I had my cone Bioposy & hysterscopy done last week under general anaesthetic.
I know this is a big cliche, but I didn't expect to feel like this afterwards.
Once I came round from GA I felt ok, managed to eat, drink, walk around, get dressed etc with no problems. I was out of hospital well within the 2 hours and felt fine in the evening.
The surgeon told me that they had removed a "substantial chunk" of my cervix, and taken samples from llining of my womb for testing. They said they'd write to me with the results within 2 weeks.
The next day I was shattered. Really lethargic, could hardly get out of bed. Also really, really, really emotional - I spent an hour locked in the bathroom just crying and crying. Ever since then I've been on a bit of a rollercoaster, I am always exhausted, sometimes I feel ok and othertimes I feel depressed or angry or very upset - it is making me feel crazy!
I don't think it helps that it was my birthday last week - I didn't mind not doing anything special to celebrate, but it was hard to be so miserable on a day when I "should" be feeling happy.
I just want to have the results of the biopsy and know where I stand, as usual with me, the uncertainty is doing my head in.
On the physical side of things, I've started getting sharp, darty, early period type pains in my abdomen as well as a deep, dull ache in my pelvis, hip sockets and lower back. sometimes the two seem to merge and I get the sharp period-type pain just over to the left side (sounds weird, but feels like its my left ovary ) and the dull ache is all in left hip.
I'm also noticing bloating, but not all the time, it can literally appear out of nowhere and it's so uncomfortable when it does. Has anyone got a good remedy for it?
Im usually a very active person, but I feel as though I've been knocked for six by this operation. I'm going for a short walk every day, the day after the op I went to the post office 10 mins from my house and fainted in the queue. since then I've been managing a slightly longer walk every day, but I come home covered in cold sweat and having to lie down for about an hour until I feel better. That is not helping my mental state either!
I am having a really tough time emotionally getting over this, I feel like a baby for being so upset but I can't help it!
Amy tips, strategies or techniques you lovely ladies can recommend would be gratefully received!
