9 fibroids removed

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hey ladies! I had a myomectomy (9 fibroids were removed) about a week and a half go and I’m feeling a lot better. The first week was tough. I didn’t realize how tired I would be doing things as simple as showering would take so much energy. My friend took me to the grocery store after a week and I was so tired and out of breath while walking around. I’m also very swollen still under my incension which I’m glad to see is normal.  Moving around is a lot easier so I take it one day at a time. I’m curious when I can start working out and being active without the swelling. I go back to work after 3 weeks so hopefully I’m fully rested by then

    Wow you are doing much better than me! it took me 2 months to recover, i understand everyone is different. It also took 6 months for me to feel completely better. Do take it easy and don't do anything too vigorous!

    Hi, I assume it was laparoscopic surgery if you're thinking of going back to work in 3 weeks?! I had a laparoscopic myomectomy in 2013 and felt pretty good after about 4 weeks, but I didn't go back to work until around 6-8 weeks. My main issue was anaemia due to blood loss during surgery as I felt really tired until my iron levels got back to normal. I was back at the gym after about 8 weeks as I recall and all has been well since. Don't push yourself too hard, it does take a little time.
