Hello! I am new here. I just had a TVH on May12th and I am home today. I am feeling good but I do have severe back pain, like I am in back labor! The nurse's have said this is from the position of where I was on the operating table - it was for the docs convenience - not mine!

It has not even been 24 hours and I am up and walking. I am off to take a nap now! Thanks fellow hyster-sisters!

Had LAVH on Monday May 12th. Have felt really good. Hardly any pain medicine. Got home yesterday around 3:00. Some gas, but doctor told me to take milk of magnesia. Have had diarrhea since last night, but slept until 8:00 this morning. Still no pain or bleeding. Going to eat a light breakfast and no more milk of magnesia. going to start using prune juice and other fiber to help with bowel movements. Doctor said to just take it easy and that I could drive next week. Probably won't though, though I might drive myself for my 2 week checkup on May 27th. We'll see. the hardest part will be not doing anything, but I have lots of books and my laptop so I should be good to go. Hope everyone else is doing fine with their surgery.

Day 3

Today is day 3 for my LAVH. Feel pretty good, other than being tired. No bleeding, and only have taken Motrin 800 since Monday. Just have no energy what so ever. Walked to my mailbox this morning to get paper and walked around the yard for about 10 minutes. Ate my oatmeal and had a small bowel movement and now I'm ready for a nap. I am 50 and had everything removed. Did anybody else have everything out? My doctor put me on Climara .05 mg even though I have been going through menopause for 2 years. I hope that I don't have to stay on it. Is anyone else holding fluid in your hands and face? [
