Recovery Progress Reports for Hysterectomy dates Jun 10-Jun 16,2013

If your hysterectomy was between Jun 10-Jun 16,2013 this is the place to post your progress during your hysterectomy recovery.

If you have a question about your recovery, please start a new thread to receive answers and support for your concerns instead of including the question in your update! There is information on how to start a new thread in this link: New Here? or you can use this link: Post a New Topic in the Post-Op forum.

Post how you are doing here when you are home and well enough to sit a few minutes at your computer.

We hope you are recovering well with plenty of rest and water and a bit of walking. Don't forget to pamper the princess!


How to use the Recovery Progress Reports thread:

  • 1. This thread is for the purpose of sharing updates on your recovery as you heal from your hysterectomy.

  • 2. Generally, ONE or TWO posts on this thread per member/per day is adequate to share your daily progress and to share encouragement with your surgery week Sisters.

  • 3. Remember to start a new thread on the Post-Op message board to ask your questions.

  • 4. The Progress Report threads now begin in our special forum for all Hysterectomy Recovery Reports and will remain there for you to always find your discussion.

  • 5. Remember all the love and support you got here as a pre-op member? Now it's YOUR turn to give back to the women in the Pre-Op Hysterectomy Support forum. Extend your hand and your hugs in replies to our pre-op ladies in waiting. This will complete our circle of women helping women!

  • 6. You can also share support and experiences with post-op members in all phases of recovery in the Post-Op Hysterectomy Support forum by replying on the new threads they create.

back from the castle.

This is your own support group, to share your experiences, good and bad, and to be there for each other.
Totalhysta and I are here as your Sunshine Sisters to give you any extra help you need.

Your recovery starts from now, so put yourself first for a while, even if you are not used to it.
Have a look at the Hysterectomy Checkpoints at the top too. They really helped me a lot through the first few weeks.

Re: Recovery Progress Reports for Hysterectomy dates Jun 10-Jun 16,2013

to all the new sisters,

As mrslibrarylady said we are here to give any extra support you may need, we have been there where you all are at the beginning,

A few hints for you,
1) drink lots of water - helps flush the anesthetic out of your system

2) stay on top of your pain, do not try and tough it out, your body will need all the energy it can get to heal so do not waste it on suffering with pain

3) follow your doctor's instructions

4) As mrslibrarylady said put your self first and rest, nap, sleep, doze, read, repeat

5) mini walks will help move the gas, and anesthetic through your system

Remember

Re: Recovery Progress Reports for Hysterectomy dates Jun 10-Jun 16,2013

Hi all! I'm finally a princess and so far so good! My surgery was at 9:00 and the last thing I remember was anesthesiologist telling me I was going on a little vacation. LOL!

I ended up losing an ovary because she found a cyst on it but the other one looked good so I'm happy to have one left.

Doc said uterus weighed almost a pound and was three times it's size. Other than losing the ovary everything went as expected.

I've slept most of the day and after having the cath removed have used the bathroom twice.

I get to go home in a couple more hours and sleep in my own bed!

June 10th surgery

My hyst was June 10th. My gyn originally planned on a tlh but once he got the camera inside he found that there were a number of surprises. Apparently there were cysts in my fallopian tubes and the fibroids were too low and too large to take out that way. He ended up doing an abdominal incision. My pathology came back this morning. He said my uterus was 4 times the size it should have been but everything came back benign. I still have both ovaries, just no tubes, cervix or uterus. My recovery is going well. I will be discharged later this morning. I had a bad night last night because I fell asleep on my side. When I woke up the pain was unbearable and it took most of the night to get it under control. My pca was dc'd, along with my catherer, 24hrs after my surgery. I've been on percocet and toradol since. Other than the issue last night, I have felt fine. I have been up walking and showering. I'm still SUPER SORE but I am quickly learning my limitations and not to push them. I hope everyone else is recovering well!

Day two: I am so totally amazed at how easy this has all been. I feel so blessed to feel so good today! There is a little soreness and of course coughing is tough, but for the most part I sit here and think, "Did I really just have a hysterectomy yesterday??"

I have a had a couple good bouts with gas pain, but that seems to be easing as the day goes by.

I hope everyone else is comfortable and healing well today too!!

Hi all. I am 37 and a mother of 3. My surgery was yesterday. I had a full hysterectomy to remove everything. Ovaries were removed due to constant presence of cysts on both sides and everything else due to other pains. I am grateful to have found this group with such helpful info.

Re: Recovery Progress Reports for Hysterectomy dates Jun 10-Jun 16,2013

I'm alive, yay! Lol! DvH Surgery started much later than scheduled, around noon. After being so incredibly scared, I realize now it was all for nothing. I had everything but the ovaries removed, including 2 ovarian cysts (one was the size of a salad plate! Omg!!) catheter was out before I woke up and I was discharged by 6! I'm not really in pain - just a crampy discomfort similar to the ones I USED to get every month, so no biggie. Have Percocet and ibuprofen,able to side-ish sleep with the help of small pillows, but no matter how I lay it's a little uncomfortable. Here's hoping the rest of our recoveries are boring and uneventful!
