bilateral salpingo oophorectomy recovery

Thursday, September 23, 2021, I had bilateral salpingo oophorectomy done laparotomy assisted robotically. My BP dropped in post op and I was in recovery for 3.5 hours. Was sent home with narco, anti nausea meds and ibuprofen. Trying to sleep in recliner last night with pillows. Yesterday it hurt / burned to void. That is fine today. In pain with abdomen. Cramping. Took GasX not working yet and no BP yet. Haven’t done much walking except to bathroom to pee. Trying to rest.

I am with you in spirit, girl!

Lots of fluids and walking will help you get your bowels moving again. Good luck!

bilateral salpingo oophorectomy recovery


The first night after my surgery, while I was still in the hospital, my BP bottomed out at 87/48; the nurse though I was dehydrated and kept pushing fluids, but in hindsight, I think it was more likely a reaction to the anaesthesia and the narcotic painkillers; when I went to see my family doctor 4 days later, after I'd had to discontinue the narcotic painkillers because they were making me throw up, my BP had returned to normal. For more comfortable night's sleep while reclining, I recommend a small pillow under your knees, and another one under the curve in your lower back. Burning with urination is a classic sign of a UTI, a common consequense of antiviotic use during surgery, which upsets the normal balance of good and bad bacteria inside your urinary tract, so I recommend seeing your doctor for proper diagnosis and treatment. A lack of BMs can cause gas to become trapped in your colon, so here are a few tips for that: walk as far as you're comfortable with; drink enough water so that your urine is clear or pale yellow; have some peppermint tea; start your day by drinking a glass of warm water with the juice of half a lemon, which can also help your body to clear out the anaesthesia and pain medications: make sure your diet includes 25-35 grams of fiber, but if you're nowhere near that, be sure to increase your intake slowly, because too much too soon can cause gas; fill up on magnesium from dark chocolate, leafy greens, pumpkin seeds, quinoa, and almonds; sit on the throne after every meal to stimulate the gastro-colic reflex, in which the stomach tells the brain that it's full, then the brain tells the colon to empty its contents, to make room for the new stuff coming in; avoid foods high in fermentable carbohydrates - search "Low FODMAPs Diet" for a comprehensive list of these foods. Best wishes for moving past this stage soon, and for continued health and healing!

Kare_Kare22,
How are you doing? Have you had a bm yet?

Keep pushing fluids and walk as much as you can tolerate. If you still haven’t gone, you may want to consider a liquid diet for a day or two…adding less solids until some are evacuated. It might make you feel better. Also, what I do to keep myself regular is to eat a serving of raisin bran each morning…lots of liquids, of course, and then 2 prunes with as much water as I can hold at 5:00pm if I haven’t gone by then. (I have a repeating alarm on my phone for this.)
Usually I am all “fixed” as soon as I wake up the next morning. ; )

Take care of yourself!

Re: bilateral salpingo oophorectomy

(((Kare_Kare22))), I'm sorry that you ended up in the ER but hopefully the doctors will figure out the cause of your fever and get you on medication to help you feel better soon.

You'll be in my thoughts and prayers. Please update us when you know more and feel up to it.

Oh no! I am so sorry to hear that you are in the ER!!

I had an infection early on also…CT, bloodwork, etc. Necessary evils, but hopefully they will figure everything out soon and get you back on the road to recovery. You are definitely in my prayers.
