I kept my ovaries so I still get that little hormonal surge and I gotta admit, it's really hard not to submit to my hormones! But I'm 3 weeks exactly from my LAVH so I'm really trying to be a good girl and fill my time with non-romantic thoughts...jigsaw puzzles, mystery novels, crossword books, horror movies...

I wasn't release by the Dr until after 8 weeks and then it was a little while longer until my DH got up the courage to give it a go. It was because of the complexity of my surgery and the amount of stitches I had to heal in my vaginal cuff. I was in a lot of pain prior to surgery and didn't want any of that to return.

Good luck and happy healing

first time...again!

At six weeks exactly, we gave it a try and it went fine. The next day I ached a little but nothing major. No bleeding or anything like that. We just took it really slow and easy. It was a much better experience than before the surgery with the (more than 10 fibroids!) pressing against my cervix and every nerve in my pelvic area.

I waited until I could go days without any pain and I had gone back to work and been able to do some light exercise. And of course my doctor had cleared me.

I know it's crazy but I had always said I wouldn't be sure I had done the right thing until I had sex and now I know, I REALLY did the right thing!

wow! Glad to hear some positive thoughts in this area. I have read some real horror stories. One thing that I read was that some experience climax with the uterus. One thing that I do know is that I won't have to be concerned with my bulging cervix.

Yes, it's exciting to think about. That in itself could make it great. How wonderful to be loving again and be cancer-free.

Our 22nd anniversary is Dec 28. My 6 week appt is Dec 11. It's scary, but what a way to celebrate.

In the past, my desires were not always where I would want it to be. I think it's age, teens coming and going, at all times, work, etc. I had some dryness issues, but not every time. I may look for a little help here for the first time.

The last time I was afraid of bursting my cancered uterus. Sounds crazy. I was also still recovering from my D&C then. I had called my doc's office to discuss this. I think the nurse thought it was cute.

Thanks for discussing this topic. Granted, being cancer-free is the most important component, but this is a recovery issue, as well.
