TAH scheduled 8/22...wondering about recovery


I just finished up 6 weeks of chemo, internal and external radiation after being diagnosed with Stage 2b cervical cancer 4/16/14. I have a TAH scheduled for 8/22 and I am curious about recovery time, the worst symptoms people felt after surgery and the incision! I know it will be a horizontal incision.
I have never had an abnormal pap smear and this was only diagnosed because I bled for almost 1 month straight, so the last 4 months have been a whirlwind!
Thank you all

Please feel free to start a new thread there (just as you did here) so your sisters can share their experiences. You may also wish to check out your surgery category in Our Hysterectomy Stories forum, too.
