6 weeks ago yesterday I had my total abdominal hysterectomy and they took my tubes, but I was able to keep my ovaries. It is crazy how different I feel. I honestly feel better than I have felt in probably over a year. I have energy. I am not tired all the time. My back pain is gone. I am sleeping at night. It is all good!
Today, I saw my OB/GYN for my 6 week followup from my surgery. He did an external and an internal exam and everything looks great and has healed beautifully. He lifted ALL of my restrictions and said that I don't need to be seen for another year, unless something comes up. Yippee!
As my doctor told me today, I have been through the really hard part (surgery and the recovery which was difficult to put it mildly) and now I get to enjoy life again!
