I've now has a week post op. Was in Hospital till Friday, and can't believe how hard I'm finding movement, & dealing with the catheter. I'm not all doom and gloom,
im generally keeping positive, but I'm having good and bad days. I'm waiting for my biopsy results, to see if further treatment is needed. My best advice post op, is a body pillow, they're sp helpful in getting comfy. I'm living in loose clothes, & have my sexy stockings on for six weeks, so a cracking look going on. I'm making light of my catheter, but on day 7, it's quite uncomfortable, & does make me feel a bit low, especially when I have visitors over, I'm so aware of it.
Some of my nerves were caught in the op, so I have lost all feeling in the right side of my thigh and pelvis area, which is very weird. Surgeon, said can take months to come back, luckily it still works okay.
Peppermint tea, has been my saviour with wind! Nausea is really bad, so when you leave, ask for anti sickness, because when you start eating again, it does have an impact.
I'm overall very happy, and positive with how I've been treated, but I'm slowly realising the enormity of why I had the op, & that's scary. Silly but it's the only time, it's really hit me, that I am a cancer patient.
Hope other people are getting on okay, and I send much love. x
