I was not voiding but 25cc to 50cc at a time and only about 250 a day output even though my body was thirsty all the time. So the ultrasound was really to check my bladder which by the way is fine and my voiding isssue has been resolved. It seems it could have been some sort of spasm from the anesthesia.That's when they noticed there was some bleeding and free fluid in that area.They told me this is not un common Thus far i think i'm fine. Pain can be very uncomfortable and my belly is finally going down. I purchased support underwear but a larger size so it wouldn't constrict me and i feel much better. I still hold my belly because it feels like something needs holding in there.LOL I never spotted after surgery until yesterday just a tinge and it's all normal.
Take care! Keep me posted!

The Q of when to have sex? My doc said I'd be OK after 3 weeks, I had a LSH, only inside wk, no incision into the vagina. Curiosly I have had the desire since after the hysterectomy and would love you get involved w/hubby again but I won't go there simply because:if they tell you (which my doc did) NO ABDOMINAL EXCERCISE till 6 wks that means no abdominals! I don't see how a person can have sex without using their abdominal muscles. I sappse if you just lie there it would be OK but that is too one sided for me,I would want to participate. Even if I thought I could just lie there, better judgement kinda goes out the window in the throws of passion...

Just my thoughts for whatever they are worth...I don't think I will try it till 6 wks cause that is MY timeline.

Hi Musiclover, as you can see by the last post from me Iam kinda feisty today. I better get out for my walk. It is rainy and cool here today as well. We have had so many overcast days...it really gets to a person. Recovery is going great, I feel like I am back to normal...well except for the sex part hahah...I am going in to wk tonight 5-9, my first day back. I think it will be fine. I wk reatail and will be on my feet the whole time so it will be interesting to see how my energy holds up.

Trust me BVPOK I couldn't even consider having sex right now! I simply don't even have the strength! My abdominal muscles are just not strong enough. But the dr's have said that the insides are good to go! I have no reason not to believe them but physically I just can't do it! It would be agony! Or like a dead fish! hahaha

I took my first drive out in the car today. I had to return movies. I'm not up for a waltz around the mall yet but at least I know I can get out if I need to. I think I need a nap now! Or at least a lie down on the couch with the tv!

Good morning ladies! Hope you have a great day!

I was wondering as well why you went for ultrasound. I'm still bleeding (spotting, mostly when I go the the washroom) and wondering if that is internal bleeding. I"ve decided to call my specialist and ask the nurse what to expect. Hum! I have a bladder infection as well so....might as well keep the questions going.
Improvement is noticed every day. Good days and bad days. Yesterday was tough with muscle pain and just really crabby because of it. Today is better and try to do work around the house in small projects. Who knows maybe that will help?
In the meantime to all my sisters enjoy the time we do have for a patient recovery.

lcw49, I'm happy for you also. I know what it is like waiting for it. I am waiting for mine also and am a bit apprehensive about it.
Be well and take care.

2 week progress report

Surgery on Oct 4th... Da Vinci lap method.. took 7 hours ,instead of the predicted 3-4.. doctor said bowel was distended and to move around it to get to other organs. I did the B prep the nite before, so dont understand why? Post-op appt on the 24th..will ask questions.
Stayed 3 nites in hospital. no sleep what-so-ever.
Used gas X strips.. would not recommend, as my throat was very sore for week after.. (breathing tube) so use the gas tablets they give you.
Finally sleeping on left side now(right still hurts) so sleep is much better!
Definite improvement this week.. doing lite housework and cooking.
Life does get better...
