Pain afterwards question

Does it matter which procedure you have or is the pain about the same for all of them? I have heard it doesn't matter how big you get cut you body still thinks it's the same is that true

Re: Pain afterwards question

While I've never had a TAH, and can't speak on that, I feel like a vaginal hysterectomy (which I had) was less painful, since I didn't have the big incision on my stomach.

I have had my gallbladder and appendix removed and remember what it was like to have a scar. It's like you have to recover from the surgery and the incision!

HTH!

Really, a lot of it can simply depend on you! There are ladies with terrible pain with all surgery types, and ladies with little or no pain with all surgery types!

I had the LAVH and only remember pain one time and that was the day after surgery.

Re: Pain afterwards question

Jenmwhatley-I think I can answer your question, at least how it was for me. I had a VH with bladder sling and repairs done on Mar.23. Six weeks later on May 3, I had a DvH BSO with repairs that turned into an ABSO with repairs.

The vaginal route was painful at first, but by six weeks, I felt great. I also had some bladder issues, so had a catheter at home for ten days. Going the abdominal route, I think the pain lasted longer, and it was more difficult to move around with the stomach incision. The belly binder helped immensly. I am sure all the repairs added to my discomfort, but knowing what I know now, I wish I had done the entire surgery abdominally, instead of the two separate surgeries. I had my gall bladder removed lapriscopically-a piece of cake compared to my hysto. I see you are having a TLH. If you read the posts from other sisters, it seems they feel really well quicker with the laproscopic. We are all different, with different thresholds of pain, so it really all depends on you! Hope this gives you some insight. Best wishes!

Re: Pain afterwards question

I had a TAH and the pain for me was because of complications. I had another surgery 8/25 and the only thing really bothering me is the incision. The first 3-4 days were the worst. Other than that all I seem to have right now is mild period cramps. Over the counter meds are just fine. But like others have said, everyone is different and everyone heals different!!!!!

I had the davinci with 5 little cut's (not bad at all) I started feeling better after 2 weeeks. My dr messed up and cut my ureter in half so I had to go back in for another surgery 21 day's later and it was a abdominal cut 9 inches! This was MUCH harder to deal with! gettin up and down has a whole new meaning
Good luck with your upcoming surgery
