Hi Cher,

My Doc told me the same thing. I'm also having surgery on 8/10. She said if I really needed too, I could stay for 2 days. I'm having a TVH. I hope I feel well enough to only stay the 1 day.

Good Luck on your surgery.

Hi, that does seem to be fairly normal. Many ladies go home the next day if all goes well. It does seem to depend on the type of hyst and what all needs to be done.

I had a tah/bso and was pre approved for 2 days. I had a reaction to the morphine in the drip and ended up staying for 2 extra days.
best wishes.

I had abdominal hyst. I was initially told 2 days, but stayed 3. I'm not really sure why, except they kept catheter in for second day because of the size of cyst.

I had a TAH and was pre-approved for 2 days, but I ended up staying in 3, because my bowels had a hard time kicking back in after surgery. I didn't get to eat until 2 days after my surgery, so the last day was more of a watch to see how I react to food sort of day.

i had a tah on 7-27 and was told 3-4 days. i got to home late Thursday the 29th after i passed gas and ate real food. there are certain little tests you have to pass. for open abdominal surgery you have to pass gas since the bowels are exposed to air during surgery and that disrupts the function. i think for vaginal surgery you have to urinate on your own, but the drs will tell you and won't let you go until you are ready. i think insurance approves another day if medically necessary, the initial dates are just guidelines. good luck, dee

Alright i am confused. My dr told me i will be staying atleast 5-6 days. Should I be concerned? Is it maybe because i have really young children or maybe something else could be wrong? Should i be freaking out about now?

i think the stay does depend on your home situation. you need more days if you have little ones. i don't, so i only needed the 3 days, dee
