LAVH - How long is surgery ?

Hi Stiches,
I don't know for sure, since I do not go in until July, but my doc said about an hour and a half.

Mine took about 3 hours, then another 1 to 2 hours in recovery. Laproscopically takes longer than abdominal since they are working in a much smaller space, but you don't end up with all those stitches that come from an abdominal. Good luck! We'll be thinking of you!

I'm sure this, like everything, will depend on each person individually and also each surgeon's speed. I was told before surgery 1 to 3 hours. I had LAVH with both ovaries & tubes taken and nothing else done. No problems with the surgery or anything, and it still took about 3 hours. I feel great now...I'm sure you will too!

Hi!

I just had an LAVH last week. Mine took 2 hours -- no complications and left the ovaries. I was in the hospital 2 nights and three full days. Recovery is going well, but it is more exhausting than I expected! Really take it easy after your surgery! Feel free to send me a private message if you want more info!

Take Care-
