we will see if I get my "clearance" for travel outside of my zipcode and...oh yeah...sex. I am feeling much more confident about it as each day passes, but I am still a little apprehensive.

I particpated in a community yard sale this past weekend, and it was about 80 degrees each day. I don't think I drank enough water (even though i drank several bottles) because the leg that had the blood clot over a year ago, still swells up if I stand too long or if I get bloated. My leg was HUGE on Saturday morning, and I spent most of that evening in bed until I fell asleep. It looks a better now.

I also got an infection at one of my lapro sites (belly button) I didnt notice it until the other day in the shower. I have been putting Neosporin on it, and it seems to help...but it sure it itchy!

TC123...hang in there! I too am 35 and have/had no chance at either conceiving or bearing children. I get very sad when I think about the child that my husband and and I will never create together. It literally breaks my heart, and that will never go away. I am also trying to deal with people when they ask why I don't have any children. I am very open with my situation, but part of me feels so empty and abnormal. But, I have to remind myself that there is/was nothing that I could have done about the situation, and I can now focus on the positive aspects of my life like my career and possibly adoption. We all have crosses to bear, and this is mine. I will always have my sad moments as I am sure you will have yours. I was treated for PTSD after 9/11. My hubby lost his job, we lost out house, and I worked at WTC and Fresh Kills Landfill, where the debris was taken. So, I can attest to the sound, taste, feel, and smell of horrific evil things. It touched my personal and professional life on many fronts. It took me about 4 years to understand the impact of what was happening to me, and it got to the point where I couldn't function. I got help and it was the best thing I ever did. I am so glad that you are seeing a therapist and are part of this support group. It will make all the difference!

Anyway, hang in there ladies! I'll see you tomorrow.

OMG.....I go away for a few days and have four pages of posts to read. Needless to say I skimmed through them, so I'm not 100% up on what's going on, so bear with me.

Nogreat......I think it's great that you're going to a wig party. Please remain upbeat - you have such an amazing personality and that will keep you stong in the long run. I think a good part of healing is attitude.

Becky - do we have to chain you to a bedpost? Ripping down wallpaper and painting? Geesh! Sorry to hear you're not liking the color. That must stink after having put all that time and effort into it. Funny to hear your DH say his tush hurts. Misery loves company!

Well, had a nice time in Clarington, Ohio. We actually stayed in New Martinsville, WV. My BF's cousin got married. It was a 7 hour trip, and thankfully quite painless physically and traffic wise.

His mom's family is from there and owns a dairy farm. I milked my very first cow (though it's all done by machine these days) and also learned how to hook up the 'teats' onto the machine in order to extract the milk. I was like a kid at Christmas. Rode on the back of a 4 wheeler to round up 62 cows with his cousin. Laughed myself silly! Also got to feed four baby calves from a bottle. I was in heaven! Must be a country girl at heart! His uncle was getting a kick out of me and my reactions because I'm so verbal and expressive. It's hard work and I feel bad for the farmers in our world. They truly don't get the respect and support they deserve. What they get per pound for the milk they break their tails to send out is ridiculous. The average consumer really needs to be a part of that daily routine to see just what hard work it is. It's 24/7 - no breaks.

I'm feeling okay....no need for naps anymore during the day and I'm hoping my 5/2 checkup will give me the okay to exercise in and out of the bedroom. BF is going away on a 2 week business trip this Sunday, so we'll see.

Well my girls.....hope this finds you all well. Love you all and I'll chat soon!

Hi ladies!

Hope everyone is well. I'm going for my first internal on 5/3. Feel pretty darn good. No more naps during the day! Was getting a bit concerned about the need for those, but what I've learned is that you should listen to your body and in time it will no longer need as much pampering.

Still not sleeping well, though it comes and goes. I think it's gotten a bit more fitful since I've stopped sleeping so much during to day. Hoping to get the go ahead to exercise (to some degree) and get back in 'the saddle'. Six weeks is a long time to be without though BF has been amazing. He's a definite gem.

Love to all! s Paula

Good morning all!

Feeling pretty good here....yesterday I did pretty much about everything I coudn't/shouldn't do weeks previously...I carried chairs and other heavier type objects helping out with the baby shower...I was very consciencious about things, and could feel some slight pulling and tugging, but no realy pain...and I was totally pooped out by the end of the day

No "real" sex here yet...but have had the big, "O"....it was short and sweet, unlike before when it was longer and much more intense....I was expecting it to be painful too, but it was not at all...I have read that in time, thing should get back to the way it was before, at least where the "O" is concerned....if all goes well, dh and I will be exploring some "real" good sex after next week!

I am anticipating hearing the "Go" in the exercise department as well....I want to join a gym where my friend is a member and going crazy trying to get into great shape, like pre-baby shape it's been a very long tough road, and I am determined to get my body and mind back!

jazzy...my 6 week check is also this Thurs, 5/03...seems like there are a few of us that day....it'll be cool to read about everyones progress and details!

((Healing hugs)) to everyone
