I have my 6 week follow up tomorrow! I'm so excited ... I'm very ready for the green light to working out and such. I've had a very good recovery. I'm so sorry for those of you still struggling. No pain since the first week. My belly hasn't really been all that swollen and it stopped at about week 2. My spotting finally stopped about 10 days ago. So I'm psyched! I did wear a girdle for the first 10 days or so. Just a light one, but it made a world of difference. I stopped after my belly went down for good.

I had my 6-week checkup today and all was good. I'm finally able to resume a life! There are no restrictions for me, which makes my husband VERY happy. So I'll be heading back to work tomorrow. Thank goodness I can fit into my pants again! I'll be staying at home in the office, catching up on email, phone calls and all that I missed for the past 6 weeks. But, Thursday and Friday will be busy with a meeting and working out in the field. I guess I'll just have to rest when I get home on those days. We'll see how it goes for the first full week of work. That will be next week, our busiest week of the month.

I do hope everyone is feeling better, particularly those of you who are still struggling. Just take care and know we're all thinking of you.

Well Equinox... we must all be hallucinating... cuz my belly is swellen and my doc told me it would take time for it to go down. He told me it was edema from having a major surgery and only time would make it shrink. I too have my 6 week check this week and am not looking forward to the internal exam, but am looking forward to hopefully resuming a somewhat normal routine.

I hope all that are having a rough time healing are seeing improvement a day at a time. I know that every week I am feeling a bit more like my old self. Just some odd twinges every once and a while, which I attest to all those nerves getting back to normal.

The weather has broken one more time here. Hopefully we are done with the cold weather. It helps to sit outside with the sun on your face with a book, even if you have to have a sweatshirt on.

Healing blessings to all sisters out there!

I had a check up including an internal exam. It wasn't too bad, but I needed a little silver nitrate on the vaginal cuff. I wanted to go back to work monday, but the doctor would only write a release that said no heavy lifting, and since I am a staff nurse my hospital won't let me come back until I am released to full duty. I have been released for anything I feel up to except heavy lifting, baths, and sex. Since my husband died 5 years ago the last one is a moot point anyway. I see the doctor again the 25th, maybe I can go back to work then.

Swelly belly

Shoot there had better be such as a thing as the swelly belly! I need an excuse as to why my belly is swollen! Other then getting bigger due to my age! God only knows I guess. Well I go on Thursday for my 6 week check up. I am hoping to get the ok to go back to work on Friday. I miss the kids. I work at the school with kindergarten through 2nd grade. I also heard they miss me. So it is time to go back. But now just to get through the appointment. I am just hoping it does not hurt to bad. The spotting has pretty much stopped other then when I have a bm. I wonder if that is due to pressure. Anyone else have that problem? Well anyways have a great night and happy healing. Sadie1964

I missed a few days of posts....took a bit to catch up. Glad the majority of everyone's sense of humours are there! Some post really make me chuckle. I so HATED stretch pants before so I can't wait till they head baack into my dresser only to be released for sick days! I have my 6 week check up Friday and actually am looking forward to it. I think I want the a-okay to get on with life, I think I'm caught up with the psychological stuff. I head back to work Monday. I think this time off has been good on that front too, I realize I can survive emotionally without my job. Isn't it crazy how dependent we become on structure? Anyhoo thanks for the posts gals, it really does help!

I forgot to mention that I had an internal today at my 6 week checkup..it was very quick and painless...I was really dreading it but it was nothing. I had a TLH-BSO with the robot and they "delivered" my organs vaginally. I got the "OK" so I guess that means that the vaginal cuff stitches are ok and life goes back to normal..whatever that might be! hugs to all

Yahoo! I took my last unopened package of pads back to WalMart tonight! I told the cashier my reason for returning them was (spoken with a big smile) "I just don't need these anymore!"

DD gets the open packages in 3 months for post partum needs!

Going for my post op tomorrow.

I have felt really great over the past few days. I was able to tell that I have gotten better. I had to take a couple of jogging steps over the past couple of days and they didn't bother me. And tonight I had to start the lawn mower for DS. It was almost a breeze. Tried that 2 weeks ago and knew I couldn't keep pulling.

Have a funny story. About 2 1/2 weeks ago, the heavy trash can had to go down to the street. Well, I knew it was too heavy and hubby wasn't home. Not sure where my son was. Anyway, the only one I could ask for help was my 6 months pregnant daughter. So the two of us together dragged it down. It was pretty pathetic.

Hellloo ladies I am so glad everyones check up went great!! That is such a relief, I go on thurs crossing my fingers, gotta have the internal dreading that very much soo especially since the first one was only 2 weeks afterz!! but i just want it over with, i thought i might cheat and use some of the lidocane cream i have from my previous bladder testing hmm what do you think?? Joan i am so glad to hear you feel better as well and all was good (as i am rubbing my exisiting SWELLY BELLY) had a pretty decent day today feeling better since i stopped all meds including my hormones i think they werent the right ones for me..maybe. I had a nice long post this morning at 6:30am since i still couldnt sleep and the whole darn thing disappeared boy was i honkerblonked made me go to sleep tho LOL..Ravioli thankyou for the thoughts and understanding, i was really in the slums for awhile, trying to come out of it and think positive..I was almost regretting having the surgery..but then i took my butt to the thrift store to find some more of those oh so attractive stretch pamts i love so much....and bought the cutiest pair of cheetah high heels!!! Lmao not that i can wear them soon or at all but the thought put a smile on my face, i said these are for the new me as i was hanging on to the shelf with both hands (still ocassional gas pains) My god i cant wait for normal clothes again!!!, my neighbors daughter informed me (shes 6) that she was happy i was pregnant and having a baby---funny she saw me walking the dog rubbing my belly..i'm thinking yeah that would be a million dollar miracle, i just smiled her poor mom mortified i said its ok, let her know thats what happens when you eat in bed late at night LOL no baby here. My sister-law once again forgot and asked me when am i do for my period LOL, i said anyday now and then we laughed, of course she forgot they all do even myself..my incinsions still aggravate the crap out of me feeling very black and blue like i was used for a soccer ball or something, cant wait for that to end.This way i can stop rubbing and giving people the wrong impression haha. Been keeping the belly insicion covered with those round cotton make-up remover wipes with some tape since thats the one hurting-correction my two belly buttons thats what it looks like. the other ones still hurt a little since they rest in my lap on my thigh when i sit up compliments of miss swelly belly..Kidney infection i think is better-dont think it was stones but still have to see specialist..decided i needed new docs, that are at least a little older than i am . Sleeping well that comes and goes, crazy dreams wow are they ever, alot of sex dreams wonder whats that about, since i have no desire in that department( do hope that changes) I just cant wait to really have a good shaving!!!! going crazy cant get past the belly to do the job..good thing we had a cold front the fur on my legs kept me warm LOL, too stubborn to let anyone help me i admit it. Ok i think i rabbled enough must be trying to make up for the weeks i didnt post. I figured i get it in now while i'm not whining too much...geez i have never whined in my life but i sure made up for it in the last 6 weeks huh. Have a great evening hope all is feeling well, those who can resume the nasty hope you got your music ready and enjoy!! Lots of hugges and kisses. And again thankyou all for the words of encouragement they helped alot. By the way cross our fingers and say a big prayer for me thurs...the ER visit last week thought my endo might be back somewhere else...lets hope not. So i take myself to bed to rubbing my belly and my back ohh the excitement..wishes for sleep before 3am ahhh..
