So it's been 4 weeks since my surgery and I can't tell you guys how incredible I'm feeling. This is a miracle. I'm still having issues with my Fibromyalgia, but I feel so good in every other way, that I'm just telling the Fibro, " Get lost. You can't ruin my good mood!"
I'm noticing changes in my skin. I have skin like a baby's bum! My fingernails are stronger and grow like weeds. I've lost 8 -10 pounds and it's staying off. My blood pressure is normal! This is a big one. I was running a bp of 140/100. The 3rd day I was in the hospital it went down to 127/72. I had it checked at my doctor's today and it's still normal. 120/80. And that's in the doctor's office! I have no brain fog. My head is as clear as can be. I can type twice as fast with half the mistakes. My anxiety and depression is almost non-existant. My blood coagulation is very steady. It used to be a roller coaster tryiing to keep my INR at a steady number. It's hardly budged in 2 weeks. Oh!!! I actually have a sex drive! Holy smokes, my hubby is in total shock over this. So am I! This is HUGE.
I'm in awe. I really can't wait to see how I am in another month, six months! I haven't felt like this in years. Probably since junior highschool. At least 20 years! That uterus was not helping me one bit. My lupus is nice and quiet and my family doc wants me to try tapering down on the pred. I haven't been able to do that for a long time. Just can't get over how great I feel!
I wanted to send out encouraging news and if anyone is considering a hysterectomy, email me!!!
I hope everyone has a great evening!
I can do anything through Jesus Christ who strengthens me. I have learned in whatever state I am in,to be content. Phillipians 4:11-13
