Hi All,

Sorry it has taken so long to reply...I had the one hour operation on Tuesday. I was out in the afternoon. It was rather painful as expected but healing. Unfortunately I got an infection in my arm from the iv so went onto antibiotics. That didn't help so I came into the ER on Sat night...

I have got cellulitis that was going up my arm (bacterial infection)....still in hospital and been on antibiotics, painkillers, antihistamines and anti-nausea.

My stomach (where they took the fat 'stem like' cells) is healing and so is everything else but is was very painful for the first 3 days and black and blue!

I am still due for my hysterectomy this Friday but we will just see how the infection clears up...

Love Leah xoxo

    Hi,

    In an earlier post I go into detail on the operation. I have LS in the 'undercarriage' so that is where the operation was for...I can't remember what the title to that post but it shouldn't be too difficult to find... x

    So sorry you have had such a miserable experience thus far.  Hope all will turn out well and that all the discomfort wll be just a vague memory once you are healed and well.

    Hi Leah, Just wanted to join others in wishing you well with your hysterectomy. I hope you have a better experience than this event you describe. Don't be afraid to ask nurses to wash their hands before touching you or any of your equipment like IV's. Your experience with cellulitus will make you more aware of the importance of this. Good luck
