My doc did the same thing. Never really found out why but glad to see it wasn't only me!! LOL!

I had a total hysterectomy 5 weeks ago. Surgery and recovery has not been bad at all, and I was off prescription pain meds after 2 weeks. I've been easing back into my activities. As for driving, we are all so different! Although I am doing more around the house and taking small trips to the store, I am not driving yet. I also had breast reconstruction at the same time, so I need to be careful of straining my breast muscles. Both my surgeons told me to let my body be my guide.

I'm very grateful for the Hysterectomy Checkpoints. It has been a wonderful guide and answered some questions I never thought to ask! I had my gyno checkup yesterday and forgot to ask about what exercises I could do, when today's Checkpoints came and had an entire list of safe exercises. Thanks a lot!

Val, 65 and ready to move on!
