newbie looking to chat

Hi all! I have been checking out this site, and here I sit,,,chatting with you! I have had endometriosis for almost one year,,,and on 2/16 at 12noon,,,had a laparoscopic hysterectomy. Had just my uterus removed...doc said I still have endo but hopefully this will do the trick. Was suffering something awful before the surgery, cramps so bad that I would sit at my desk at work and,,only pain I have is from the surgery sites. Having odd twinges here and there,,,some inside vagina but am guessing it is normal. Yes,,,I am one week and two days post op and getting BORED! I have already watched two movies on my iPhone and knitted one scarf,, I have another started which will be done SOON,,making gifts for friends...

Question,,,how long before leaving the house? I have stepped outside and such but have not "gone anywhere" since I left the hospital....

Thanks for letting me chat!!

Re: newbie looking to chat

Welcome to the other side and welcome to this site. Yesterday was my 2 week and I had a lavh and my doc took everything due to lots of endo. I have been dealing with endo for over 12 years . Does your dr not worry your ovaries will still cause endo problems? My first week was a breeze but I must of over did it bc this last week I've had lots of pain. I go for my 2 week post op on tuesday so I have lots of questions. I wish u a speedy recovery

I went for coffee and dinner on the 2nd night out of hospital...I had to have surgery away from home so slow walked down the road for tea...since then I've gone out for walks most days and lunch a couple of times or coffee...just make sure you listen to your body and rest up when you get home...if it hurts stop! I am 10 days ahead of you all the best.
