Two weeks post hysterectomy - pain management

Hello everyone! I am new to the group so I am still a smidge unsure of how everything works so I hope that I am posting in the correct thread.

I had my hysterectomy on July 3rd. There were some unexpected complications during the procedure. My endometrious was far worse than had anticipated and I ended up with a total hysterectomy with bilateral oopherectomy and salpingectomy via Da Vinci and vaginal. Not exactly what I was anticipating but I had pretty much had it with the not stop periods and the cramping.

Now that I have my background info out of the way, I was wondering if anyone else has had this type of hysterectomy with significant dissection due to endometrious? I am very fortunate that I did not end up with a colostomy and urostomy. I am also curious how other women are doing with pain levels, meds, and activity?

Re: pain management

Your story sounds somewhat like mine without the robotic part. I was sore and had quite a bit of pain. For three days my doc told me to take narcotics and ibuprofen together. I did and stayed on top of it. After that I was able to alternate them. If you feel your meds aren't handling your pain properly, please give him or her a call and find out if they want to make a change. I'm sorry you hurt.

I used a heating pad for pain . Took Tylenol or Advil during day and norco at night first couple if wks.

Glad you didn't have to have the ostomys!!
