Length of hospital stay?

My doc said I would be in the hospital just overnight for a laparscopic vaginal assist hysterectomy with removal of ovaries as well. JUST OVERNIGHT????? I have talked with a few people who had similar, and they were in for at least 3 days. Does this sound right? I am so afraid of pain!!!! YIIIKES!!!!!!!! How long is the average stay with no problems?

My doctor told me over night for my TVH or I could plan on staying about 3 days if I had the TAH, which I'm desperately hoping doesn't happen.

I had a LAVH on Thursday at 7AM and was released by noon on Friday. The first couple hours after surgery were painful but from the time I left Motrin did the job for pain. There were a couple of times I took the stronger pills when I overdid it, but for the most part I felt fantastic. Good Luck!

I had a LAVH/BSO and was supposed to be in only one night. I had a slight complication so I spent two nights. You really only need one night and even with my complication I could have gone home the next day but I am a cancer patient and my dr did not want to take a chance to I did spend the extra night. It really is a piece of cake surgery.

I stayed 2 nights for my TVH. My surgery wasn't until 1 p.m., but the next day I was having more than normal pinkish discharge, so they kept me another night to watch things.

I stayed one night for the LAVH. I walked out of the hospital the next day. (They didn't require me to have a wheelchair.) I know this sounds odd, but I barely had any pain (just gas pains and pain in my shoulder from the LAP) and took meds only once for a headache. the pain I had before surgery from my periods was so severe that this was more manageable. It really wasn't bad at all for me. But, everyone is different. Good luck to you.
