Hi everyone,

Ok, I just have to ask.... someone's gotta ask, right? I KNOW this will be TMI.... but we all are hopefully going to experience this. But, have any of you had the big "O" yet? For me, I finally did. (I know TMI).... but I finally am at a point where the pain in my abdomen is not over-riding other desires! haha. I now know what other women mean when they say it's not worse, but it's just different.

Anyway, I'm glad things are still "functioning" in that area. That was kind of a big fear of mine going into this... but now I think everthing is going to be OK! :-)

I totally cannot believe I'm even talking about this on a public forum! haha!!! Oh well....

Apparently it is just a gauze packing that they put in the vagina after surgery for containing the post-op bleeding.

I had some bleeding in the hospital and less when I got home. Since then it has been a gradual change from pink to yellow/brown and diminishing in quantity with each day that goes by. I think that the amount of discharge and bleeding are different with each person and definitely seems more prevalent with the TVH and LAVH patients since their stitches are more external than the TAH folks.

Anyway - nice to see you here and glad to know things are going well!!

I am here everyday, lol. I just don't post a lot. lol, I have been a member since 06, but just kept off putting my surgery becuz I was so scared. and I wanted to wait till I moved for better care. which I think I have gotten? I am close to my family, and that has made a huge difference. thank you for informing me,I have no memeory of the packing thing............. I had such scant bleeding afterwards. have a great day

Good Morning Ladies,

Happy Weekend! As always I am happy to hear that everyone seems to be progressing.

Welcome to our newest members... You are in great company!

Well I was a bad girl last night....
We had people over and we played Rock Band (see previous posts where I explained I am 41 going on 12). I was soooo happy to be doing something besides watching TV or reading that I waaaaay overdid it. I think I probably would have been ok had I stopped with singing but I love playing the drums and that is what got me. I ended up so drained and aching and it felt like I had pulling in my internal stitches. I can handle the discomfort but I get worried I will mess up my recovery or cause adhessions. Anyway, I went to bed at about 10pm and stayed there until about 10am this morning. I plan to keep my activity level down a bit more today.

I think at this level of recovery it is easy to overdo it. We start feeling better and we have been so bored that we just want to push the limits.

Well I have more school work to do so I better get on it. If I complete 2 more chapters and take 4 more tests I will be officially caught up!

Have a great Saturday all!!!!

Cindy

Ah Dawn,,, welcome to the coolest group on the site! Actually, we are very close, I live in St.Charles, had my surgery feb 4th also! Were you at Delnor Hospital? If you were, we were probably on the same floor on even across the hall from each other. Small world isnt it!?

Loves to Run.. as for the big "O"...yep.. me too! I was a little worried about that too, and I agree..its different. I was a little hesitant to "try" it, but, it worked so lol.. do we really talk about all this on a public forum any one can view! lol oh well i guess if you talk about BM's why not talk about the big O.

I walked about 3/4 mile today, not much but i was wearing down so decided not to push it.
So now im home for the rest of the day and am going to have some lunch and a nap i think before my daughter and son in law come over. I may even have a glass of wine tonight. Ive tried that a few times since the surgery and its almost and immediate hot flash so ive not had much, but maybe tonight.
Take care all

AhDawn, I was in 349 with a not soo sweet roomate and family. That means we must have been across the hall or right next to each other! Wow!And my son was walking with me some, he is 30 though. I had a blue robe, short brown hair.. glasses. I thought the nurses, actually the whole staff was amazing! Hope you had the same experience.
