Okay... you know I think I'm getting the jist of it here... I think by then you've hit 5 weeks out and you start trying to act all normal and going back to your daily routine and you just can't and you're body slams you into a wall as a subtle

Thanks for that heads up madam... I'm going to take it very easy until I hit week 7. Then I'm off to Vegas to party like a crazy woman... lol....

How much red is too much red?

Hey I just thought of something, what if I don't get any bleeding or clotting or anything coming out? Here I am thinking I'm doing okay, but maybe that stuff NEEDS to leave your body? Should I be checking if I don't get anything at all??

I'm not sure. To tell you the truth I didn't even now we had to pass the stitches.

Speaking of stitches and all things internal I should really know more about, I thought they (being stitches) were supposed to dissolve?? If they dissolve we wouldn't really see anything would we?

And here's a good one - If we 'pass' the stitches from the vaginal cuff what happens to the 'stuff' from the internal ones above the vaginal cuff???

You ask good questions, I don't have the answers. That's a very good question about what's outside of the vaginal cuff. Makes me wonder if I'm still going to drain from time to time, even without my uterus. Yikes, please say it isn't so!!

I've heard that discharge can also be from shedding dead tissue. That makes more sense to me than stitches. Maybe it's a combination of stitches _and_ dead tissue ??

I just hope all this coughing I'm doing isn't screwing things up inside. Adhesions comes to mind

Las Vegas, Week 7 huh? ha ha ha ha ... you'll have to let us know how Mean Week 8 goes LOL Good thing you're kidding, I might have to worry about you!

Still shedding, by the way.

Too many hours since my last check in.... Off to bed in a few.

I'm going with your 'dead tissue' version. That sounds more plausible cause I don't even want to THINK about the other stuff just hanging out there above the

I thought your coughing was getting under control. I'd still check with your doc though just to ask either way. We'll just think negative on the adhesions.

You keep shedding, go see your doc for sure.
