I hope that no one takes offense, and that it IS helpful for a lot of people to hear the good news.

And no matter how good (or bad) we are all feeling physically - this group is still strongly needed for emotional support. This whole process would have been a nightmare without this group of wonderful women.
Well said and yes it makes total sense. I totally agree with you. I know pre-surgery it was nice to read some positive stories. I to visited the post-op board looking for posts exactly like this.

I honestly didn't mean anything by my above post other than I just wasn't feeling "it" just yet. Now that I look at it I can see how it may have come off as rude. I truly apologize as my intentions were not meant to be rude.


Please keep all of the positive and not so positive information coming ladies. It's certainly been very helpful for me personally. I am finding that I am spending far more time on this website post-op then when I was awaiting surgery. It's been very helpful for me having a place to come for support and look for some answers that I am not getting elsewhere. Thank you again...

Kat,
See what positive things people had to say about your post? We need balanced views out here. If the recovered lot run off dancing into the daisy fields who would be there for the crying newbees? I am just so grateful to this website that I plan to stick around to offer hope and encouragement when I can. You have already done so by sharing your recovery,. Don't worry you are not jinxed with the BM- I shall send some good "poopy" energy your way.

I too have had a great recovery so far and i had a TAH on 03/04 kept ovaries but preop I was so scared after reading stories about the difficult recovery and pain. I almost backed out of the surgery til after summer but I am so glad I went forward. It was no walk in the park by any means but I listen to my body, dont over do it but I have had little pain and felt really good walking every day. I know that everyone is different and i may have a relapse tomorrow but so far so good! The best part is I dont have the pain I had before surgery

I'd love to see the forum leaders sticky this one to the top, or start a thread that could be set with a sticky for the happy success stories. Then the ladies that are having a rough time could skip it, but those looking ahead could see not everyone suffers so much.

I've been a moderator and participant for years on arthritis forums and it is the same situation there. New people look through the forum and are terrified because all they see is pain and suffering. I'm as guilty as the next person, because I tend to get too busy for forums when I'm feeling well. I try at least once a week to pop in and send emails to all the new people telling them about my experiences. It is hard though because the real regulars on the forums are the ones that have failed to respond to treatment and are in constant pain. When I pop in and talk about how great my life is, I feel like I am rubbing it in the face of those that haven't had a great day in years. My heart breaks for them, and I know they wouldn't wish their situation on their worst enemy, but the fact still remains, it is hard for them to hear the success stories.

So let's try to keep this one bumped up!

i had a perfect recovery,,,so very easy. i try to stay around to let women know its possible. i always get the feeling that i am not very well liked and sometimes sound outspoken about my choices, but i think women that come here need to see success stories, see what choices they have and have hope for the same type of recovery i had. if all i read were stories of complications when i got here, i dont know that i would have been able to have my surgery. so i too will stick around and just hope that i help a few people along the way.

Wow - what great comments and now I am glad that I posted what I did! I remember reading thru the post-op comments prior to surgery and scared myself silly by some of the stories. Of course, each of us is different and heal differently but I must say, some of the issues that I read beforehand terrified me. I haven't dared read the posts about sexual dysfunction, nor do I plan too. I will cross that bridge when I come to it.

I'm glad to hear that some of us had an easier road to recovery and wish the very best to those that are on that road to recovery. I think when it is all said and done, we all share in the thought of being free of years of our uterus (and other parts) dicating our life. I can't wait until summer when I can wear white pants and not have to constantly worry that I have had 'an accident'. The years of constant bleeding, abnormal PAP's and cramping are behind me - and my new life will be free of all that hardship.

thanks for all the comments - made me feel much more at ease that nobody was offended.
