I stumbled across this site whilst looking for answers as to why I'm feeling SO crappy nearly 4 weeks after having a laparoscopic bilateral salpingo oophorectomy.
I had a general anaesthetic, was the last operation of the day, ended up on an orthopaedic ward for post op recovery and then, less than 18 hours later, discharged with no advice and only paracetamol and ibuprofen for pain relief !
2 days later, I was in total agony and re admitted to hospital-thankfully, this time to a gynae ward-where the staff were excellent, sorted out my pain and three days later, I was back home.
So within a week of the op, I was feeling fairly ok.
Less than two weeks after the op, and being the sort of person who finds it hard to sit around doing nothing, I started pottering around the garden, did some hoovering, etc and then, having had a long standing order for a friends daughter's wedding, spent four days last week making a four tier wedding cake and another cake.
After my pre op, and before my op, my Dr's surgery rang me to tell me that my pre op blood test had shown I was low in iron, so could I go in to discuss this with my Dr.
So, just over a week ago, before my wedding cake making, and nearly three weeks post op, I went to see my Dr.
I had started to feel generally unwell with stomach pains, general acheyness and just not quite right.
I mentioned this to my Dr who didn't seem too concerned and proceeded to put me on iron tablets to boost my low stores of iron.
Since I started taking the tablets one week ago, I feel dreadful 😩
My stomach is constantly rolling, I ache all over and whilst I don't have 'through the eye of a needle' diarrhoea.....its .....loose ! to say the least ! Also getting a lot of headaches and just feel crap in general.
Before anyone mentions menopausal symptoms, I'll just give you a bit of history. Following two reoccurrances of my initial breast cancer ( lumpectomy, radiotherapy, mastectomy, chemo ) I CHOSE to have my ovaries removed.
I had been having monthly Zoladex injections to shut my ovaries down
