Upcoming hysterectomy: 2 questions about hospital stay and pain pump

I am having my surgery monday morning at 8 am. My doctor does the davinci hysterectomy as an outpatient procedure. She will also be giving me an On Q which is a pain pump that will automatically dispense pain medicine into my abdomen. I am debating on wether or not I should ask to stay over night in the hospital??? Anyone have any suggstions? My mom lives over an hour from the hospital that I am having the surgery at and I would hate to get home and have something happen and then end up in a hospital closer to her home where I don't know the doctors. Any comments would be greatly appreciated

Re: 2 questions about hospital stay and pain pump

I am not sure how to advise you on extending your hospital stay. I had abdominal surgery and did opt to stay for an extra day, because I wanted to be certain that I could move around enough to take care of myself before I went home. I did want to let you know that my doctor also used the On Q pump for me, and I can honestly say that I never experienced what I would call "pain." There was definitely discomfort and it was not easy to move around, but there was only one time that I asked for anything stronger than Motrin, and that was because I was hoping that it would help me to sleep at night. I had the pump in until the second day after the surgery and I never felt it, but I am certain that it helped me. Best of luck with your procedure and I wish you a very speedy recovery. Take care!

I've had both! The pain pump after my Tummy Tuck! It worked wonders.
For the DaV I just took opiates for first couple of days...after that Tylenol. I found the pain wasn't bad, in my personal recovery.

Re: 2 questions about hospital stay and pain pump

I came home with an OnQ pump after my mircofracture knee surgery and had zero pain the three days it was in place. After seeing how my mom suffered postoperative after her knee replacement I think OnQ is the sweetest little ball of medicine you can have.
