Dawn I had a TAH on Jan.29. I am worse instead of beter. She removed everything but the right ovary, and when I asked her how everything looked, she said pretty good. So why take them? I am horrified that I let this happen. I was under the impression that she wold look for endo, do something to clean the endo up, and look for adhesions, and maybe take the left ovaryif it looked bad. I am so upset that I get to a near- catatonic state. I am in my own litle world. It's rough for my husband, even though he doesn't say much. I know he's angry at how she treated me. I am losing weight,too. From 115 to about 101. Because I want to eat. I'm starved, but it feels as if I've lost the urge. Like the bowels aren't going to work again. Did you ever have this problem? Did you ever have a blockage from adhesions? It feels as if even loose stool won't move. I hurt all the way across above the incision. It feels as if whatever organs are left, are of painful fire, and like they're welded together. After 3 weeks, there should have been improvement. And last week, she laughed me off, so God knows what's wrong in there, now. Millie
