Total Hyster 12-22-09

Had surgery Dec 22, stayed 2 days then home for Christmas eve. I didn't miss any holiday gatherings, I went Christmas Eve and Christmas day. I just went slowly and when I got there sat in Lazy Boy and let the family take care of me...what a nice time. Daily I am napping and trying to eat light as this Swell Belly has me down and thinking I gained 50 lbs. I honestly can say there is minimal pain but this rolling gas and big belly is the pitts. Getting up and down is also a challenge but once up its o k. I know when I do too much as the abdominal incision starts burning so down I go. I am concerned about HRT but will see how I feel. I don't want to get wrinkly and dry...what is everyone else thinking about this?

I look at it this way. If I would have opted not to do the surgery I would have been on birth control for the next few years to help control the symptoms. Doctor sent me home on a birth control pill with progesterone to "burn off " any remaining Endo. So not much has changed for me.
