I feel whiney, achey, swollen, and very weak. I can't seem to get a grip on my iron. Taking Spirulina. Eating iron rich foods. Trying to avoid iron pills because they cause the *constipation station* and I don't want to go there again!


My Doc prescribed Repliva iron pills. They had a different type of Iron and do not cause constipation and nausea.

Te Te B,

Things are much more settled down at my house now. My niece and her boyfriend have moved out, so it's nice and quiet. I think now it's the lack of hormones from not being on HRT that are starting to get me. All of a sudden I'll get this really bad hotflash. But my nephew has been sick and I've been around him alot, so I could have caught what he had.

This week I go for my week post op check up. Pap smear inclluded. I hope she gives me the ok to take a nice bubble bath. That would be so relaxing. I think there is a 6 month check up too, but I'm not sure. I'll find out this week from my dr.

Robin

TeTeB............

Yesssssssss.......I ahve had this feeling also for quite sometime........it seems the past few days it has decreased a LOT but then came back a little yesterday. I did at one point about 3 weeks ago ahve a bladder infection that only showed when they cultured the urine. I did a week of antibiotics but the GYno/Dr also told me that this is a normal feeling after surgery like this and it will calm down.

Hope this info helps.

Back to work

I went back to work yesterday at the library for 1/2 day to run a book discussion group. I had the room set up and the coffee pot and other heavy stuff moved for me. I basically sat, talked and ate and then went home and slept. My stomach hurt sooo much afterwards- that horrid heavy cramping feeling, that I was sure I'd make it home. Today is better, still a larger swell belly than Friday but at least not as painful as yesterday. Am supposed to show up for work tomorrow (I've warned everyone it will be part time at least thru next week) but I'm dreading it. My next Dr.'s appt is Tuesday and I'm tempted to ask for another week or two off, but do feel that I should go at least a bit this coming week.

Good luck to all who are facing work in the next week or so.

I was feeling pretty good but I guess I'm not ready for planting flowers yet. Today I have a sharp pain in my right hip area. Wonder what adhesions feel like? My DR appointment is on the 8th. I am scheduled to get my restrictions lifted then. Five weeks ago, I never thought I would be doing this good.

Ugh~ I'm soooooooooooooooooo tired. I sang at church this morning and then sang afterwards for a special outdoor church function. I sat on my catookas on a stool. I can't believe how something so simple could drain so much energy so quickly! I feel pretty weak right now. SOOOOOO glad to be home and resting in my comfy clothes on the recliner! Don't get me wrong, I am THRILLED to be back singing but................


My incision has been vleeding from the area that has not yet healed. It bleeds and it oozes infection. It's pretty sore. Has anyone had this problem of not healing well with their incision?

I had to take a pain pill so I am waiting for it to kick in. Then I think a nap is happening!

How's everyone else doing today?

Sista-Chick,

Call your doctor first thing in the morning. You may have an infection that needs antibiotics. Don't wait. I ended up in the emergency room with an abscess- and I had no symptoms at all before my inscision broke open. It had to be packed with gauze twice a day for several weeks. You don't want to become septic. It may be nothing, but don't take a chance. I don't want to scare you, but I would hate to see you in the position I was in either. Please, please, please call your doctor.

Hugs,
Tracy

Thanks Tracy!! I saw him Thursday. He said I could use a topical ointment. But it seems to be getting worse and not better. It was only oozing then and ever since it began bleeding. I guess I need to call him again and bug them. The nurse there isn't the easiest to deal with. She makes it VERY difficult to talk with the doctor!! I don't want it to get worse. :-(
