Welcome Home & Congrats

I was wondering how long you were in? I will be having an LAVH/LSO, with bladder sling and A&P repairs. Did you have an abdominal incision with the bladder sling? I was told I would have a vaginal and abdominal incision for the sling procedure. and a superpubic tube, which i might end up coming home with. He said it would be in no less than 2 days and no more than 2 weeks. I'm really nervous, and yes this waiting is making it worse. I'm glad you are doing well. Get rest...

Yes I had a bladder sling and right now there is a bandage on the incision which I cannot remove. The doctor said the dressing will loosen as I shower everyday so I imagine it will be off in a few days. The incision cannot be more than an inch or two.

I have surgery on Wednesday at 8:00 and came home Thursday at 3:00. I'm not sure what the tube/drain is that you are speaking of. I had a cath. when I woke up from surgery and I still have one in because I couldn't pee on my own yet but the doctor said that wasn't unusual at all.

I hope that answers some of your questions.

Good luck and I hope you have a speedy recovery.
