6 days post op

Today is day 6 of post op recovery. It has been a rough week for me. I had a total vaginal hysterectomy and I was able to keep my ovaries. I think the worst part for me so far has been the gas pains!! They have been horrible! I was only in the hospital for one day, which I must say was way to short! I had a few complications during surgery but I don't think it was anything to major. I was sent home with a catheter because I was unable to completely empty my bladder on my own after surgery. That was also very miserable! Today so far is a good day for me, but it is still early. I must also say, I am so very thankful for my family and friends! Without the help of my loving children and fiance, I would never have been able to get through this week! I hope everyone is doing well. Talk to you all soon.

Love and Light,

Gypsie

Re: 6 days post op

Your bowels and bladder were both impacted by the surgery, and it may take a while for each of them to begin functioning properly again. Even after 3 months, I find that my system is not as efficient at pushing through the gas, so I still sometimes get bloated and uncomfortable.

I am glad that you have been well supported by your family. It will get gradually better with each passing day, so there is hope! Take care and be well.
