2 1/2 weeks post TAH BSO

My periods have been very heavy and lasting 2 weeks. I told my dr about this in Dec 2011. Jan 2012 I had a D&C and Uterine abalation. The dr told me it had a 90% success rate. That was the beginning of my nightmare. I ended up having horrible abdominal pain, fevers, constant bleeding, and ended up with an infection in my uterus. Mid jan I had to have another D&C which completely undone the ablation. The pain and bleeding continued. I tried 3 different high dose progesterones and none of it worked. The doctor decided I needed an abdominal hysterectomy and he said he would try to save my ovaries. So feb 23 2012 a week after i turned 40 I had the surgery. When I awoke I found out my surgery lasted 3 hours and that he had taken my ovaries and that I had severe endometriosis and never knew it. The dr told me my uterus was enlarged and my ovaries had attached to my bladder. He said I was a train wreck. Here I am 2 and 1/2 weeks later, and I am so very sad, I am angry, Im lost. I dont feel like myself anymore. I burst out into tears at any second. Sex drive? I dont have one. Vaginal dryness is driving me crazy. I feel like this whole thing is my fault! I should have dealt with my periods! If i hadnt let him do the ablation I wouldnt be going through this now! I dont feel like a woman anymore, I feel like i am just exsisting. When I try to talk to my husband about it, he says "i love you, it will be ok, you will feel like your old self in no time". I dont feel anything like me....I feel empty. I dont know if its normal, or where to turn. I dont know if my sex drive will return, or how to make it happen. Im scared sex will painful now. Im scared I wont find me anymore. Am I out of my mind???

Re: 2 1/2 weeks post TAH BSO

2 1/2 weeks post-surgery and you're scared that you're out of your mind?

I wish I could give you a great big hug and tell you things will eventually get better. Because they will. It WILL take a while before you "get back to you". Just remember: you're not just your ovaries. They were just a piece of you - a small piece. Don't get hung up by it.
If you lost an eye, or another body part, I'm sure your husband would still love you (he sounds like a great guy, by the way).

Eventually sex will become "interesting" again. Took me about 5 months before...had one of THOSE dreams. (snicker)....and I woke up nice and.....snicker.

There are creams you can get for the dryness. Most work fine.

Huggs and xxxs to you.
