pre-op nerves

I didn't have any wind problems at all. I walked a lot after surgery, and the doc prescribed a suppository to get my bowels moving. I drank lots of water and ate fruits and veggies. I guess the later bothers some women, but I believe it was the key to getting myself back on track.

Hi there - I'm also in the UK - I've sent you a PM (private message) so be sure to go check!!

You've come to the right place - this site is the best - I've had so many of my questions answered and although I'm still nervous (my surgery is scheduled the day after yours), I've made some excellent friends here.

cwmole is right - you have come to the right place for hyst info! Here is the link to the Pre-op hints on this site Pre-Op Hysterectomy Articles I think you will find a lot of helpful information among those posts.

As far as the post-surgery wind - I did not have a problem with that. (Didn't seem to suffer with as much gas distress as some of the sisters. Lucky me!)

Just keep reading & posting and I am sure you will find the answer to about any question you could ask.

Take care.
