3 weeks post op

It's only been 3 weeks but it feels so much longer! I certainly feel better than I did before. But I'm getting horrendous Nasuas and terrible shooting pains in my abdomen. This is obviously nothing compared to the constant pain I was in before. But I'm dreading my first period after the op as I've read a lot that it can be awful for the first few month and even upto 6 months after the op, while your body heals and gets back to normal. My hormones have also been all over the place which isn't unusual for me, but I find myself crying at anything! Like random tv adverts and I've no idea why I'm so upset. I'm still getting tired through the day and find I can't do too much or I ache. But I've found taking a few supplements give me a boost, I take omegas, magnesium and iron sachets.

  • Hi, this sounds like me! I'm nearly three months from op and I experienced nausa too. It does take a while for things to settle, it's only by looking back to how I felt in the first weeks/month to how I feel now that I realise actually I've progressed! Give yourself time and don't rush yourself, everybody is different and some heal quicker than others, just do what's right for you. 😊

  • It's encouraging to hear people say this as I do wonder you know is it growing back or did they leave some that's spreading. But I'm glad to hear these things are just Normal xx
