This is my first post here and I'm hoping some of you can relate!
i had a rad hysterectomy with lymph nodes and ovaries removed in June and given clear result 2 weeks later. Initially I recovered really well, overjoyed I threw myself into life after surgery. I know I was daft but I started running again several weeks after op and was back up to 15 miles a week at around 10 weeks post op.
I then went back to work part time. Since then things have really crashed. I found a lump in my breast (found to be tissue build up from HRT) then my 4 month check was cancelled by the hod purse so I have to wait till this coming week. Since then I've had every pain imaginable. I've had mild backache since the op but this has become worse with hip and thigh pain too, with a feeling of burning and swelling. I've also had a UTi. Apologies for tmi but I feel like I have constant wind, pee all the time but never fully void my bladder. Needless to say I'm not exercising much at all now Which probably doesn't help!
emotionally I am a mess. Of course I google my symptoms and become convinced it's recurrence. In my more rational moments I wonder whether a lot of it is a reaction to the breast clinic, cancellation of appointment and severe anxiety.
i'd love to talk to others who can understand how I feel!
