TVH on 01/08/07

Had uterus and cervix removed vaginally on 01/08/07 (fibroids). Doctor said that she had to cut the uterus into pieces to remove it (about the size of a grapefruit). Had to try 6 times to get the IV in. I got to the hospital at 11am but they were running ahead and got going right away. Only spent 1 night in hospital - not much pain. Only nausea was when the morphine drip was stopped. Around 3am got up and walked around, left around 11am the following morning. Moving slowly - pain not too bad after a couple of day. Little to no bleeding just some pink/light brown spotting. I get tired easily and have to remind myself to not overdo things. I guess it's harder since I don't have any outward signs of having surgery. Post op visit scheduled on 01/24/07 with plan to return to work approx 4 weeks from surgery date.

It is completely normal to be moving slowly with a TVH. I had a TVH and was tired and sore for almost 6 weeks. We have had a lot of work done inside, even though no stitches show, we had major surgery, and this requires rest , healthy eating ,and a little walking to get us through our recovery .

Here are some helpful Post-op articles that may help you :
