    Way to go on your walk Gina! I’m at 24 days today, I’ve just managed a little over a mile, but I’m on the couch now for sure! I had laparoscopic, so recovery may differ a bit. I’ve been doing a lot of small walks, not as good at long, but reach day I aim for a few more steps. I am sorry about the tea on the bed and that you had to lift your…[Read more]

    @katie72, hang in there, you are anything but pathetic, you have just undergone a major surgery and had an unfair amount of complications to boot! I think some of us (maybe just me) went into this surgery thinking we’d come out the other side kicking ass and taking names in a month, but that is just not the case, this surgery has brought me to my…[Read more]

    @jenlea, not a very warm welcome to the done couch! So sorry for all you’ve been through. I have not experienced a hematoma in that location. They did accidentally knick my bowels during surgery and caused a hematoma there which luckily enough they have monitored and I seem to be doing just fine. My total hysterectomy with salpingectomy and left…[Read more]

    @ginab, glad to hear you are feeling a little better, enjoy the time with your son!
    @valybobs, sounds like a beautiful day! I will try and get out for a walk to enjoy the sun today as well!
    @Rach74, 4 miles is amazing, now feet up and relax the rest of your day, must feel great!
    I’m doing pretty well, had a mini breakdown yesterday, woke up very…[Read more]

    Hello!
    @ginab, sending you a big gentle hug! As @valybobs said, you’ve gone through the worse, it will get better, promise! We are here for you, for anything! I wonder too about the allergy, I myself am also allergic to a ton of things after falling very ill a few years back. It took some time for them to figure out what was wrong, they thought it…[Read more]

    Greetings ladies!
    @valybobs, you sounds like you are doing great, keep it up! If you are day 20, that puts me at day 18 i believe, wow! Recovery has been many ups and downs for sure. I’ve had off and on spotting, though much lighter and more infrequent lately. I’ve started some exercise under guidance from my doctor and PT, started PT yesterday,…[Read more]

    Hello!!
    @valybobs, I am waiting for some lamb pics!! That sharp pain low in pelvis, I’ve felt that, scary, not sure what that is. They really went crazy in there, shook us all up! Sorry your allergies are popping up, I was staring at my yard thinking about that yesterday… It’s coming, typically my allergies are worse in Fall though.

    The results are in, I have a UTI, boo. I guess I’m off for another road trip to the pharmacy, sigh. On the bright side, I couldn’t take it, the only Summer clothes I had upstairs was a dress, so I shaved (well some what)!! I sat on the side of tub and I must say I was quite the careful contortionist, I think it may even qualify as yoga! Took a…[Read more]

    Good morning/afternoon ladies!
    I’m really struggling to wake up right now, it’s 10:20, you’d think that would be good, but didn’t sleep much last night, OH got called in at 11:30, which jokes me back awake even though he was pretty quiet. Then just about every hour had to get up to pee, it was awful, my bladder is doing exactly what everyone else…[Read more]

    @hopeful11, at day 8 I felt very different than I do today, I could barely move, I have felt a little better every day. We did have different surgeries, so try not to compare yourself too much as yours was very complicated and may take longer too heal from (my non medical opinion). There are so many variables in both surgeries and recoveries. I…[Read more]

    @nervousnow, sounds like a lovely day followed by a nice evening alone, ooh! I can’t relate with regards to the teen cleaning issues, my son has OCD, not terrible, he has actually improved, but it started years ago when I fell very ill and our home became a hospital. He is so funny about keeping his room clean and gets on the OH about how dirty…[Read more]

    Hello!
    The sun just came out, yeah! I actually just logged into work to run a couple reports and submit my timesheet, I’ve already got that itch to work again, but I’m holding off till next week. I’m day 11 today, had a good day yesterday, but ended probably doing a tad too much, we had to empty fridge as OH was a mess from long shift, so my son…[Read more]

  • Ixil19 replied to the topic April 2018 part 3 in the forum April 9 months, 3 weeks ago

    Having some issues posting, i edited it and it deleted it then I pasted it again and it said I already said that?? Sorry if there are two posts, but I can’t see any from me now.
    Hello! My day isn’t over yet and I think I’ve done pretty well.
    Internet guy came over, fixed the issue we think. Then, I washed a few dishes, rested on couch a bit,…[Read more]

  • Ixil19 replied to the topic April 2018 part 3 in the forum April 9 months, 3 weeks ago

    Good morning!
    This is my favorite thing about the time difference, I wake up to so many great posts!
    @freshstart, welcome and so glad to have you! I had a pounding headache in the beginning which I find related to eating and my pain medication, oxycodone, which was part of the reason I went off it so soon. I did have Tylenol last night btw, lots…[Read more]

    Hi @Carrie71,
    So good to see your post, was wondering how you were doing! Hugs back to you!

  • Ixil19 replied to the topic April 2018 part 3 in the forum April 9 months, 3 weeks ago

    Ok well my post was there, I edited it and then it disappears completely, I think copied it, here goes! Hello lovely ladies!!
    I lost you, for some reason I didn’t get the new postings even though I see my name there!
    I will try and catch up, sorry in advance for long posting.
    @nervousnow, you are doing amazing, can’t believe all you’ve done, I…[Read more]

    @rach74,
    I guess so, but I didn’t really think it was that big of deal until I realized how much of a fuss it has become. I only care of there is really a problem, I feel like I would know by now, you know, have a fever, etc, and I really do feel I am recovering, albeit slower than I wanted. I think you are right about it on levels, I ate some…[Read more]

  • Ixil19 replied to the topic April 2018 part 2 ……. in the forum April 9 months, 4 weeks ago

    Thanks @rach74,
    Does seem like a little spotting is normal.
    Sadly I’m not doing well today, felt good laying in bed much less gas, and less pain, but when I got up my legs felt like Jello, and now my whole body feels like that shaky weak. I’ve been trying to walk around the house to shake it off, just ate chicken soup in case it’s cause I’m not…[Read more]

  • Ixil19 replied to the topic April 2018 part 2 ……. in the forum April 9 months, 4 weeks ago

    Thank you @marie, will do! I have a scheduled call with the clinic tomorrow so I will be sure to bring it up then. Hugs, have a great evening!
