Just wanted a little advice if possible. I had my lymph nodes removed 2 weeks ago and a trachelectomy a week ago. I am fortunate as I seem to be making a good recovery so far. I came home last Sunday and have been feeling better each day, stomach still swollen and a bit sore but esentially going up the wall being stuck indoors.
I spend most of my day eating and there is only so much Fern and Phil a girl can take! The last thing I want is for my stitches to pop or something horrible to happen but I'm wondering if I can go out for lunch if I'm picked up by a friend or for coffee.
Is it ok for me to walk and get a paper? I was not given any post op advice as there wasn't any on trachelectomy.
My family would keep me in bed the whole time given the chance. I'm getting my histology results on Wednesday and hopefully they will be fine but if they are not I will be up for a bout of chemo radiation, thus not going far for a couple of months. I'm just thinking that it would be good to make the most of things whilst I'm feeling OK.
Any advice would be appreciated
Hope you have a happy, stress free weekend (that's what we all hope for right?)
