recovery right around the corner

I am making my way back from a TAH on 3/13/08. Nurses were great and attending. I was very blessed with one in particular. My first week was spent mainly in the recliner, napping off and on. Getting up to walk about hourly. Feel discomfort even now right under my ribcage. Twinges everywhere I would expect to, where parts used to be. I could feel the stinging in my hands from the iv, along with my arm. I have been able to get by with a minimal amount of ibuprofen and hydrocodone/apap 600mg. Mostly used to be able to sleep at night. Couldn't get comfortable because of pain. Sleep princesses sleep !!!

For the first two and a half weeks, I would wake then become drenched with sweat. Within the first hour of being awake I would get a splitting headache. This from someone who rarely ever got one. Hormones ??? This has passed, thank heaven. After not having any bleeding for three weeks I now have a showing of some sort. am told it is normal. Also, I am encountering crying bouts along with anxiety attacks. I had never had these before, scarey! I have a g'friend who has them (attacks) and has for years. Again more hormones ? as we were talking and she said that she knows someone who gets them right before her periods. My mom was able to stay with me for three weeks, and now I am alone.. maybe this is contributing to these things. Maybe stress is bringing them on.

Had a 3 week check-up, she(Dr) said everything was fine.. had uterine cancer and large fibroids. Looks like they got all of the cancer...YEAH! When going thru all of my symptoms I was surprised at and concerned about.. the reply was, "that is normal." alrighty then.

I had to chuckle when looking at the list of ten things you need to know.. saying all of the friends who said they would help never seem to be at home when you call... so true !

I am greatful for the books which have been written. Wished I was better prepared with info beforehand tho. I am blaming myself for that one.
I Thank God for this website, for the creators and all who participate. Also, for those who are understanding and help willingly and happily. Angels are what they are !

warm regards to all... blessed be

I too agree, this website has been extremely helpful, I have learned so much and gained a greater sense of self-worth understanding, and perception. Renting movies has been my "drama" outlet, but also looking forward to returning to the work "drama" environment if you know what I mean.

Hey Denise, I am still off for another 2 weeks. I will be with you.

I was doing so good and then BAM!!!!!! I took my 1 1/2 mile walk and last night I started sneezing (about 20) times in a row. Allergy attack from my walk outside. I am hurting so bad down below that I took a pain pill. I have increased pink stained discharge from my vagina and I am having to pee often. I am going to call my doctor in the morning. I hope I did not hurt anything. I am still sneezing and stopped up. Man it is one step forward and two steps back.

I still can't sleep.
