    Hi all….for any of you that had the full hysterectomy with the ovaries out…what have you noticed and are you or have you done anything about it? I have I flab shelfor above my scar so am a bit weird looking! It was a rounded even tum before. My hair has thinned and cellulite has flourished! I do believe thesee latter things are down to no…[Read more]

    Hi Mackem68…I’ve been googling…. vaginal atrophy…that’s mine I’m sure…have a google see what you think…I’m hoping the HRT (elleste duet 2mg) may sort it out but only hitting week 2 of it. Was on oestrogel (1 pump a day on each thigh) for a while and it seems to have been since I came off this and embarked on HRT (so a week or so of…[Read more]

    Like someone else mentioned I also stopped getting notifications, I’m not sure why..

    Anyway, shocked to realise BM is the topic as I too have been the best in my whole 45 years until about 2 weeks ago…I had put the unbelievable improvement mostly down to ground linseed as well as the op and had become a bit lax but not enough for the problem to…[Read more]

    HI all I saw a really good selection of colouring books (for adults) at The Works btw.

    I got firm control pants from M&S and my nurse thought they were sexy – was she flirting?!?!? lol!!

    Hi all…I’m okay…I have just tried to be too clever and thinking walking straight and tall, carrying shopping, usual speed…oh, not been caught out before so hopefully it will subside

    I’ve had a day of listening to music from my youth to perk me up (if anyone has watched carshare, it was like that but at home and alone!! I have a very…[Read more]

    Oh dear what have I done….regarding discharge – I am 5 weeks post op today. In all this time I have a pale brown vvlight discharge…I have done 2 walks today and now have a true red discharge. Not a flood just light but red :/

  • I do feel the little effort I made in the last month helped my recovery as people do not believe how well I appear to have done. I worked on my arms, back and legs but mostly arms as I read many posts about how much they are used to avoid tummy strain. Good luck all.

  • Milled linseed – flaxseed – is the way to go for ANYONE suffering with this. Not had a problem for 4 weeks now after 40 years!! Can definitely say it works for me

  • corinne14470 replied to the topic May Minions 2015 in the forum May 3 years, 10 months ago

    Thanks Cariad that sounds perfect!!
    Niknak do not dismay; people do seem to recover different but taking each day just breaks it down and I’m glad your pain is subsiding. I’m 3weeks post op and have had it easy to date but it has changed in this time also. Good luck with clips out tomorrow. I had a suture and was surprised what relief it’s removal…[Read more]

    ITCHING!!! Hi everyone…I got the itch…my tummy area not just the scar and if I scratch, even a bit, it then feels raw so I’m going to seek some cooling aloe vera I think. Has anyone else had this? Is it a sign of the nerve endings mending do you think (google) or what?

    Nothing else to report: loving the big knickers too, I wear a tum band…[Read more]

  • corinne14470 replied to the topic May Minions 2015 in the forum May 3 years, 10 months ago

    I took my lovely stockings off on the 2nd day in hospital. I think it must me a medical injoke having you wear them for so long lol ;p

  • corinne14470 replied to the topic May Minions 2015 in the forum May 3 years, 10 months ago

    Yes please Nikki. I’d be useless with patches they’d end up the car or worse, my 6 year old!

  • corinne14470 replied to the topic May Minions 2015 in the forum May 3 years, 10 months ago

    Hi all…lots of changes going on I see. I think I’ve blocked the email from hysterectomy Association or something as I no longer get subscribed threads to so a bit of a shock that I need a few hours to catch up on the 20 pages or so you’ve all been sharing and chatting about May minions!! I thought everyone seemed to have gone really…[Read more]

    I have the same. I think the pain/ache covers up the full bladder sensation so don’t worry. Im still peeing enough! It appears i have an infectiin as sample showed blood and pus. I have an appt at docs on thursday for a check and results will be back. I just rang gyno assessment team as was concerned but she said not to worry. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • corinne14470 replied to the topic May Minions 2015 in the forum May 3 years, 10 months ago

    Sleepystar and elsapelle – hope recovery gets in track now.
    I’ve just got my follow up appt 21st september. I’m surprised it’s so far away but had no idea really. Anyone else got one through?

  • corinne14470 replied to the topic May Minions 2015 in the forum May 3 years, 10 months ago
