    Hello!!

    I had my surgery almost 3 weeks ago , and I'm very independent also. Ms. Superwoman I am!! Lol

    However I found if I didn't have help from my family and friends it would of been difficult for me, especially that first 10 days. Little things like I'm used to doing like making bed, doing laundry, sweeping floor, dusting, going to bank or store, etc I could not do. The most important thing is following doctors orders when they say no bending, lifting, driving etc. it's worth listening for we can have a complete recovery.

    I hope all goes well for you!! Keep in touch with us and read some of the ladies stories, that's what got me through my most difficult days knowing that someone else was or had gone through the same as I had and am going through. My recovery continues.

      Feeling better each day thank you for asking. Not to tender! My struggle has been the bladder not emptying completely, but we are working on that and I'm self catherate for a few weeks to help retrain or awaken the bladder. That was difficult for me to accept the first several days, but I overcame the fear of not being able to do it. This so shall pass! Pain seized after the first week and I was able to use only ibuprofen to reduce the swelling. I had a bladder prolapse and my uterus removed. Blessed that you have your mother living with you to help you with your little one. Stairs?? I don't have any so ion

      sure someone else will comment on this post soon about. Keep in touch and have a great day!!
