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 returned to work 6 weeks after my myomectomy surgery. Not for lack of trying, but my doctor refused me because of that little hole in my wound.
Boy, I was so deluded. The first day, I was nicely dressed, had on my broad heel shoes and did not move much once I was in the office. I felt strong and I was happy to be active and earning a pay cheque again.
When I got home and saw that my wound oozed some white stuff and bled at the little opening; man, that was a reality check. I realised that not because I felt strong meant that my body was mended . So, the next day, I went to work in a loose skirt, slippers and a sweater.
Yes, I was frightened and I messaged my doctor more pics. He said if I did not take it easy, he would order more sick leave for another month. So, I promised I would. From then on, I walked like a old woman and only lifted my handbag and my plate.
I endured the oozing from my would for a few more weeks. It was stubborn.
There were no more doctor visits. You can only take so much of having to strip down for inspection.
