    Hi all hope everyone is doing well?
    Thought id check in. Back to work for a few hours today felt good back driving and resumed sex life with no issues. Surgeon cleared me to fly have a hernia but no need for op as yet, muscle popping through my appendix scar but this will heal in time. Hope all you ladies are on the mend take care xx aussiescottiej

  • Hi purplequeen
    Im so sorry your experience has been so bad. Have you gone into menopause? Think maybe you need to speak to someone. Im 7 weeks today TAH bilateral salpengectomy and tried sex for the first time today and although orgasm wasnt as strong it was nice but extremely nervous. Here if you want to talk. I dont feel like the normal me still…[Read more]

    Thanks Vicki
    I agree with you on the process. I have 3 parts of my scar that are puckered and that’s where my infections are i have folliculitus because of the skin folds. Antibiotics are doing great now though. I hadnt even thought of gel etc. Hope it helps. If it turns out to be the hernia they’ll do general and yes will be nowhere near as…[Read more]

Choice is mine if i drive or not cleared for sex if i feel up to it. If it is a hernia then will be in for an op to have mesh ifitted! Will update everyone next week.

    Hope the…[Read more]

  • Hi kltunny

  • aussiescottiej replied to the topic April Flowers 2016 in the forum April 1 year, 6 months ago

    Hi VickiT im not in until Friday after my recent gp visits its clear that they have no idea so im just going to wait. Im pretty sure it is an adhesion with the way the pain is. Its very frustrating isnt it especially this late in the recovery i hope your antibiotics help but unless theyre sure of what it is not sure if it will sounds like you need…[Read more]
