Wow! Cannot believe 6 months has passed, there were times when this seemed like it would never happen. I’m 95% back to normal ( not sure I was 100% to begin with). I’m exercising, running at least 5km a week, and lifting weights. I’ve noticed my fitness has taken a beating but I feel so good to be back on it. Normality has resumed at work, normal working hours and rushing here and there…..but I love it, I love being busy!
I would say my op seems a distant memory but I still have worries about what could have happened, with the bleeding?! I think it’s just slightly awoken my anxiety, but I don’t let it get in the way of my recovery!
Ah, HRT! Well I had a break off it, the night sweats were a delight! I did take sage tablets and although they didn’t stop the flushes and sweats altogether, they certainly took the edge off! I’ve started Sandrena 0.5mg which is a gel you rub into the skin daily. It’s just enough to tick the osteoporosis box and so far, so good. So I’ll keep everything crossed for this one! I’ve noticed I seem to get bloated a lot more since my op and I still have a very low b/p.
My scar has healed nicely, although it’s still quite pink. I do sometimes have to remind myself it is ONLY 6 months since my op! I’m still 9st 7lb and fit back into my old clothes, am still aiming for 9st though 😉
All in all, life is back to normal and now with this new HRT and this side of recovery, I’m so glad I’ve had it done!
I shall report in 6 months time!
