First good "side effect" from LAVH?

I'm hoping anyway! I was getting up 2 or 3 times a night to pee for years. Now I occasionally get up one time! This is huge for me. I'm guessing my enlarged uterus was pressing on my bladder when I was laying down. Because I didn't have this problem during the day. I am so much better.

That was my issue too! It does feel good to finally go normally and not so much--embarrassing at work too! :-p

I too can sleep through the night without having to get up to pee. I think I might actually be able to with out leaking too.

How long did it take for you to get to this point. I'm 5 days post op. Let's just say I had some complications and had to be re opened on day 3. I pee for 10 - 15 seconds. I wait a minute and have round 2. Sometimes I wait a little more and have round 3. My urine output is good at an average of 300 after the final round. Is this common? I'm also getting up a few times a night

I also am benefitting from this "side effect". ABITWITCHIE, I was like this immediately. If you are still getting up at night at your next doctor appointment, I'd bring it up for sure.

I was pretty much like this from day 3 on. I did not have pee issues. He did do a cystoscopy on me to make sure there was no bladder endo or other problems. I would call your dr. I'm sorry you are still having problems.
