many sergeries

November 1999 I had my tubes tied. With in 6 MOs I was having heavy legs and loss of strength in my legs (my ovaries had fallen back into my bowels and formed mega amounts of scar tissue). On may 2 2001 I had partial hyst. In a couple of months I was having lots of pain and cramping in my vag and lower abdomen lots of confusion and fear. Switched DRs because original DR suggested to watch it for more months (maybe it will go away). New DR found a hole that lead from my vag into my abdomen and abnormal tissue and thought it might be cancer. Next sergery (mar 16, 10 mos after original hyst), lots of scar tissue and adhesions were removed the abnormal tissue was probably part of my cervex that had been left in and removed my ovaries. The leg circulation had started to return and I was having alot of vag pain and pulling and trouble with my bowels and a lump on my stomach. So back to the Dr I go to find out that I have a Hernia of my original hystr incision and that my vaginal cuff had folded over and adhered to my colon and bladder. SOO, I had another sergery 9 mos later wich was Dec. 13 2002. That was 2 mos ago. Right after the sergery I began to have alot of back pain and my current problems are that because of all the sergeries I have to go to physical therapy to get some muscle strength in my abdomin also my pelvic muscles and that it will balance out my back because it is all connected. I started that today. Call me paranoid but I am just a little bit jumpy. This whole thing started because I had adneomyosis and was bleeding all the time. I also had a double uterous (birth defect) before sergery. At present I am using alot of vitimins and that natural progesterone and am not having a ton of hot flashes. I get a little moody kind of on a cycle. And I am having to adjust my diet ( I guess it's natural with menupause to not process food as eficiently). I am not sure where to post but would sure like to here something positive, like Life is like fine wine It gets better with age. Maybe someone out ther can relate?

Welcome! Yes I can relate. My hysterectomy was my 5th surgery in 4 years for female related problems. I've had 4 additional surgeries since my hyst.

I've recently had to majorally alter my diet also. It seems like my digestive system just isn't working the way it used to.

Hopefully the physcial therapy will help to get your abdominal muscles back in shape. Taking vitamins should help you get your stamina back.

I found with each surgery that I've had it's taken me a bit longer to recover. Surgery is hard on the body and it needs time to recover.

I'm still here, and I'm still fighting. My life and my health may not be what it was 15 years ago but I am surviving.
