Re: Vaginal hysterectomy...Feels like what after surgery?

I am going in for a Da Vinci vaginal hysterectomy tomorrow. My doctor really hinted at the fact that even though my outter incisions will be better then an abdominal hysterectomy, the incisions on the inside are all the same. That a hysterectomy no matter how it is performed, the internal healing is all the same. He did not want me getting carried away with the fact that I am having a laproscopic vs abdominal..

Re: Vaginal hysterectomy...Feels like what after surgery?

WOW thanks soooo much ladies! Looks like the surgery will be Feb 2,2012... My "return" date to work is March 19,2012... But they said it's just a date they used for temp disability. If I need more time they will give it. Now I'm starting to get nervous, lol, but it NEEDS to get done. Tired of IT just hanging around!

Re: Vaginal hysterectomy...Feels like what after surgery?

I was hoping to go back to work at least part time after about two weeks. I have a desk job and really hope I can back to work sooner rather than later.
I am having a vaginal hysterectomy with a/p repairs.

Re: Vaginal hysterectomy...Feels like what after surgery?

Hi- i am 5 days post TVH with A/P repairs and a bladder sling. My former uterus was prolapsed as well. I am off narcotics and down to an occasional
Dose of motrin and tylenol. I have basically been in bed on my heating pad since my one overnight stay in the hospital. The biggest issues are gas and constipation, which seems to be most peoples issues, but i am hoping that shall pass- pun intended
There is a pressure, bur not really pain anymore in my abdominal area. When i get up, i tire easily and then back down. Lots of peeing and it is hard to tell if my bladder is truly empty. But... I think each day has defintely gotten better... Take as much time off as you can!! I ran around like mad before, cleaning, shopping, cooking and trying to get everything organized to not do anything post op. i am ignoring the messes and hired aersona chef to cme and and make a weeks worth if organic food for me and my family... A luxury, but sooo nice!

Good luck and just breathe... It will come and go before you know it!

Going in tomorrow, 2-2-21 @ 7:30am. I am soooo nervous it's not even funny. I'm so glad it's going to be so early this way I won't think about it too much. I know I will not sleep at al tonight so I guess I'll keep myself busy with little things.... Please wish me luck! Thanks. See you when I can focus a little more.

Re: Vaginal hysterectomy...Feels like what after surgery?

I had Davinci LAVH on Friday. There was NO PAIN! I felt more pain the weeks leading up to surgery. I felt a little crampy the first nite, so a little discomfort, but pain level was 0 the next morning!! I have not needed pain meds since day 2 (and only needed ibuprofen-like meds). I am amazed at how great I feel! Good luck with your surgery!

Had the Da Vinci TVH 1/31/12 and for me at least it is just some heavy gas pains in abdominal area and above my belly button. So far I do not notice any pains or pressure in my vaginal area.. Just a slight twinge here and there..
