I am two days into the recovery process after having the Davinci Robotic assisted hysterectomy. I had to stay over night the day of surgery for observation. Anesthesia and I have never gotten
along very well. Anyways I was having a terrible time with gas, and found BEANO is wonderful! I also need milk of magnesia to have a #2. All good in that area now. Belly is swollen and so are my ankles and feet. I am only taking ibuprofen during the day and a hydrocodone tab at night to help me sleep. I am up doing some light walking and I also took a shower. Feel very tender and sore nothing that is totally unbearable. The surgeon also took my appendix...saw it was about to burst. I am on a light diet for about a week. I am looking forward to being pain free...Good Luck to all
