One week post-op ~ when will I feel better?

Dear Specs 54
Sorry to hear you not feeling the best today hopefully you will in control of your pain by now. The Doctors here are accessible but if theres any doubt, they would require you to go back into hospital and I'm not going back in.!
Any concerns that I would have are only simple little queries that there is loads of info about on this site . this is a great way to relieve the boredom
and talk to others in same boat. Take Care

Dear BethP, You probably have lost weight with all thats happened. I know my trousers were looser coming home from hospital. The trauma of surgery and the hospital food is dreadful here even when I was able to eat. Dont worry about he sweet tooth for now you re just making up for lost time! We have to be a little kind to ourselves without getting ourselves into an unhealthy state. Do you have any menopausal symptoms yet? or does it apply? Cant say ive noticed anything too much yet. Hrt is out for me because of BRCA1 gene. Happy Valentines Day1

Also, ask your doctor if you can use cold packs. I find they really help when I'm in pain--I bought 5 or 6 of those reusable cold packs and cycle through them--I even keep a cooler of them int he bedroom at night and every time I get up I take one back to bed if I have pain.

I kept my ovaries and so far have had a couple of hot flashes, nothing crazy. I've had friends that did some 'natural' remedies for symptoms, but I dont' know what they are.

Deb, your idea about the cold packs is great!

Hello ladies
Im going to try cold packs also have discovered that those underwear similar to 'magic knickers' give good relief of that pulling feeling on the stomach. once they not too tight they safe and no seams in the wrong places!

Whatever you do, don't get on the scale right away.. I did... OMG... How can they take parts away, we don't eat well for the next week, and gain 10 lbs. Scary. I understand it is the swelling of tissues...
Enjoy the ice cream..

I made that mistake with the scale....Yikes! We're going to NH for 10 days, when I return I may join Weight Watchers or something to motivate me!

Hello Poochie,
I had a TAH w/BSO on the 6th of February. My doctor tells me you will have good days and awful days. Just take time for yourself. Long hot showers help me as well. I will be praying for you. Keep your head up. And know there are people who love you and care.
