SAH - Including Bladder TVT & Rectocele Repair

From the Abdominal Hysterectomy Stories Articles List

I decided to have a hyst when the dr told me the bladder prolapse, rectocele (rectum prolapse) and uterine prolapse were not going to get better. I went in on march 22, 2006 at 5:30 am and went into surgery at 7am. The surgery lasted about 3 hours. I don't remember anything from that day. The surgeon had me on IV Dilauded for pain since I can't tolerate Morphine. It worked great for pain relief but made me sleep the whole day. The next day, thursday, they came in and took out the catheter and the leg compression things. I was able to get up and walk, with a lot of burning pain in my incision! OUCH! I found that walking right before pain meds were due was a bad idea. As long as I held my Hyster sisters pillow to my tummy and had taken pain pills (Percocet) then walking was ok.

I did not have any appetite so I had no bowel sounds for a couple days. But once I made myself eat (the hospital I was at was great with that, they had a system like room service. There were many items to choose from and they tasted pretty good). Then after eating, things got moving.
I stayed at the hospital from wednesday until saturday March 25 around lunchtime. The first 10 days were horrible! Lots of pain, lots of gas, no energy.
Now at 3 weeks post op, feeling pretty good, no real pain from the tvt or rectocele but the abdominal incision can get painful at times.
I hope everyone who has a hyst can feel regret free about it and find life pain free too! Hugs Raymo
