Hello

Hello!

Idahonurse. We all are thinking of you and I certainly hope that you get some of the relief you need very soon.

Becca_d my heart goes out to you. I agree with all the ladies who have suggested you persist with finding a doctor that will give you the answers you need. I also agree with the fact that you might want to consider talking with a professional counselor. You have gone through alot but we are all stronger than we realize and you will be able to make it through this.

I would like to say I had a better evening but unfortunately it was another lousy one. At dinner last night I did the stupidest thing. Without even thinking. I was seated in my chair and my back was hurting, as it has been all the time lately, and I could not comfortably reach the table and rest my back so I did what would have been natural pre-op and I lifted my chair and tried to scoot it in. Incredible ab pain reminded me I messed up big! Of course DH was extremely concerned got me settled on couch with pain meds, but of course the anxiety kicked in and I had visions of hemorrages and prolapses all evening. Then when DH convinced me to go to bed I had what is becoming typical for me an evening of trying to sleep and i can't. 3am and I am stil looking at the clock. I did finally fall asleep around 4 but then it is not restful sleep as I continually wake. I can only hope I can ease some of this anxiety and have abetter day and night today.

idahonurse - I will be praying for you and for your recovery, in whatever form that may have to be. Just know that things will get easier soon and God only gives us what we can handle (this has been said to me many times over the last few weeks and amazingly we have come through everything that has been thrown at us), and you are a strong person. Think of all you have already perservered through. Sometimes, that helps me put things into perspective when I am down and out and having a hard time coping. You hang in there! I will pray for the doctors to have wisdom and your peace of mind during such a hard time.

Had my three week follow up yesterday. Everything is ok but I am developing a yeast infection at my incision site due to my stomach hanging over it. My doctor put me on a cream.

Hugs to those who need them

Idahonurse, hope your feeling better.

Becca_d I'm so sorry that happened to you. It's horrible that your doctor did not even explain why this happened or even give you follow up care. I agree it would probably be good for you to talk with someone. That's alot to handle, especially when it's unexpected. Hang in there. I hope you find the answers you need.

wish I would have known about this sooner. I had abdominal hysterectomy plus they took 1 ovary and tube on Oct. 5. Maybe I would not have driven myself to my 2 week post op on the 19th. I have over done and over done some more. I feel like such an idiot. I hate being down physically and now mentally because I can't stop doing! I am trying to step over the piles of dirty laundry and walk around around the dust buffalos today. It is so much easier to not clean when you just do not feel like than when you just can't. This week is my period week... I do not regret surgery but wish I was better patient. maybe now with more info and support I will be better. Only a handful of people even know I have done this and the ones who do know I try to put on a brave front.

Surgery on 10/4. Being a female definatly is not for whimps! I have managed to stay down more than most of my friends, family, and dr thought possible. I am so tired all the time. If I get up for to long the next day I can't hardly move. Mostly I am struggling with the emotions. I dont know if it is hormones or what. I have never been a cryer and have always just been "what is is and what will be will be" kinda person. I can handle the pain just fine it is the waking at 3 am and bawling for no reason that is driving me crazy!

Is anyone else feeling like a monster was created instead of destroyed?

Hi fetch: I can tell you that I am feeling hyper sensitive. I kept my ovaries so I don't know if it's hormonal or not. But, I can tell you that I get annoyed at very little things and I often feel weepy....both sad and happy cries. For example, I was watching a youtube video of "Britain's Got Talent" where a man who had an ordinary job had an exceptional voice and won the competition. I was bawling my eyes out! But also, my boyfriend said something that would normally have been a funny tease, I overreacted and took it as a personal attack! I don't know why it's happening, and it certainly isn't normal for me. But I'm chalking it up to the surgery and being cooped up like a caged animal! I'm hoping things will be better for me soon as I'm sure they will be for you too!

I've appreciated all of the nice words and encouragement from you sisters. If you are a prayer, please, please, please pray for a quick recovery that happens before Monday so that I can cancel the surgery. Thankyou in advance. M
Idahonurse,

My prayers and good wishes go out to you. I know you will have a speedy recovery, we are all rooting for you!!!!
