It’s been almost 8 weeks since I had a hysterectomy. I’m doing really well. I have no pain. My incisions have healed completely. I’ve had no complications at all. I have no side effects, other than the wonderful relief of not having a monstrous period every month. I’ve happily not missed two by now!
I am so thankful I went through with the surgery. Once I made the decision, I didn’t second guess myself, but I did have moments of fear. What would happen? Would I be the same afterwards? Would I do ok with the actual surgery itself?
I can honestly say that even though 8 weeks post-op is still early, I feel completely 100% like myself. God is so good and I couldn’t have asked for a better outcome.
It’s weird, but I sometimes have to remind myself that I had a pretty major surgery less than 2 months ago. I often forget about it. A couple of weeks ago, I would still get tired more easily, but by now, I’m back up to full speed ahead. I feel like me. Which is awesome.
I just spent the entire morning cleaning the downstairs, complete with dusting, cleaning, mopping – even organizing my pantry! That felt great!
