It escapes my mental faculties why women have to suffer so much. Even worse, is why do I have to suffer, when I am already suffering? You would think I don’t have enough to deal with recovering from myomectomy surgery, without having to deal with bleeding, a bloated tummy and atopic dermatitis from either the adhesive of the surgical tapes or from lying in bed for the last week. At least that is what I am assuming.
To be honest, I was freaking out! I thought doing the myomectomy surgery would take care of my present, yet prolonged health issue; but that is not the case. My first conclusion was that my skin was being irritated by the prolonged use of feminine napkins; seeing as I have been bleeding for months it seems. My skin is naturally overly sensitive and the adhesive section can make any female’s life miserable.
Issues like these make me court the thoughts of having had a hysterectomy instead.
I hate being a woman!
Again, I did my research and learned that it was a popular issue faced by many people post surgery. The adhesive from either the tape or glue used during surgery and to cover the wound causes an allergic reaction in many people. Me, being one of them. After my myomectomy surgery, I had adhesive on my hands, leg and tummy. My hand did not react to the tape, only one my leg and stomach.
The rash or atopic dermatitis as I have discovered, presented itself for two days at areas near my thighs and for a couple more days around the wound.
