The Recovery Process from Myomectomy Surgery
It’s October, almost one year after my Myomectomy surgery, which is the surgical removal of fibroids from the uterus. I have experienced different things during my recovery. At the moment, I am feeling strong and for the most part am fully engaged.
I still maintain that I was actually strong enough to drive myself home after my myomectomy surgery. I managed to go to the pharmacy, buy fruits and survived my uncle’s bumpy ride home. I stayed with my mom the first two days, just so she would not worry about me. Then, I went home and spent the following six weeks taking care of myself.
My mom, God bless her soul, wanted to baby me after my fibroid surgery. But, I could not live without my internet and I had books to write; so, after a day of reading novels on my tablet, I was properly bored. By the following day, I drove myself home, cleaned my wound and propped myself up in bed.
My mom was also worried about me lifting my bags, the containers with food, even myself. It was not a concern for me. Having lifted hundreds of pounds from weight training; bags and containers were child’s play to me. So long as I used my arms and not my core to lift, I was good.
