Marathoner’s Hysterectomy – Day 10

Hi! Yesterday I arrived in Los Cabos to visit my sister and the plane ride was totally fine, though it feels like I have to pee more often than normal? Not sure. After some relaxing by the pool, I went for a “fast” 7km in the hot evening! The whole first half of the walkContinue reading “Marathoner’s Hysterectomy – Day 10”

Hysterectomy Recovery – Days 7 & 8

It’s been a week already! I can’t believe it. At this time last Tuesday I didn’t know if I was gonna survive, but today I’m kicking ass haha. Yesterday I walked 5k at a medium pace and it felt totally fine aside from the mild low back ache from what I’m confident is just overallContinue reading “Hysterectomy Recovery – Days 7 & 8”

Marathoner’s Hysterectomy Recovery – day 6

When I woke up this morning I felt noticeably different than yesterday. I slept really long and only got up once, and even sitting up in bed I didn’t feel as fragile or cautious.

It felt good to get some real rest and not have such disruptive bloat-pain. I’m really happy that after thatContinue reading “Marathoner’s Hysterectomy Journey – days 4 & 5”

Marathoner’s Hysterectomy Journey -Day 3

Okay, 2nd night’s “sleep” was WAY better than the first, though not great. I got in a solid four hours, but then I kept getting out of bed every two hours to walk around and try to get my GI tract moving. Having no catheter or IV was very freeing and even though I wasContinue reading “Marathoner’s Hysterectomy Journey -Day 3”

Hysterectomy – the rest of Day 2

Today basically kept getting better. An intentional 15 min walk outside, a bit of real food (toast with some sort of prune potion that my nurse gave me), another BM and more walking with a friend, Gillian, who has experienced far more when it comes to gynecological surgeries than I have, and a nap. StillContinue reading “Hysterectomy – the rest of Day 2”
