Re: Ovaries and falopian tubes operation

Hello,

 

I'm 34 and I had this op on 17th July (a Monday), I was ok the Tuesday and Wednesday, dreadful the Thursday and better again on the Friday when I managed a half hour walk. I do have the added complication of bone mets. I'd say it took me 10 days to feel properly okay again. I can't think of a nice way to say this but your first big fart is a glorious thing! My dissolvable stitches are still a bit visible but the scars are very neat. 

 

 

In terms of being plunged into the menopause, Ive had a few hot flushes and night sweats so far but that might also be my new letrozole drug. My joints are stiff but again that might be the letrozole. I find if I sit down for too long I'm more achey. I was a bit stiff yesterday for example, went to the cinema and sat still for 2 hours and was a bit more stiff walking around after that.

 

Be kind to yourself and don't do too much too soon xx

Re: Ovaries and falopian tubes operation

Hi Sarah!ouise, just acknowledging your post. Haven't had your op, but have suffered constipation with pain killers. Not nice at all.😪 A stool softener is handy to have. I bought one from a local well known pharmacy. I also found liquorice was excellent for me, and soft dried apricots on my porrage. I know prunes help, too. Personally I can't stand them, but when needs must......

Hope this helps a little re constipation. I'm sure someone will be along shortly who can answer your question about the op. Good luck with your recovery. X

Ovaries and falopian tubes operation

His all, 

Last Monday I had my ovaries and falopian tubes out so still recovering. Wondering if anyone else has had this op and how long recovery lasts? Also any advice regarding after op ie: constipation. I've been taking pain relief co-codamol and Naproxen. 

 

Any advice or tips etc would be most appreciated thanks xxxxxx
