Gail, you're right, the sweats are probably menopausal related. I'm doing OK. I felt great on the outside right away, had no trouble walking, the pain wasn't bad and I was happy to be discharged home so quickly. The guts are another matter. I'm disappointed and a bit discouraged with the cramping and diarrhea and the resulting sore tusch. I've moved things back a notch, eating pretty much what I was eating before the surgery (bland, soft, boring). I hope I didn't replace one set of problems with another. I'm trying to be patient. I did start taking probiotics.
