The resilience of the human body

I'm 60 hours post operative after a hysterectomy and feeling good 😊 Convinced that losing weight and building up my fitness has paid dividends 😊 Also keeping my weight stable and muscle strength during the last six weeks of ill health 😊

Post operatively I have worked hard to get walking up and down the (very long) hospital corridor πŸ‘Ÿ And sorry if it TMI but the prunes and orange juice are also doing the trick thank you moreless for the suggestion!!

Feeling hopeful 😊 Happy Sunday people 😊

  • Hi Anna, I am so pleased the op went well and you are so positive the worst is over upwards only for you now. πŸ’πŸ’πŸ’

    Yes you are right your past effoerts will have paid a huge part in your recovery now, so you did well girl!πŸ‘

    I remember the post op loo problem till my dad bought me some apple pie in, then I wish I had only eaten half of it LOL!🍏🍏🍏

    Happy Sunday to you too, you will soon be home, don't overdo it, let people look after you a little and good luck for a speedy recovery.😊 Bev x

  • Happy recovery !

  • Prunes and orange juice are good - also drink loads of water lots of little sips mind no gulping that will help keep everything moving along. Glad you are safely through it Anna61 and able to walk about that's really good going but don't get too tired. Speedy recovery....

  • Make sure not to overdo things, Anna, hope the recovery goes well. Fitness and muscle strength will pay dividends for your recovery.

    I second prunes as being a really good idea on some occasions! I've also found that a course of probiotic supplements will often help get everything working as it should.

  • 😊 so pleased you sound so positive and all your efforts leading up to the op have helped, wishing you a very speedy recovery x

    Best wishes

  • Thank you everyone 😊 Feeling a bit more battered and bruised today but nothing major 😊 Walking continues to give me relief from wind and sore abdomen and just feels good 😊 Having no nausea post operatively has made a massive difference as it means my IBS hasn't flared up 😊 All in all things are looking positive 😊 Just need to wait 10 days for laboratory analysis but surgeon not worried 😊

  • Glad to hear that everything's progressing nicely Anna and hope that you're feeling less battered soon :)

    I'm sure that your lab results are going to be just fine and that you have nothing to worry about :)

    Stay strong and keep strolling along :)
