Dos & Donts after hysterectomy

I had undergone hystrectomy in Feb '10 and both ovaries are also removed.  I am a working lady, aged 43.  I was in bed rest for about a month and slowly started cooking per doctors advise.  As they injected me at my back before surgery, its paining badly at times.  Please advise me on diet and some exercise as my abdomen part is protruding.  Also people advising not to have any medicines for hormone replacement therapy.  Would request your advise.

Hi there,,I can help a bit since I am not a Dr just a volunteer who knows  lots about hysters,,first hand experience and lots of studying....

I do not understand why bedrest for a complete month inactivity is advised but its important to get up and walking  I can only assume its because you had a epideral that went wrong....where you leaking spinal fluid?? did they have to patch the spine spot when injection went?

You really need to speak with your Dr about exercise I cant advise on that at all as I could give you advise that may harm your particular condition.  Lots of water is  always good for anyone you can over do it and effect electrolites in brain 10 8 ounces glasses is a good start, again ask your Dr

I could about write a book on hrt have answered many times....my personal opinion stay FAR away from premarine....it is not bio-identical bio ident, is as close to what your body naturally produces as possible, most women feel miserable with out some estrogen,,many can get by with out the other female (and yes we have a bit of testosterone) yet estrogen helps with hot flashes, night sweats, moodiness, sleep problems.

there is a new wave of nurse practioners who specialise in menopause they can help answer hysterectomy related bio identical hormone replacement,,,there are creams, body sprays ( a bit on the wrist) personally I think you get the best dose that is correct from the patch easy to use.

Lack of estrogen can lead to skelatal problems....it is commonly said the hormones can cause heart damage not true with bios TRUE with old fashioned meds.

You may want to ask Dr if wearing a mid section girdle /belly brace may help support and tighten those loose muscles,,,,also have yourself tested to see if you are retaining water.
