Just to reassure you, I was scheduled for a LAVH May 25.
Went in to surgery with known fibroids and very heavy periods.
My doctor did say there was always the chance they would have to convert to a TAH.
Well as it turned out, my uterus was too large to do a LAVH, they showed me pictures of it and it looked like a bag full of superballs.
They had already done the belly button insicion as well as the two cuts on the side of my abdoman, and then had to make the bikini inscion also.
Well anyway my point is that I have done remarkably well!!! I was sore for a couple days but not unbearable. I am approaching my 4 week point and I feel great!
I do feel like it is good to get up and move around. Days when I have layed around more I seemed to feel stiff. I know each person has to do what suits them best, this has been good for me.
I was in the Hospital on Friday and came home Sunday, and even went for a 2 block walk with DH and the kids.
I wish you well, I am so glad I have had this done. It's nice to know I am in charge of my life and activities instead of my periods!!!
