Hello friends! I had my emergency radical laparoscopically assisted vaginal hysterectomy (LAVH)- March 30th! I woke up after surgery and never felt better. The surgery pain pales in comparison to the constant endo pain. I felt like a new person. I worked for years with the endo pain and the surgery was a small splinter. I probably over did it at first. I have had minor complications and I do not want any of friends to follow down the same road. Sometimes with the LAVH you can form hematomas and I have one on my vaginal cuff (they removed my cervex) because of all that I have been doing it has gotten large leading to bleeding. I might have also caused it to get infected (abcess). Still through all this I feel so much better. I am stir crazy and want to go back to work -after 3 weeks of bed rest. So my reason for writing is please be sure to take it easy after the hysto. The doctors say stuff for a reason. You will feel like you can conquer the world the next day - be sure that you talk to your doctor and make a plan - don't rush back to your normal activities. I am looking at a second surgery and or a cauterizing of the vaginal cuff because I felt so good. I am here if you need someone to talk to. Looks like another week out of work - sob sob! Elizabeth

My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
