Hey there, hope you have all had a relatively pain free weekend. So tomorrow I will be 5 weeks post op a laparoscopic vaginally assisted hysterectomy. After 3 days I went home and managed my pain with hot water bottles and yes calpol lol. They said anyone dealing with chronic pain would find it a breeze. By week two no pain relief and week 3 NO PAIN hooray. But to my dismay late Friday I acquainted myself with a familiar friend. Someone please tell me my head has gone astray and its not really happening. I'm 34 and single with one little smushy monster but this was a MASSIVE decision to make to be pain free and to think my dreams hae been shattered for nothing makes me so sad. Has this happened to anyone else? Could the pain be something else?????
