    I have very dry skin but I’ve put it down to not being able to moisturise properly. I also had some nasty reaction to plaster that they dressed my wound after op. It took off a layer of my skin either side of wound. I’ve been using aloe Vera cream which is healing them up nicely. Hope it improves quickly for you as the warmer weather can…[Read more]

    Hi All
    One week ago today! Re exercises I did not get any advice when discharged but I am doing pelvic floor and ankle rotations etc. A good friend who is a yoga guru is pooping over next week to give some advice and also on nutrition, I will pass on any useful suggestions to you all.
    The past two days have been tough. I’ve had to get some…[Read more]

    Hi Aussie
    Hugs coming your way now. You must be feeling deeply shocked and worried. Hopefully the gynea consultant will call ASAP to answer your many questions. As questions come to you write them down. I always forget to ask questions that had been bugging me. Hugs and more more hugs.

    Hi Ladies
    Whoop whoop had my second BM today and it was easier. I swear by mini walks in bedroom, peppermint tea, drinking lots of lovely prunes. Pain on day 4 post op has had its moments. I’m keeping a list of the things my tummy muscles have done before this op without me thanking them. Just about everything really as I’m discovering. Wound…[Read more]

    Hi Julie
    Walking around upstairs really did help. I managed my first BM and partner did a little ‘whoop’ and a cheer to celebrate! I think he is finding it difficult to watch. Hope you are ok.

    Hi all

    Having a really hard time and so painful with what feels like constipation. I’ve been drinking peppermint tea, eating prunes and taken senokot. Any more suggestions please as the pain is unbearable at times. On a brighter note before my op I bought a self tilting garden chair from B&Q, with a single duvet under me it allows you to lay back…[Read more]

    Well done Lorraine. I had a good first night at home. V cushion has been helpful and word searches. Never done them before but I am unable to concentrate on anything else. I’m finding it hard not being in control and feeling so helpless. Pre op, I never sat down but due to pain and discomfort I’ve realised that rest is the only way to recover. I…[Read more]

    Hi All,
    I left hospital after lunch a day earlier than expected. Now resting at home. No BM yet but taking things to help. I was a bit shocked that they left my scar uncovered. I am unable to look at it yet. Still in pain but I actually look and feel better than I thought I would. Lots of cat napping but not sleeping properly. A nurse told me to…[Read more]

    Hi All,
    Just to say that I’m thinking of you all and to thank you for the support and advice past few days re post op anxiety. I came to hospital at 11.30 and the worst part was only going to theatre at 3.30. A long day but I did it with support from my partner. I got back to the ward at 8 and have had a bit of a time. Pain has been the devil. At…[Read more]

    Thanks everyone for the hugs and reassuring messages. I now have Internet connection. Yippee. Moved over to my partners this afternoon. He is able to work from home next week. Fengirl did you have your op in Peterborough? Just noticed your location. Hopefully I’ll get some sleep tonight and will post when I’m done x

    Thanks Vicki. I just feel so pathetic. How are you feeling today? Are you coping with the pain etc? X

  • sandy123 replied to the topic April Flowers 2016 in the forum April 1 year, 7 months ago

    Hi ladies
    Sorry I’ve not kept in touch. I hope those that have had the op are feeling better by the day. I’m going in tomorrow and not feeling in a great place just how. Anxiety is getting the better of me. Have no internet currently and mobile data almost used up. Feel isolated and so scared. Sandy

    Hi everyone
    I hope that you ladies having had recent surgery are ok. I’ve been unable post as my lovely son cancelled internet provider and new provider decided to let us down. I’m rural and mobile is sporadic. I can’t sleep as so worried about op. Only 4 more sleeps to go. Sandy

    Hi Ladies,
    I am really happy to have found this site. I have found lots of tips and advice and it is reassuring to know that I can chat to you and many of you are having surgery around my date. I am in panic mode as thought I had a 6-8 week wait. I went for my pre op checks today and spent the whole time crying! I am due to have a full…[Read more]
