More questions to ask doctor


I am not certain where to post this so I will post here. Besides what is posted here already in regards to questions to ask. Are there more questions to ask besides what has already been put down? I have typed up the questions that I have seen here but just wondered if there were more. The questions for before, during, and after.

Thank you,

Stephanie Grohol

Re: More questions to ask doctor

I found it helpful to keep a notepad handy for a week before doctors appt and write down questions as I thought of them. I wanted to know details like:
Will I have mesh placed inside me
How does he get the uterus out through my vagina
Without my uterus supporting my vagina how does it not collapse
How long will I be in surgery
What will I be given for pain and how long will I need pain meds
How much time will I need off work?
If he does need to do an abdominal cut, will he cut thru the tattoo on my tummy?

Try to get as many details about what to expect during recovery. A lot of docs seem to be pretty vague about this.
