Large Fibroids - LSH/BSO Scheduled

hi I am having an LAVH LSO on Jan 20, at my pre-op appointment Jan 10 my doctor said I have an 18 week size uterus with one of the fibroids jutting off to the side, he feels this surgery is very doable as he specializes in laproscopic surgery. I did have to sign for a laparotomy just in case. My U/S shows multiple fibroids and a cyst. I have had 2 laroscopic procedures done and much prefer them to an open procedure. The recovery is also quicker. I hope all goes well with the both of us on Jan 20 best wishes for a successful LSH BSO. Hopefully we will have no surprises in the recovery room. Let me know how your surgery was. Thoughts and prayers to you.

Kathy - good luck. I had larger size (~5 month pregnancy) fibroid uterus with multiple jutting off to the outside & an ovarian cyst. I had 2 prev lap surgery (gall bladder & appendix) Did mine LSH - without open incision. First thing I did when I woke up was to check and make sure I didn't have a big incision!

I am 5 days out and feel tired and can't sit upright for too long but already my abdomen feels better. Restless - up multiple times at night. Sleep in a recliner.

I hope all goes well for you too. If you can - ask them for your pain pills early. That way you can fill them and be ready at home. Thats one of the hints I found on-line.
Good luck for a speedy recovery!

njdb44 had my surgery Jan 20 it took 4.5hrs doc said it was a mess in there but bless his heart only 4 tiny incisions and one big bruise, he managed to keep it laproscopic Yeah. I have the swelly belly and it is sensitive to touch but I feel pretty good. Hope your recovery is going well. I do have trouble sleeping at night but thats because I usually work nights 12hrs. I'm a night hawk.
