It's a bit of a process, but taking one day at a time is all you can do. Walk around the house several times a day to help healing and your strength. Keep up your liquids, protein and other nutritional needs (also aids healing). Getting those staples out will be a big relief, too!

Glad to here the surgery went well. Have you gotten you pathology report back yet?

I didn't have staples with my surgery - she basicly glued me shut but I remember having them with my c sectiion. They hurt and it felt soooooo much better after they were removed.

Take it day by day. You need to eat to keep your energy up. Try little doses at a time

I would let your doc know. I had a total hysterectomy on Oct 2, 2012. I did not have any bleeding but I also did not feel like eating much. That is common. Just try real hard though. It will help with your recovery. Maybe eat small meals. Also, make sure you have a bowel movement everyday. Did you get any results back from your surgery? Oh, and it does feel better when the staples come out. Something to look forward to.
