Common Questions and Answers about Hysterectomy recovery bladder problems

hysterectomy

I am schedule to have a hysterectomy in a couple weeks, and my concern is will my stomach go back to normal? Will I gain weight? Should I diet during recovery. Can't afford to buy new clothing right now... Will my sex life remain exciting?
I have heard that the ureters can get damaged during a hysterectomy ( the tube coming down from the kidneys to the bladder) and wonder if it also possible for other areas to be affected. Did you have any form of supportive stitches etc to the top of your vagina as well? I would advise you to go back to your Urogynecologist asap to discuss all areas of the operation you have had with regard to your present symptoms.
i had hysterectomy last august and operation for prolapse bladder two weeks ago.if anyone has this problem,i would say go for the surgury.well worth it..
The uterus and cervix will be removed, ovaries, if needed, and then the bladder and the rectum will be repaired as needed. Mesh will be used to sling the bladder up where it is supposed to be. I will also be have a little bit of plastic surgery down there. My surgeon does this all. The plastic surgery will be to ensure that things stay in place and hopefully to make sex more intense for both of us...
I had the option of them just taking my ovaries and tubes or doing a total hysterectomy. One of the Dr's. recommended the total hysterectomy as I have several fibroids. The main Dr. (this is a teaching hospital - I've never had so many people in the room!) said it will extend the surgery by an hour and she didn't really offer an opinion other than to say if it is cancer they will take everything and do staging etc.
it was actually 2 gynocologists, my regular doctor did the hysterectomy, and the other who specializes in bladder sling surgery did the bladder.. and the doctor who did the bladder sling part says that the reason that it is taking me longer to heal is because the Wed.
I have just been told I have a cystocele,rectocyle and dropping of the bladder by my urogynochologist. I had my bladder repaired with a sling 5 years ago. I am having urgency problems at present and lower back pain all the time. My doctor suggested further testing to see if my bladder is emptying all the way. He also talked about possible surgery again. I'm concerned about having surgery again.
I had hysto Dec 06 and I too had problems controlling my bladder and couldn't tell when my bladder was full no sense of having to urinate. Sometimes I would lean or put pressure on my kidneys to help release fluid...After 5 months of this, I started doing my kegle (?)exercise & would squat in the shower or bathtub and tighten and release my muscles and repeat this number of times. I am now able to feel the urge to urinate and can control my bladder...
I'm having the exact same problems you are having. Did you have the hysterectomy? I don't know what to do. I did have a diagnostic lapr. done on 10/19/12. My doctor found that my uterus was fused to my abdomen. She cut my uterus off my abdomen, then looked around to make sure my bowls were in tact, and nothing else was out of the ordinary. My first two days out of surgery I felt amazing. My stomach went down, my back, and leg pains were gone.
Hello: I have a history of problems-cysts; tumors on the ovaries removed years ago; infertility; miscarriages and finally had two sons via c/s. I went in for an overdue pap, etc. and a very large polyp was found in my uterus. The dr. said, "good size; No, VERY large". He said it had thickened the lining of the uterus alot and had a very rich blood supply going. I have had very, very heavy periods-so heavy It is hard to go out during the first days of my period.
my stomach above my scar is still really painful aswell. i feel like i havnt healed properly on the inside and have bladder control problems as well. i am just making an appointment with my consultant to be checked out , but would like to know how long it is before the pain goes. my seven month old baby keeps standing up on my lap and really hurting my stomach as he tries to climb me.
The GYN I have consulted with offered alternative of mirena- but due to extensive problems with hormonal birth control in past I don't want any hormonal treatment. Dr is currently suggesting ablation even though I have had classic csection. Stated he can analyze and measure scar area and determine if possible. I can not find any information on ablation following classic csection except that FDA and manufacturers do not recommend it. Also concerned if ablation will solve problem.
my lady had a hysterectomy yesterday what is best thing i can do to help the recovery ig 1st day 2 weeks
Hello, I was wondering if any of you all have been put on hormones after a total hysterectomy. My doctor says there are too many risks and I don't need them...I am 38. I don't know what to expect here 2 weeks after surgery, I keep waiting for a hotflash or something weird to happen. :) What can happen if I don't take them? I've had nightmares of growing hair on my face or my voice getting manly. Are my fears real? Can anyone share their experience or knowledge about hormones?
My doctor, who I trust and who did my last surgery, recommends a hysterectomy for me with my problems and Mothers history. I have heard horror stories about it and the homorne therapy decision. Is it best for me to get it all out or roll the dice? My sister who is 1 year older than me just had a hysterectomy with no hormone therapy. Is it better to do it that way? I am scheduled for surgery this Wednesday and I feel very confused. I am afraid of what may be on my ovary.
Hi. The use of sling procedures dated back a century ago and this has been used extensively for women with urinary incontinence. The use of slings have evolved ( see url below) and so does the improvement and skills that come with successfully completing the procedure. However, sling procedures do bring with them their share of complications . Hematoma and bladder perforations as well as erosions of nearby structures such as the vagina in your case may be expected.
I too am having bleeding problems after my full hysterectomy in 2000. I've been to 4 different doctors and have had 2 pap smears which both came back normal, The doctors say they can't see anything wrong and made it seem like it was alll in my head, one even suggested it was hemmoroids but I know the blood is not comming from there, I feel stupid going to yet another doctor but I'm also afraid of what it could be, I also have little tiny bumps on my vulva.
Anyone have knowledge or experience with gall bladder problems, or preventative gall bladder surgery? Any helpful comments will be greatly appreciated. Cheers!
but I had hoped this would be the end of the pop journey, but because I have pelvic floor dysfunction (nervous system will not allow the pf muscles and nerves to work together properly) about 11 months out I began having a hard time having a bm and emptying my bladder...I had a pretty good feeling I had a new pop...
I had problems with retained placenta and pelvic congestion (variciou veins) which led to a hysterectomy 5 years ago. Things did improve, however I still have had this pain I decribed since than. My urologist said I have a prolapsed bladder, he is waiting to do surgery on that until after this next surgery. I'am discouraged thinking of going through another surgery!
After suffering from cysts, first on one ovary (which resulted in its removal), then a year later more problems with cysts along with adenomyosis, I had a total hysterectomy in March 08. I'm on the Climara patch and feel great, better than I've felt in a long time. I'm 49 and my recovery took longer than the 6 weeks. Actually, at nearly 7 months out I still, very occasionally, feel that fatigued feeling. I kind of hit the ground running 3 weeks out of surgery, though.
I recovered from the hysterectomy with no problems and was back at work within 4 weeks. He sent me to a urogynecologist for the bladder suspension and the weakened vaginal walls. The urogynecologist determined I needed a rectocele along with the bladder suspension. He is repairing the rectocele with mesh. I've been reading comments/concerns when it comes to these surgeries and a lot have not been good. I'm terrified of the recovery time and the pain associated with it.
Having a hysterectomy is not all bad. I am 32 Years old and had lap assisted vaginal hysterectomy 4 weeks ago. I had endometriosis, cysts covering my overies, fibroids and a chocolate cyst in my left overies. also family history of ovarian cancer. I just thought I woud be in pain for the rest of my life. My dr suggested that I had an endometrial ablation because of my age. So on May 27th I did just that. However I was still bleeding and the pains only got worse.
Expect 2 to 4 weeks of recovery, with some lifting and straining restrictions that could extend beyond this period. da Vinci Hysterectomy offers numerous potential benefits over traditional approaches to vaginal, laparoscopic or open abdominal hysterectomy, particularly when performing more challenging procedures like radical hysterectomy for gynecologic cancer.
Now there are some theories that the blood supply to the ovaries might diminish, as it does in regular menopause, but you will benefit immensely (in my opinion) having them still there. People giving you horror stories are not helping. A radical hysterectomy and a hysterectomy are two different things and you had a hysterectomy. There is hope!
My 30 year old wife had a hysterectomy 3 months ago. They took the uterus and cervix but kept the ovaries. I certainly can't understand what she is going through, but I try to be as supportive as I can. Physically she feels fine, but she seems like a different person to me. Her Dr. put her on Cymbalta for depression which seemed to help, but she stopped taking it and I don't dare ask about it.
2) Can both - fibroid / uterus and gall bladder be removed at the same time? How will it affect the recovery period? 3) What would be best option - total hysterectomy (uterus, cervix and fallopian tubes) or partial (uterus and fallopian tubes only)? 4) Can we wait till August to do the operation - doctor is worried about the statement - "Prominent flow voids seen along the anterior and posterior aspect of the fibroid suggesting increased vascularity" and degeneration in the middle.
The most common recovery period is two weeks at home. I can't imagine a mere 3 or 4 days to recover. Is this to remove a cyst? If so, what size? Do they know how many laparoscopic incisions they plan to make? (it is usually more than one) Sometimes a person goes in for laparoscopic surgery and ends up getting a laparotomy (open surgery) when the small incisions are just too small for them to work. That requires an at-home recovery of about six weeks and a longer hospital stay.
