Recovery Progress Reports for Hysterectomy dates Feb 04-Feb 11,2008

Good evening ladies,

Felt pretty good this morning so I went and picked up my paycheck (short term disability pay) visited with friends, ordered my contacts and picked up some meds, went to the bank, ate a wopper jr. and then came home and went for a walk. I am pooped but my mind is spinning. Guess I will work on some more photos.

I have been able to sleep the last two nights by taking Atatax. Not sure my body knows what to do with sleep though.

Something that I have notice is that the scar from my spine surgery is starting to hurt along with the new ones. Simpapathy pains maybe, HA, HA. Sometimes when I move just right or am just standing I get a sharp pain at one of the incision sites on the inside. Anyone else ??

I have 2 more weeks before I go back to work and now I am wondering if I will be ready. I pretty much can work as many hours as needed as long as my vendors are taken care of so I will work part time. It is just dissapointing to have to do this again so soon. I just started working full time in Nov. My poor department.

Does anyone have any apprehension and anxiety about haveing sex with your husbands or partners ?? Guess my mind is just messing with me.

Oh yea, I also have trouble turning over in bed and when laying on my side it is the upper part of the stomach that hurts. I use pillows and blankets to support.

Hope you all have a great evening.

Bye for now

Yes it IS funny... i thought it was funny that I could not sleep because DH was in the bed and I had to share the covers. HAHA!! If I ever have to have another major surgery again, I'm trading in our queen for a King before my surgery! haha....

I have a huge day tomorrow, and I NEED to make sure I sleep good tonight, so I've already told my DH that I get ALL of the down comforter tonight, and he can either sleep in the same bed with me with other blankets or sleep on the couch. He was fine with that. haha. I might go out and buy another down comforter sometime next week, though... I love them, and it would not be bad to have another one around. that way we can have our "his and hers down comforters" for the rest of my recovery. HAHAHA!!!!

tomorrow I'll let you all know how I sleep tonight! HAHA!!

And, good for you for walking so much.... I think the pretzel was a great reward, too! I would have done the same. :-)

Cindy -- that is so cool about the rings!! what a great surprsie!! They sounds so beautiful!! :-) I haven't had any alcohol yet since my surgery.... for some reason, it just has not sounded good to me. I am a big wine person (both my DH and I are), and I just have not had any desire for wine..... I also like Martini's, too. I'm sure my desire for these will come back soon enough.

Kjjjranch -- about the sex thing... well, I didn't mention this but since you asked.... last Sunday, my DH and I fooled around for the first time. NO intercourse... but my doctor said anything other than intercourse is OK as long as I'm ready. Well, I wasn't apprehensive at all... but as a result, I did end up with the "big O" and the next day my whole abdomen hurt. haha. I actually think it might have been a bit much (just the intesnsity, and may have caused my abs to tighten.... not to go into TOOO much detail). So, now I'm a bit apprehensive... haha. But, it was great, though!! I will say that.... all the girl parts that I still have are still working fine! haha.

Ok, have a good evening everyone!!

Cindy - the ring was such a great surprise and sounds beautiful.

Kathy - congrats on the big "O". My doctor didn't tell me anything yet, but I see her again Monday..... I think about venturing that way, but am never quite that brave - soon I'll have to give in....... But I have a DH that was convenienced after reading some posts about Hysterectomies online and they all said they wished they hadn't done it, their lives were over and no more sex..... So I have to deal with this stereo type attitude, so he hasn't been much help or around much since surgery (which is why I've been forced to take care of most things myself). But maybe he'll get over it one day - I just don't have the energy to deal with it just yet, and way too emotional to go there either. Oh well, I'm done griping now.

I'm just glad to hear that most have wonderful DH/DP's to help them through this time!!!

Ok girls, go drink something hot and take something that works to help you sleep tonight. I predict tonight will be a better night for all!!!!!

Hey Nicole, where are you? Are you OK?

Happy Healing!

Hi everyone,

I afraid to say it but I feel really good this morning (3wks & 2 days post op) I woke up and jumped out of bed took my dogs out and starting making coffee before it even dawned on me that I wasn't sore or anything. Actually what caught my attention was that my pj's felt baggy, they are one size to big that I had bought for post op. I don't want to double cross myself but I really do feel good. Let's hope it lasts even for a few hours today. Ya **!!!!

Best of health to everyone else today,


TAH, with Oopechtomy of left Ovary

First, k9krazy2, sending you a big hug. I'm sorry your DH hasn't been around much. Hang in there.

Sounds like alot of us are having similar progress. I have felt fairly well the past week, then yesterday and today my guts just feel sore. I think its because I went back to our own bed and I move around alot in bed and wake up cramped and achy. I guess I'm going back to the couch. My incision looks good, its dry skin flaking around it now, guess I need to put something on it. Its my insides that are bothering me.
I still have pain when going to the bathroom (number 1 and 2) and REALLY want that to go away!
We went to a restaurant the other night and the booth we sat in was soo cushy and slanted back that I felt like I was sitting in a hole. I got sore after sitting there for about an hour.
Other than that, its been bearable. Have a great weekend ladies!

Hey everyone.....

just a quick note.... I'm off to do this big training event today where I'm leading the whole thing. Wish me luck.... it's my first BIG day since surgery, and this will be a big test... it's from 9:30 - 3:00. I do have a back up who will be there to step in for me if I find my body just cannot make it to 3 PM, but I'm hoping that won't happen.

Ok, so I'm like BillyJack.... I'm really almost afraid to say it, but I am feeling really good AGAIN. I really think maybe the worst is finally behind me. I'm 3 weeks and 5 days now (will be 4 weeks on Monday), so maybe this is just the magic time when people start to feel good? If I make it through this big day, and tomorrow I feel fine, I think I'll be a lot more optimistic. I think TOMORROW will be the true test after a big day like today....

for this training event, I'm the keynote speaker, so I'll be either on my feet or sitting on a stool most of the time. I also have requested a regular chair in case I need that... but I'll up front speaking to a lot of people, so I need to be visible, so that is why standing or a stool is preferable. So, given I'll be "ON" most of the day today, that is why I think tomorrow will be the true test.... Tomorrow you'll either get a post from me saying, "I feel like I got run over by a truck" or "I feel great!" haha. We'll see!

Also, I slept well last night! DH slept in the same bed, but we did the "his adn hers" blankets this time. HAHA!! I got the whole down comforter, and he had his own blankets... worked great!!! Yay. So, I finally figured out how to sleep good with DH in the bed. I like having him there... we've always slept in the same bed, and I just like having him there with me... so I'm glad that we figured out how to make this work.

Ok, I'm off to my big event... will try to check in tonight!!

Wow, Lovestorun, you're inspiring! I wish you luck, let us know how it went, which I'm sure will be fine! I envy you, if I had to speak in front of people, I would pass out! HA, and that has nothing to do with my surgery, just a teensy tiny phobia of mine! (If you consider that I'd rather go through the hysterectomy again before speaking in public, teensy tiny)
Have a wonderful time at your EVENT!!

Hope the day went well Loves to Run! I slept much better yesterday, my son in law and daughter were here last night so i had a few glasses of wine. That combined with the vicodin later, and the fact that i was sooo tired helped. Admin. Note: alcohol and vicodin can be a dangerous combination. Please use caution. I woke up a few times but was able to go back to sleep. So i walked about 3/4 mile this morning, am planning on making dinner, and am waiting to see how tomorrow feels! Last time i walked that much, i hurt like crazy the next day. I did stop at my office today too, mistake! lol. my desk is piled with things to do... so now im thinking i might try and go in tuesday just to clear the desk, prioritize what needs to be done and such. I have a 4 week appt monday with my DR., will decide after that.
Hope everyone is doing better every day... i know if i compare today to 2 weeks ago Im significantly better, guess im just impatient.
Enjoy your day all.

wow Paula - wine and vicodin - girl knows how to party, lol. I know how you feel about the work. From the moment I went back I was swamped. Luckily I was ready when I got there (sorta), but it is good to be cautious with that since you know you will be overwhemed when you go back!!

Kathy - hope your day goes well. I am really really hoping you have turned a corner and even though you have a big day, maybe you will still feel good when it is over? At the least you will feel good about doing something associated with normal life.

I did a dumb thing this morning. Was getting a new armoir delivered to go in my basement. THe spot where it was to go was occupied by an antique china cabinet (my grandmas) filled with crystal, dishes, etc. Well, no one was here to help me, so i emptied it, dragged it across the room and re-filled it with all the china, etc. Ugh. My abs feel really weird right now - a strange tightness in my belly. I hope i didn't totally strain anything. It was , uh, a bit more than 10 lbs, lol. I am just too impatient and wanted the project done.

Now the delivery guys are in my basement putting the new armoir together. As soon as they leave it is back to the couch for me!!!
