H is for Hysterectomy

Here I am again, mostly because I’m frustrated at myself for being such a master procrastinator and leaving this site to rot for long periods of time when I have a lot to say! So that being said, I will just type and give no promises as to when I will be back or if this is a new chapter or blah blah blah.

 

Let’s start this post with the latest that has happened in my life, I had a hysterectomy (leaving the ovaries) 2.5 weeks ago, that’s right, I’m a 41 soon to be 42 year old woman who will not have a period for the rest of her life and won’t go into menopause until nature decides it’s time.

This was the first time I have ever had surgery or gone under anesthesia in my life, I was super nervous about the whole thing since I’ve always been afraid of the after, the pain and the caring for wounds and stuff, but I am happy to report that being a pessimist some times has it’s advantages because, even though I was in a bit of pain the first few days, I am feeling great with zero pain. Also helps that I did follow the doctor’s instructions and didn’t overdue my walking and moving.

I still have 11 days before I go back to work and to the outside world since I’ve been on my couch and inside my house the whole time. (not counting the post op visit a few days ago). I’ve enjoy the relaxing time with my cats and being able to catch up on my Netflix list but I am about to lose my mind! I need more human interaction and a change of scenario soon.

Well that’s all I have to say today, but there are more things that need to be shared on the internet or my life wouldn’t be my life šŸ™‚

Thanks for stopping by and reading…
