Hey, Ash, I hope you're doing well.  I haven't heard from you, and will assume that means your're cancer free and moving on with the healing.  I will pray for that, because that pleases me!

I STILL don't have my biopsy results back, but I assume I don't have OVCA, or they would have f**king told me something.  I get my staples out on Thursday, and hope to join a forum for oh, maybe recovering hysterectomies or something.

I wish you the best, and thank you for your service to our Great Country,

Love,
Donna

Hi Ashley,
Hope you are doing ok.  I have been away from the computer for a couple of days so was anxious to come back and check out how you guys were doing (you and Donna).
Hope you are feeling better and stronger.

Just a quick note to say hi!  Checking in to see how you're doing, and to suggest you check out this website called www.hystersisters.com.  I logged in there, and read all kinds of interesting information (a bit different from this forum), including an online store where you can buy things to assist in your recovery.

Please let me know how you're doing.  I'm not so emotional today, feeling sore where my incision is, getting anxious to have the staples out so I can continue healing.  The staples are starting to hurt the surrounding area.  But I'm definitely getting better.  Last night--no fever!!!!  Yeehaaa!

hugs,
Donna

Hi Ash, how are you feeling?  Whatcha been up to?
I had another fever last night (low grade) and chills, seems to be how I spend my evenings.  But today I felt much better.  I moved around a bit more (and yes, MORE gas!)  My husband said, "I didn't know ladies could fart that much!" but he was, of course, joking.

I'm thinking about you, and hoping each day you're a bit better.

hugs,
Donna

Hey Ashley,

Hope you are feeling better. Sometimes Doctors can be doofus' and not cotton on the fact that we would like some reassurance instead of 'very clinical' advice.  
Like I said to Donna, you guys have had MAjor surgery, and it is emotionally as well as physically draining.  Do still keep an eye on your temp etc and if you feel like you are not feeling right then see someone else.
I promise, promise that you will start to feel back to normal soon, it does take time.
My love and thoughts are whizzing to you from across the sea!!

Peace and love...Kim

I hope you never have to go back.

Hi Ashley, why are you so far from your family?  Do you live in Alabama but are staying in KS for some reason?  I think the hardest thing when you don't feel well is being in a strange place alone.

Hang in there, Ashley, lot's of us are rooting for you!

Hey there you...
I am concerned for you.  I hope you start to feel better soon.   Please keep an eye on that temperature.  I have had post op complications and I know what it's like.  Sometimes you think that the pain and fever etc is all part of the op, so it's hard to know what is normal and what is not!  If the doctor keeps saying that it is normal to have a fever then go to another one!  You may just need a short course of antibiotics.
Take care
Peace and love

Dear Ashley,

That is such wonderful news.  Well done. I knew you guys (you and Donna) would be ok.  Sounds like you had a bit of a rough time after surgery, but all over now and now you just rest rest rest.  I told Donna to get everyone else in the house to run around after her!  So you make sure you do the same thing! Lol!

Love and hugs

You're in my thoughts all the time, but especially today.  Hi Ash, I just thought I'd check in and see how you are doing.  I got released from the hospital on Friday evening, and feel so much better being home!  My surgery went well, and everything is out of me.
The onc./gyn said the cyst was the size of a tennis ball, but everything looked benign.  Just waiting for the biopsy results, and the million or so staples to get removed in two weeks.
I hope you are doing as well as me, and look forward to hearing from you.
hugs,
Donna

Hello Ashly,

Just wondering how you are doing? I'm sure you have found that every day you feel a little better and are able to do a little more. Has your doctor starrted you on HR (I know you were worried about that)? I'm six weeks post-op, and am dooing pretty good without (few hot flashes and night sweats). Well, I hope you're having a really good weekend (gotta be better than the worry from the weekend before). Take care!!!!

Hugs,
Shari

How are you doing today?  Did you have to drink that Fleet Phosphoro-soda ****?
OMG, what a horrible thing to do to a person!  Now I'm sitting on the can, every 15 - 30 mins.

I had a nice dinner yesterday with my girls.  Is your family with you now?

I'm praying for you!

I'm thinking of you today.  I just had my last day at work before the surgery.  I feel a bit closer to "our big day" and was wondering how you were doing?

Drop me a line, if you have the chance, just to let me know.  I have a weekend at home with the kids.  Brownies tomorrow for my 7 year old, and a nice family dinner on Sunday.  (Lord knows Monday without food is going to suck!)

Take care,

I am getting anxious about it... but now, the mom in me kicks in, and I want my daughters busy with crafts, school, etc.  I'm making lists of things to occupy they're time.  I have three daughters, two stil living at home, one 23 (out on her own already), one 17 and one 7.  My middle daughter will help alot, so my husband can focus on me...but I'm worried about them being worried, and about not having their mom up & around for awhile.  But having this abdominal open surgery isn't something you just pop up and start shopping after, so I'm praying about it daily.  I know God will see me through.  I'm so glad you're not affected by whatever the problem was that has caused so much pain for everyone who has been on here awhile, and so glad you'll stay.  You're in my prayers.

Hi Ashley, they said I would be in the hospital 2 days.  I am fat, and the GYN told me that if there is trouble with my open surgery, they would want to keep me for 3 or 4 days.  I saw GYN today, asked her questions.  It helps me be assured about her ability, and feel good knowing that she knows my concerns.  Oncologist on Thurs same reason, I've never met him before, so that's my main reason for wanting an appt.  I want them to know I'm an intelligent woman, who has done some homework, addressed concerns, and I'm a nice person (since I'll be asleep the next time they meet me!)
Surgery is one week!  Yikes!  I also had the GYN give me some Xanax so I can get some sleep at night.

How do you manage to keep all your emotions in check?  You sound pretty calm!

Wishing you the best of luck for your surgery.  You and I are going in on the same day for the same surgery!  I have a dermoid cyst, that is complex.  Do you know if you also have a dermoid?  What type of hyster are you having?  Because I'm so fat, they have to perform an open surgery on me, and more than the surgery itself, I'm worried about the recovery.  I'd like to be your friend through this, if you're interested.  Please give me some details about your situation and the reasons why you chose a hysterectomy for your cyst?
Thanks
