Hysterectomy dates Sep 17-Sep 24,2007

hello all

I am contemplating one overnight trip out of town. One night in a hotel to watch my father in law run a marathon (he's 70- and in early stages of Alzheimers...amazing) Just wondering if I should go. I will be a passenger in the car. It is about a 2 hr drive. My doc has said nothing about driving. I will be at about 5 wks. I am feeling really good..emotional ups and downs seem to be worse that physical. I have some seasonal depression which seems to be rearing its ugly head already. I think made worse by no exercise..which is a really amazing preventative. Anyway..I ramble. What do all you sisters think?

I have went to my son's cross country meets the past 3 weeks, each meet has been a 45 minute drive or longer each way. There is walking and standing around involved also. He is a senior and I really want to be there for him. The first one I was pretty wiped out by the time I got home. The past two have been easier - the past Saturday's was LOTS of walking and on hills. I handled it with no problem.

Check with your doctor, a marathon is a lot longer than 4.2 miles. That is awesome that he is out there running with early stages - I him for that. Also go with how you're feeling, will you be able to rest when you need to?

A day outside has done wonders for my attitude and outlook! Plus my son was pleased I was there! He knows I am not back to myself yet.

Thanks Kell

I think I will just need opportunties to rest through the day...which is fairly long with a marathon. Listen to body...good advice. Might feel good getting out from house arrest!

cheers Jodi

It's been 5 weeks today since my surgery. I went to the doctor yesterday for my check up. She said "You can go back to work tomorrow". Well, I went back to work on the 11th. She signed my release to go back. Oh well, I survived. The first two days were awful but after that I felt pretty good.

Everything has checked out and I feel great. Still some aches and pains at times and I am exhausted at the end of the day but I am so much better. 7 days until sex .Now the count down begins!!!

Jodi- I think it would be great if you choose to go to support your f-i-l. Planning will make a difference! I strongly recommend that you bring a chair with you-- even if you have a predetermined spot to cheer your runner from there could be delays. Like the runners, you'll need to pace yourself!

I attended Parents' Day at my daughter's school on Saturday (4 weeks post-surgery). The 2 hour drive was not a problem. The walking/standing/stairs & social interactions was exhausting. During a break in the day, I napped on a bench in the chapel!

I slept all the way home & I was very tired Sunday. It was a wonderful outing & my presence was appreciated. I am sure the marathon will be a day you'll remember forever!

Good luck...

Thanks everyone. I think I'll go..and bring a camp chair to set up wherever I am. And I'll have a hotel room to crash at if need be. Feeling better already.

Glad to have you all.

Jodi,
I had a TAH/BSO on 9-17 and 2-1/2 weeks later made a 9 hour trip to a neice's wedding in Virginia. I went with the doctor's blessing on the agreement that we stop every 1-1/2 hours to walk. My daughter was a sweetheart but very firm about making me keep my promise. During the weekend, I did tire easily, but always had a chair and a bottle of water nearby when I needed them. I rested when I needed to, and had many helpers to check on me regularly. I even felt well enough to dance a bit (just a little) I slept most of the way home, and spent a day or 2 resting up once home. Yesterday I went to the doc for my final checkup and was released to go back to work. I'm feeling better all the time, but still realize I have limits on what I can do. I've learned to listen to my body, more so now than ever before.

I'm so glad I went to the wedding and you'll be glad you go to watch the marathon. Your FIL will be glad you're there also! S and hope all goes well!

It has been 5 weeks and 2 days and I'm feeling great. I had a bad day yesterday only because I slept 5 hrs the night before to help my DS study for 3 big tests. I walked around like a zombie! But last night I made up for it and feel good again. Always make sure to get your sleep - we hurt so much more and our hormones go out of whack if we don't sleep.

My pain/swelling is virtually gone except for an occassional twinge/pull when I over stretch or bend too much. No spotting for the last 7 days, but just two days before it stopped I had the most spotting since surgery. I guess it was just the final blood getting out.

I've been doing Keigel (sp.?) exercises regularly since the day after surgery (I did before hysterectomy too). I'm doing everything except lifting over 10 lbs. I will hold off on that for as long as I can. I will be going back to work 6 hrs/day next week (12 to 6 pm) so I should be fine.

I hope to see more sisters posting positive recovery reports. It seems once we are okay we stop posting. It is encouraging to others who are not doing as well, or are further behind, that there is light at the end of the tunnel.

I certainly had my share of ups and downs, pains and aches all over, fear of not getting better, back pain, fatigue, etc. But it gets better. Just take care of the Princess!
