Aw, I'm sorry you're so sore. Did you try using ice packs? Are the pain meds helping? Are you still passing clots?

I'm feeling much better today, thanks. Can actually get up and move without pain. I'm passing clots today, though, but my mother (who is an outpatient surgical nurse) says it's normal. Also, the glue on one of the incisions came off today, so I hope that's a good thing!

I actually saw a large clot when I got a shower this afternoon but most of the bleeding has stopped. I also took 2 of the bandages off and a lot of the soreness went away, not sure why. The third bandage I can't remove, the nurse said it is water soluble and will come off when its ready. Pain meds are helping. Thats very helpful that your mom is a surgical nurse! If your feeling good today then I bet I'll feel better tomorrow too.

I hope you feel better by tomorrow! I feel almost 100% again, just sore when I bend over and try to lift something.

How is your throat?

My throat feels fine now and I think I am really starting to feel better although its hard to tell because I am having menstrual cramps now lol I guess it is that time. I'm glad your feeling so much better! How much time did you take off of work for this? If you don't mind me asking.

Don't mind at all! I actually have a weird work schedule... I work Friday through Monday. I scheduled the surgery on Tuesday because the doctor told me I'd need three days to recover fully. I told my boss that I was having the surgery, and she gave me Friday off (even though I didn't ask), but then they called me in to work tonight. So, technically, I've not taken any time off.

How about you?

I'm terrified to work tonight, honestly... my job involves lifting heavy boxes and climbing ladders and stocking products on shelves, and I'm so scared that one of my incisions is going to pop open. My hubby says I'll be fine, and I'm probably just overreacting. I guess we'll see.

Sorry for your almost-arrival of your period. Did your doctor give you any other special instructions - like pelvic rest or not lifting anything? I think you said you couldn't have intercourse for a week, if I remember correctly.

I actually don't go back to work until wed. My dr. told me just to take a full week off, I was really surprised but who am I to complain about a couple extra days off I mostly sit at my job so I'm not too worried about overdoing anything. That surgical glue is probably super strong but I keep thinking that too...... about something popping open lol I'm trying to figure out which day I am going to count as the first day of my period now.

I just realized you said that you have to lift heavy boxes and stuff.... I would try to avoid that tonight. They told me not to do a lot of lifting and your surgery was just a couple days ago. Maybe just be careful?

Eeeeeek, now I'm super nervous! The glue in my navel already came off, but the other two incisions still have glue... Maybe I will tell them that I can't lift or carry the boxes, but I can still unload. I've been doing light housework, like laundry and dishes, but nothing super heavy like the boxes at work. I guess we'll see how I feel.

Did your doctor know that you are monitoring your cycles? Have you noticed a difference in your bleeding? The discharge instructions say that you can expect light bleeding, so maybe if yours is heavy, then maybe you could call that your period.

I actually had a different surgeon than I expected ( original dr. was sick). So he didn't know that I bbt chart. I am actually having menstrual cramps today and it looks like my temp is starting to drop so I will count today as cd1. I feel horrible that my Dr. was sick but it's just my luck it would happen for my surgery.
