Almost a week post-procedure, and I'm feeling really good. No pain at all! The most irritating thing right now is that it will be another 2 weeks before I can take a long, hot, soaking bath. All life's problems should be so minor.

Even better, the period that was due either yesterday or today has yet to put in an appearance <fingers crossed>.

A cat-hair dance is ongoing, TM.  I just hope I'm using strong enough incense.

Yay, Theatre Mom.  I've got backup sticks, LL.

Excellent.  Now where's my sharpener?

Day 9 of this craptastic period with no sign of relief. The good news is that next year, condescending OB/GYNS will finally agree I'm old enough to get the damn thing cut out. I'd schedule the procedure on my birthday if I could.

List? I am supposed to have a list? MONDAY IS COMING! ACK!

Yes, that would be a splendid birthday gift to yourself.  My hyst was 16 years ago (that long? not possible!) and I'm still grateful.

I think you should! I've been telling people for years that the first doctor who mentioned the word "hysterectomy" to me was going to be kissed right on the face.

I had to mention it to my doctor. Her reply was that she was wondering how long it would take!

My freakin' period started today. While I was at work. With no protection in my purse, cause I thought, foolishly, that I was done with this crap.

Dammit. Dammit, dammit, dammit.

So far, it's only spotting. But I am still gloriously pissed off.

Sorry, TM.  I hope it isn't too bad.

I didn't manage to take all the pills necessary to prevent major AF, and now I am dealing with the consequences.   Arg.  Maybe it will be a shorter one?  I can dream.

Ok, I'm cooled off. It turned out to be 3 days of spotting, and it's over now. I still wish I was one of the women whose periods stop completely, but this is a clear improvement.

Just heard a radio documentary on morcellation, and I'm now really really really glad I had an abdominal hyst.  It doesn't cause cancer, but if there's an undetected (ie. unsuspected) tumour there, it's a power metastasiser.

Yeah. And I had my fibroids removed by morcellation- which was the latest, newest, cool thing in 2007 when I had it done.
At least mine were dangling inside the uterus, so hopefully no little morsels escaped.

Apparently most of the time it's perfectly safe - but if there are any cancer cells around unbeknownst to the surgeon, they are spread by the procedure.
