    Hi Shaster, just wanted to send to you after your post. I had my hysterectomy last May, similar circumstances with high risk cervical cells & was safest option, also had my ovaries left as older than you but nowhere near menopause. I also felt a huge sense of loss after. Think this op is sometimes a relief in a weird way for all the ladies who…[Read more]

    Hi ladies,
    Had my op 1st May, so dropping in to say it does all get easier! As valybobs (who wrote me the loveliest, helpful message soon after my surgery by the way) says, much more normal as you head to that 6 week mark. Suddenly found didn’t keep needing so many rests & energy just improved. Having said that, am now couple weeks back @ work,…[Read more]

    Hi Gilly,
    So sorry to hear about your stressful day, sure your husband will get lots of fuss in the care home when they realise what’s going on. I had my surgery start of May, also for extensive pre cancerous cells, like you it was a recommendation not a choice so I feel for you. I chose to do it as have a young family & like you with your…[Read more]

    Evening ladies,
    I am 6 weeks post LAVH today & have really started to feel better last few days. Main issue for me was tiredness, pain was no worse than period pains after initial bit & think most of you have already dealt with worse! I had no packing & almost no bleeding at all. Catheters tend to come out the morning after surgery to prevent…[Read more]

    Hi all you June ladies,

    Had my laproscopic surgery 5 and a half weeks ago, & despite some complications & a return trip to hospital it wasn’t that bad at all. The fretting & over active imagination prior to hospital was by far the worst bit. I had nothing but great care & understanding throughout from the nurses & doctors.

    SuzeB hospital was…[Read more]

    Hi all,

    Jenlea please be careful, totally get the guilt but don’t make yourself unwell by overdoing it. Also, have you checked that you’re insured to drive? My insurers were okay with me driving as consultant advised, which was 3-4 weeks post op (bearing in mind I had laparoscopic) sorry to bring it up, but I don’t want you to end up with any…[Read more]

    Hi Natalie,
    welcome to the group. Hope you’ve had your scar checked out and been reassured by now.

    Hi Sarahmee,
    Glad you’re home ok. Agree dogs very good therapy; my little terrier x has been squashed up next to me giving me the sad eyes for days and hasn’t jumped on my sore bits once! Your 5 bean chilli made me chuckle, who’d have thought…[Read more]

    Thanks hopeful11 and Alicia, feeling bit pathetic, sore and weepy this evening so nice to see your messages and feel bit less alone. Sure will bounce back to my usual self soon, just having a little pity party! Katie xx

    Hi all,
    So, not been posting as ended up back in hospital last week with obstructed bowel. Vomited for 12 hours, then couldn’t really move at which point hubby called an ambulance. Then had 3 days in hospital with nasogastric tube, everything iv & resting my stomach. All pretty unpleasant, especially being sick & unable to keep any painkillers…[Read more]

  • Katie 72 replied to the topic May 2018 in the forum May 11 months, 2 weeks ago

    Hopeful11, think cleaner sounds like an excellent idea. Am already noticing the difference in my house & only 4 days post op! Agree if it makes you happy money well spent.

    Hi sarahmee, welcome to our little club. I am a nurse specialist but knew zilch about all this & asked everyone to treat me the same as anyone else so I didn’t miss getting all…[Read more]

    Hi all, made it back home yesterday pm. Didn’t manage to get out 24 hours post op as apparently needed to have a poop before I was ok to go! So 2 night stay instead. Has all gone fine, done as TLH with no issues @ all. I’ve had really good hospital care from everyone from nurses to anaesthetist & my lovely all female surgical team: just felt like…[Read more]

    Hi Ladies,

    Jenlea, really sorry to hear about your week & all your stresses. I’m sure your op will be fine, but if you have worries speak to your pre-operative team: my original date fell on the anniversary of my friend dying & I just couldn’t face it. They were really helpful & I got another date not long after.

    Hi Sarah, I’m due TLH tomorrow,…[Read more]

    Hi there,

    posting for first time to add my name to May’s list, due surgery on 1st. Originally supposed to be April, but cancelled so been a bit of a wait and worrying in the meantime. FYI, any ladies reading this who can’t log on, it’s taken about 2 weeks to sort my log in: a very nice lady called Linda has been emailing me to help so would…[Read more]
