I thought the dr was doing it laparoscopy, but he did the incision where my cesections were done, which I am 100% fine with, I sort of wanted it that way. The dr said when he got in there I had endometriosis everywhere, even in my abdominal wall, and he had never seen anything like that before, and I made a good decision. He couldn't believe that I only complained of pain 2 wks out of the month,and sometimes hardly at all. My blood count dropped alot after surgery & i had a fever, so they did an u/s and found I had a hematoma, so he went vaginally & used a swab to poke it & drain it., started me on antibiotics, and iron, and I had to stay another day. I was released Friday, and so glad to be home.
Yesterday, I got diarrhea x5, and I am thinking its from the dulcalax I took for constipation. I continue to have fever of 100.4 mostly at night off and on. I have had hot flashes, but mostly lots of chills. I was wondering if this is all common. I will try to read thru the posts, but jsut cant sit here too long.
He was going to start me on estrogen right away, but due to how bad the endo was, he wants me to wait awhile for it to die off as much as possible(he said estrogen feeds the endo). He also said if the hot flashes get too bad, he will put me on progestin, but would like to see me go without if I can handle it. The only other thing I wonder, is that when I urinate I feel alot of pulling type sensation inside my tummy. Everything else feels just like when I had my csections. I go tomorrow to get my staples removed... were you all stapled or stitched??? My cesect were dissolvable stitches, so I was shocked to see he did staples, of course he is a different dr.
Thanks for reading my book I just needed to speak out, I only know one person that has gone thru this, and she wasnt home when I called, so I jumoed on here to get some support.
Thanks in advance.
Joani
Sounds like a tough week. Great that the doc discovered how severe the endo was, and got it all removed. It also sounds like once you are healed you should feel much better than before. Well wishes. I did get disolvable stitches, but I have read entries from lots of women who had staples. Sounds like it must be pretty common for a hysterectomy. Take care.

I had a TAH on Monday 3/4. During my surgery I had some respiratory issues and my right lung collapsed, so they actually had to stop operating for about 30 minutes. When I stabilized they had to position my body more head down to where I could breathe easier, so the machines usually used to hold you open they couldnt use so 2 people had to hold me open for the remaining 3 hours it took to finish the surgery. All in all I was left with 20 staples in my belly. The first night was awful, and the second day was better. I came home on wednesday afternoon. I wish I could report that I feel better, but I actually dont. During the surgery I was given an entrathecal (sp?) for post op pain, and now I am left with a spinal migraine. I had those with my 2 children with my c-sections and the spinal migraines lasted for 2 weeks! I am praying it dosent. I am having a hard time with BM's and gas, its awful. I just feel drained.
I am sure theres a light at the end of the tunnel soon. My DH is being just awesome! I am very grateful for him. I hope everyone starts to feeling better soon!
Debbie
Debbie take care. I hope you have a better day soon. Interesting about the migraines. I was wondering if the hyste would make my migraines dissapear, and instead I've had one daily since the surgery. But! I do have a prescription for imatrex tablets and they kick in quickly and within an hour I'm headache free, so can't imagine what this must be like for you. The headache alone makes things so difficult. I wonder if there is something you could get for the spinal migraine (never heard of it).

HOME! No hysterectomy

Went in for stage 3 uterine prolapse repair and a and p repairs. The plan was to leave as much as possible but would do a hysterectomy if warranted.
The doctor did the anterior repair and suspended the uterus and fixed the prolapse. He decided that the posterior repair was not needed and that I could live with it. He said it wasn't very large and I can always do it out-patient if it became a problem. He felt by fixing the prolapse the rectocyle would not be so bad.
My butt is sore! But otherwise feel fine. The dr. said to lay low for 3 days, little to no walking, etc. Then after that I can walk, drive, etc. Many go back to work after 2 weeks with these repairs but because I teach 1st grade he felt I should be off for 6 weeks.
Hope all is well with everyone else.

I came home on 3/9 from a LSH, so it's now 4 days post-op. My castle experience was great and I've had hardly any pain ever. I've only had ibuprofen even since I got out of recovery, so it's really not so bad (at least in my case).

I'm tired, but other than that, no more cramps and no more bleeding. Whew! Glad this is done. It wasn't nearly as big of a deal as I expected it would be.

Remember girls ~
Who needs a uterus when you've got a perfectly good totebag?

Zula
45 years. LSH on 3/8 for fibroid. Retained ovaries and cervic.

One week out, and feeling lots more alert. Sometimes the need for a nap sneaks up quickly. My daughters took me to church on Sunday and that pretty much wiped me out for the day. Still have bowel issues, even with lots of water & stool softener. Pain is controllable with acetaminiphen and ibuprofen. I walk around inside the house for a few minutes every couple of hours and have another drink of water, and look forward to walking outside next week. Inside is getting a little old!

Hi girls, on day 8 for me. I have been reading everyones posts, I think its hard for us to give each other advice on this thread because we are all in the middle of this post op stuff. I was feeling good till last night, havent taken a pain pill in two days etc. Then last night I had a BM and started bleeding, I havent bled for about 3 days, so I was mad and disappointed, and of course back to bed for me. Im learning to take everyday one at a time as it comes, also learning to not tell people Im actually doing pretty good because the next day may be rough, dont want my family and friends to get the wrong impression and expect too much from me...lol. I do have to say that urinating has gotten better. So has my energy, which is good and bad, its good because I feel better, bad because it is making it harder for me to stay down and in bed. Heres a thought, have someone go get you Dan in real life, I watched it last night and enjoyed it, so that is my best advice! Take care ladies.

Bad experience...slow recovery

Well, it's 3/12. I'm still in the hospital, hopefully going home tonight. I had a TAH/BSO on 3/10. Nothing has gone as I was told it would. My day nurses are rude and upsetting, my night nurse is wonderful, but I sleep through most of it. My doctor won't explain anything to me or answer my questions and I hurt so bad. I woke up being told that I couldn't see my husband, I was on morphine and no one told me that it wasn't a good idea to drink sprite. So I ended up throwing that up... guess I kept housekeeping in business that first night. Yesterday, they took out my Foley cath, IV, O2 N/C, and removed all of my monitors. I'm on Percocets and Motrin now. I found out pretty quickly that I'm allergic to Vicodin. And the Darvocets are more like M&Ms as well as they help with my pain. I'm glad that everyone has had good experiences so far. I know now what kind of nurse I DON'T want to be when I graduate. Hope yall's healing is smooth and quick. Good luck yall.

Sorry that you aren't having a good experience at the castle, and that they aren't treating you like a princess I don't understand them not letting you see your husband, was that just in recovery or period? I can understand the recovery room part, but other than that it doesn't make sense. I'm also sorry that they are not helping to ease your pain. I hope that things get better for you.
