I know from some of posts and discussions I am about same amount of weeks post op as some of you. I had TAH and BSO so all gone!
just wondered how people were feeling, recovering, if back to work.
I have seen gradual improvement but still get really tired, trying to get back to doing most things but still getting swollen stomach, aching, pain in right groin. I have 2 children 8 and 11 so have had to be on the go with them. Hubby has been great but he works long hours and some weekends. Wonder if expecting too much of myself then see stuff where people say 6 weeks post op and they feel wonderful. If only!! Return to work still seems a way off. I have started hrt but not feeling much benefit as yet. Having lot of headaches and the hot spells. Back is aching, joints aching, still not sleeping properly, feeling run down and low mood. Have others found it takes a while for hormones to settle? I am also hypothyroid so not sure if this surgery has upset my thyroid levels too. I feel people look at me and think I look fine so must be recovered, but I so don't feel it! My gp reviewed me last week and said oh you are 6 weeks post op so you should be ready to go back to work now! I had to explain that I may be 6 weeks post op but only just started driving again and doing hoovering and still can't do a full day of running round at full speed so no , not ready to go back yet! How are others getting on? Any feedback appreciated.
