things I didn't know

hello sisters,

I didn't know that the lymph nodes were taken from the thigh area. My doctor told me that they cut nerves as part of the surgery but the lymph node thing makes sense. My scar goes all the way down too. Fran I wonder when was your surgery done? Mine was Oct. 1st., funny that they found yours the same way as mine , with the polyps. Well we all have to hang in there and some day soon I hope we all feel much better. Happy Easter to all, Lori

I'm from Mass too! I'm having my radical hyst. on Wednesday and I was told by my GYN/Oncologist that I would have a catheter in for about a week as he is dissecting tissue, that is on the outside of the uterus and "anchors" on to the ureters, away from the ureters and the nerves would be disturbed and I would not have any sensation of voiding for about a week. I noticed that you mentioned you were still self-cathing. Is this also the reason why that you are self-cathing? He's also taking all the lymph nodes in the area.

Hi Gail!

I had a Rad/TAH without any bladder repair yep, that's why I'm self-cathing . My advice to you is to try and get up to walk as soon as you can. I know that once you have the surgery done you probably won't want to, but it is very important. I, unfortunately, wasn't able to get up to walk right away. My theory is that I would probably be able to relax "those" muscles a lil more should I have gotten more excerise those first couple of weeks. It's great that your doctor described what he is going to do during surgery...that's a plus.

Take care - feel free to email me.

BTW -- I live in the Worcester County area.

Hi Fran -

Sounds like you're doing great! You're right it does take time to heal...some more than others. Hope you make it at work is kind of drag how we can get soooo tired sooooo quickly. I am not experiencing any pain any more. I do get a lil emotional sometimes cause I *still* can't do the "deeds" on my own....but I will win *punch* !!

Take care ---
