Pelvic hematoma

Hi everyone. I had my TAH (kept left ovary) on January 2nd due to a fibroid that was on the outside of my uterus between my rectum and uterus. Made for a difficult surgery according to my surgery. As a result, i ended up with a 7cm hematoma that is located right above my bladder. I ended up staying in the hospital for 12 days due to fever and an ileus. Around postop day 6 or 7 they placed a drain in my abdomen hoping to relieve some of the fluid...no such luck. in three days my output was only around 30cc. I also ended up with a PICC line and had to receive TPN(artificial nutrition) I wasn't allowed my first ice chip until post op day number eight or nine! Those wet swabs only can do so much!! I never knew ice tasted so good!! It was such a difficult time! I came home with my Foley and PICC line but thankfully had both removed on Thursday. My bladder seems to be functioning but it is still painful to void. Does anyone have any information regarding this type of hematoma? I am three weeks out and still having a lot of discomfort. I had my first real BM today (i am sure this is TMI) and it was quite painful...will this last much longer?? I can at least say i am getting up more and today plan on getting out for lunch with a friend Any information would be appreciated!!
