LSH becomes TLH with possible TAH. Anyone else?

My Hysterectomy is scheduled for September 13th. Less than a week away. I saw my doctor yesterday to go over the surgery and sign the consent form. The consent form is definitely enough to scare you.

I was originally scheduled for a LSH. However after discussing some of my concerns with the doctor I am now scheduled for a TLH. The expectation is in and out the same day with recovery taking only 2 weeks. However my doctor did state that because I have had 2 c-sections it is possible they will not be able to get to my cervix without a abnominal incesion. Which means I could wake up to find I had a TAH which means 3 days in the hospital and longer recovery time.

I don't know if I should pack or not pack for my hospital stay? What do I pack? Reading materials? Last time I was in the hospital I was having a c-section. I had a baby to take care of. This time I am the only one I need to take care of.

Tomorrow morning I go in for my pre-op appointment at the hospital. I am guessing they will help me better prepare for what to expect at the hospital.

Re: LSH becomes TLH with possible TAH. Anyone else?

Anytime someone is scheduled for a hysterectomy, there is always a chance that they may have to have a TAH. It all just depends on what the doctors find and if they are able to get to the things they need to get to, like in your case.

As far as packing, I would maybe pack a few things just in case and maybe leave the bag in the car or even at home. Someone can always bring it to you if you need it.

If you are going to pack, I wouldn't pack much, you won't need it if you are anything like me. I brought a book, but could not see well enough to read the entire time I was in the hospital.

I just watched TV, slept, or walked the halls.

I packed chapstick, lotion, tooth brush and paste, slippers, and comfy clothes to go home in and that was it!

Hopefully you don't have to have the TAH (although it's not as bad as some think) and you can go home that night!
