Re: Still in pain

Hugs Katwoman - I'm here for you too!
So sorry about the cancer news - did they get it all or was it precancer? I'm not very religious but believe in the power of prayer and will pray for all of us. It is great to have someone to share feelings with because I am feeling "ashamed" - like I'm supposed to be smiling and happy all the time (especially for the daughter who's 23, married and busy with her own life.) Maybe guilty is a better word that ashamed. I think us women are good at carrying guilt even thought we know it is not something we brought on to ourselves, did to ourselves or can control. (Should heed my own words lol.)

Re: Still in pain

Carnationz, they said got it all stage one so I have to get checked every three months to make sure it didn't come back for the next 5 years after that then I can say iam cancer free. I understand about the shame part cause I know I was lucky but I wanna live this life that I got a 2nd chance at but because of the pain and everything else its making that hard to do. Don't feel guilty iam sure you are there for your daughter as much as you can.

Re: Still in pain

Do/Did any of you have little prickling sensations in your abdomen? I get these every once in awhile and think it is like my insides healing or nerves coming back to life???
Katwoman - my day has been get up at 7 say goodbye to hubby go back to sleep until 10:30. Get up, eat breakfast feel fine. Noon went for shower and that's where I get played out. I am always tired after a shower. In the shower the spray on one part of my abdomen hurts - and I think if that hurts - I can't imagine the ultra sound. Run the water hot as I can on my lower back to try and ease what I think is muscle strain - back feels good but in leaning over my stomach pulls and hurts. I'm sitting here typing now (2 p.m.) and just had lunch and my stomach is full of those little pin pick pains. Only work I did today was empty dishwasher and half load the top. Don't feel like I could do another thing. Also feel some dizziness from time to time - passes - nothing serious - but anyone else get that? It could be from HRT or pain meds or worry or or or ..........

Re: Still in pain

Carnationz, sounds like we live the same life. About the shower I can't even wash or shave my lower legs cause I can't bend over. I also get tired very easy and can't even stay up to go to a movie. And I don't take HRT .

Re: Still in pain

Katwoman - she may have had a laparscopic (sp - don't know the abbrev.) I hope she is ok and does fine and it isn't too soon.
You said you are going out - I have only been out to the dr or a quick in and out of a store all with my husband. I have not done any driving (well I haven't driven in 6-7 mos because of the pain/pain killers before. Worried I'll forget how!) I don't like to walk but haven't even tried walking outside. I will walk inside and have the treadmill set up but haven't got on it yet. (No - I wasn't on it before either...........hmmm.)
Do you have the pin pricks too?
And nothing is wrong with YOU!!

Re: Still in pain

Katwoman - are you having hot flashes? I had 15 real bad ones in 12 hrs (both ovaries out) so decided I needed to try it. You might not be a candidate since the cancer but I was wondering if you had them and what you do for them.
