Eight days ago, I had a total laparoscopic hysterectomy, plus oophorectomy. I do feel more fatigued after having undergone this major surgery.
I’m still continuing to have very uncomfortable cramping at this point. I’ve been trying to get up and walk around as much as possible. Sitting is still the most uncomfortable position for me at this point.
I’m very thankful that I’ve recently joined a menopause support group, on Facebook. It’s been extremely helpful to have shared my experiences with other women who have also received hysterectomies.
It’s very reassuring to know that my experience has been entirely normal, and that, in time, I’ll feel much better than I do today. It’s extremely powerful when women support one another by sharing their stories.
