Nothing against them, but it was either them or me. It was either start swinging, start balling like a baby or get out. I chose to get out. I miss my parts. I always will. I don't feel like I'm the same, because I'm not. I know I'll adjust but it hurts so much right now. The dr nurse said I could reschedule for Friday at 8, before the dr leaves for the airport. I but she understood why. thanks for listening.

I know how you feel Jenny, I feel the same. We just have to get thru this. I keep telling myself that just because I don't have my parts does not mean that I am not a woman, a mother or a sister. I am VERY much a woman. I am feeling like I don't have any maternal feelings and I just want people to leave me alone. BUT and I say that FIRMLY, I can not afford to hurt my family or my kids. They need my love and affection. Afterall, why did I get the hysterectomy?
So that I could SURVIVE Ovarian Cancer for the 2nd Time and raise my kids! They need me.

Jenny, I know you have people in your life that need you and rely on seeing your smile every day. Keep your chin up!
You have LOTS of SISTERS here to support you! K?

Jenny, It will get better. lots of and prayers for you. Take care of yourself, and remember you have lots of sisters here to listen and support you.

No Julie, you're not wierd. I'm not missing my parts either, probably because they caused so much pain before hand. In fact I thought I was the wierd one because of it. In fact I've been feeling guilty about it. hummm.

Kerri......THANKS for telling me that I'm not unusual for not missing them.......and you're right, after a 12week period and was unbearably heavy, I am NOT missing the parts....Plus the fact that it oculd have been cancer makes it even easier to have them gone.

I still have to decipher the path report......my sister is an RN and I'm waiting for her to get in town so I can have her read it.

The turtle and the hare

It's so good to hear reports at 6 weeks. Tomorrow I am cleared for everything and I am looking forward to it!

I have been back at work- this is the second full week and I get tired but everything feels soooo much better than pre-op!

I still get swelly belly but I remind myself that slow and steady wins the race. Still trying to listen to my body but now that I am back in the swing of things it's hard because I had so much boring down time.

Hang in there, my sisters!

Hi Hystersisters!

I had my 6 week check last Friday and she said if I'm still having the belly pain in 7 more weeks, she'll do a cat scan. She released me, but said to take it easy and gradual, which I've tried to do. Today, after doing laundry and stupidly giving my 4 year old a piggy-back ride (he "begged" - couldn't resist), my belly is sore and "pulling"..... learn another lesson.

I'm a bit frustrated tho.... I had days during recovery that I really wanted to "be" with my husband..... now that I'm released, however, I'm not in the mood. (???) Something wrong with me? I tried the one night and it didn't hurt, but felt strange... almost like I had no feeling at all down there..... I want that to be back to normal!! Husband has been very understanding - says "when you're ready". But I want to be ready NOW!

I'm very glad I had the surgery - my mother had a complete hysterectomy and lymph nodes for Uterine Cancer 2 days BEFORE me. They got everything for her and she doesn't need chemo or radiation!! Thank the good Lord! When I told the doctor who saw me at my 2 week check - she said I was "goin down that road" and could have ended up with that years from now. God works in mysterious ways. Bless Him.

Hope all of you are doing well and having better days.

Hey Misty,

I think we've all been doing the same or at least similar thing. I did when I got the release. Couldn't wait then the day came with the ok, and I was more interested in going to the gym than hubby. Still am. It'll happen when it's supposed to I guess, keep the faith.

WOW! Hope your mom is doing well too! Talk about the power of the Lord! Lucky for us, He only gives us things that He knows we can handle. Amazing, no chemo or anything! Kind of exciting hearing that.

Julie,

The hardest part about not missing my parts is the gals at work think I'm nuts. One even came close to tears when I told her I was going to have my surgery. I had to really work to convince her that it was a good thing and I was going to be better. Then when I did get back to work, half the ladies thought I should have been having serious issues, and freaked when I wasn't. That fed into my guilt, but I am getting over it.

TAH 8/23/07, kept just one ovary

Had my 6-week post-op yesterday. Things are healing well. Just had one stitch pop on the vaginal cuff. My doctor repaired it with silver nitrate to cauterize it. I didn't feel that at all actually. I had minor blood discharge, hardly worth mentioning. I'm just crampy today from the internal exam. Been experiencing hot flashes that seem to be getting worse. Doc gave me progesterone cream (50 mg) to apply to forearms each night. It seems to have made me nauseous and tired. However, it did help with the hot flashes. Trade one problem for a new one! Running blood work to test hormone levels to see if I need HRT.

Can't be with DH for at least 2 more weeks. He has been understanding, supportive, and wonderful. I can't vacuum either. Been cleared to ease back into things slowly, however, avoid squatting for exercise, etc. Can walk, but no crunches, etc. Lots of other exercises will work the abdominal area without harm. Can grocery shop, but have bags loaded lightly and take advantage of any carry out service to the car.

Greetings to new hyster sisters.

I had no idea that this foum existed - thank you Jesus! I had TAH 8/22 to mitigate further risk of cancer while I combat breast cancer.

Recovery for me was good (text book) however the side effects of the surgery combined with the side effects from Tamoxifen have hit me hard (day/nigh sweats + anxiety like attacks where I feel that I want to run away). Happy to say that the Dr. has agreed to prescribe Effexor and unless I've totally lost my mind I'm feeling better in just a few days.

Monday I'm back to work @ HP - wish me luck. If any of my hyster sisters experienced the same side effects please let me know.

Catherine
