It didn't hurt to have the staples out. I was scared too but felt just a tiny bit of pulling.

Linda, I hope your visit with the doc goes well today and that you get back to "proper healing" soon.

I am having a better day today after having diarrhea all day yesterday. It was exausting. I also had some cleaning help this morning so that makes me feel better too.

Had all my work done Thursday morning at 10:15 on 26th, came home Sunday night 29th. Terrible vomiting post op, lucky packing came out, catheter out could pee on my own right away, put me on pain pills instead of morphine, stopped the vomiting but got the worst case of sciatica and back pain I have had in years. In hospital would literally lay there yelling and crying my heart out whenever I lay down. They sent me home with an extra pair of legs.. I have crutches. Today is first day I could negotiate the basement so I could see how everyone is because hubby did not get me a computer for upstairs. Dreadfully tired, sick and light headed if I am up for very long and my bowels are frozen. Passing gas but I just cannot pass stools, there is absolutely no feelings of pushing motions at all.

Will post more about the whole experience later.. right now having checked in going back to rest.

Hi! I had mine (TAH BSO) one week ago today, and I can't believe how *good* I feel! I've been taking prescription strength ibuprofen, but no narcotics. Even with incision and soreness, and tiring easily, I think I feel better than I did *before* the surgery! (Is that possible, or is it just in my head??) My uterus was about 4 times the size it should have been, and I had lots of fibroid cysts. Was that condition bringing me down, without my knowledge??

Oh...for those worrying about that first BM, stay on the stool softeners, eat plenty of fiber, and I predict that first BM will really be no problem... I was nervous about mine too -- it took 3 or 4 days, but then I came about pretty naturally.

Hi sisters, reporting in. Had my LAVH 4/24 ,minor complications (cut major vessel) so another surgery 4/25 @10:30pm .Still able to go home 6:30pm 4/26. Even though had the worst headache, DR says from anesthisia?? Gas pain is TERRIBLE!! Who knew gas hurt that much?? Had no packing and not bleeding at all. Pressure pains way up inside is what bothers me now. Hard to sit , harder to stand for periods of time. Disapointing path report ,DR called Friday AM to deliver shocker. I had Uterine Cancer. What?? I see GYN-Oncologist tommorrow ,because they will want to take ovaries now and I find out what stage and what next. All this time I was told my problem was Adeno , polyps , and fibroids.Not looking forward to another surgery , but we gotta do ,what we gotta do, ya know
Heres to great recoveries for all !!

Maybe I will take my own gold star sticky so I can have the doc put it on my shirt cause I am going to be soooo brave.

Please do write back. I'm hoping that you, like I, will find that your fears were unfounded.

hi,
i am having split insicions issues too. 2.5 inches opened on day two in the hospital coughing and crying managed to pop several out staples and my wound sounds just like yours. my doc says that itwill close....and it is amazing the way the two ends of tissue will actually find each other and close. for the mean time i am keeping it taped with steri-strips and changing them after showering if need be.
it grosses me out to see it but i think today it looks less pink and is closing a bit more. she insists it s not infected but it has this ,,,funky smell.yuck.
good luck with yours and keep me posted if there are changes.

Hi,

Just got back from the Dr. and they are leaving mine open. I have to clean it once a day with peroxide and then cover it with gauze. They say it is not infected, which I am really grateful for and that it should heal up pretty fast. Looks gross though

Keep us all posted on yours too.

Linda

Okay... here's one I haven't seen mentioned. I am in the shower, and I'm feeling like something is in the lower 1/3 of my vagina. Like, you know, when the tampon didn't get pushed all the way in? So, I gently check to make sure nothing was coming out -- some packing that I didn't know was there, or my innards -- and nothing was there.

I'm also having more pain on coughing.

Now, I've been backing WAY off of the pain meds. AAMOF, I hadn't taken anything in the last 14 hours. Do you think this is just a matter of noticing more because I'm feeling more?

Sheila,
I think you probably are noticing and feeling more without the meds. I backed way of my meds too and just had to get on it again last night and this afternoon. I just think we might still need the meds. I feel a lot of stinging and pulling when I don't take meds. It gets rather uncomfortable. I do hate taking it though but for now I think we heal better if we are not in pain.

Best wishes to you

Helti
