Length of hospital stay

I'm reading where so many of you stayed in the hospital 3, 4, and even 5 days after surgery. What type of hysterectomy did ya'll have? I'm having laperscoptic on sept 8th, but my doctor said I should only have to stay in the hospital one night. Is my type of surgery less serious than what ya'll had and that's why he said I'lll only have to stay overnight? I was happy that I'd only have to stay one night, but now I'm a little worried that I may need to be in there longer since so many of you did.

Re: Length of hospital stay

Jules -

I am so glad you found us.

I had the daVinci robotic procedure and was in overnight. I was released before 24 hours of getting to my room on surgery day so it was considered an outpatient procedure. This is very common for laproscopic procedures.

On the right side of the screen under events you will find information on pre-op chats. There will be one this week and you might find it informational.

Re: Length of hospital stay

I'm having a laparoscopy, getting my uterus and left ovary out, but my doctor said I would be leaving the hospital the same day. I'm going in at 8:30. Has anyone else left the same day?

Hi! I had a LAVH on Aug. 6th at 7:00 am. I had uterus and cervix removed. I was home by 5:00pm the same day.

Re: Length of hospital stay

I gad a TAH/BSO with a large vertical incision to remove a huge ovarian tumor (cantaloupe size). I spent two nights in the castle. That was plenty for me because that bed made my back and tail bone hurt as bad as the actual surgery. Once I got home, I rested and felt better than I did in the castle with all the good pain meds and nursing care.

TAH/BSO 8-12-10

Re: Length of hospital stay

I will have LAVH and probably bladder repair. My surgeon told me I will have to stay 5 - 10 days in hospital.

Re: Length of hospital stay

I had a surpacervical hyst (kept ovaries and cervix) and a 39 staple incision and only stayed 2 nights. Makes sense to me that you would need less time at the castle. Your doc knows your situation better than anyone, trust him/her : )
