Hi All, I'm new here and this is my first post. I'm here unfortunately due to problems immediately and 3 months post opt from a full hysterectomy but still have my ovaries.
Here I am 3 months after and still have severe and worsening nausea, back pain and all over body pain. I am on HRT and I see an Intergrative Dr. for that. I started seeing my Primary Dr. about the nausea about a week ago and she gave me prescription anti nausea meds and Prilosec which have done nothing to help that feeling. I also just had a CAT scan of my upper stomach and chest thinking I may have a Hiatal Hernia but I do not. That test came back normal and I am having 2 more tests next week. I started taking probiotics last week and eat plain yogurt every morning hoping it will settle my stomach but no such luck.
The sad part is I felt pretty good for a week or 2 right after my hysterectomy on Aug. 28 2018 but here I am almost 3 months later and I am in severe pain thru out my body and I have really bad back pain ( which I just had back surgery this year in Feb.). I am feeling very discouraged and suicidal many days because I can't do anything and my pain levels are so bad right now. I do have chronic pain but not like this for so long. I'm also fatigued and started having insomnia after my hysterectomy. I have many doctors that I see that have no idea why I am not feeling good and I absolutely hate when doctors and friends try to tell me it's all in my head or that it's anxiety or even worse that I'm depressed. I'm only depressed because of how I'm feeling physically.
I wake up every morning between 3 - 4 am and lay there until 5 -6 am because I'm so exhausted and can't even get up. When I get up I can hardly move and have to sit with a heating pad or ice on my back for a few hours before I'm able to get myself moving. I have had a few random 'good days' which had made me feel hopeful but most days I'm so sick to my stomach and my body is wracked with pain. I was feeling so alone in this because my husband doesn't understand and thinks I'm making this all up which is so hurtful.
I wanted to write hoping there maybe someone else who has had similar issues. Thank you so much for taking the time to read my post and I look forward to hearing back for others !
