Hello Dear Ladies
I have just started to post a little since my surgery on July 24. It is now 2 weeks and the pain is still so bad. At times it becomes unbearable.
I was wondering how long your recovery was and how long the extreme pain lasted. How did you manage the pain and all that goes along with it?
I am no newbie to surgery and pain, but this by far has been the most difficult and the most painful ever.
My onc is setting up a ct scan to be sure nothing else is going on. I had no idea that this would be so difficult.
I am still on a variety of strong narcotics, at least every 4 hours. Does this sound like your recovery?
Any advice would be so appreciated.
I hurt so much, it just makes me feel like I cannot continue much longer. Although I know that I must and I will. It's just so darn hard.
My onc is also still undecided about adjuvent chemo. One ovary was serous and the other was serous and endometrioid mixed. The ovary that was serous totally engulfed the falopian tube,18 cm and the the washings were positive for cells. But, the good in all this was that both were (LMP) low malignant potential.
I am hopeful that you will have some similar situations to share, so that I know I am within normal healing range for this awful surgery.
Thank you for your continued support and wise comforting words.
Hugs to all
