Hi Sisters,
This site truly is a blessing! I had a TAH on June 5. My recovery is going well with the occasional bowel problems and swelly belly to deal with. My question is, did anyone have their appendex removed at the time of surgery? My surgeon told me beforehand that if the appendix were easy to get to, they would take them out , which he did. Is this normal and does it add to the recovery time? Thanks for any input BeKindR

Hi-
Some Dr.'s routinely take out the appendix, some don't. Many OB-GYN's will ook at the appendix, then if they see a problem with it they will have the general surgeon on-call come in and take out the appendix.

This was one of my big ?'s pre-op because my mom insisted that I have the Dr remove it, but I didn't care. Mine looked fine, so the Dr. left it.

My Dr. said that it wouldn't increase recovery time at all if it were removed.

Best Wishes for a smooth recovery
