Hi, I had an abdominal hyst and was told that I would be in the hospital for 2 - 3 days. I ended up having to stay an extra day because of a reaction to morphine.

Click here for a list of good pre op questions. Some ladies print a copy and take it with them to their appointment. Be sure to add any other questions that you have so that you don't forget any

Best wishes.

As you can see, I'm having a TAH and panniculectomy (gee, is that in my tagline? if not, I'll add it). I was told I'd be in for 3 nights.

I had a TAH/BSO and Burch procedure, the doctor told me I should go in on Wed. and out by Friday. I had a bad night with gas on Thurs. which left me exhausted, so my doctor kept me an extra night. I went home Sat. morning.

The list of questions, that "jeanus" mentioned is great I added a few of my own questions and took the list with me to my pre op!My doctor was surprised at some of the questions but, he took his time and answered all of them! I guess some women are not prepared!

Good Luck!

I had an abdoninal hysterectomy and was told hospital stay would be 3-5 days. I left at the end of the third day.

I am having a TAH also and my DR told me that I would be in for 4 days. It depends on your insurance sometimes too.

I had TAH and went in on Tues. morning and came home on Thurs. about lunch time. I had not passed any gas before going home but was having bowel sounds I guess is why they let me go ahead and go home. I did have to pee on my own and keep solid food down.

At yesterday's pre-op visit, the Dr. told me I could come home late the next day if I felt up to it. With a C-section under my belt (quite literally) I vaguely remember what recovery was like and think perhaps 3 days in would be a more realistic time for me.

And about those terrific pre-op questions...Yet another reason to love this site!

My Dr. was so impressed with the Hyster Sisters pre-op questions list that he asked for a photo copy of it before I left the office! After he heard the description of all the great stuff that is on this site, he told me he was going to refer his hysterectomy candidates here! Yet another reason to respect this man!!!

I'm so glad I found you, HysterSisters!
