OK so I was wondering some things about being post-op...First Why is my pee cloudy? Does everyone hurt after they BM? OK this will sound silly but does your other organs slide down when they remove things? And I am wanting to be intimate is it just because my hormones are all over the place? I mean I am in pain at night. oh just sort of a check point if I can ask...how long does everyone take meds afterwards? I am trying to only take them at night, but my then I am pretty bad and end up needing two pills.

Thanks for any info and sorry for overloading

Hello Chant,

Welcome to the other side.
Cloudy could be from the meds. Not everyone hurts after BM, but I always knew when I had to go. (bloating, gassy) Stool softeners are a god send.
Your organs don't generally move most are "stuck" where they are supposed to be, but you had alot done in there so don't push it.
The intimate part not really sure, it could be just that you really like your significant other. But your hormones are probably still all over the place. All I can truly say on that is, not before 6 weeks is anything supposed to penetrate you.
Everyone is different with there meds, take them as you need to. If your body is not working on pain management it is better equipped to work on healing.
There is alot of information to help throughout this site. Look for the "hysterectomy check points" at the top left of the page.
Make sure to take care of yourself and take it easy.

Hi Chant 1979
Welcome to Hystersisters! (((Jessica))) covered everything pretty well. I'll just add that it's pretty common to have the super-charged hormones that give you that strong desire to be intimate. Sometimes they last and sometimes not. Just remember that it's important to be released by your dr before you actually act upon them.

Everyone is different with how much pain medicine they need. I agree, it's much better for you to take them as you need them and to stay ahead of the pain. Some women have good success interchanging over the counter pain meds. It's good to try some and see what might work for you. I didn't use mine around the clock, but I used them on and off for several weeks. I had a lot done and struggled to do much of anything without using something.

I hope everything goes smoothly for you. Keep us posted on your progress.
's, Rita

My DR sent me home with orders to get collace for a stool softner and I don't think I could get along without it.

As for the intamate part since I don't have a significant other I'm not even thinking about it.

Keep feeling better and it will soon be normal again.

I've got the hormone thing going too. Not really like me.
The first 3 days I took my pain meds like clockwork. The next two days I went to once a day and at night. At day six I switched to over the counter medicine. I think I've been lucky with my pain. BM still is painful sometimes and mostly the pain is a dull ache. I can finally sleep on my side, but I get some pain afterwards.
Good luck with feeling better.

I had LAVH/BSO and I was afraid of not being able to get out of my bed. I have a freeflow waterbed. I have been sleeping on my stomach since last Friday night. That is what I am enjoying the most.

My organs did resettle, which was a good thing. My fibroid was large enough that it was cutting off drainage from one kidney, and as my surgeon reported, pressing on my bowel and just about everything else.

At my 7 week post-op(he wasn't worried and neither was I; I'd been to his office 1 wk post-op to get staples out), he was gently palpating to see if everything had gone back to where it was supposed to be.

As he did this, I said, "I imagined all the organs moving back to where they lived - getting furniture out of storage, adding a few throw-pillows and plants..." He smiled.

HECK - I would HOPE they moved! And they did.

DON'T BE A "HERO" WITH YOUR PAIN MEDS. Take them as directed and/or when you need to. You need rest to heal, and your body needs to focus on healing and not fighting pain, as other sisters here already said.

Relax and remember to
