Had my LAVH last Thursday...

So I had my LAVH this past Thursday. Was able to keep both ovaries. Stayed overnight in hospital one night.

Feeling okay for most part. Have pain when I lay down for a few moments. Uncomfortable other than that. And I am EXHAUSTED! Can't get over how tired I am.

I was very nauseated the first few days. Threw up a few times in the hospital the day after surgery.

My biggest thing now is that I have still not been able to poop! Is this normal?! I spoke with my nurse today and she said to wait a few days and then call. I took Miralax a few days ago (just half a dose though) and then a full dose a few hours ago. Fingers crossed I have some movement this evening!

Re: Had my LAVH last Thursday...

Dd your doctor have you taking stool softeners? I was told to take them twice per day, I added in Miralax for a couple times when I didn't go or a few days. You also need to drink lots and lots of water. Some people find prune juice helps and eating fiber rich foods.
