Advice I would give - ask for the patch if you are prone to nausea.

i had major abdominal surgery a couple of weeks ago and my surgeon would not discharge me unless i moved my bowels, so i sat in the toilet for an hour until something came out! try sitting in the toilet with a magazine or something to help you relax, if you think about pooing all the time it doesn't help. you need to relax and take it easy. give it some time, it's only been a few days since your surgery, i remember i only pooed on my fifth day.
Greetings, I don't think you need to worry about pregnancy <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hysterectomy</span> if you indeed had a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hysterectomy</span>. You can always request your surgical pathoology report to confirm. Your symptoms may be related to your recent weight gain. I recommend that you follow up with your primary care physician for review and further evaluation for depression and thyroid disease both of which are common with unwanted weight gain. Best wishes!
1/4 inch scars ) I had this method for my hysterectomy also. what to expect...<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> it will hurt , sounds like you have been in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> awhile.

after having a complete <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hysterectomy</span> my husband and I had a much better sex life because there was no <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> any more. Like you, I have seen some women here wonder how the removal of their cervix will effect their sex life. I wish I could tell you for sure that you will have absolutely no sexual problems. I can't, No one could tell me either before my surgery. I can tell you that I had complete trust in my Dr, just like you. He did an excellent job.
I did have some <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gas</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> in my shoulders soon <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> I woke in recovery. But...I had surgery on Monday and I really feel great. My belly isn't really as sore as I thought it would be. My instructions are activities as tolerated. But, I am taking it easy just to be sure. I only have to miss a week of work. I can get up and down easy. No problems going to the bathroom either. So.. I would recommend this as an easy option to anyone if they get to choose.
I had a vaginal <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hysterectomy</span> two days ago and came home <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> one night in the hospital. Shouldn't I have been given an antibiotic to come home with?
I am extremely nervous about it as my mother also had a full <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hysterectomy</span> and started bleeding <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> 20 years. She died 2 years later from rectal cancer that spread from her abdominal area. I do have a doctors appointment but I am very uncomfortable about him doing a pap. He makes me feel that all this **** is in my head...
