Maybe call doctor today and ask before their office closes-Good luck. I am still taking an occasional percocet, but balancing with nausea. I am not sure what is causing it, but I am nauseated periodically and that seems the most likely cause.

Most DR's offices have answering services. You may want to contact your DR office today to see what kind of service they have for emergencies over the weekends. Chances are if your DR is on-call the service will be able to reach him. I havew used this type of service in the past and the DR always calls me back. Hope this helps and you find some relief soon.

Wishing you a speedy recovery without all the pain!

Dear Eds Sis,

Are you not able to reach your MD at all hours of the day or night? If your MD isn't available, isn't there another MD covering for him/her? I would just call your MD's office and find out how you can go about having them call in another prescription for you over the weekend, should you need it...that way you can stop stressing out about percocet and work on passing some more gas I hope this helps!

Had TAH on Tuesday morning at 7:30. I know I had five fibroids and an enlarged uterus, but don't know any other particulars. I did get to keep my ovaries. On morphine pump in hospital, but honestly the anti-inflammatory shots probably helped more. Sent home with percocet and motrin. Came home yesterday after lunch and don't feel too, too bad. Enjoyed sleeping in this morning and not being poked, picked and prodded from 6-10 a.m. Two rounds around the culdesac this morning and afternoon and now I'm ready for a nap. I really appreciate all the information left on this site. It's been very helpful.

TAH April 17

Yay, it's over with. I'm so glad that's done. I had my TAH with cervix, ovaries, fall tubes and uterus removed. Doctor found endomedriosis worse than he's seen in awhile and tons of fibroids. I honestly wanted to die right after surgery and first entering the hospital room, but felt so much better the next day. I was up walking and peeing on my own. I had surgery Tuesday at 10am and was discharged Thurs morning right after breakfast. The first day home I stayed on pain medicine and slept a good bit, but today, my 2nd day home, I've been walking a lot and even went upstairs (very slowly). Each day gets better. I even took my first shower today. Still no stupid BM yet though, but I'll give it a day or so. I was on solid foods right away. I had a clear liquid breakfast that first day in the hospital, but I wanted a cheeseburger, so the doctor let me have one for lunch. I even teased the doctor before surgery and asked him very politely to make my incision as small and neat as he could. When the nurse took off the bandage she was amazed at what a good job he did. Like I said, I'm glad it's over, but I sure hate not being so independent right now. I can't bend or lift. I'm doing as the doc requests because I don''t want any relapse..that's for sure. My incision was glued.

Hope everyone is doing well! Oh, and this morning I was finally able to lay on my side without too much pain. I was so tired of laying on my back. The hardest part is getting out of bed without bedrails. I have a ton of pillows though so that helps. I feel so old during all this. :-)

Things were a little more interesting than planned with mine. The Doc blew me up like a balloon and I stopped breathing...so he swapped back to the nether regions and removed everything but my ovaries. Still a bit dizzy but I'm home and having very little pain whatsoever.

There's No Place Like Home!

Had my TAH (vertical incision) on Tuesday morning. Took longer than anticipated and lost a bit more blood than usual, but other than that the doctor said the surgery went well. Was on morphin pump for first 24 hours then tylenol #3. Catheter was removed after 24 hours and was able to pee right away. The only problem I am having is watery diarehha (ok, too tired to spell it properly, sorry). They wanted to keep me in hospital until today, but I really couldn't rest there, so was able to come home yesterday mid-afternoon. I am very tired (low blood, which they will check again next week) and light headed. Not too much pain, but my bowels certainly feel like someone was in there doing a tap dance on them. I also had a "hemavac"? drains excess blood off .... holy crap, when they took that out it felt like it was wrapped around every internal organ I had! geez. oh well. Very glad to be home and am now only on extra-strength tylenol and eating foods that will try to "solidify" me. I will get more info on my surgery from doctor, next week when I go in to have my staples (22) removed. Hope everyone is recovering nicely.

Had my TAH on Tuesday and came home Thursday. Tuesday in recovery was brutal. Once I got started on morpine though, I was a little better. My husband thought I was actually going to be in for about a week, thats how bad Tuesday was.

But when he came back Wednesday, I was like a completely different person. They took the cath out and I had showered and was ready to go walk and move and walk and walk. Got some really bad gas pain, which was complicated by the morphine but walking seemed to help.(Along with a laxative/stool softener) I couldny get comfy sitting still so I just kept moving. I just admit, I was a little irritated when the nurse told me to go for a long walk, but she was right!!!

I came home the next morning, eventhough I was spiking a temp(101.5) at night. They did a urine screen which was negative and every thing else was ok. I think I might just be weird.

Home is pretty good. The biggest thing right now is that I dont have the bedrails to help me get up and down. I spend a lot of time in the recliner and positioned on the couch with a bunch of pillows but the actual up and down is my biggest problem. I have a glider-rocker too which is really nice. I guess using those muscles to rock/glide is a good thing. It helps with the gas a bit too.

I'm sooo happy to be home. I hope things continue on this trend. I go back to doc on Monday to get the staples
out. That should be a treat. They are a little pinchy now.

My need for pain meds is decreasing. Percocet is too strong during the day. Too sedating and I really just dont need it anymore. And I was taking it regularly for pain before the surgery. I'm graduating down to Darvocet for a while. Motrin should be good enough soon, but I'm having a lot of acid-reflux post-op, so I'm waiting a few more days for that.

Keep your fingers crossed girls. Things are looking pretty ok!!
