I am using the patches for recovery and figure I will reserach alternatives after I feel better.
Are you still suffering from hotflashes? Will I ever be able to wear a sweater again? Fall clothes are so pretty, but some times just looking at the pictures of warm clothes makes me break into a sweat!
I actually did Zoladex injections too (Lupron's nicer cousin, LOL.) I'm also on Femara to hault any estrogen that's lingering around in there. I have been having hot flashes and night sweats for months now, but they're just second nature to me. I dealt with them when I was going through chemo before too. I guess they don't bother me that much anymore. I keep this awesome little lipstick fan in my purse and whip it out when I'm burning up. Oh, and calcium seems to calm the flashes for me (and helps my bones too!)

My post op appointment is 8/15.

Though my doctor prescribed HRT Vivelle dot, I am planning on using natural supplements for menopause symptoms. It took me 4 days to really get up and about. I am not driving yet but going out, and by end of day am really tired with back pain and discomfort, take a pain pill for this. I will be back to work on 8/16. I was not given any restrictions other than no shower for 48 hours and no heavy lifting for 1 week. I will start to drive on Monday.
Ahhh, I re-read this. You had your TAH in 2003. No wonder why you're able to work so soon. I was only out for 2 weeks with my first ovary removal too.

Good luck to you!

MollyPolly - Thanks. You may be right. I cry for no reason sometimes!! I kept my ovaries and although I fought having to have this surgery for three years, until I had no other choice and then it was basically an emergency surgery. My hemoglobin got so low my brain wasn't functioning correctly (although I wonder sometimes if it ever has functioned correctly!). There were days when I had no clue what I was supposed to be doing. I even got lost a few times, because I could not remember where I was going!!! Maybe my hemoglobin is finally going up instead of down!

12 days out

Slow to join the group, I'm now 12 days out from surgery on Aug 1. Went in expecting a laparoscopic myomectomy, came out with an SAH, a beautiful t shaped incision. Pain has been low, fatigue pretty complete. Have had lots of help from friends and family. Walked around the block yesterday and plan to add a bit every day. Have learned to lie on my back and use my laptop so can work a bit every day.

Thanks! It has been so helpful to "lurk" in the background of these conversations to get a sense of other people's experiences. Many many wise women in the world!

Thank you for asking, Deneen. I'm doing better.

My daughter went to a shelter last night, so she will just be here for a few hours during the day. She says it's nice there - they just redid it and it has a nice play area for her boys and daycare and other resources. It's heartbreaking that it came to that, but at least it's some relief for everyone. I hope it will be a wake up call for her to make some better decisions!

Now, on to our own problems... lol We have been praying about it and are counting on God to show us where we should be and trying to have faith and not panic.

Just picture a movie with scenes of each of us having a good cry and getting weepy over things. It would be kind of funny. It's weird, because you know it's physical/chemical, but you still FEEL so sad or overwhelmed or whatever. I'm so glad you all are there to compare notes and support each other. Thanks!!!!!

Hi, its been interesting to read all the posts (and time consuming!) I had the TAH/BSO on 3 Aug, lots of adhesions as well. Everything is going OK, the pain is bearable - still have backache but less than before the op and can do the stairs (my house is on 3 floors) without a problem, walking OK but not far. Worst is the pains (?gas) and severe cramps still when i need to go to the loo, or even just pass gas - am taking Dulcolax and hoping it will ease soon. Last couple of days have felt very tired. I was told no driving for 4-6 weeks, do absolutely nothing for 2 weeks and then build up gradually, also try and walk for 5 minutes each day and build up gradually so that by the end of 6 weeks i can be back to the daily 40 mins i usually do with the dog. am also doing the exercises shown by the physio in hospital.

nb - a chip sandwich is two slices of bread with french fries in the middle!

Larlielloon -
Thanks for letting us know what a chip sandwich is - I guess my DD was right!
What exercises did the physio show you? I would love to know!! Basically I can't do anything for 2 weeks either and now I'm starting to see every piece of dirt in my house and it is driving me crazy!
