Instructions from doctor vs. here

I was wondering if anyone else is finding out that the surgeon and the doctors didn't tell you what to expect? For instance I didn't know I had stitches that could come thru the incision and to pull them and snip the end so they will go back under the skin so they can dissolve.
I've learned more on this form than what the professionals told me.

Re: Instructions

The vast majority of doctors have never had a hysterectomy . Still, the first and foremost authority for recovery is your doctor, the staff and your hospital. They can listen to their patients and share collective wisdom, but since recoveries run the gamut of experiences, it would take a dedicated website to cover it all. A website sorta like HysterSisters.

I completely agree! I have learned more on this site, then from the very basic instructions I got from the surgeon.
Can you tell me about the stitches thing? I have 2 poking out stitches on one incision and the doctor never mentioned anything at my 2 week post op. He said I didn’t need to worry about the incisions but now these 2 poking out stitches are irritating my skin as they brush up on my clothes.

Thanks!

Doctors never tell you what to expect, just important things to watch out for in discharge papers.

Have you ever heard from a car sales man that you get into an accident or the amount of annual maintenance you face? I see it the same way

I had open heart surgery in 2020 and when I went home I knew what to expect. This a new experience for me, not knowing what could happen.
