back from surgery after 3 week hospital stay

I just got home from the hospital...after 3 weeks and have been thinking about all of you but had no access to the internet. I had my surgery on 5/7 to remove the 2 masses and my gallbladder..instead I ended up with a total hysterectomy due to severe endometriosis damage thank god no cancer! I also had my gallbladdder removed. After that surgery I was fine except I kept feeling nauseous and dry heaving terribly couldnt eat for like 13 days...well a week later i was still heaving and sick and had trouble walking the doctor ended up doing a cat-scan which showed a ruptured bowel from all the dry heaving so a week after the first surgery I was rushed back into emergency surgery for that and long story short have had numerous problems with blood counts, vitamin deficiencys etc...my wound is having a hard time closing so know they may have to hook me up to a wound vac to speed things up but finally let me come home with a dry dressing till they straighten out everthing with the insurance and nurses. I feel ok...very tired.....glad to be home.I am grateful i was cancer free and I am trying to take it one day at a time...I thank all of you for your support, help and wisdom thru it all. thanks.

Welcome back! I, too am very proud of you for having the surgery. I'm sorry it was fraught with so many complications.

I'm also incredibly relieved to hear there's no cancer. It's not only great to hear that you don't have to worry about it, but your information will be comforting to women who come here with fears about possible malignancy!
