6 Weeks Post Surgery

Well it’s been 6 weeks since the hysterectomy. The first week was horrible, the second & third week I had a really bad head cold that Russel had. The third week also saw us visiting my doctor, who said everything was peachy, but the trip wiped me out.

I had some discomfort, was back on Advils 3 x a day for awhile, now maybe once a day dose. At 6 weeks I had thought it would be a dim memory but it is not. There are still things I am dealing with, more annoying than hurtful.

Taking Estradiol, low dose for about a week and it really makes me bitchy, do not think I will continue with this.
I will see my doctor again this coming Tuesday and discuss.

Trips to Eureka wipe me out on good days, the last trip wiped me out for several days. I hope this one goes a bit smoother.

Meanwhile a lot of very nice weather passed by, where I could only look at the garden and not do anything. The last week or so I put in some salad greens and that’s about it.
Now it is grey and raining just enough to make the grasses grow ..not bring the river levels up.

But spring is here and the pendulum is swinging upwards again 🙂


Another surgery coming up soon

Well here we are with beautiful spring like winter weather for the last few weeks. So nice having the sun shine, makes me want to get in the garden..too bad the veggie garden doesn’t get much winter sunshine.

Not that the weather has anything to do with the fact that I will be in hospital and having surgery on Feb 12. Doctor says I will have to take it very easy for 2 weeks and maybe longer. So no gardening will be happening until March for me.. see that is where it all ties in. And who knows what the weather will be then.

This is not a life threatening surgery, but needs to be done. If you have questions … well email me. I will post back about it all after the fact.
