To LRemaly;

I just got my operative and path reports this week - I phoned the hospital, and the lady faxed me a consent - I signed it, faxed it back, and had both reports in about 2 minutes. I don't know if all hospitals/doctors are this cooperative.

Comparison to c-section

Hi Kathleen,
I'm 42 and had 4 previous c-sections, the last one was 12 years ago. I had a TAH 3 weeks ago yesterday and I found it to be much easier than the c-sections. I had a lot of adhesions and the dr. had to spend extra time "unsticking" things. For me getting in and out of bed didn't hurt like it did after the c-sections. I didn't walk hunched over like after the c-sections. I didn't have the pain I did after the c-sections. I haven't experienced any tiredness or drop in energy level. In fact if I could get my dr. to clear me for waterskiing I'd be going. That's been the hardest part for me. I feel so great I have to keep reminding myself that there are a lot of internal stitches and even though you might feel great you still have to rest and follow drs. orders.

I know everyone is different. I do think that at the very least a previous c-section gives you some idea of what to expect. I hope you have an easy recovery.

Comparison to c-section

I asked my doc about the pain difference and he said his patients tell him the hyster is a little more severe than the c's, but not much. I think I handled by c's pretty good, but really dread going thru that shaky getting out of bed thing again :sad:

Well, I can tell you this much, Kaymac, everyone is different, don't forget that!

I remember my male OB telling me that I wasn't really in pain when I was in active labor with my second kid. I told him how would he know? I was in transition at the time. The look on his face!

I've been wondering too

Hi all

I'm new here and was glad to see this thread. I was just talking with DH about that this morning. My Dr is planning a horizontal for my TAH RSO - I've had 3 vertical cuts - 2 Cs and LSO, and 2 laps - tubal and gall bladder. I know that the laps were way easier of course, and my Dr tells me the horizontal will be easier than the verticals. I'm really hoping - but I'm trying to not get my hopes up too high. I've done that before and then been really bummed when I woke up and had so much pain.

Take care
