TAH on May 24, 2002

Hi Ladies,

On May 24, 2002 I had a TAH. Having suffered with three fibroids the size of grapefruit, an enlarged ovary, endo. and very heavy periods I can't believe how good I feel after only four and a half months. I actually can't tell I ever had surgery. The first two weeks after my surgery were really bad. I was so sick. I couldn't eat anything but saltines and water or it would come right back up. Believe me throwing up with an eight inch incision across your stomach is not fun. I lost 14 lbs from all of that. I haven't put any of the weight back on and it is really frustrating because none of my clothes fit.

Five days after my surgery I had my first hot flash. Wow what a rush. I told my Doctor when I went to have my staples removed and he put me on Premarin 0.3 mg right away. Well four months later and no more hot flashes and no more mood swings. My husband is totally amazed at how happy I am all the time. Actually I'm amazed too. Nothing bothers me.

I can't speak for everybody, but having the TAH was the best decision I ever made.

So happy to hear from you about your speedy recovery. It is nice when new princesses can hear from someone who didn't have a lot of problems.

Have you lost too much weight? If not new clothes are always nice.

Hoping and praying for you continued healthy new life!!!!
