10 days post op TAH and losing my mother

The last week and a half have been quite the challenge. 3 months ago I started spotting, which was strange because I am 58 and had been menopausal for 10 years. It worried me and my partner but we just did a wait and see. We are retired in Mexico and went back to US to visit family and a new grandbaby. I continued spotting and so after our 2 month visit the first thing I did was go to our wonderful Dr. here and she did a pap test, biopsy and sonar scan. Everything came back clean and I thought, great, it'll just end naturally. It continued until I found myself flooding in the night with large clots and we took off that morning straight to the doctor. She checked me out and said, there is no choice, emergency hysterectomy. We went the next morning to Guadalajara, which has wonderful hospitals. My doctor met us there and introduced me to the anaesthesiologist and surgeon and stayed through the surgery. The surgeon and anaest. visited me multiple times during my stay and the most difficult part was that no one spoke english and my spanish is struggling along. Meanwhile, I find out just hours after surgery that my mom (whom I had just visited in the US and was looking so great) had a stroke and was dying. Here I am, thousands of miles away, fresh from surgery and grieving. She passed away 5 days later, I was home then and it sure makes recovery so difficult. I'm hanging in there and today my loving partner is driving me a couple blocks over to our beautiful Lake Chapala that has a gorgeous smooth "boardwalk" with palm trees swaying and boats and I just need a fresh view. Still in a lot of pain but better every day. Had a bowel crisis at the beginning but now that is getting much better. Thanks for listening, ladies. I need this..love to you all.
