So following on from my previous post I have have a total hysterectomy procedure with removal of uterus, Fallopian tubes, ovaries and cervix. This is due to Endometriosis and adenomyosis and was my last resort really as I have had 7 previous laparoscopic procedures, the pill, Mirena coil decapeptyl all without any full relief from my symptoms.
This was done by open abdomen I was in theatre for 5 hours as all of my organs were stuck together and they found a lot of adhesions on my pelvis towards my bowel as well as on my bladder.
I am 3 weeks post op now and My recovery has been slow. I developed a urine infection post op and have had 2 lots of oral antibiotics to treat this. However I am still experiencing pain when passing urine....it doesn’t sting out right at the end it hurts inside and I am concerned that this could be because of the adhesions on my bladder. I had no bleeding or discharge post op but have just started experiencing a yellow/brown discharge I went back to see my GP who has put me on a third court of antibiotics (my last urine sample was clear) I am also still feeling very sore when I’m walking around although I am able to mobilise a lot better and when I’m sitting/ resting I don’t have much pain.
Has anyone else experienced these symptoms? Am I expecting too much too soon? I am aware that it is early days and I am not a very patient patient but I really do not know if this is normal or not so would appreciate hearing from others who have had this procedure and if this is normal or not??
Thank you so much
