da Vinci hysterectomy

I am scheduled for my surgery March 6th, my Dr, recommended the da Vinci Hysterectomy as it is suppose to be easier on my recovery. Has anyone had this procedure and what can I expect??

da Vinci hysterectomy

Wonderful option if you can have it done - it is not without pain but things tend to settle down much faster than a open incision...the advantage is the surgeon's ability to work at a microscopic level and reduces the chance of nicking other organs and minimizes blood loss. You will have pain from the CO2 gas they instil in your abdomen to better visualize the uterus usually that pain comes on your first night and is hard to manage - my best suggestion is motrin and a heating pad on your shoulder..worked great for me it can last a couple of days until it is fully reabsorbed by your body. Talk to your surgeon about the post op recommendations but most women are mobile with limitations in 1-3 days...mind you this doesn't change the fact you have just had major surgery and your body will retalliate if you do too much too soon- there just isn't a big incision to remind you! Please feel free to email me if you have questions!
