new from hysterectomy board

So, the hysterectomy board is closing in a few days and everyone there was invited to come here thus, here I am.
I had a TAH on Tuesday, came home on Thursday and its now Saturday. While I'm not 100% by any means, I'm amazed that I feel this good.
I never had very heavy periods but I did have pain and bloating from fibroids. I had a softball size one on my left side and three smaller ones on the right but the pathology report isn't back yet and I could have had more inside. I'm hoping to find an explanation for the reason I was never able to carry any babies to term.
I still have my ovaries but I wasn't sure if they were going to shut down. I pinched my dh on the butt today so it seems they're working. Being 43 I know I don't have a long time before menopause so I'll be hanging out here for awhile.

What you are experiencing is 'jelly belly'.
