I will be having a TAH with a bladder tack on March 1st. I asked if he couldn't do it vaginally because I have read that the recovery time might be less and I really don't need to take time off work! He said he had to do it abdominally because my uterus wouldn't come down. I have never heard of this before. Has anyone else out there had this problem?

He said he would go in the same incision as when he delivered my DD by c-section.

I also asked for a bladder tack because since having my DD when I sneeze or cough I wet myself. My DH makes fun of me because I have to stop what I'm doing when I need to sneeze and cross my legs as to not wet myself! The dr. was telling me that it would make my recovery time a little longer and that I might have to use a catheter at home. Is this true?

I am not scheduled until April 26, but I am having some of the same repair work ( TAH and repairs for cystocele and rectocele ). The surgeon doing the bladder repair told me today that I would have 2 catheters in the hospital. She said one would be removed after surgery, but that the one in my abdomen would remain with me when I come home. The abdominal one will have a plug or valve. When I can completely empty my bladder, it will be removed. She also told me to take a medical leave of at least 12 weeks. Everyone is different. So, your situation and Doctor's advice might not be the same. This is just what my Doctors have said in my situation. Hopefully, someone who has experience this will be along shortly.
