Adenocarcinoma of Cervix

I had a TAH,BSO and Pelvic Lymph Node Removal on 6 June
Im doing ok now, Have a swelly belly, and still abit tender below the scar, but very numb on pubic bone and groin area, where nerve endings were cut. I realise why Im suffering these things
I really would like to talk to someone who is or has experienced
the same. When will I be back to normal ? or will I ever ?
I also have to be careful as I could easily end up with Lymphodeana in my legs.
Anyway sorry to sound like a whinger, I dont mean to.Would just
like to be normal , not just for my sake but the kids,and my husband, I get sick of saying, " I cant do that yet" of Becareful

Hope to Hear from some of you real soon.

Hugs to you Helen , hmmm a fellow aussie in cancer concerns. x x You will definately get back to normal. I promise. It does take time though. Pamper yourself. And lots of rest. Do you require any further treatment? Lymphodema , I dont know much about . I did read some where that wearing support stockings can help some people. Have you spoken to your gyn/oncologist ? Please dont feel like you are a whinger, thats what we are here for, always . You take care , love always x x

Hi Helen, I had the same surgery, only my Dr. called it a "radical hysterectomy". Being from the States, I'm not quite sure what a whinger is! But....I'm gonna guess and say that you don't sound like one to me!

I am 5 1/2 mos. post-op now, and can honestly I say I feel great, for the most part. My incision is still a little numb, I still get an occasion twinge, and something that struck me funny this summer is that when I would lay out in the sun in my pool, in my one piece suit (two piece suits have been a part of the past for me ), my incision was really sensitive to the sun in that it would feel like it's burning.

It can take up to a year for complete recovery from this major surgery. Of course, this is only my experience, so if you continue to have concerns, please discuss with your Doctor.

hi, It does take some time to get back to normal but eventually you do get there , well, most of the way anyhow and the rest you learn to live with. I had my hyst in 1999 and I developed lymphedema in the past couple of years and I was given the stockings and exercises to do. I get it and then is goes and I think I had it 3 times in the past couple of years. I also had external and internal radiation and that didn't help matters. I also have a numb belly along the incision line and I had a c-section with a bikini cut and then the hyst with a vertical cut and so most of my belly is pretty numb but I got used to that. Some of the feeling came back but I don't think the rest will. Sometimes I get very sharp pains around it also but they don't last long and it is from nerve damage. Take lots of time for yourself and don't do too much until you feel ready. I will be thinking of you during your recovery.

Hi Helen,

It is so hard to have to wait till all is healed isn't it? I know, but it does get better over time. How long is hard to say, it really varies from person to person. Some ladies begin to really feel more like their "normal" self in the third month, others have a bit longer. It seems that everyone heals at different rates, so although I know its hard to be patient, that's really all you can do to allow your body to heal properly.

I'm trying to remember back and I think I really began feeling pretty good around that same time frame. The numbness slowly went away until one day, it was just gone, same thing with the pinching feeling I had. I'm now just passed 16 months post op and feel pretty good, no lingering after effects, from the surgery portion anyway.

Please don't feel like you're whining, you most certainly aren't. I would also recommend that if anything continues to bother or concern you, get it checked out by your physician.

Take care, pamper yourself and try to hang in there. Please let us know how you are doing when you can.

I just wanted to add that most of us felt so much better at 3 mos postop, then at 6mos post op you really feel good, and it seems to keep getting better!! You will have to really be careful with what you do for a good while though. Even after being released from your doctor, if you do something and feel a pull or a pain, then stop! There have been many of us who have overdone even at 6mos post op and needed to take a day to rest. Before you know it, a full yr has passed and you will think that it flew by!

Hi girls , just thought I would let you all know that a whinger is some one who complains. Probably the same as whining. We aussies do say some funny things sometimes. xx
