    Hi Sarah,

    After  5 weeks, my tummy is still hard, but starting to go down a little bit.  I did some work in the yard this weekend and got very sore and tender in lower tummy, I thought I would have to call doctor, but today is better, maybe I over did it a bit.  I have heard tummy is still hard after a couple of months it takes time time to get for everything to heal.

    Take PeriColace or Sinakot to get your bowels moving, you should be having something by now.

      I'm glad you are doing better time will heal...  I'm doing okay, a bit down as the relization has hit me that I'm now sterile by the doctors choice.  I know this may seem not important at my age, but I wanted to do at my choice and not the doctors, just because he was already in there and it would be best because most cancer starts in the tubes.

      Anyway, what has been done is done and need to move on.

      My cyst with the liquid weigh about 2 lbs. so maybe I can get some weight off.  I'm back at doing my exercises, but not all of them because of my hernia surgery I want to give it more time for that recovery period.

      How long did you take off from work?  I took 2 weeks.

      Hello I'm sure the doctors did what they did for a reason, they took both my ovaries away the right one was normal and healthy but I had it taken away so I not suffer with no more cysts x
