5th week post op hysterectomy

Hi everyone....i feel so unwell (so so sorry because i know im wallowing in self pity at the moment) i was so good in hospital and at home drinking water etc...didnt get a UTI and didn't have problems with bowels. But now have an internal infection which is causing so much pain on my left side which is the ovary they left in. I am on anti biotics now but just feel dreadful....im tired constantly, no energy and feel so sick. Hot flushes which i didn't think i would have due to ovary left in....but they have become worse and constant headache....IS THIS NORMAL....i think i just need clarity. When did do ladies feel yourself again xxxx

Oh no, you poor thing.

Hope the antibiotics kick in soon for you.

My hot flushes always give me headaches so it does seems pretty constant.

You need to snuggle up on the sofa, and take care of yourself, here if you want chat. Big hugs xxxx

Oh no! You are my hero....I'm looking to you as inspiration.....I'm on a monthly injection to shrink my fibroids and they have bought on the symptoms of menopause. I was told about this and last month I searched in the internet and found out about Royal jelly. The one I take is stupidly expensive but the flushes are really mild and I was told they would be quite harsh....low moods don't last ...... I mean I do not know for certain if it is the Royal jelly but I won't stop taking it because I'm a mess at the best of times...and the thought of having melt downs before the op is embarrassing....I've also been taking a herbal mixture from my herbalist from when I came out of hospital with the infection.... the mixture is for keeping the infection at bay, the hot flushes controlled, my moods even and my hormones balanced....it can't be just placebo.....but I've not had the op so I don't know.....after the antibiotics please do take some prebiotic for your poor tummy. Will pray for you and sending you lots of good wishes,

Thank you so much windancer...the dr phoned me about half hr ago and said that i need to go on different anti biotics due to internal infection, so hubby picking up new prescription in the morning. He also said that my left side pain was due to this also. He also said that some women do get an infection after....just my luck that im one of them. I was just feeling really sorry for myself this morning. Luckily my hormones as in emotions have been alot better since my op....i no longer look at hubby with murderous intentions lol....hes put up with alot bless him. I have also heard of royal jelly but remember when i was little i watched a programme called "Tales of the unexpected" and the lady gave her baby royal jelly and she turned into a bee....oh my gosh im seriously going loopy lol....maybe my hormones arent right lol xxxx but overall in all seriousness....i have been well after op this is just a small drawback. It could well be due to bathing as they do say not too bath xxxx big hugs xxx
