      Hi rosemary

      I think you need to start a new discussion to get some answers. I think that's where they do the ablation? I think my nurse told me she had that done and later had to have hysterectomy. I guess depends on womans success depending on size of fibroid and age if close to menapause.

    I had the same problem. The nurses were literally waiting for me to use the bathroom before discharging me. I ended up being given a total of 3 liquid laxatives, and a drink of laxative plus I was given a tablet form which I chose not to take. This was over the course of two days. Things definitely started moving about an hour before I was discharged. Still finding things a bit difficult, but getting used to letting gravity do its job as it hurts my stomach if I ‘help. I’m 14 days post op today. Seems very odd, this time two weeks ago I was still driving to the hospital as I had an evening surgery appointment.

      Really wow they were going to release me that night but the pain was so bad and I was throwing up. It took me 4 maybe 5 day though before I was able to😬 I bought cereal like izekial with no sugar ans drank it with flax seed non dairy milk at sprouts and put flax in there as well. This stuff is no fun. Good luck on your recovery.
