This is exactly what I imagined ..... lovehorse lovehorse lovehorse


Free spirits exchanging ideas without a worry about going "off topic" or being critcized.
I can honestly say I have met such spendid people on this TOTV site and in person. I only hope this thread and these relationships get stronger as time goes on. :bigthumbsup:

This fondly reminds me of my sorority days and I'm lovin' it. TOTV would translate in Greek to Tau Omega Tau V (since there is no Greek V)...don't like that much. But I do like the sound of Chi Pi Sigma...could even shorten it to the Chi Pi's. Sorta sounds like cow pies but what the heck... ;D I can imagine t-shirts with TOTV Chi Pi's...wouldn't that be something? And it'd look like this:

Avista I had one 21 years ago -- mine was full with bikini line incision (couldn't do it vaginally because my uterus had ruptured). A couple of things that still stand -- get out of bed as soon as you can. Walk the halls with a pillow on your gut. Don't hesitate to take your pain needs when you need them, at least at first -- the less pain you feel, the more you'll be up and moving, the you're up and moving, the quicker you heal.

BTW -- If you're like me, you'll wonder why you waited so long and notice a huge improvement in how you feel within 3 months post surgery.

Good luck! If you need anything don't hesitate to shout out -- I'm only 5 minutes from the hospital (if that).

Red, Thanks so much for your reply and great advise. I, too, will have a "bikini cut". I have a large fibroid, and it's the only way to get it out. Surgery will be the 20th about 7:15. I"ll remember what you said about moving around and getting up. Thanks for the offer to shout if I need anything.

Hi Avista,

We will be in TV when you have surgery, please let me know if I can help in any way.

I heard that you should make sure you have a pillow to sit on in the car, not the golf cart, and that you also take one to press against your stomach if you need it on the way home. And then try not to sneeze or cough.

Do you know how to stop a sneeze?

Avista,

I will be thinking of you on the 20th and sending positive thoughts your way.

Although I have not had a hysterectomy a friend did and RW is right...... get up and get walking asap. You might be uncomfortable but the long term effects will be very positive.
As RW says shout out if you need an assistance.
Take care, beady

Ladies, I gotta say we have an awesome group here! As has been said, we may not be sisters by flesh and blood but we are definitely sisters under the skin. I am so glad to know and be part of y'all. HAPPY MONDAY!

I just have to comment on the bra topic.

I hate them with a passion but must wear one. Like some of the rest of my sisters, I have a "full" bosom and gravity has been unkind. I would love to wear a sports bra, but the effect is not so pretty, quite funny actually. Picture a roll extending from armpit to armpit at armpit level. Ugh!!!! I have even considered reduction surgery but never quite worked up enough need to do it. Oh woe is me!!!!! : : :
Love this thread ....it allows me to vent and then I feel so much better. ;D ;D

Since we are back to bras, when I put mine on this morning, I said to myself, another layer of clothing.

Our pipes froze, our house is quite cold, it was in the single digits when I checked the temp and that was with the sun shining and blue skies.

Now waiting for the plumber to come, the mechanic from the oil company said there is nothing he can do.

Global warming, not to sure it has come to the Mid-Hudson Valley yet. Our pipes froze last year also. They have heat tape on them and extra insulation just to protect them from bitter cold winds and weather.

Enjoy the warmth in TV for us.

Has anyone noticed there is now a new Forum on TOTV - Feminine Forum.

Can you imagine we now have our own forum site.

What next?

We start new threads so this one doesn't become too unwieldy and then we can merrily hijack to our hearts' content? ;D
