Hello I hope everyone's well.
I haven't been on for a while due to my recent surgery: total hysterectomy. Before my surgery I was told my ureters would both be stented to protect them, I was diagnosed with severe endometriosis, my consultant was trying to protect them. I have to say if this is offered to you do not have it, omg I thought I was going to die the pain was unbareable my body was trying to pass the stents constantly. I had a cathiter in for three days which was heavily blood stained they said as a result of the stents. After begging and rolling round my bed in agnony I was rushed for s CT Scan where they found I had stage 2 renal injury, low HB. My whole experience was traumatic I was on a general gyni ward in a single room, when I buzzed for pain relief it took at least 4 occasions for me to be offered anything. I was prescribed oramorph and ketamine but every time I was offered one ibruphen. I am considering a compliant to the ward as the standard of care was poor. After returning from surgery I was unable to move I had no water jug to have a drink, I had to reach accross in my holdhall to thankfully get my water I had brought with me.
I am now three weeks post op, I wanted to know anyone else's feeling thoughts on recovery time, I still feel like my insides are falling out, it hurts when I laugh and cough, is this right at 3 weeks. I am up and about due to the time of year, plenty to do. I have an abdominal scar from hip to hip this is healing nicely. I had a lot of endo removed especially from my sigmoid colon and within my abdo. I have to wait 6 weeks before I can explore HRT because it will stimulate my endo again. Anyone any advice please on my herbal or vitamins to take, I really would appreciate it.
Thanks in advance.
