5 days post op

After 5 years I finally got the courage to go in and have my surgery. I had to have a hysterectomy w/ posterior and anterior cystocele/rectocele repair. I am doing well after only 5 days. Bleeding is minimal, however I had to go home w/ a catheter. I'm getting used to it, but it's a hassle to deal with esp at night. All in all I feel pretty good considering. I am trying to wean off the pain killers, but I'm no hero and will take them if I need to. Also, be prepared for constipation. I finally moved my bowels after 5 days! I was taking stool softeners and miralax which finally worked today! No straining so it was a rough few days. I have been using a scopolomine patch for nausea. Everyone has been very supportive. I wish you all a good result and don't worry....it's not that bad

I'm glad you're doing well! Did you have vision issues with the patch? Curious because I did, which freaked me out until I realized it was a side effect. Best wishes in your recovery!
