    When I had mine I had an infection. 6 weeks almost 7 and I still have infections. Hang in there... I was not on antibiotics until after week 2, so I think that is why I am still having complications.

    Hi Marilyn,

    Glad that you're home, but sorry to learn that you're having problems. You came through the surgery and you're back at home, so you can start to heal.

    Three different antibiotics is a lot to take! If you can tolerate it, have someone get you some yogurt so that you can counteract the effects of the antibiotics in your gut.  Because of the infection your outer and inner stitches may take longer to heal.  Inner stitches take at least 6 months.  Pleae be gentle with yourself and take it very, very easy! If you start to spike a fever, head to the ER!

    Am thinking of you, and will keep you in my prayers! xx

      If you don't want to go on HRT, don't.  Let your body settle for a while.  You'll know soon enough if you can do it.  Also, if you are overweight, remember that the fat in your body creates estrogen, too.

      Best of luck, let me know how you do!
