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.
As my body healed, especially in the early months after fibroid surgery, my wound felt like a permanent belt. This feels strange, but it was actually This feels strange, though I am conscious that it is the thread used to close the wounds and which also kept my organs inside me. It has taken a while to get used to this.
During this time, I was able to wear tighter fitting clothes without worrying about my wound. After the discomfort ended, I could run my bare hand over the scar, without concern about infecting the wound. My appetite also returned with a vengeance and because I was inactive, I gained more weight.
I decided to test myself, just to gage how much the wound has healed. When I bought my 5 gallon water bottles of water, I would heave them unto my shoulder and take them inside myself.
(I don’t recommend this for anyone else. I am used to lifting heavy weights.) So far, no issues.
My period though is another issue. The Depo-Provera treatments have worn off and my period is playing hide, go seek and see me yah. When it returned, it stayed for a several weeks. I have no idea whether it’s because of the surgery or the Depo itself.
More information is provided in my book. See details below.
