It's good to read the bleeding has eased. Let us know how the culture comes back.
Please remember the Big Tip from the Recovery Guidelines, especially this early out dealing with an issue as you are. I hope you have a good week!
BIG TIP: Hips actually don't need any exercise to get better. They do a pretty good job of it all on their own if given half a chance.

Even once the bandage, etc. is one, my surgeon said that SuperPath can leave everything a bit tighter than other approaches. In addition, the psoas/hip flexor can be a bit irritated. I was told not to do straight leg raises, etc. because it could irritate things. The hip flexor and piriformis were the last parts of each hip to settle down for me - suddenly improved significantly about 1 month out and really settled by about 2-3 months (except I started having other issues afterwards with second hip, but that's another story).

Has the incision stopped leaking?
I'm sorry this has been rough on you, but it's going to get better.
Sending healing hugs @sequin98
I'm sorry to hear that. I hope the tightness eases and you sleep well tonight.
It's my wish for you on your one month anniversary. Happy Anniversary!
A flower for your special day. You made it to the one month point already, it will get better!
Ugh...I have had my period since I came home from the hospital. Annoying, for sure. But not it is super heavy, and it has wiped me out. I have had to use both crutches due to exhaustion. At this point, I would pay to get my uterus taken out. The tightness I can deal with, but this...
