Sooo glad!

I am so happy to have joined today. Reading that you ladies are experiencing just what I am going thru is such a relief. Every time I start hurting I get on a guilt trip thinking I overdid something.

My TAH was 1/16/08 and my GYN appt is next Monday and I am hoping she will release me to resume some normal activities, like driving and going back to work part time.

Thank you all for taking the time to encourage others!

I am going to see my DR tomorrow. I was supposed to go next week but moved it up because my DH has a DR appointment in the same building tomorrow. (we live 1.5 hrs away). So anyway it will save me a trip next week. I am looking forward to hear what she has to say, hopefully she will release me for sex!! DH and I are going crazy!! I have been feeling good the last week or so, though I think I over did it a little yesterday with the vaccuming and washing of the floor! I am a little tender today, so I vegged out.
I am not looking forward to going back to work on the 3rd. OH WELL, I will enjoy the time I have!
Take Care everyone.

Hi Nanou:
You did the vacuuming? That is one of the things I am anxious to get back to, but have been told it is a no - no for me for a while. I'm hoping next week will give me the OK. I mopped the kitchen this morning and this afternoon I feel pretty tired. Hang in there.

I couldn't wait anymore to vacuum, I had dog hair tumbleweeds blowing around and my carpet looked like someone skinned a dog and laid it down!!!! I probably should have waited, but too late now. If you can wait until your DR says then I think I would.....now!

I want to vacuum so bad! DH did 2 weeks ago....I usually do once or twice a week. I finally got new glasses ( the others broke 6 months ago) and I can see ALL the grime. I want to take one room at a time and deep clean. I know I would pass out or pull something so I won't, but my goodness........

Hello Ladies-
Well I went to work on tuesday- am a sub for lunch hour recess and noon duty at the school district - and when i got home- man!! i was wiped out- slept for an hour. Got up the next day and took care of our DS who is 7 as he had the fever and severe headache- now told that is a form of the flu.
Made him nap with me and we slept for 3 hours!!!
Went to conferences for our DS who is 13- 5 of them in 2 hours- helped the 7 yo with some homework- and crashed on the couch for a bit...........
tried and key word there- tried- to sleep but the kids would not let me!!
So- I too am feeling sluggish and a bit tired lately- and now all 4 kids are home for tomorrow as there are conferences ...........and i have one left for tomorrow!
Sex part is feeling great- no more pain!!!! I had so many fibroid tumors that it was hurting me- now - i feel like the first time- all over again.
Hope that everyone is healing well and staying safe......................

I go for my post-op exam next Wednesday and am looking forward to it. My doc is sooo patient...he sits and looks straight into my eyes when he talks and never leaves the room without asking over and over if I have any questions. I am enjoying this time off, particularly when its so cold outside. I am scheduled to start working March 3rd, part time. I still have a lot of pain around my incision, particularly on my right side and when I lifted my right leg to get into the truck yesterday, I felt like I pulled something and it's been throbbing ever since. I think it has something to do with the bladder sling, but am anxious to find out from doc next week.

My DH noticed I was getting around better and got very amourous...well, needless to say we went all the way and now I'm a little nervous because my insides and my incision are bothering me. I'm a little embarrassed to tell the doc we couldn't wait until after the post-op exam (even after 27 years of marriage!), but I was a little anxious to see if it would feel any different...and it didn't...yeah!!!

I keep reading all the posts on here from ladies that had their surgery @ the same time as me give or take a few days & I wonder something..... How come I am 5 weeks post op & had my check up last week..... & the doc said I was healing wonderfully.... but I still can't have SEX !!!! I have to have one last check up on 3/6 before I can be released. I don't understand @ all. He said I was doing so great & he did a pelvic exam, but my DH can't be in there Sorry to vent but my DH isn't the only one who is ready for more than Thanks ladies, I needed to share that frustration with someone ( or all )

Hi, I go back to work on March 3rd full time. I tried to back earlier because I was feeling stronger (I thought). I would get a couple hours in and just want to come home and nap. I take cat naps a couple times a day. I am taking my vitamins and trying to increase my endurance but it seems like my body takes just so much then I sleep. I am guessing the when I go back full time, I will be napping alot when I get home.

I have a question though, is it unsual to spot after 5 weeks out? It was only just a little and it was a rosy color. I spotted for about a week after 3 weeks out and that was it. I have not seen any other discharge as far as stitches etc...
