Hydrate!

Summer is hot! We typically need more water in these months anyway, but having surgery recovery during these months means EVEN MORE water needed!

We recommend keeping a water bottle near you at all times. There are even apps that set off alarms often to remind you to take sips.

During your hysterectomy recovery, your body relies on water to help it return to its normal functions. Your bladder needs to wake up. Your intestines need the extra fluid to keep your bowel movements soft.

Add to those reasons, water helps to flush out toxins of anesthesia and medicines that are no longer needed.  Think of water as clearing out the debris!

Water also helps prevent UTI as it dilutes urine and provides a natural work-out for your kidneys.

So make sure to hydrate, hydrate, hydrate!

Don’t let Hot Flashes stop you

I need some help with my hot flashes! Do you have ideas on how I can manage them and other menopause symptoms?

Yes we do!

Never underestimate the power of a fan. Keep a handheld, battery-operated one in your purse or a fan that is USB for your phone. Some even have a spray feature built in! Easy, quick, and convenient. No need to rely on the location to have a fan for you, or trying to make sure to get a spot close to one.

Dressing in layers is another thing you can do to help ease the discomfort of hot flashes. You can remove a piece of clothing as it comes on, without over shedding!

Cold water is another great idea. Keeping it handy, and even on your side table at night. Cold water makes for quick relief once the hot flash hits. Drink it or pour in on yourself!
