Re: How was your day?

Hi ladies hope your day had been good to ya...
I've been feeling blah don't know if my hormones are acting up or what but I've been feeling jealousy of my husband and this never was an issue before I get jealous if he talks to women not all women but a few that we see daily at our kids sports place. It's driving me crazy and I get upset at him from one minute to the next. Don't get me wrong he's not doing anything but being polite and friendly but it bugs the crap out of me... What is happening to me I was never this way before and we've been married for 17 years...

Y777 hey girl, maybe its the fact that we had a hysterectomy and you feel less of a women " but that is in no way true" we are just as sexy as everyone else. Your hubby was probably nice to them before but you didn't notice. Don't let that upset you

Please click the link below and pay special attention to the section on "How do you prepare for Shoulder Surgery". The last item says "Stop smoking at least six to eight weeks prior to surgery as smoking delays wound healing. Smokers are also more likely to have breathing problems during surgery."

It's very important to be completely honest with your doctor.

Re: How was your day?

Christinatas - you are funny girl! Did you go check out the link Catherine sent? I agree - I'm a former smoker and I always had to tell them honestly how much I smoked - it really is important to your well being -especially under anesthetic!
Y777 - I am thinking that jealousy is part of the way we are feeling. Not that we are less of a woman, but just that we are feeling blah after surgery and anyone else looks better! I have had the odd pang myself - especially one night when my husband had to respond to an emergency call at work. (He was back in 20 mins.) This might sound ironic but it's not that I really feel less of a woman - I feel less of a person because I'm feeling like such a burden on him. I think if I was in his shoes I'd want to run a million miles especially when I cry. But he's been here 31 years and we've been through surgeries, hard times financially, and good times - and - we are both still here. So I think your feelings are normal! Try to remember "this too shall pass." (But I wish it would all hurry up and pass! lol!) HUGS!

Re: How was your day?

Y777 - you want to know what I am secretly mad at my husband for? Being the man and not having to go through this! And that comes and goes depending on my mood! Then I think about how loving and caring he is and how much he's done for me - used 2 1/2 weeks of his vacation time to sit at home and watch me sleep, cry, moan, ***** - I figure if he was really interested in someone else - he'd be long gone and who'd blame him? I even asked him once if he was going to leave and he quoted, "For better for worse, in sickness and in health." So I know it's just my feelings, hormones, aches and pains and - my grief at losing my uterus - all talking. This isn't a sliver we had pulled out of our finger! If your hubby was interested in her he wouldn't be helping you! Let's both (all) try to be a little kinder to ourselves - (and when I do that I'll probably be kinder to him too. After all - he's man - he can't fold towels right, load the dishwasher MY way................ you get the point :-)

Re: How was your day?

yeah,i agree w/carnationz-dont let yr emotions run amuck right now.its not fair for you or yr hubby.i told mine i'd be too expensive to get rid of.try not to say or do things you'll regret right now.i know i have said things to mine that if he would've said to me,i dont think i'd still be speaking to him.i try to think before i act but its really hard cause i will say things out of turn,especially to him.
i am doing my own non-smoking thing and i am getting things under control.i am doing very good in this aspect.i would rather just quit cold turkey but i am doing quite well.going to primary care dr tomorrow and i am gonna ask for some kind of medicine to help.i cannot take wellbutrin or chantix so hopefully dr will have something else that can help me.but its really not cravings,its nervousness and depression for me...
