I had my total abdominal hysterectomy Sept 25. I am now three weeks post op - at home, and for the past two days have had a marked increase in pain. My Dr says this is normal and that the pain is due to internal healing taking place - I also suspect that this is the time I would normally be having my period. I am normally very busy - I'm a social worker accustomed to seeing lots of people every day and I am feeling isolated and cut off from human contact. My husband has been soooo wonderful - however I find that I am hanging all over him when he gets home and this stirs up, well, the desire to be physically close (which is out of the question as I am still recovering) however, he does not want to participate in too much cuddling or closeness because he is concerned about my health ( he believes that any xcitement"which results from the contact might cause tightening of muscles and structures which are also healing.)I am feeling depresed and alone - and am hating feeling "shut in." I am physically well enough to be putterng around the house but once I get out into the "real wold" I run out of steam and need to have a rest. I have few supportive people in my life at this point who know what Im going through...helppppp!
