Common Questions and Answers about Hysterectomy recovery gas

hysterectomy

Was is the recovery time for a hysto., how will I be out of work, etc. The dr did say it would have to be a total hysto and could not be done vaginally, because of the large fibroids. Is it possible I could come home the same day or the next morn.?
one problem immediatley post op many women have is the abdomen is distended with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gas</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gas</span> gets trapped ( not all) but its not like regular <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gas</span> its trapped in abdomen cavity you have to work it into intestines to get rid of..way to do that walking.. just remember post op the least you do the more you lay around read, do crosswords watch tv ( you get me) the better and quicker you will heal,,,do NOT lift use heat have sex do house work drive a car....
rest is the key to a great recovery, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gas</span> problems can also be relieved by walking do not walk stairs, Isimply walked circles around the lower level of my home and the gas does release its self...do not hold it in let it go,,, And a reminder as Banaman and I bithe already stated diet is important start with liquids ( no red or purple) and work up to soft foods, avoid spicy, greasy. You should bea ble to be on your regular diet by week 2 max.
I have to get a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hyster</span>ec<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>my on 10/24/07. What is the recovery period for this? how long is the hospital stay?
I did have some <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gas</span> pain in my shoulders soon after 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.

yes, I have been diagnosed with fibroids and over the past couple of days have been really uncomfortable due to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gas</span>. My doctor recommended a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hyster</span>ec<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>my, but I would like to explore other options. Could you tell me the name and contact number for your doctor. Thanks.
i am 46 yrs old, never had children nor a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hyster</span>ec<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>my, but about a yr ago i started having odorless, vaginal <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gas</span> that gradually become more frequent. all the drs i went to told me it had to be a fistula, that there was nothing else that could cause it. the gastroenterologist wanted to do all kinds of tests, including a colonoscopy and some kind of enema that a diagnostic clinic does-i can't think of the name now. it's something like garrafin or garragrafin enema.
I recently had a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hyster</span>ec<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>my on June 20, 2005. The last couple of days I have been having very sharp adominal pain on the right side. in addition, I seem to have more bowel movements a day with major gas pains. I also have some numbness on the right side of my pubic area and thigh. I am not sure if this is normal or just part of the recovery.
It sounds like some of your pain could be from <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gas</span>. Try taking some gasX and drinking some hot tea. If it is <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gas</span>, this should help you out some. Also, you need to call the Dr. tomorrow and demand that they see you. You should not have to live on narcotics to feel better. As I advised to another poster, maybe you should remind them that YOU pay thier salary. This of course may tick them off, but maybe it will help you get an appointment asap. Keep us posted.
people who have their cervix removed during a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hyster</span>ec<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>my will NOT have a period. i am suprised your dr did not inform you of this. i had a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hyster</span>ec<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>my, with only 1 ovary remaining, and my dr told me i will still ovulate, i just wont have a period because my uterus AND cervix were removed.
I just had surgery on Friday to remove a 9 cm ovarian cyst on my left ovary and remove my right ovary and tubes. I just had a partial <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hyster</span>ec<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>my 14 months ago and left the ovaries and tubes - big mistake with hindsight. I was having a lot of pain and discomfort, and was supposed to have removed laporascopically. The doctor got in and spent over 2.
Hello all, I know it seems strange to be excited about a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hyster</span>ec<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>my but I am praying this is the solution and answers to all my issues. I am so glad to get approval as my gyn office was so sure I wouldn't get it. Thank you to everyone on here who has prayed for me. It worked!! Now, any suggestions or advice about the surgery and/or recovery will be greatly appreciated!! Thank you to everyone. You all are truly the best!
Having issues over the last year. how do you know what type <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hyster</span>ec<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>my is right for you and what to take out? I think I am heading closer to that decision in the coming year.What are the biggest complications post surgery besides infection. incontinence??continued pain?how long does surgery take and how long in hospital?
Since my mother had the same symptoms I now have, and she had uterine cancer which had already metastasized to the bowel, liver, and diaphragm by the time she had any blatant vaginal bleeding, should I first of all insist I be put into the OR under a general anesthetic so the doctor can have a direct look around and take biopsies OR should I just insist on a hysterectomy? Will the doctors do this on my request?
A little over a week ago I had an abdominal <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hyster</span>ec<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>my. I had my staples removed 4 days ago and steri-strips applied at the doctors office. The incision over all is healing well but there is about a 2 inch section that is swollen and red. I spoke with the doctors office and they said to not worry keep cleansing it and apply 1/2 strengh peroxide. My question is this this part of the incision the top is swollen and off set from the bottom of the incision.
I'm so sorry to learn that you had a difficult recovery. The recovery from my laparoscopy procedure last year was also long and painful. I found that the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gas</span> inside your body hurt more than the incision site at your belly button and every single move you make (even if someone bumps your bed) feels like sharp axes that are pushed into your body and the gas takes forever and a day to finally get out.
Hi I am having laparscopy surgery Monday to remove a Large simple cyst (alien) 19x15x9 left ovary and tube, and to remove dermoid cyst from right ovary. I have been advised the recovery time for this will be 2 weeks max, however due to the size I may have to have open surgery the recovery time is longer 6-8 weeks. You shouldn't need to cancel any of your plans! Good luck to you!
I had a toTAL <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hyster</span>EC<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>MY 25 years ago (pan <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hyster</span>ec<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>my) I am 68 and have been having a vaginal odor and some clear discharge for about three months. I cannot see the discharge, but asm aware of the odor. Yesterday i bought tampons and inserted one last night. When I removed it this morning, it was bloody with bright red blood. Afer i removed the tampon, I got a bloody discharge. My gynecologist is out of her office untl Monday, so hope to find out something then.
They put you on the maternity ward for recovery. My roommate had a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hyster</span>ec<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>my and it upset her too. Not that you planned on having more kids, but when you know you can't, it's hard to hear babies crying. The best thing I found is to talk about it, and not everyone in your family wants to hear about it. So forums like this are great. I just wanted others to know it's ok to be scared. And don't lessen the importance of this just because it's benign. You've still had a major life event!
You may be dealing with actual symptoms from the surgery for the first month, but then you have to slowly regain your strength and fitness. I took 3 - 4 weeks off work, then spent the rest of recovery time to just doings at my own pace. I was very dizzy and very naeucious for a long time after my surgery which made things really difficult. But everything got better after around 6 weeks. I didnt drive for about a month either. It sounds like you are doing great.
