Re: Teallys Tourtured Tuppys

Nfreel, how are you managing sitting up so long at work? Have you still got your cushion? Remind me how many weeks post op you are. Do you feel you are back to normal mentally ? X x

Re: Teallys Tourtured Tuppys

Sazc, I'm at four weeks as of yesteday. Physically, it's not too bad, but a cushion with more padding would be better. Mentally I'm OK -- not quite to normal, but getting there.

The biggest problem I'm having now is with energy. I feel really good most of the time, but then at odd times and without warning, I'm instantly exhausted and don't think I can do another thing. It's not every day, but when it happens, I just need to do lie down and get a lot of sleep.

I also do have a heavy feeling in my pelvic area at the end of the day and only lying down for an extended period helps that. I'm sure that's swelling and it's uncomfortable, but not at all painful.

All that being said, I'm still VERY glad I had this surgery because the symptoms now are FAR better than what I was experiencing before, and it's definitely continuing to improve.

That's really good news. Gives us all hope. When I go back to work I'll be on my feet 8 hours . This makes me nervous but I don't think I'd be any better if I had a desk job. I managed 27 minutes sat up yesterday. It's like sitting on a cactus and gives me some ouch across bikini line. X x

Re: Teallys Tourtured Tuppys

Sazc, Mine was done laproscopically -- yours was done abdominally, right? I know from my hysterectomy that the abdominal thing is a lot harder to recover from -- it was six weeks before I was feeling at all normal after that.

And I don't have a lot of stitches in the perineum, a few, but mostly they're vaginal and internal, so that has an effect on my ability to sit for long periods. Though I do still shift from cheek to cheek and not sit straight up all that much.

Re: Teallys Tourtured Tuppys

(((Ladies)))) This thread is gradually shifting towards posts about surgery. Please keep surgery topics in the Pelvic Floor and Bladder Issues forum and keep this thread for light chatter.

Thanks for understanding.
