I am 5 weeks post op. Can you believe I actually started my period the morning of my surgery?! I had endo in the past (4 surgeries) and they removed my right ovary because of cysts & found out afterwards I had adenomyosis of the uterus. My surgery was 7/12 & I started period symptoms on 7/30. They haven't stopped! Is this normal? I still have the "swelly belly", but another reason for the surgery was horrible symptoms that would start 1.5 weeks before my period. The worst ones were cramps (having now) & migraines (having now). Mon I did some things like fill up bird feeders/bird baths, wash clothes & pick up a big package left on the porch (wasn't heavy, just big). The past 3 days I've felt horrible! I also suffer from chronic pain in my back (bulging discs & facet arthritis 15+ years) & that has been worse also (we thought the surgery might help that too). I keep telling myself I just had major surgery, but I'm tired of resting! Is anyone else having symptoms? Seems like I never know how I'm going to feel from one day to the next. Today has been depressing & I'm pushing back tears.
