I had heard that after the kind of surgery I had that women get hot flashes and emotional right away. That hasn't happened to me. I had maybe one tiny little hot flash and I haven't been especially emotional at all. I wonder when these symptoms will arrive. Not that I'm especially looking forward to them - I'd be perfectly happy if I never got night sweats, for example.
It's almost as though my ovaries were never removed. Of course I know they were :) The pain tells me that.
I am moving around quite a bit more. I was able to walk to and from the grocery store at the corner. I'm not in nearly as much pain as before; all of the pain is focused on one area that's about 4 in x 1 in. The scars are looking good and scabby and they don't really hurt. The one in my bellybutton can be tender, if I rub it the wrong way.
