Not even period type pain ..only thing getting me down is hot flushes. At night ..although could be this lurgy I've got ..hope is the latter which. Is keeping me awake ..on the plus side so far I've felt brilliant. And don't regret. Having it yet ..i haven't. Driven yet or tested the " play pen " yet ..but after this speedy recovery. I've had I'm giving positive. Vibes to you all ..at first I was under the impression. I was going to have the bikini cut ..only that I spoke to my surgeon. To see if the keyhole. Was an option ..thankfully it was ..i do believe. That having the keyhole. Definitely. Put me in a good place ..ive been cooking out with my dog ..not holding. Him ..strong staffy I have so hubby holds him ..out shopping and cleared out my bedroom ..i was the worst jelly legged patient having it done ..now I'm so glad I did atm ..i didn't. Take a walk in wardrobe. With me just the essential s ..you don't need loads ....can say although. Having another 3 half weeks of work is a bit boring I'm actually. Enjoying. Some me time ..dont be scared like me ..just go with it xx

    Thanks for the positive vibes Denise, I am T minus 41 hours for my TAH rolleyes and I think I am at least as jelly legged as you were, I'll try to focus on how much life will improve afterwards. Hope your hot flushes are just the lurgy and that you get better very soon xx
