Hi Everyone, it's been a while. On the 18th August it will have been a year since my myomectomy..
In the last year I've gained all the weight I lost in my 5 months of being unable to eat solid food.
I have a couple of questions. Firstly I am still very sensitive above my scar, is that normal?
Secondly, I still get a lot of swelling above the scar even a year on. I know that's to be expected but it quite uncomfortable.
Thirdly obviously where I had lost the weight, that has left my scar very tight where I lost so much much and regained it.
Finally my periods are very heavy again and I frequently get bad back ache (even without PMT). Should I still be getting back ache? ( I was going to have physio but moved house so it's not within the boundary).
Lastly on a different but related note. In May I was 3 months pregnant obviously mentioned my op just in case. Announced to the family etc and that evening began having a miscarriage. After a long time in A&E, a loads of scans telling me I most likely had a fibroid again I was left in a canteen and given 2 paracetamol and lost my baby there. The pain was pretty horrendous and I spent 10 hours in hospital, A&E were good, being moved to gynaecology was horrific. Will the NHS ever apologise or have any empathy at all for either scenarios? Just because I am not screaming does not mean I'm not in pain the positive is I have my life back, changed my career and began to get myself fitter. I have made some life changing decisions.
