back to work

I had tah/bso on 11-4 due to fibroids and post menopausal bleeding. I had spinal block with general. Woke up with no pain or grogginess! My nurse would come every now and then with toradol for any breakthrough pain while the block wore off. I was doing so well that my wonderful Dr let me go home the next evening. I was sent home with percocet and ibuprofen. I have had some pain but it was well controlled with my pain pills. I did develop a hematoma near my incision but it is shrinking so we won't have to do anything about it.
At my 2 wk appt Dr put me on premarin which has helped a lot. I've been following Dr orders and resting, walking, etc.
I went back to dr yesterday for my 4 week visit and he said I was healing well and could resume all activities but wait 2 more weeks for sex.
I get to go back to work Monday! Just half days next week then full days after that.
My Dr is so caring and wonderful! My family has been so supportive and helpful during this time. Thankful that everything went as planned!

Re: back to work

Great news! I had mine Monday, and took off 2 weeks for work. If needed, I can take more time off. Hoping I won't need it though. I am fine today, with my pain pills, and even let a little gas out....haha. That, for me, has been the hardest, is the dang gas pains!
