  • Hello ladies

    I hope you don’t mind me gatecrashing your lovely group – I have hopped over from the February Group to give some moral support.

    I am 9 weeks post-op today after a Total Abdominal Hysterectomy with vertical scar and am now feeling pretty much back to normal and even beginning to forget I have had the op at times, so I often need to…[Read more]

    Good evening ladies

    Well, just when I thought all was going well – I’m now on doctors orders to rest…rest…and rest some more! On Wednesday I reached my target of walking 1 mile, having built this up slowly over 2.5 weeks – then on Thursday I woke up with a constant sharp pain to the left of my belly button. Painkillers brought no relief. All…[Read more]

    Hi @Mrs_C, I’m so sorry to hear about your Dad, am thinking of you at this sad time.

    @Mutti – great news ref your op – having to wait til August would have been horrendous!

    I’ve been to see my GP this morn as I have had a sharp niggly pain for the last 36 hours and it’s a new pain and I’m not getting any relief when taking painkillers. He…[Read more]

    Hi @Marie, I’m pleased you had a better night – definitely fairy steps for you today – you don’t need to do anything more than loo trips and resting. Definitely grab a 3rd night if you’re able to – that’s exactly what I did and I was so pleased i did – you know when you’re ready to be discharged.

    Walking properly at 3 weeks seems a mountain to…[Read more]

    Hi @KatieG, my op was through the NHS – I forgot until my appointment came through that the physiotherapist had mentioned a post-op group session.

    The leaflet I received from the hospital is entitled “Physiotherapy Exercises for Gynaecology Patients” – there is an email address if anyone wants to request an electronic copy:…[Read more]

    Hi, I agree with the lack of follow up – I asked if I would have a 6 week check up and was told they don’t need to see me again unless I have a problem – but as we have all said, how do we know if something is right or not (unless it’s giving us obvious symptoms like pain/discharge etc…).

    I have however received an appointment from the…[Read more]

    Oooooh @Marie, that all sounds rather tricky and complicated…let’s hope your recovery is more straightforward for you.

    Sending gentle hugs.

    Hi @ART – how are you getting on? Being good I hope!

    Love Nichola xx

  • Littlemrs replied to the topic March 2018 in the forum March 1 year, 4 months ago

    Hi @Marie – I’m pleased you have been feeling comfortable so far. Obviously as the anaesthetic wears off you will want to keep topped up with painkillers regularly – don’t wait to see how you feel – and do ask for mess if you can’t wait for the trolley to come round! I had a mixture of nurses – some would try to restrict my pain relief and others…[Read more]

    Hi @Marie, well done on your safe arrival to the Done Couch – hope you manage to rest ok without too many interruptions. Lovely to hear your hubby visited you too.

    Hi and welcome @Jules1958 – I’m sorry I have no experience of your condition and pending surgery – I can’t imagine how you must feel after already going through the ordeal of a…[Read more]

    Hi and welcome @amyeasterbrook – I hope your recovery going well so far.

    @Benncat, hope you’re ok, been thinking about you and your appointment today.

    Love Nichola x

    Wishing you all the best for your op @Marie, looking forward to seeing you on the other side!

    Love Nichola x

  • Hi @Benncat, so sorry to hear you have been suffering so much, your appointment tomorrow can’t come soon enough, sending gentle hugs.

    Thankyou @Benncat and @Cheryl ref my symptoms – tomorrow I’ll be 2 weeks post-op – I have no other symptoms that point to infection – no more bleeding/spotting – I am reducing painkillers, my bladder feels a little…[Read more]

  • Good evening ladies.

    Just a quick question – whilst my ovaries were left behind I can’t help feeling that I am experiencing some menopausal symptoms – hot flushes and night sweats – I was having these symptoms prior to my op as I had 4 months of Zoladex injections, however as my last injection was at the end of January, I would expect the effects…[Read more]

  • Littlemrs replied to the topic March 2018 in the forum March 1 year, 4 months ago

    Yaaaay, well done @ART and welcome to the cosy couch – rest well and fingers crossed for an easy escape on Sunday!

    Gentle hugs Nichola xx

  • Littlemrs replied to the topic March 2018 in the forum March 1 year, 4 months ago

    Good evening ladies – just hopped over from the February group to send good luck wishes to @ART for tomorrow. I am 10 days post abdominal op and it feels so surreal to be on this side after the stressful build-up – you’ll soon be on the fresh new March Done Couch!

    Love Nichola xx

  • Hi Fiona, just want to wish you well for tomorrow. I had a full abdominal last Monday – vertical cut due to womb being too large. I had a spinal anaesthetic as well as general anaesthetic and I came round from the op very bright and comfortable – completely different when I have had previous general anaesthetic with PCA morphine pump.

    Good luck,…[Read more]

  • Hi ladies

    Sorry I’m late wishing @funkydoofamily good luck for today – we’ve reserved a very comfy space for you on the Done Couch!

    My recovery is going well and am massively thankful to my mum for coming to stay…and cook…and ensure that I keep resting. She has been taking me out for a short walk each day and we increase the distance each…[Read more]
