11 days after surgery pain of overdoing

Originally Posted by wackadoo
I have a sharp pain more on the right side, it hurts so bad that if there is any pressure on that area (near my hip) then it will bring tears to my eyes. I too have felt like I had labor pains, however that seems to happen when I have to go to the washroom. I believe that is gas pains. I did not sleep very good, I woke up 3 diffrent times from the pain also to use the bathroom (which I completley dread!) I have an appointment this afternoon. I have also had alot of lower back pain so I think I may have a bladder infection. I think I expected too much. I had my right overy removed 5 years ago and I felt fine and was moving around after a week, I guess may I thought that was how this would be, even if the doctor said different. I feel like after all I had done last week I set my recovery back a few notches. I am also wondering if anyone else is as emotional as I am so not only do I have ups ans downs with pain I am on a major emotional rollercoaster. I dont know if that is from the surgery or from the lupron shot that was given to me before surgery. I had 6 months of lupron 10 years ago and only had hot flashes, not a big deal this time I had 2 doses and I was well a mess none the less. I drove myself to the doctor after work oneday without having an appointment ask her if I was crazy or if I was losing my mind. So I am not sure if these emotion are lingering from this shot or if it is from the lack of hormones from the surgery.

I will let you know what the doctor has to say, which by the way, i am absolutely terrifed of the examine that said I was going to need.
Well I did not make it to my doctor appointmentI went to the ER. It turned out that I had an infection, it was an abcess. I spent the last 4 nights in the hospital getting IV antibotics. They said that my white blood count had gone down as well as the size of the abcess so they did not need to due a second surgery to drain it. Thank Goodness! Boy i thought I was bored at home, but the last 5 day my goodness...There is no place like home!!! I am on major antibotics for the next 10 days and am starting to feel better.

OH MY! Hope you feel better soon! I will be thinking of you! Mine has turned out to be pockets of blood - ever heard of that? Anyway, turns out after surgery you can have pockets of blood that are left that can casue pain until the burst and come out (which by the way - scared me to death)

I had my surgery on the 5th. I had an experience of overdoing myself. It does feel awful and then I was worried about what possible damge I had done. The girls on this site were a great support to try and ease my anxiety. I am back at resting and doing very little. That has helped. I guess for some of us the reality of healing is alot slower than what we expect. That is sure the case for me. I cn't believe that in some ways I am feeling worse than last week!
Wackadoo~~I don't know anything about lupron but have been feeling very emotional and weepy. I am sure it is the hormones. I am beginning to feel other symptoms that I know are hormonal also. Definitely something we need to speak with the doctor about but until then feel free to vent. I will listen anytime!

Thank you, it is nice to know that i am not alone. they have me on estragin and the upped my doses an that seems to be helping the hot flashes happen 2 times a day rather then every 20 minutes and night sweats have diminished to pretty much nothing. I am not as moody or weepy either. i am however still a little on the sensitive side. I guess it just takes time for these meds to work.

Yea - I was definenetly worse last week (week 2 after surgery). I am sure I over did it as well. Wackadoo - the pockets of blood I guess are like lierally pockets that got stuck during surgery and then they burst and come out the vagina. They come out fast - like you are peeing. Happened again last night so I am going to call dr just to let her know.

Who would have thought? I did not realize all of the things that come along with this surgery. I have had many surgeries, but this on got the best of me! So much for thinking that I would be back to normal in a few weeks!

I guess (HA!) I am lucky because once they got in there, my ovaries were fine so she left them. I am not having to take hormones, but I will say I think my body is still getting used to no uterus because I have had nightsweats!

tell me about it - this is just week 3 at home for me - actually it will not be 3 weeks from surgery until Thursday. I am noy used to sitting around doing nothing though. I am a teacher so I keep emailing my friends who teach also. I am also doing my lessons for my class so that keeps me busy some - other than that - not doing much of anything! Are you driving yet? I was thinking about being crazy and going to Walgreens! HA!

Last week I drove to get breakfast. My doctor told me 2 weeks or after you no longer need pain meds. If you are not on pain meds driving should be alright. I would start out on a short distance to see how you feel, I was a little uncomfortable and I couldn't wait to get home in the end. At this point with all the meds I am on from this abcess and the pain I am feeling from that I am alright staying right here. (living in a 3rd floor apt with no elevator) Helps me stay put. Those stairs are too much!
