Hysterectomy dates Mar 17-Mar 24,2008

Oh Yes indeed I am tender to the touch! I don't have an issue with cramps, sorry to hear you do. I read that if you kept your cervix and ovary's, as I did that you may experience 'mini' periods? I believe however that referred to slight bleeding, not cramps?
Good luck!

Sorry, I should've added-- they removed the cervix, too. I haven't really heard of anyone keeping their cervix; my doctor made it seem as if all hysterectomies include removal of the cervix along with the uterus.
I am not going to have periods anymore, not even mini ones.

This is right around the time when my period would be do, but honestly I never suffered from menstrual cramps except maybe a brief time as a teenager.
I also don't understand why my abdomen is so tender-- just touching lightly hurts, and now even water hitting it in the shower feels uncomfortable. The lower right side is especially painful. Yesterday there was a point where I had such a sharp pain there, I almost doubled over.
Anyone else having similar pain?

Hello-

My abdomen is very tender-- just touching lightly hurts, and now even water hitting it in the shower feels uncomfortable. I notice also, that as I lay down at night, I sleep with a heating pad over my soarness. The next morning I the pain is a little better. I hope that helps.

Senji A couple of nights ago I had very bad pain in my right side. Felt I had done damage but had tried to walk that day. Took pain killers and I got some relief. Had a SUB TAH and ovaries tubes etc removed also a fibroid from vagina.

Do y'all sometimes feel this will NEVER get better and stay that way? I am so tired of the roller coaster ride let me off already! My DH keeps saying "you just had major surgery", as if I didn't know that. I was there! I guess I am just being difficult right now. I am having rebound headaches from all the pain meds it's a catch 22 that I am not enjoying at all. OK I will stop ranting now. I am so glad some of you are having great flawless recovery (really I am!) Pray for the rest of please! LOL

Well I went to the luncheon today, and I just loved seeing everyone, but I think I made a bad judgement call. I went to get my meds at the pharmacy (no wait) then had the car washed (didn't move from the car) and then to the luncheon, I went to visit and sat about an hour visiting, then the luncheon was at a differnt building and I ended up sitting in a metal foldup chair for about 2 hours, I finally got up and went to the back to stand and then it was over and I left. I came home and went to use the bathroom and I was bleeding, light colored but enough for concern. I called the DR. and he hasn't called back. The nurse wanted me to come in tomorrow, but she said lets wait and see what he has to say. So I am waiting to hear. I will let you know what he says. I am hoping it was just to much sitting in that hard chair but that doesn't make sense. I will be 4 weeks postop on Monday.

Recovery Progress Reports for Hysterectomy dates Mar 17-Mar 24,2008

I just want to ask, WHY oh WHY do I feel worse then better lately! I can't believe this trend, I felt better a 10 days ago, or last week.
I am more sore, swell easier and feel more fatigued. I am more sensitive to the touch and my tummy 'jiggles' when I walk, that hurts too. Darn all I want to do are little projects quietly sitting at a desk, ie taxes or a Ukranian Egg decoration craft but I don't dare start the way I feel because its all sitting at a table.
Is this the worst position? Don't get me wrong, I am up and around, its not like all I do is sit, far from it! I'm normally a pretty active person.
Its to the point where I feel bad answering when my husband, daughter or friend asks 'how are you"?, I don't like to complain and it seems like the only honest answer is...'Dang it I feel lousy!" wah wah wah. I find I just change the subject so I don't have to complain. Problem is they are all too smart for me.
I think I may call the doctor tomorrow if I don't feel better? Is anyone else here?
Looking for answers, Bonny

I too feel worse today. I think it is because I may have a day where I do more than the others and then I feel awful the next day and then better the next. It feels like a roller coaster.

Yes ... I am feeling worse lately, although I think it might be tied to the weather..we got another foot of snow today! I just don't want to get up and go outside in yet another snow storm, plus driving in bad weather makes me nervous since I just started driving again. I was off the meds, but went back on them yesterday and today. My TAH surgery was March 18th and I originally thought that I would need 2 weeks recovery (ha ha), but now I'm not sure that 4 weeks will be enough. I was offered a job at the hospital while at my pre-op and accepted it. I gave my job of 4 years notice, but they might just release me since I haven't been there a month, so now I don't even know which job I'll be going to Monday! I wish I had agreed to one more week of off time.
Ladies, I hope that week 4 is better than week 3.
