Time length of surgery?

Oh wow, thanks! I had no idea it took that long. For some reason, I have had in my head that it was a relativly quick operation.

Time length of surgery?

It depends on individual patient circumstances as well as the surgeon- and you won't know for sure until they actually do the operation. A TAH can be done in 45 minutes (sometimes less), but can take a couple of hours. A word to the wise: don't go to the doctor who brags he can do a hyst in 20 minutes. The better doctors take as long as needed to do the job right.

I had a TAH/BSO, the works. I went in at about 1 pm and wasn't out of surgery until 3 or so (I didn't wake until about 5). I had endo, but it was relatively under control from a previous lap surgery. So, it was quite uneventful (according to the doc) and it still took that long.

They told us from 1-3 hours. It was 3 hours, found some nice adhesions. Lucky me!

My surgery was longer than average. I was told it would be about 2 hours-2 1/2 tops. As it turned out, there was a lot more to do than anticipated and it lasted 5 hours. I just think you should prepare your family and friends on the waiting end that the surgery COULD last longer. I hope and pray yours is the norm! Good luck to you!

Time length of surgery?

My surgery was seven hours, as I had anticipated. Very bad stuff up in there. I was told pre-operatively that it averages 2 hours. I think prior surgerical experiences can some times be indicative of the length.

Mine was 5 1/2 hours. Dr told me and the family it would be from 4-6 hrs long so everyone was prepared for a long wait. Ann
