Hysterectomy dates May 14-May 21,2007

My work is sitting at a desk doing payrolls, answering phones, etc. It's a family business so every person counts. When i don't come in, the work doesn't get done. I was in work for a while 1 week post surg doing the payroll.... gotta do what you gotta do. i also leave when i'm done and go home to rest, so it's not like a regular 9-5 work.... then, i'd never make it. bought father's day presents on-line for my kids' dad, my father is getting skimped this year.... but really... what do you get an 80 y/o man that has EVERYTHING!!!! how many more pictures of my kids does he need sitting on his desk in the office? (yes he too works f/t at 80 y/o)

My dad is funny, he could careless about a gift, just wants his card. And god help us if we buy a cheap one, he actually checks the back to make sure it is hallmark or carleton card. He is a riot, he is actually taking me to find something for hubby from my little guy. If my son had his way we would be buying matching water guns. Did you have full hysterectomy or partial, mine was cervix,ovary onleft and utereous. Luckily I do not have to go on HR pills, thanks god.

GOt a full hysterect.... big gapping hole left in my stomach. they had to cut about a 7inch inciscion in my abdomen because i have so much scar tissue from a whole bunch of previous surgeries in that are. Actually, each day, the area becomes less and less tender, haven't been on any pain killers for weeks now, an occasional tylenol, but that's it. just am frustrated because i can't do the things i need to do around the house. my mother helps me w/laundry (which is fine by me), but i like to do gardening and planting, etc and i sit and look at my gardens which look like crap.... killiing me!! (ok ... alittle ocd). i'm meeting w/my regular gyn tomorrow about where to go from here. hot flashes and night sweats have reduced so i'm not really looking for any estrogen stuff, i just to know what my options are and what can help me.

Chicky, don't worry. I did say I was going out to lunch today BUT I am now sitting in my chair exhausted from showering and getting ready! My friend will be driving us so if I doze off in the car, that is okay. AND, already planned that when I get home, I will be laying down for a bit. I can't imagine going back to work yet either. I was thinking I was being a wimp, but considering there are others out there feeling the same, I guess I am on track. Be good to yourself!

Did I have a stomach staple or hysterectomy

Well ladies, I couldn't do it, I had a plate of angel hair last night and now I'm paying for it big time!!!!!!!!

The not eating thing won't be a problem today though, after this pain. I'll gladly just stick to my nutrition drink.

I only weigh 140, I know I could use to loose some weight, but really this just doesn't seem like the way to do it.

Anybody else having a problem with tightness, bad pain and pressure in upper abdomen???? It's only been 2 days without BM, should I feel this bad fom that?

I had to make a little visit to the Dr today at 8 am. Yesterday I had so much pain. I had all this pressure at my rectum and the pulling stuff at my belly. Everytime I moved I wanted to burst into tears. I called him and he said to meet in his office at 8 AM if no fever. Well first thing he wants to do is what he told me NOT to do.....nothing in the va jj for 6 weeks!...I was never so scared of anything going in there before...lol He said all looks good....yeah! He thinks maybe I might have a small pocket/hematoma so tomorrow I have to have an ultrasound done, another thing in the va jj before 6 wks, my poor hubby....lol.

Two things of good news ~ no hot flashes last night and when the nurse weighed me this morning for the first time since surgery~~~ tadaaah 17 pounds lighter!!!!can you believe it! I guess them fibroids carry some weight. So when the swelly belly goes away I will be lookin good....hehe

Hope everyone has a good day

Ireale: I am so sorry that you had to have another surgery! How awful after what you've already been through. I couldn't imagine. Then going back to work! I doubt if I could stand even an hour at wrok right now, but the job canbe highly stressful at times.

It sounds like everyone is feeling better today. Isn't the two steps forward and one step back the truth? One day I'm on top of the world, the next, I feel like sleeping all day.

Help!!!! My surgery was on May 16th. I am now four weeks from that but I have these periods of depression. I don't know why. I just get so down. I couldn't even tell you what it is about. I just know that all of a sudden I don't want anyone around me, I want quiet, and I want to lay in the bed with the covers over my head. My husband leaves out of town to go to work for two weeks and after him being home for three solid weeks, I am ready for him to leave. Sorry to be so negative, but is anyone else feeling blue?

I was on this web-site that sends e-cards to people and I thought I would send one to my Dad, (in addition to a real card and present of course) and after reading some of the real mushy cards, I just starting balling. No reason. I also like to be alone, and most of the time I am, so I'm not sure what I'm going to be like in the real world once I get back out there. PROZAC! Take me away!
