    The Post-Surgery Updates

    I said the other day about how I had posted an event on Facebook for my hysterectomy recovery. Well, so you don't feel left out, here's the jist of what has been said there so far.

    "I can use all of the prayers, positive energy, and healing thoughts for an uncomplicated surgery and quick recovery that I can get.

    I'll be able to get any well-wishes posted on FB." (and here in the comments too, of course)

    "Thanks for keeping me in your thoughts.


    5\24 Surgery went well. DR had to take ovaries due to severe endometriosis on uterus, ovaries, and fallopian tubes.

    5\25 Christina is in a lot of pain but doing well otherwise.

    5/26 Recovery going well. Much faster than expected. They're sending me home!

    5/28 My first hot flash (power surge). Interesting experience. Who would've known they last 20 minutes!

    5/29 Found that my incision is infected. The doctor says this is normal! I'll keep cleaning it with peroxide and hope for the best. At least it doesn't hurt worse than usual.

    5/30 Tried to sleep last night without the pain meds. It was not a good idea. I'm back to taking them again.

    6/2 Still really tired and sore. Feel like my insides are stretched tight. Can't seem to get enough sleep. Have an appointment with my doctor to see about the infection in my incision tomorrow.

    6/4 Doctor's visit went well, he gave me an antibiotic and some more pain pills.

    6/5 Drove the car today, went garage sale-ing. It was a lot of fun, but I got tired far too quickly for my liking.

    6/6 Going camping for a day or so. Hopefully it's not too much for my healing body to handle.

    6/9 Camping was a lot harder than I had expected. Home, sore, tired, and happy to have been able to spend that time with my friends.

    6/10 Doing research on NHRT (bio-identical hormone replacement therapy). I have decided that I need to talk my DR into it instead of the conventional route, which uses concentrated horse urine (really not appealing to me for some odd reason). Other than that, the nerves on my cervix and my tummy incision have started to grow back, and the pinching and itching is driving me insane(er)! I'm still in quite a bit of pain, and still needing about 18 hours of sleep or more a day. :/"

    So that's what happened, as it happened. I've set up a spot above the posts here on the blog, where the three most recent of my tweets show up as well. If you are on Twitter, you can follow me, but if you aren't on Twitter, you can still get the updates here if you visit the blog often enough! *grin*

    I've said it before, I'll say it again, and will continue saying it 'til it's true. "Hope you're back to 100% better as quickly and pain free as possible!" *hugs*
