    Please forgive the intrusion ladies. It’s the only way I can think of to contact @katieg from way back in February. I had my op (full total abdominal hysterectomy with everything but my ovaries taken)) done in march. I am now back at work, all activities redumed and I’ve actually started running after being impressed with my flatter tummy. I’ve…[Read more]

    Hi everyone. I’m so pleased you’re all very mobile. Eek though lifting a mattress sounds too much. I haven’t done that yet and mine was on 6th march! I’ve lifted a couple of corners but not a mattress.

    The sun is shining and everyone is feeling better. What better tonic than that xx

    Hi girls. How is everyone doing?

  • Marie replied to the topic April 2018 part 3 in the forum April 1 year, 3 months ago

    Hi @ginab

    I had a TAH with BSO 9 weeks ago. I have a large horizontal incision. I came out on day 5 post op and was told I could remove my dressing 3 days later. I had dvt injections until day 10 post op.

    I was told I’d be seeing my consultant for a follow up 6 weeks post op. I got a letter through the post with an appointment for 22nd may…[Read more]

    Hi Daphne etc

    I’m good. I’m back at work on Tuesday this week which will be 9 weeks post op. I’m only in admin so I’m hoping all will be ok.

    It was my birthday yesterday and just had a quiet day in the sun on my own as OH was working.

    I’m back in jeans, driving, and everything is fine. I never thought I’d get to this point to be honest after…[Read more]

    Awe thank you so much Katie @katieg, that’s so lovely of you. I’m just having a quiet day. OH is on a 12hr day shift today so it’s just me and the dog :-/ x

    Hi @mutti @art and @katieg

    All’s going well. I’m back to work next Tuesday 8th may, I’m back driving again which feels great and tmi but the sex life is back on course.

    The weight is off (now 7st 8) and I’ve now got pretty much a flat stomach again except for the little hysterectomy pouch so I went shopping for new work gear yesterday.

    The…[Read more]

    @hooeful11. I didn’t drive until last Monday!!! That was 7 weeks post op so don’t rush. I felt left behind too and compared my recovery with everyone, but it happens. I’m here today feeling fine. I still get sharp pains but the doc says I will get them for up to a year. The body has had major trauma and been cut here there and everywhere. Again…[Read more]

    Hi @jazz44. Great to have you back, hope Italy was as great as expected, we were all so envious. Hope you are now able to rest for a couple of days.

    I think I’ve lost a few posts but I hope everyone is well. Thanks to @nervousnow, hopeful11 for WhatsApp and @rach74 and @valybobs for the FB group.

  • Marie replied to the topic April 2018 part 3 in the forum April 1 year, 3 months ago

    Hi everyone…just a quick one, I’m on the train going home after a trip to Blackburn Primark shopping for new work gear.

    WhatsApp is also cool with me. If anyone else wants to WhatsApp instead of FB, private message me your number and I’ll totally reply. Other than that a private FB page is good. I don’t want OH knowing about it and a closed one…[Read more]

  • Marie replied to the topic April 2018 part 3 in the forum April 1 year, 3 months ago

    Hi guys…. I’d like a secret FB group if ok. OH is funny about my groups etc so I’d rather he wasn’t able to see it. Let me know then details x

    I won’t be going anywhere. .. is miss you all xx

  • Marie replied to the topic April 2018 part 3 in the forum April 1 year, 3 months ago

    Hi @nervousnow, @rach74 and @lxil19
    My birthday is in Saturday but thank you for your messages. ๐Ÿ™‚ 47 here I come.

    The weight was 53kg / 116.84 lbs and now 49.5kg / 109.12 lbs.

    I’m vegetarian so I suppose I eat healthy but my OH says I still eat the processed stuff I’ve Quorn so I’m playing at it. I’m not sure if the weight was the fibroid but…[Read more]

    Hi girls

    Back from the docs and wahoo, all’s good. I’m now at 7st 8 ๐Ÿ™‚ I was 8st 3 when I had the opportunity so I’m feeling good. I’m only 4ft 11 so I’m happy with that.

    Meeting daughter soon. Not seen her since end of feb. Lol hope she’s remembered my birthday, but probably not, she’s usually late so her card never gets put up. I’ve been up…[Read more]

    Hi @hopefull11

    Yep, things do get better ๐Ÿ™‚ sometimes it won feel like it but remember that it does. As Rach says, take the painkillers till you don’t need them. I’ve been off them for a while but when I walked the dog on Saturday he pulled and hurt. Needless to say the paracetamol came out x

  • Marie replied to the topic March 2018 part 2 in the forum March 1 year, 3 months ago

    Hi @art

    It’s really nice to hear from you and that your back to normal.

    It’s quite sad that we won’t all be staying in touch ๐Ÿ™

    All the love and support which we shared has been invaluable. Things aren’t great here so I’ve felt like I’ve had you guys with me. ๐Ÿ™ x

  • Marie replied to the topic April 2018 part 3 in the forum April 1 year, 3 months ago

    Hi @hopeful 11

    Your doing great. I had a TAH and only came out of hospital on day 6.

    Stay on the painkillers till you don’t need them…that may be weeks but that’s fine. Stay where you’re comfortable. Going to the loo does hurt but don’t try to hold it in, it will make it worse.

    There isn’t a normal but I was still crap at week 5. I’m 8 wk on…[Read more]

  • Marie replied to the topic April 2018 part 2 ……. in the forum April 1 year, 3 months ago

    Hi girls

    Sorry about last night. They have a son together and are now friends but it does piss me off when I see x on texts, especially when I don’t get that many. I’m sure he wouldn’t be happy if I got them but I’m ok this am

    I’m so jealous, wish I was going to Italy too, but at least it’s sunny at the moment here in Lancashire.

    Have a good weekend

  • Marie replied to the topic April 2018 part 2 ……. in the forum April 1 year, 3 months ago

    Today was first wine. I don’t suppose it helps that last week…the day we had sex he’d put on Facebook status…”you can’t change the past but was it really as bad as you thought at the time” and she’d liked it. I asked him about it and he said it was referring to how I’d been. Hmm x
