Radical hysterectomy, ovaries and lymph nodes

Hi, I was diagnosed on 1.11 and yesterday had surgery. It’s SO painful and I’m on all the drugs in hospital at the mo. Anyone been through this?

Dear Jagkjp,

I don’t have experience of this operation but there are ladies on here who have - I just wanted to send you a big virtual hug and reassure you that the pain will improve, but you’ve just had an awful lot done. Please don’t think twice about asking for more painkillers if it’s bad, and I hope you can get some sleep tonight, because that always helps. Xxx

I had surgery just under 2 weeks ago. I was in a lot of pain at first and it took a while to get the right pain meds at the right times. They adjusted things for me and I got used to asking before things got too bad. Since being back home I’ve been able to slowly start dropping down the meds. It will take time but it does improve!
