Ok girls,
I haven't menstruated since mid Nov. I was due to start the week after my total colectomy, but haven't.
I'm not pregnant. I am worried. What if that stuff (ovaries, uterus, fallopian tubes) got messed up with the emergency surgery? Maybe b/c of adhesions and/or scar tissue?
I know my body has been through a lot (2 surgeries a week apart and a blood clot) but now I'm all worried that I won't be able to get a period again and then not be able to get pregnant.
Did anyone else have a delayed period b/c of surgery (s)? How long b4 things got back to normal?

Don't worry, that's normal. I would always miss a couple of periods after surgery, and then it would come back and be regular again.
Dx'd Crohn's in '99 at 28. Proctocolectomy and ileostomy in '06.
Disease-free, medicine-free, and very thankful to be healthy again :)

That has happened to me too...our bodies respond to the "trauma" by protecting themselves in different ways.  If you are really worried, give your Ob/Gyn a call...they won't mind the call!!!

I wish mine would get lighter, but since I got that blood clot and now I'm on warfarin (blood thinner), I've been told it could be heavier and longer and more painful - so excited confused
I just want to get it over with. and get back to a normal cycle.
