TLH w/bilateral Salpingectomy 12/21/07

Hello Everyone!
This is My first post. I had a TLH w/bilateral salpingectomy on Friday. I went to the OR around 12:30/1:00 pm. I'm not sure what time I was taken to my room but I came home around 9:00 pm that night. I remember having to walk and urinate before being d/c'd from the hospital but not much of anything after coming home.
The reason for my post is I'm experiencing abdominal pain mainly on the left side. Hardly any pain on the right side. When lying down in a still position I don't have any pain. It's getting up & down from a sitting or lying position when the pain is extruciating. Also I'm still having problems with BM's (although I'm taking MOM as directed). I've been walking around the house-trying to stay mobile. I was told by one lady that she did not experience any pain.
Is it normal to experience this type of pain post op?

TLH w/bilateral Salpingectomy

Hi there!

When I had my LSH/BSO, I also had a lot of pain on the left side when I would try to get up and down. It was rather painful and bothersome for about 4 weeks. When I saw my doctor and asked about it, he said that was the side that he removed all the organs on. So, I guess the laprascopic tool on that side bruised the tissues and muscles more than the others.

Tips that worked for me:
I slept in the recliner for those first 4 weeks, and I also used one of those disposable bed protectors to sit on for the first few days. It made sliding back and forth on the chair easier - my clothes would hang and it would require more effort to move without it. Also, I found having help to get up and down for those first days very helpful. My hubby would hold my left hand and let my pull towards the right as I got up (diagonal vs pulling straight out from the body). Made a difference in not increasing the pain on that left side.

If you are sleeping on your bed, be sure your roll over on your side and push up with your arm - instead of using your trunk muscles to sit up. Also, maybe sleep on the right side of the bed so that you are rolling over on your right side and pushing up with your right arm.

But if your pain gets worse or you aren't sure about the cause/source - call your doctor and ask! Take it easy and rest! Lots of water to keep from getting dehydrated as well!

Thank you for responding so quickly. I appreciate the tips and will use this info to help me with my recovery. I'm going into my 5th post op day and looking forward to being pain free. If the pain gets worse I will call my doctor. Thanks again.
