    Hi Jill

    Sneezes are a nightmare arent they :roll: I have had them all weekend.

    Hope your sneezes vanish soon.

    Hi Tracey

    Today is the first day that I've woken up & thought \"I don't feel like crap today\"!! It is my birthday so that may have something to do with it!

    Hope you're okay.

    Hi Tracey

    Thanks! We went out for something to eat with a couple of friends but I can't sit upright in a \"proper\" chair for very long so I was glad to get home!

    I must admit, for the past few days I have been making sure I ake myself look presentable and put some make up on etc. It has made me feel a little better. I've been walking the dog for the last 2 days which is a start and I might have a go a driving at the weekend.

    Glad you are okay. It does get a little bit better each day but this is why we have 6 weeks off. It's not going to happen overnight.

    When was Lindas op?

    Hi Linda

    You did brilliantly going out I dont think I am ready for that just yet,

    Infact you are recovering so well and I thought I was doing well

    Mark wont let me walk our dog because she pulls too much, as for make up I only bother with that if I am working or going out, :oops:

    I slept on my tummy last night at long last I much prefer that than sleeping on my back, Still waking up through the night to go to loo though.

    Not in too much pain today either but I am on a cant be bothered day I havent had a shower yet. Very bad I know :roll:

    I think I am down at the thought og recovering and going back to work as I dont want to at all I hate it and being off as made me realise how much I do hate it and how much of horrible people that they are that work there

    Lindas op was in the 18th.

    Hi Tracey

    I think you're doing well too. Don't forget, it's major surgery that we've had and it does take a long time to get back to normal.

    I'm still sleeping in the spare room but I don't really sleep very well. So, when my husband gets up to go to work at 5am, I get into our bed and I sleep for a few hours. I might try going back in there permanently tonight but it takes me 10 minutes to turn over at the moment!!

    You will have days when you can't be bothered, I must admit that I've been making an effort because I know that people were coming round to see me!! Today it's tracky bottoms and greasy hair!! :lol: Mind you, I think that having my hormones all over the place what with changing to the HRT has given me really bad spots. I haven't looked like this since I was a teenager! :oops:

    Maybe you should use the time at home to search the internet for another job, or even just something to tide you over. It's not nice when you don't like your job - I've been there before - the best thing to do is what is right for you. If you want to leave, leave. In my experience it was sending me towards depression and I wasn't prepared for a job (or certain people) to do that to me.

    Anyway, I hope that you're feeling ok today. At least we have an excuse to stay inside as it's gonna be sooo cold tomorrow and Saturday!!

    Hope Linda's op went okay.

    I keep forgetting its major surgery we have had.

    Last night I made tea as hubby was doing all the ironing and it was an easy tea only pasta, anyway afterwards he kept shouting down telling me not to clean up or make the kids lunches etc. He wont let me do anything which although its nice hes looking after me its also suffocating me but then my friend is the same. :cry:

    The last two night s I have had trouble sleeping too as my back and legs have been hurting so havent a clue what that is.

    How did you sleep last night Jill?

    I still have spots too I am hoping that once my bosy has recovered the spots and falling out hair will stop

    I have had to buy spot cleansers which I havent bought since Teenager. Even thinking of buying the cream as my face is really oily at the moment.

    Just had my coal topped up so can stay in nice and warm all weekend now but I dont think we are going to be hot as bad as other places. :D

    I can also have bath now that hes been as didnt have a shower yesterday :oops: as just couldnt be bothered

    Hope everyone else is ok

    Hi Tracey

    I know what you mean, it's nice that they want to look after you but you want to do things for yourself whenever possible. I've been doing a bit of ironing, walking the dog, making dinner (there's only the 2 of us), grooming the dog. So I've been pretty active but as soon as it hurts, I stop.

    I tried driving my car yesterday and that was so-so. It hurt after a little while as I;m still having trouble sitting upright for long periods of time. I have a sharp stabbing pain if I bend forward too far. It will be nice to be able to pop out to the shops rather than rely on Colin.

    I went back into our bed last night. I didn't sleep too well as I need a lot of room to turn over. Think I might go back to the spare room tonight!

    I've been out with the dog this morning and it's not as cold as I thought it was going to be. Mind you, I had my long johns & trousers on over my PJs!! Going to get in the shower now and put some potion on my teenage spots!! :lol:

    Take care.

    Hi

    Had a bath so feel human again LOL

    Clean pjs and no more greasy hair :lol:

    Came down to an email from work saying that because I had a sick note for only 4 weeks did that mean I would be getting another one I said they recomended 8-12 weeks recovery and as I am only on week 3 its likely yes.

    I then went on to remind her how no one from the school has still bothered to ask how I am. :x

    I also said that even though I am recovering well I cant stand for more than 5 mins before I am hurting internally and that I have made another appointment with occupational health towards the end of my recovery.

    Next week I am going to try and have a walk each day to start building myself up more.

    I have lost 6lbs since surgery so swelling is going down nicely :lol:

    I am shattered now I have had a bath but managed to finish my book whilst in there. Got lots to read before I go back to work and have no time again. :roll:

    Going to make some lunch then sit and watch a film if I dont fall asleep.

    Hi Tracey and Jill

    Just to say the op went well, I went down to theatre about 3.30pm and got back on the ward about 8pm. Mels gone, and both ovaries were taken, my consultant says that I am only 7yrs away from expected memopause so I should only need HRT for a short while, if at all. We'll wait and see on that one.

    At the moment I am very soar and stiff and my belly is numb, the doc says it can take up to a year to get the feeling back, how weird is that. I have to be very careful now and get total rest!!

    How is everyone, from what I can see, have you had your cyst removed Tracey? How did it go.

    Doc says baby Mel was bigger than she expected because because my pelvis is quite deep. She has been sent off for analysis. I have to sign off now it is getting late and I should be getting to bed oooooh my own bed at last!!!!

    OMG a whole year to get the feeling back properly :shock:

    What I find the funniest is getting out in a carpark or in my kitchen we have a galley kitchen not being able to hold my tummy in at all :lol: that is such a wierd sensation not being able to breathe in

    My op went fine Linda and its been 3 weeks today since I was done and the alien went. I am recovering well but I have to say today I have felt very achy in my legs back and right hip not sure whats causing that but can see I am in for another restless night :cry: but like you say at least its in my own bed

    Get plenty of rest , books and magazines you will need it LOL

    Hi Linda & Tracey

    Good to hear that you're back home Linda. We are both in the same position - my remaining ovary was removed. I started my HRT in the hospital though.

    I've had a really bad day today, my tummy is sore and I have felt very sad & teary. Hopefully tomorrow will be better!

    Take care.

    Hi Jill and Linda

    How are you both doing today?

    Jill I hope your tummy is better now.

    My hip pain seems to have eased off thank goodness, although I was a bit concerned last night when I saw blood coming out one of my stitch holes that I thought was healed. Just had a bath and cant see anything to cause concern but Mark is going to take a look later.

    As per usual the bath has wiped me out but I did get out and about Saturday and have not been on much pain relief over the weekend

    I had a chat with hubby too about lettting me do stuff around the house I said I will tell him if I need to stop but if I feel up to it he needs to let me do it

    Hi

    I dont know how you two are doing but I have just booked myself an appointment at the docs as I cant stand the pain in my hip and right side anymore.

    The painkillers I have arent doing anything and I have gone back to sleepness nights

    I am not over exerting myself as havent done anything for 3 days as too tired and my hair is still falling out.

    Got my appointment for tomorrow

    Hope you are doing better

    Tracey xx
