LAVH Incisions??

I was wondering about my incisions I have 4 of them one on the left, one on the right, one in my belly button and a small one where you normally would have a c-section (which I never had one before) ....I'm not quite sure what that was for and why it's there it's really annoying can't really wear anything but sweats and barely can wear those.

I thought and was told that the surgery I had LAVH would be 3 incisions and removal of uterus and cervix through the vaginal.

I didn't realized I had that there until I got home of course I google LAVH surgery and still only 3 incisions and I don't see my until next Thursday

Does anyone know about or had the samething?

Re: LAVH Incisions??

Mine was only 3. Belly Button,One to left of Belly Button and then the one where C-Section was. Of course I was cut up inside my vagina a couple times for removal and the sling. I would ask your doctor. Oh yes I had a LAVH/BSO/Anterior Needleless Bladder Sling.

LAVH Incisions??

I have one tiny cut (2 stiches) on lower left by bikini line and one on lower right bikini line and one small one (4 stiches) in my belly button. I wonder why its different between all of us for the same surgery?

Re: LAVH Incisions??

I had LAVH with only three very small incisions. One on the lower right and one on the lower left side under the bikini line and another one in my belly button. Each of them only one stitch.

I also had some big scratches on the whole left side of my tummy and wonder, where they are from :-/
