Hi everyone, I posted quite a few weeks ago, saying that I had to go into hospital and have an operation, and my concern was how they were going to do this operation with my copd condition not being good. Well I am pleased to report that I had the operation on the 13th April, and all went well. I was given a spinal block and a general anathestic as well, a bit scary, but the consultants that were looking after me were wonderful, I had a radical hysterectomy, was in hospital on IV antibiotics for 4 days, I had no prob whatsoever with my COPD, I am at home now and although I have to take it easy for quite a long time, I don't regret the decision to have it done, I felt safe at all times with the team that was taking care of me. So trust in the people who know best about your procedure,

    That your operation was a success, and not nearly as bad as what we think sometimes, I think the thought is worse that the deed, glad you also had faith in the medical profession, that goes a long way, stay well. Annette

  • You take care and have the perfect excuse to do nothing. Do hope that after recovery you will feel so much better.

  • Glad all went well. I had a hysterectomy getting on for 2 years now. Plus had to then have emergency 2nd op 3 days later!! But anesthetic was fine.

    Now all over LISTEN to your body and give yourselves time to recover. It's not that long ago people had 6 months off work!

    I went to GP 2 weeks after op complaining I still felt ruff - GP fell about laughing and pointed out I just had major surgery!!

    I tried to go back to work 10 weeks after op, lasted a week then had another couple of weeks off. Just too difficult initially.

    Get well soon
