TAH due to enlarged uterus

I had my TAH on Tues, 6/2/09. My surgery lasted about 1.5 hours. Was in recovery about 1.5 hours and then taken to my room. This was my first surgery so I was very nervous and unsure. Even started doubting my decision the two days prior. I had had several ultrasounds done over the last 2 years. My uterus was 20 week size due to numerous large fibroids. I started getting UTIs and was having a lot of pain in the months before my TAH. My uterus and cervix were removed through a bikini incision. It weighed 5 pounds and the largest fibroid was 14 cm around. I was kept an extra night in the hospital due to alot of pain I was having and went home on Fri, 6/5. Had the staples (about 25) out on 6/9. I have not had much pain with my incision at all. It seems to be all in my abdominal area.

I didn't know what to expect during this entire process but this site was extremely helpful in preparing me for my surgery. I spent many hours researching here and am very grateful for this site.
