    Frankie, Just go and join in the discussion on the September 2017 page. We don’t update the surgery list after the end of the month – but anyone is welcome. You will find everyone supportive. I have taken a step back at present, but Julie the other moderator (juleskirk50) will help you if needed.
    I hope that your recovery is going well and that…[Read more]

    Good evening ladies.

    Good luck tomorrow Laura. Try to have a relaxing evening. As many others have said, waiting really is the worst part. You will soon be joining the others on the Done couch.
    Those on the Done Couch are doing well – just take it slowly and steadily – listen to your body & stop and rest when you need to.

    Hi Karen,
    Swelly belly comes and goes…..& is worse if you are doing too much. I used to think of it as an indication that I needed to rest more. You need to get plenty of rest to allow your internal wounds to heal strongly.
    During the day try to lie down for a while as this does help to ease it. I found my garden recliner useful for this -…[Read more]

    Good luck tomorrow Lynn.
    Amanda, accept all pain relief offered – that was the advice I was given by my brother who is an anaesthetist! Hopefully you will get home soon.

    Good evening,

    Good luck tomorrow Amanda. The waiting (which really is the worst part) is nearly over.
    Elizabeth, we will add you wherever you need to be! Meanwhile, feel free to join in anywhere – & enjoy your holiday. It is a good way to prepare for surgery – I spent 18 days in Tenerife then went in for my hysterectomy 4 days after my…[Read more]

    Hi Amanda,
    You will be assessed for your personal risk of blood clots. They try to get you mobile as quickly as possible (probably just a few steps round the bed or to the toilet). You will be given stockings to wear – ask how long you need to wear them. I had to wear them 24/7 for 6 weeks – I was allowed them off for 10 minutes each day to…[Read more]

  • Hi Sandi,
    You are not being a drama queen! You have had major surgery and physically & emotionally it takes time to recover.
    If your work involves lifting, you could ask for an occupational health assessment before your return. Many have a phased return to work – your GP should give you a fit not stating what you are fit to do. Be prepared…[Read more]

    Good luck for tomorrow Karina. You will soon be joining Karen on the Done couch.
    Try to have a relaxing evening.
    I am just waiting for visitors arriving – 2 of whom do not speak any English & my Mandarin Chinese is non existent! Will be an interesting few days…

  • What you are experiencing is not unusual. Some do find that it takes up to a year before they feel fully back to normal.
    It may be worth checking with your GP to see if you are anaemic.

    Good evening,

    Tania, I have added you to the September list. MissE I have put you in September as date to be confirmed & will update once you get a date – whether it is September, October…..

    Have a look at some of the monthly groups to get an idea of the preparation / recovery.
