What to expect

Posted Feb 17 2010 10:28pm

Hello everyone, I am new to the group and very glad to have found it. I am 28 years old and just had a Hysterectomy (abdominal) on Nov. 18th of 09. My Doctor never really explained to me what I was going to feel after I had this procedure. He never really explained anything at all to be honest. I didn't know what to expect in the hospital..all the pain..and now I am experiencing all kinds of symptoms. I was also diagnosed with Interstital Cystitis before surgery and since it has flared and gotten worse. The retention has gotten better, but the pain and frequency are still the same and some days worse. I have lost so much weight in the past 8mths or so. Right when I started going to this Dr. and due to sickness with my stomach. I have IBS/Gastritis also. ugh. Which is terrible. 50lb is how much i have lost.

I just wonder what is the process a body goes through. What am I going to go through emotionally and physically. I have a lot of Gas and noises going on down there that I am very unfamiliar with. I still sting and burn in places. So If someone can take me through their experience or help me understand.


Thank you so much
