Myomectomy

Posted , 6 users are following.

I had my myomectomy surgery 9 weeks ago, still I’ve discomfort, very hard to sit down for a long and most of the time depressed, tearfully eyes , tired , don’t feel to do anything. After 7 weeks I started working but sitting long time hurting me, so I try not to sit down for a long period of time.Anyone can help me please when do I feel normal and do my daily work cheerfully? Most of the people say it’ll take a long time to heal, but I’m curious actually how long that will be!!! I suffered a lot before the surgery too and now I’m gaining weight also.

    Good Morning,

    I pray for a full recovery for you and everyone that has or going to have the surgery.

    I know what you’re going through because I’ve been there. It can be very frustrating not to know when you’ll be back to your normal routine but what you went through was the hardest part which is coming out of the surgery alive. 

    Please be very careful not to lift or do anything strenuous because your recovery really depends on it. It can take a lot longer to heal if you’re not careful like me. I started walking around my second week because I felt better. My ob released me back to work on light duty exactly 8 weeks after my surgery. I had bills to pay so I did what I had to do and went back to work although I knew personally that I wasn’t ready. I had a job that required me to walk and lift all day long. I was fine doing my job the first month after that I started spotting for a while, I thought it was normal since I haven’t had my period in two months. Then I started bleeding heavier non stop to the point where I was put on birth control. That took about a month to kick in while I’m still bleeding. My bleeding stopped for three weeks. Last Saturday I started bleeding again to this day even while I’m taking birth control. So I can’t stress enough to everyone to please take very good care of yourself. Don’t do anything until you know for sure you’re completely healed. You’ll know because your body will tell you. If I can go back to my first day after surgery I would have waited more than 6-8 weeks. I would have waited at least three months or longer but everyone heals differently. This is the reason why I haven’t been on this forum in a while because I didn’t want to discourage anyone. I’m sharing now so everyone can be aware of how serious it is to be careful while you’re recovering. I can say that my faith has been the only thing that’s helped me weather the storm. I know that I wake up everyday with mental strength because I pray a thousand times a day. It really has helped me.

      Thank you so much for your valuable advice and encouragement, I appreciate it from all of my heart and soul.Yes, that was a blessing to come out from the surgery alive. I work 3 days a week 12.5 hours shift and no lifting and  I do have day off every 2 days or more. Most of the time I try to walk as much I can and I do pray a lot get back my mental strength, hoping to get back my physical and mental strength soon. I'm hoping and praying your full recovery from the surgery and other issues. Stay strong and happy.

    I am almost 12 weeks post op and I think you just have to listen to your body. I've Google every symptom, scar info and more. I went back to work at 4 1/2 weeks and the first two days were rough, but then I had the weekend to follow it. I had to slow down with trying to get back to normal because my body will always tell me when I'm doing too much. I still cant lift 35+ lbs without some consequence (light bleeding) I was disappointed because my stomach hadn't went down so I started exercising about three weeks ago. I push myself till I feel a little pain then stop. I feel better and now I'm starting to fit into my pants again. I still have pain in my stomach (below my belly button) and one side of incision still hurts frequently, but I can see the improvement. Hang in there and listen to your body, check in with your doctor if you need to and try to walk a little.

      I did see my doctor last week, doctor told me for some woman it is common getting stress from the surgery and not to worry, and gave me blood test. Test results are normal so I'm happy and now I'm taking it easy, in night at my left side incision feel some pinching pain too. My stomach is bloating and swelling a lot, so I need to change my diet also. Any suggestion please.I'm walking on the treadmill or outside as much I can.  I'm thinking to get a couple of weeks off from the job also. Hoping you're doing well now. Have a happy and blissful life.
