fibroids growing?

How do you feel at three weeks post-op? Mine will also be done
abdominally. Glad to hear you lost weight also. Was the
operation was you expected? Thanks for your input

fibroids growing?

Hi Fran,
At three weeks post op I feel on top of the world! I really think I made the right decision, before I had the surgery I had overwhelming fatigue which I put down to a busy lifestyle. The monthly pain was excrutiating which is what took me back to the doc. When they did a repeat scan they found that one of the 20 or so fibroids had grown dramatically hence the hyster.

When the doc opened me up, he discovered that I also had extensive endometriosis and adhesions - it was a mess he said.

The surgery was really OK - not a lot of pain as such after the first day or two, I know others are not as lucky. I have really felt good from 2 weeks, however I have continued to do the right thing re resting, not lifting etc. I do not nap during the day anymore and I've been doing some work from home this week (school reports - fascinating stuff!).

This site has really saved my sanity.

Keep in touch and let me know how you get on.
