So sorry to hear of your diagnosis but you have come to the right place to get all the help and support to get you through this. I didn't have a ct scan, just a MRI which confirmed the stage that the consultant thought it was.
The hysterectomy wasn't as bad as thought it would be. I took with me big knickers in a bigger size (tummy will be swollen), peppermint tea bags to get rid of the pain due to trapped wind and bloating post op, stuff to read whether it be books or mags and some nice treat toiletries. Also loose nighties, much better than pj's for this, some loose jog bottoms to come home in and a pillow or soft cushion to put under the seat belt to protect your tummy.
It will be a case of slow and steady when you come home. Let people wait on you and don't try and do too much. Absolutely no bending or lifting. Little walks building up gradually.
The time will pass quicker than you think. Its no walk in the park but just keep looking forward to the future and getting through your journey. You will get lots of help and support from this site, they really are an amazing, strong and supportive bunch of ladies. Don't hesitate to ask us anything you want to know.
