Six months out - any help?

Wow!! This is really something. I just told my husband the other day I feel like all of my bones are aching. I did not have this before surgery either. I just assumed it was from tiredness. I really get bad in pain in my lower back after I have a long day or when I have a few busy days in a row. I am glad I read this post.

Mine came on only after the surgery. Yes, I had pain before the surgery due to the large fibroids and their location, but it didn't have anything to do with the pain I have now. It feels like it's in my bones and it's hard to describe to the doctor.

He ordered bloodwork to check for Lupus and rheumatoid arthritis - great, there can't be some coincidence it starts for us all after we get our hysterectomies.
NPWriter, my doctor just gave me bloodwork orders for rhematoid arthritis as well. i cant believe it. this is all very bizarre to me

Hi,
I hope you all had a Happy Thanksgiving! I don't know why doctors do not recognize and listen to what we say. My bones did not hurt like they do now. For me, March will be a year. Let's see if I feel any better.

Meanwhile, enjoy the fun and stress of the holidays.

Talk soon.

hey girlz.........just wondering now, if any of you had any of the synthetic antibiotics (from the fluoroquinolone family, like cipro, or levaquin, or some of the others?), which is what triggered my autoimmune response years ago, giving me lupus etc............aaanyway, the antibiotics destroy some of the cells in the ligaments. check out the site, fqresearch, which explains all the side-effects, if you have ever taken any of them? hmmmm.......gee.

I, for one, didn't have any since I told them specifically I've had a reaction to one of the "quinolone" drugs before. Unless they snuck it in on me during the operation, which I could find out, I had no antibiotics given to me after...but I would figure to give me a drug which I alerted to them beforehand that I had an allergic reaction to...wouldn't be very good policy.

This is quite interesting. I got infected and was put on antibiotics during my recovery. My incision was open at the bottom and I was on them for 14 days.

Hey there
I noticed your username, loveforhorses, do you ride then? I was just wondering since we may have a lot in common. I am only about 11 weeks out and have started riding again after 8 weeks, I have two horses and over the weekend I overdid it and am now regretting it. Just wondering how much we have in common. I am also sorry your having the hip pain, I have some serious back issues, worse now since the surgery since the lack of using my abs. I too don't want to take HRT for fear of the side effects. I am now taking calcium supplements as well as my multi vitamin. Anyway, sorry to ramble on.

Hey Barrelrcr
I do ride, but unfortunately I don't have any horses now. Wow, I am impressed you were able to get out and do that at eight weeks. I hope you didn't hurt yourself too much. Give yourself a few days and you'll probably be as good as new. I know you were probably feeling like you were ready, and if I had a horse, I'm sure I would have done the same thing. True horse lovers would understand! I am 46 and had a TAH/BHO about six months ago. I live in the North Georgia mountains and it's beautiful here. Thanks for writing. I love hearing about horses.
By the way, do you notice any difference taking the calcium?

I only started the calcium supp. for maybe the past 4-5 days. Probably too soon to tell.
Yes, true horselovers understand how hard it is not to get back in the saddle! North Ga. sounds really nice, my husband and I want to eventually some day move down there, probably more towards Savannah. We love it there. We are both getting tired of winters.
Anyway, its nice talkin to you. I hope you get another horse someday soon! Theres no better place to be than on the back of a horse! Take care and I hope your pain goes away!
Hugs
Connie
