Upcoming hysterectomy 12/9: Has anyone had surgery after having COVID?

I was scheduled for my hysterectomy on 11/11. Unfortunately someone in my office didn't care to take precautions and our entire office came down with Covid. I got a positive result 1 day before surgery. Thankfully I had a very mild case and didn't get a ton of symptoms the others did. I tested positive again 2 weeks later and will get another test this Sunday in hopes of going through with my surgery in 1 week.
Long way to get to my question....
I am wondering if anyone has had covid and then had surgery? Were there additional complications? I am concerned about more blood clots and issues with my lungs after. If anyone has dealt with this if appreciate anything you have to offer.

Upcoming hysterectomy 12/9: Has anyone had surgery after having COVID?

I’m scheduled for 12/9. I tested positive for Covid at the end of September. I had a mild case. The hospital’s policy is not to retest for Covid if the patient has tested positive within 90 days. It’s my understanding that you can continue to test positive even if you are not contagious during this window.
I’m hopeful that my surgery will go on as scheduled. The hospital is reassessing their Covid situation and available beds on Monday. I will let you know how everything goes.
Good luck to you!

I talked to the hospital today and they said if I test post again I may have to wait but there is no protocol really. Unfortunately this week my hospital is at capacity in the ICU so I am not sure how that will affect next week's elective surgeries. Please keep me updated and I will you as we have the same surgery date ...HUGS

Re: Upcoming hysterectomy 12/9: Has anyone had surgery after having COVID?

I had Covid in March and kidney stone surgery in August. The only issue I had was the feeling I needed to clear my throat alot for days afterward. I was told by my Dr. to do deep breathing exercises frequently throughout the day before and after surgery to help break up anything in the lungs both pre and post surgery. In addition, he had me walk every hour after surgery until he saw me at the end of the week. This was to help with possible blood clots (I have a history of them). I have hysterectomy scheduled for 12/18 so I have already started the deep breathing exercises back again (I meditate at sametime, which helps stress level), walking to build up strength and hopefully limit the increased risk my history presents for blood clots, and laid in a supply of sugar free candy to help with the throat issue. Be careful on the candy though, read ingredients if it is sweetened with Maltiol be aware that Malitol can cause gastric distress in some. Good Luck and best wishes for speedy recovery.

I am so sorry. I am not hopefully it will happen for me either, but prepared just in case. Our governor scheduled an additional media conference to talk about it.

Upcoming hysterectomy 12/9: Has anyone had surgery after having COVID?

Sorry you had that experience. I was on lockdown with my brother for 5 months Jan to May 2020 helping him with chemo. I am a germaphobe anyway and then the world has a pandemic. Really??

I am an institutional researcher and took every precaution from day 1 (Jan 2020) when I heard about China's outbreak at the end of 2019. I double masked; ordered groceries and washed everything outside in bleach water (even the outside of bread bag) before bringing it inside the house; took off clothes in garage and washed them immediately, bleached house consistently, and sprayed air with Lysol almost daily.

I ended up being scheduled for surgery back in my city in July (tentatively) and ordered an in-home covid test when I got back in town - independent of my doctor's orders. As expected it was negative and so was my brother's multiple tests (Thank God). Finally, I went to my doctor's office following that initial serology lab test for consultation and examination. (Note: I was double masked - a practice I used since Jan 2020; I didn't even go outside to exercise). However, I went for consultation and made the decision to go forward with the surgery. That was the only place I had been in 5 months outside of driving myself back home from my brother's house 4 hours away!!! He and I are both single and live alone.

I went to get tested before the surgery and the test was positive! My mouth dropped open. Initial reaction was shock because I just had a test one week before and it was negative. So, I put my scientific hat on and asked my doctor's staff probing questions and found that someone had been in the office with an active infection and the information was not shared with other patients - Contact Tracing Much?!?! Thankfully, I was spared any noticeable symptoms (Thank God) and I had the surgery in August after quarantine and testing negative for covid. My surgery had zero complications and all went like textbook. You will have your preoperative blood work up and if anything is abnormal your doctor will advise before moving forward but as long as you are negative for covid you can have a reasonable degree of confidence that the virus is not active and all is back on track internally.

I pray you have a successful surgery and recovery. Take care!!

I am so sorry that you had to deal with that and I am thankful you had a mild
case. I was scheduled it go in tomorrow but it has been cancelled because mine will require an overnight stay. Our hospital has cancelled all surgery that requires a stay indefinitely. I think having it cancelled for the 2nd time has me worn down and all the same uncomfortableness that I have grown to deal with will have to stick around a bit longer. I am more snippy, overwhelmed easily and down right not happy. I know this will pass and I will get my surgery at some point but it is good to hear and be reminded that the Dr won't put me in harm if all doesn't look right. Hopefully it won't last until June like last time but I will deal with my cards as they come.
