Hysterectomy dates Mar 10-Mar 17,2008

Hi girls!
Fatigue hits me hard most afternoons at work.
today, by the time 3 o'clock came I was hitting the exhaustion wall- I slurped down some coffee and was nodding off at my desk by 4pm.

I had hoped to start back at the gym but I lack the energy at night. I walk every day, a good long walk on my lunch hour- and that will have to suffice until I feel up to the gym

I believe if the body is exhausted, then it is unwise to push it... I am not ready to run anywhere except to a mall ; )

I was just reading my op report and I decided to look up what was considered a "large fibroid". The information I found said that 8 cm. is considered large and that is about the size of a softball. I can't beleive that mine was 12 cm. That was just one of multiple fibroids. I swear I don't do anything small.....12 lb 12 oz baby and a 12 cm. fibroid. I also had a 10 lb 12 oz baby. (Also, the 11 lb. 6 oz. baby.) Man, 12 really seems to be my number?

I think I read of someone on here having a 14 cm. fibroid......so does anyone else know what size fibroids they were hauling around?

Just a conversation starter.....

I have also noticed my breast's are diffrent I have changed my eating habits since Jan of this year have lost 15 lbs before the surgery and managed to keep it off plus lose another 5 lbs. My breast seem smaller and I cant tell I have lost weight in my tummy I know I didn't lose 20 in the chest lol must be something that goes with the surgery. Also does anyone else still have a swelled tummy?

Although I still have swelly belly, I was delighted to find out the other night that I could fit into my regular capris. A tunic top helped to camoflauge the belly. I went out to dinner and sat for a long time without discomfort!

Mine was the size of a golf ball from my first surgery in 2005. I also have a cyst that was the same size.

I still have swelly belly. I my breast also shrank some.

As a side note, I was just released from the ER. Apparently I had a seizure for the first time. My pain form the cyst was doing okay until I gained consciousness.

Well from what I have been able to find out a 10 cm. fibroid is about the size of a softball. Mine was 12 cm. and that was AFTER a three month treatment of Lupron to shrink it. I was told it was about the size of a large grapefruit. I can't beleive I had something like that growing in me for so long. Well, it's gone now.....I was just a little surprised when I read the op report.

Fatigue???????????????

Ok, so I start yawning around lunchtime and I don't stop. I could barely keep my concentration in our staff meeting today and I was leading it! LOL

OK, so fatigue seems to be par for the course at 9 weeks. Guess we need to be cautious ladies not to overdo it too soon. I think I'm gonna go back and slap that dr for making it sound soooooooo easy. Oh yeah, you'll be fine to go to Italy in six weeks, oh sure he says! Hah!

Ok, so am I ranting just a bit. I'm actually quite frustrated cause we have a operational review from local head office in a couple of weeks and then our accreditation the next week after that! Yikes!

And I'm too tired for all of it!
