Re: Pain management

You're not going to know until you get there. Some women find that they never need narcotics at all and do fine on a mixture of Tylenol and an NSAID such as ibuprofen, naproxen or toradol. Other women - this would include me - need narcotics for a few days before switching over to non-narcotics. And finally some women need narcotics for a couple/few weeks.

If you've got particular issues with any meds - you're allergic to opioids, you can't tolerate NSAIDs, etc - let your doctor and anesthesiologist know well before surgery. They can make plans to work with your issues, but only if they have the information.

Re: Pain management

I took extra strength Tylenol starting day 2. I was prescribed Percocet but I don’t do well with Percocet and switched after not feeling well on it. I don’t think the Tylenol would have been enough for me the first 24 hrs afterwards. My primary wanted my to avoid nsaids during my recovery. I found the Tylenol worked well when I started it.

I went home with only Ibuprofen and only needed that for a day. I had davinci which I don’t think is that different then your surgery. Heat and ice on my belly helped the most. Best wishes!!

Re: Pain management

I had a TAH with a 2 night hospital stay. I had an epidural for about the first 20 hours but it was removed early the 1st morning post op, after that the hospital gave me tylenol, I could of had stronger but didn't need it. Once home I only needed ibuprofen for about a week Not telling until after your surgery what you will need but let your doctors know your concerns.

Re: Upcoming hysterectomy 11/8: Pain management post-op


I had an LSH with a 1 night hospital stay, and my prescription included Oxycodone, naproxen - an NSAID like ibuprofen - and acetaminophen. The Oxycodone made me throw up, so I had to stop taking it after 3 days, and I found that I was okay alternating the other two; by day 5, I found that I no longer needed anything. To minimize stomach upset from the naproxen, my doctor advised me to take it with food, as is commonly recommended for these medications, plus he prescribed an acid blocker to provide added protection. Avoiding foods that stimulate excess acid production, or can otherwise irritate your stomach, while you're taking these medications can also help; that includes dairy products, tomatoes, peppers, citrus fruits, coffee, carbonated or alcoholic drinks, and chocolate. Best wishes for a successful surgery and a smooth recovery!

Let your doctor and anesthesiologist know this, as you can be given anti-nausea meds to help combat this. The administration of opioids via IV during surgery is pretty standard, so you need to let them know.
