Jambo I had my hysterectomy 15 years ago and I have never looked back. It gave me a new lease of life.(I was only 21 when I had mine!)
Make sure you keep an eye on the pain in your leg. If it starts to swell then I think you should phone GP asap. Dont want to worry you but I had a DVT 7 days after my op. Keep the stockings on and keep wiggling your toes.
Take each day slowly and in a month or so's time you will be on top of the world.
Felt quite uncomfortable from yesterday but otherwise great, was up and down through the night very sore, even going for a pee was sore
Anyway dh checked on me again around 7.30am went to loo and omg I was bleeding heavy
Was very shocked as I have no cervix,ovaries,womb so yes I did panic, called nhs24 who arranged for me to see doc asap
Tummy is swollen a bit but to be expecteed, doc sent me to hospital, thankfully the wifey that operated on me was there as its her on call weekend, she was a bit stunned to see me mind you, she has given me more antib's and painrelief, asked if I wanted to stay in hospital, but said I would rather be at home and return if needed, others need the bed space more than I do
Just had a long soak in the bath as so bloody sore as I had to be examined down there, bleeding quite heavy too,
THOUGHT I GOT AWAY FROM USING SANITARY PRODUCTS(LOL)
